Return to Women's History Theme Who is this woman? The tension was high. The other competitors and the Olympic audience were quiet as the tiny gymnast prepared for her final vault. Everyone knew that the 16-year-old was coming off of a serious knee injury and was trailing the favored Ekaterina Szabo by .05 points. Only a perfect 10 on the vault would give the gold medal. Her years of training and dreaming came down to this one final routine. began her trip down the runway and nailed her vault, earning a perfect 10 and becoming the first American woman to win an individual medal in Olympic gymnastics.
Mary was born on January 24, 1968, in Fairmont, West Virginia. She began studying dance and acrobatics at the age of four and started gymnastics training at five. When she was 15 she moved to Houston, Texas, to study with Bela Karolyi. Karolyi helped her develop a style that focused on her speed, accuracy, and power. She was chosen for the American gymnastics team in the 1984 Summer Olympics.
Six weeks before the Olympics began in Los Angeles she had to have surgery on one of her knees. The doctors told her she would not be able to compete in the Olympics. would not allow her dream to die and told the doctors, "I've made it this far. No one's going to keep me from trying."

A history of Handball
Early History Handball is one of the worlds oldest sports. The sport was in a variety of guises until its present form today. A ball game was described by Home in 'The Odyssey" in the following way: "And Alcinous commanded the courageous Halius to dance alone with Laodamus, since no one ventured to dance with them. They immediately took hold of the beautiful ball which Polybus had skillfully made out of of purple wool. One of them bending right back, hurled the ball high up into the shadowy clouds; then the other leapt high from the ground and deftly caught it before his feet touched the ground again. And after trying to throw the ball upwards, they danced floatingly to and fro on the bountiful earth, frequently moving from one position to another." A relief on a gravestone dated to be 600BC was found at the city wall of Athens, depicting the above event. According to the writings of the Roman doctor, Claudius Galenus (130-200AD), the Romans had a handball game called 'Harpaston". In the Middle Ages, maids of honour and knights were keen ball game players. The rules of the game were to pass the ball, which was often adorned with ribbons and bells, from one place to another. The minnesingers called the Summer ball the first game. This was sung by Walther von der Vogelwide (1170-1230), who called them "Cath Ball Games", forerunner to the present day game of handball.

Alfred won his gold medals in Individual Parallel Bars, Team Parallel Bars, and Team Horizontal Bars. He took the silver medal in the Horizontal Bars event. (Factually, Flatow finished first in three events and second in one event.)

He was prominently active in German gymnastics until expelled by the Nazis in l933. Alfred died in the Theresienstadt concentration camp in l942. On February 21, 1997, Reichssportsfeld Strasse (Street of the National Sports Complex) in the Charlottenburg district of Berlin was renamed "Flatowallee" (Flatow Boulevard), despite a contentious three-year battle by area residents to prevent the name change. One year earlier, the German Postal Service issued a 200 mark stamp commemorating the Olympic Centennial featuring the Flatow cousins. GUSTAV FELIX FLATOW. Germany. Born: 1/7/l875, Berent, Pomerania.

Posted on Tue, Mar. 26, 2002 Tesh bitter about Costas comments
NEW YORK (AP) John Tesh seems like a mild-mannered musician - until you ask him what he thinks about NBC Sports commentator Bob Costas. "I think Bob Costas needs a spanking," the former newsman told The Associated Press in a recent interview. "I have nothing nasty to say about most people, but just the unbridled drubbing that he drummed up for me, it was just unnecessary. ... I'm not a big fan." Tesh, 49, is still bitter about comments he said Costas made about his much-panned stint as a gymnastics commentator during the 1996 Summer Olympics on NBC. "On 'The Tonight Show,' he said, 'As an Olympic commentator, John Tesh is a great piano player," Tesh recalled. "He was a teammate. It would be like the catcher on the baseball team talking about what a jerk the pitcher was. It's just an unwritten rule that you don't do that." Tesh said he got an apology from Costas, but he apparently didn't think much of it. When asked whether he watched Costas during the recent Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Tesh said: "I turn the sound down when he's on. ... I think he's a fine broadcaster, but he's a brat." email this print this

"It's a wonderful feeling"
Promoter, Frank Warren "I'm so pleased for him" real Sunday, 1 October, 2000, 08:53 GMT 09:53 UK Brave Audley makes history Audley Harrison (right) showed courage and skill Audley Harrison ignored a serious hand injury to defeat Kazakhstan's Mukhtarkhan Dildabekov and take Britain's first Olympic boxing gold since 1968. Harrison took charge of the contest in the opening round and increased his advantage in every subesquent round, winning by a 30-16 point decision. But despite the convincing nature of his performance, it was revealed shortly before the bout that the 28-year-old Englishman was suffering from an injured knuckle in his left hand. But he was able to dominate the battle using his right jab and through a debilitating body attack which took its effect on the Kazakhstan fighter during the final round. Harrison started slowly and actually found himself two points down after the first minute of the contest.
