Olympic Roundup

In Beijing, "one world" but dreams for many - mentions the ups and downs of Kenenisa Bekele since Athens.

Haile’s successor - Praise for Kenenisa from the publishers of THE HINDU.

Athlete managers warned to keep distance - Jos Hermens says "They (EAF) sent me an email saying 'we have always had good cooperation and thanks for everything you do for the Ethiopian athletes but lately there has been tension within the team.' It was a request to keep a low profile."

'Rome 1960': An Olympic Turning Point - Best-selling author David Maraniss makes a case in his latest book's title: Rome 1960: The Olympics that Changed the World. Some interesting stuff in Chapter 2.. "It had been twenty-five years since the Fascist legions of Benito Mussolini had invaded Ethiopia, devastating the civilian population with bombing raids and poison gas. In 1936 Il Duce's troops occupied a mountain village in Debre Birhan, forcing out Wudinesh Beneberu and her family, including her four-year-old son, Abebe Bikila. "

Instant Olympic classics - one of my favorite Olympics moments..Ethiopia's Derartu Tulu became the first black African woman to earn an Olympic medal.

Pavey spurred on by Osaka pain and desire to emulate Holmes - The British 10,000m athlete Jo Pavey is determined to put her world championships disappointment behind her by overcoming the dominant Ethiopians to win her first Olympic medal.


China Seeks to Top Medal Count at 2008 Olympics
During the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, the Chinese team won only one gold medal from the 119 available in what it considers to be basic events: swimming, track and field, and water events such as canoe and sailing. China's State General Sports Bureau then instituted its so-called "Project 119" with the aim of significantly increasing top finishes in those events. I smell cheating.
