TWO world records on Day 1. Michael Phelps won his and the US' 1st gold, breaking his own world record by 0.15s in 400m IM, on his way to matching Mark Spitz's 1972 record of 7 golds. Ian Thorpe defended his 400m FS title. For only the second time since 1956, USA was beaten in the women's 4x100m FS relay. Australia romped home with the gold and a new world record (by 0.06s); denying Jenny Thompson her 9th gold. Yana Klochkova (UKR) becomes the first woman to win IM in consecutive Olympics. China sweeps both Sync Diving golds. AUG 15th :: The US disappoints again continuing a slow start to swimming (1 of 8 golds so far). South Africa wins their first gold in Olympic swimming history, thundering to a third WR in swimming by grabbing 400m FS relay simultaneously handing the US their worst showing ever in this event and ending Michael Phelps' quest for a record 8 golds. Last month, Hansen stole Kitajima's WR in 100m BrS but the gold was stolen from him by Kitajima tonight. Laure Manaoudou became the first French woman ever to win an Olympic swimming gold medal and France's second swimming gold ever. AUG 16th :: Thorpe avenges his loss to Hoogenband in the 200m FS in Sydney with a win here in the "Race of the Century". He now has 2 golds in these Games and his 5th career gold, the most by any Australian athlete in history. Phelps took the bronze - his quest to equal Mark Spitz's record is now over. Peirsol and Coughlin redeems America's stature in the pool by winning the 100m BS events. China takes women's 100m BrS gold - their 6th swimming gold ever. China finishes Sync Diving with 3 of 4 golds. Greece wins the other - the first gold for the hometown team - after China's men's pair leading by a large margin crashed to points on their final dive.

Extractions: May 2004 "Australia's women's waterpolo team was beaten 5-4 by world champion Hungary in a six-nation tournament. Australia was always on the back foot, down 2-1 down at the quarter, 3-2 at halftime and trailing 5-3 heading into the last seven minutes before closing the game with a 1-0 quarter. In a game where 2000 Olympic champion Bronwyn Smith played her 200th game for Australia, the result was not all bad news."
Extractions: June 9, 2001 HIGHLAND PARK, Ill. (AP) Stroke by powerful stroke, Kendra Berner slices through the water. She has spent thousands of hours in pools over the years, waking before dawn to train and coming back for more at night. The sacrifices have been great, but so have the rewards. Not many swimmers can say they were in Sydney, Australia, last fall, competing in the same pool where Ian Thorpe dazzled the world. But Berner's story is greater than just that of another successful athlete. Everything she's achieved has come despite a deformed right hand. The 20-year-old captain of the Davidson College swim team won four silver medals and set four U.S. records at the Paralympics last fall. On Monday she will be honored in Salt Lake City as the winner of the Honda Inspiration Award, given annually to a female college athlete who has overcome great physical adversity to contribute to her team's success. "I don't think of myself as different," Berner said. "I think I've always thought I can do whatever I want to do. And I'm going to, to prove to everyone that I can, and that I can do it just as well as everybody else." Berner's right hand has one long thick digit, as if her fingers and thumb molded together into a narrow point. But her parents, Linda and Greg Berner, decided early on that she would be treated like any other child.
