After the Olympics

Wilkinson thought about retiring after the 2000 Olympics, but she found that she missed the water and the competition. After having surgery to rebreak and reset the fused bones in her right foot on November 14, 2000, she returned to competitive diving at the national outdoor championships in August 2001. She placed fifth in the platform event at the 2001 outdoor championships, but by July 2002, when that year's national championships were held, Wilkinson had reclaimed her spot as America's best platform diver. Barring any more injuries, Wilkinson should be a strong contender to win another medal at the Athens Olympics in 2004.
