The first modern Olympic swimming contests were held outdoor in open water. The weather had turned unusually cold at the Bay of Zea at Phaleron, near Piraeus, and on the morning of the competition the temperature in the water had dropped to 55 degrees Fahrenheit (13 degrees Centigrade). Unlike early competitions, which were held in lakes, rivers and the open sea, all events are now held in Olympic-size pools, where the water temperature is kept between 78 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

Bios Anywhere you go within the Bicycle Freestyle scene, the name Mat Hoffman is bound to come up. In fact, Mat's reputation stretches beyond the bicycle stunt world and into the mainstream. He is, without question, the greatest vert-ramp rider in the history of the sport - a fact that is uncontested among his peers.
Mat's enthusiasm for the sport is a direct reflection of his enthusiasm for life. "If you want to experience all of the successes and pleasure in life, you have to be willing to accept all the pain and failure that comes with it," he said. " I don't want to hold myself back from anything life has to offer. I want to experience all life has to offer."
Mat entered the Bicycle Freestyle circuit as an amateur at the young age of thirteen. After quickly rising to the top of the amateur class within three years, Mat leapt to the pro ranks. At age 16, he was the youngest pro the sport had ever seen. An article in Ride magazine wrote, “What’s left to say about a guy who ignored all established limits and redefined vert riding - at age fifteen?”
Mat's unparalleled accomplishments as a rider are equaled by his success in the business world. By 1991, Mat had already surpassed amateur rank, seized the pro division, and brought the sport to new heights never thought possible, inventing the majority of the vert tricks today. Frustrated at having someone else in the driver’s seat of his career, Mat left his primary sponsor and began his own promotion company: Hoffman Promotions. He assembled a team of the best Freestyle bike riders, most of whom still ride for Hoffman Bikes, and began organizing show tours as the Sprocket Jockey Bicycle Stunt Team. The Sprocket Jockeys tour the country to this day, and are considered to be the best Bicycle Freestyle road show in the business.

What's an "Essay Bio"?
A personal story of your life/dreams/memories. How you got to be "you." Maybe two pages (can be less, or a bit more), in narrative/prose style, usually chronological. Much more intimate/detailed than a résumé. A sharing of self, to enable a group of Leadership Learning Output Forum participants to get to know you as an individual, more quickly, and in ways which facilitate the LLF process. Another signal that each LLF is a different, likely a unique experience and gift. Be ready for that difference. Capitalize on it. An example of how rich, deep and "broadly lived" the people are, with whom we work/attend meetings etc., but often don't really know well enough. Such insight helps teamwork, helps productivity, helps relationship building. The facilitators' Essay Bios are a good role model (in handouts).

Media Relations

- Anticipate the questions and formulate positive answers. - Identify the amateur or high school sports beat writers, columnists who mention diving or water sports and active TV reporters. Get their names and work hours, add them to your media list and contact them directly. - Free is good. Look for sections of the paper where you can list your upcoming events or clinics and submit photos for free. - There is such a thing as too much information. Give them only enough to make the sale. You can expand upon the info when the media shows up. - Timing is everything. Call three weeks in advance for TV, two weeks in advance for print and then follow up the week heading into the event. - Be realistic. Reporters must prioritize, and national events often come before local ones. Early-morning programs (wake-up shows) are excellent targets and will often do live remotes at a practice or meet. - Plan and prioritize your media relations campaign for the year and event by event. Make a calendar to remind you of key dates and keep important contacts in a readily accessible database.

by : BJ Worth
FAI's Skydiving Events are the Highlight of the World Games 2001 Eighteen months ago, the IPC adopted the following new Mission Statement: "The IPC's goal is to develop its sporting disciplines into events which are attractive to the athletes, to the event organizers, to the public, to the media, and to sponsors - thereby increasing participation at IPC events, increasing public viewing of IPC events, and increasing income within the sport." During the parachuting events of the 6th World Games in Akita, Japan - August 16-20, 2001 - many of these goals were accomplished in one fell swoop. The World Games are the quadrennial sports event conducted by the International World Games Association. The competitors are athletes from 30 international sports federations whose disciplines have been recognized as "Olympic Sports" by the IOC (International Olympic Committee), but are not (yet) part of the official program of the Olympic Games. Every four years, the World Games are held to give an opportunity for 4000 of the top IWGA athletes to compete in a multi-sports environment on a global stage. In October 2000, the IOC signed an agreement with IWGA whereby the World Games are now conducted "Under the patronage of the International Olympic Committee." As part of this relationship, it is presumably the IOC's intention that new sports will enter the Olympic Program only via the IWGA. The IWGA will essentially serve as a farm team for the IOC. IWGA sports which are most attractive to the IOC will have the opportunity to move into the Olympics, and the less attractive sports currently in the Olympics will risk being moved to the World Games.

15. Todd Christensen
of the more engaging and complex personalities ever to his scope as no other athlete,ranging from host American Gladiators , the syndicated, trash sport hit
During his playing days with the Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders, Todd Christens was referred to as "The Renaissance Man1’. His ability for quoting everyone from Kant to Shakespeare while elucidating the throngs of fans regarding the intricacies of the game and its metaphors to life, made him one of the more engaging and complex personalities ever to grace professional sports. Too often, his intellectual persona has overshadowed what was a Hall of Fame career. He was a five (5) time All-Pro Tight End (1983-1987) who caught 349 passes between 1983-1986 a NFL record at the time. Twice he led the NFL in receptions (1983 with 92 and 1986 with 95) along with Hail of Famer Kellen Winslow, the only tight end in NFL history to have done that -also the only tight end in history to have caught 90 passes twice. Todd played on two (2) Superbowl champion teams - the 1980 Oakland Raiders and the 1983 Los Angeles Raiders. It is a testament to his perseverance and work ethic that he had a career in professional football, let alone an eleven (11) year span worthy of the Canton, Ohio shrine. But it was in football where he proved that he was arguably the brightest and most articulate ex-athlete in recent memory. His Denver - Houston 1992 Divisional Playoff game was nominated for an EMMY Award. He broadcast the greatest comeback in NFL history, Buffalo Houston 1993. The next year he was the analyst on the second collegiate "Game of the Century" between Florida State and Notre Dame again, acknowledged by "USA Today" as "College Broadcast of the Year".

Roy Williams
Roy Williams, one of the most highly respected and active leaders in college basketball today, is in his 14th season as head coach at the University of Kansas. With a career record of 355-89, Williams' teams won more games in the first 13 seasons of a coaching career than anyone in NCAA history. His career winning percentage (.800) is the third-highest among all active Division I coaches with at least six years experience, and he has led the Jayhawks to 12-straight 20 win seasons. In addition, Williams recently moved into second place on Kansas' all-time coaching wins list. When KU beat Colorado 91-79 on Feb. 21, 2001 in Allen Fieldhouse, it marked win No. 349 for Williams, moving him past Ted Owens for second place on that ledger. He now trails only legendary former KU coach Phog Allen for first place. Williams' teams have won seven conference championships over the last 11 years. In five years of Big 12 Conference play, his teams have gone 64-16 against conference foes, capturing the league title in 1997 and 1998 and the postseason tournament crown in 1997, 1998 and 1999. From 1995-98, Kansas was a combined 123-17 ; an average of 30.8 wins per season. Williams has led KU to 12-consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances including the Final Four in 1991 and 1993.
