More rest will help former world champion Cate Campbell overcome a wrist complaint that has flared at the Rio Olympic swimming trials in Adelaide.
Unfortunately, that is also what caused it.
Sport has no shortage of freak injuries.
Still, Campbell's entry stands out after joining the long list by, well, not doing anything.
Campbell damaged her wrist lying on it awkwardly while sleeping - not once but twice.
"I am an aggressive napper," Campbell laughed.
It doesn't seem to be slowing her down.
She qualified fastest for Tuesday night's 100m freestyle final, clocking 52.41 - her fastest time since she claimed the 2013 world title.
The time would have won London Olympic gold and pipped her younger sister Bronte for victory at the 2015 world titles in Russia.
Other members of her unlucky club have not been so lucky.
Sportspeople have no doubt found new ways to come off second best since the 1923 reported case of American baseballer Clarence Blethen, who lacerated his leg with his false teeth stashed in his back pocket as he slid into base.
But modern times have thrown up the most unlikely, and it seems hilarious, scenarios - unless you are the poor unfortunate involved.
In American football, touchdown celebrations have resulted in season-ending knee injuries like Arizona's Bill Gramatica in 2001.
In baseball, just sitting on your couch can be hazardous - Joel Zumaya missed part of Detroit's run to the 2006 World Series due to a wrist injury sustained playing Guitar Hero.
Then there was 1990s American baseballer Tom Glavine who broke two ribs throwing up airline food.
Even the greats can appear human - Michael Jordan missed an NBA game when he came off second best with a cigar cutter.
And then of course there are the Aussies.
NSW bowler Trent Copeland suffered an ankle injury carrying drinks to teammates.
Geelong's dual-premiership winner Brad Ottens infamously impaled himself on a garden stake slipping while putting up a backyard hammock.
Somehow Central Coast defender Storm Roux broke his leg, damaged his ankle and dislocated his shoulder when he spun quickly to try and block a shot on goal in the A-League.
In rugby league, Tim Brasher missed the 2001 season when he fell trying to clean a ceiling fan.
And who can forget what happened next when NSW coach Wayne Pearce said: "Let's bond while horse riding".
Certainly not forward Robbie Kearns (broken collarbone).
Sadly - and at times hilariously - the list goes on and on.
Yet after becoming the latest entry Campbell wasn't getting any sympathy from her sister, reigning world champion Bronte at the Adelaide pool.
"Even when she is not doing anything she is hurting herself," she laughed.
"I will pass on some sleeping tips to her."
She better do it soon.
Asked what the best treatment was, Cate Campbell said: "More rest should do it a lot of good".
