Thursday October 26, 2000Samantha: It's white - when it's clean. I've had it for 10 years. Why did I buy it? My Dad told me to (much laughter).

Monday October 2, 2000When $5 million of horseflesh comes to an unscheduled halt in front of a fence over which it is meant to leap with gazelle-like grace, there is a problem. When it does the same thing twice more and throws away an Olympic gold medal in the process, it is nothing short of disastrous. Especial
Friday September 22, 2000Marie-Jose Perec left Atlanta four years ago in a selfsatisfied manner befitting Olympic royalty. She quit Sydney late on Wednesday night in a manner more in keeping with Lord Lucan. What happened in the intervening four years to cause such a fall from grace? Rewind to Atlanta and you find a 28y

Saturday February 3, 1996He's nuggety, powerful and an immensely talented athlete. He swims like a fish, runs like a gazelle and rides like the wind. A natural for triathlon, really. He's been on the fringes of the sport for a while, competing in two races this season to see how he would go. He finished fourth and a minu
