Carrying corks during run

There was a female British triathlete who carried what appeared to be short sticks or corks in her hands during the run section of a triathlon. I can't remember who she was. She may even have been a junior(I can't remember). She would have been competing around 2000 to 2005. Perhaps she still competes. I lost touch with the sport about this time.
Anyway, I'm trying to figure out who she was or even why she carried those. I'm assuming it was either to prevent/relieve arm tension in some way or to help with arm movement. Any advice would be great.
Great question! I'm sure the combined knowledge of our readers can work this out...
Anyone remember seeing this?
I distinctly remember seeing it yes, partly because I do the exact same. I run with two small light sticks (around 4-5" long).
I'm prety sure there was an article about here in 220 within the last year if anyone keeps back copies
Emma Snowshill, carried small sticks to prevent arm cross over.
sweet mercy, jon... how the devil did you remember that?!
any other memory feats you want to own up to?
I can never remember the important things in life though, Ris !!!
