"It's a joke. It's an absolute joke this event," stated Roland, who luckily averted disqualification at the second semi-finals for the men's 50m freestyle as he and England's Simon Burnett had a false start when they heard a noise in the stand.
Blaming the Indian spectators, Roland asserted, "It's unacceptable to be at a professional event like this and have people going on like monkeys. Someone like that doesn't deserve to be here."
Expressing disgrace on the hole incident, he also stated, "I'm experienced enough not to make a stupid blunder like that."
