Lee, seeking her second Olympic medal in Athens, was handed a
27-point penalty for foul when starting in race five.
"That affected me a little bit," said Lee. "But I've already
tried my best, so I feel OK about the result."
France's Faustine Merret was the final winner on 31 points,
andChina's Yin Jian took silver.
Lee gave thumbs-up to Yin who was making her first Olympic

be a title favorite at the 2008 Olympics," said Lee.
