Resin-3.0.6 (built Tue, 20 Jan 2004 09:46:57 PST) Luge crowns new king Three-time champ Hackl settles for silver as Italian prevails By BRAD TOWNSEND / The Dallas Morning News He applauded. Luge notebook Results The day and the occasion warranted it. Hackl, Germany's king of luge, was dethroned by 27-year-old Italian Armin Zoeggeler on a sunny Monday afternoon before 14,000 boisterous, cowbell-ringing fans at Olympic Park. "This second place is where I belong," Hackl said. "Armin is the right Olympic champion." The result was irrefutable. Zoeggeler, the three-time World Cup champion, defeated Hackl by a comfortable .329. Zoeggeler achieved the first- or second-fastest times in all four runs. Hackl, 35, the Olympic champion of 1992, 1994 and 1998, entered Monday's final two runs trailing Zoeggeler by a mere .041. But Hackl came up short in his bid to become the first person to earn gold in four Winter Olympics. This loss occurred 10 years and one day after Hackl's Olympic reign began, at Albertville, France.

Extractions: It's not boring; it's a magnificent feat of fitness and endurance Cross-country aficionados bummed over sparse coverage will get their fill of snowy swooshing this year. NBC has staked out over 30 camera positions along busy Soldier Hollow's trails and plans to televise more of the races than ever before. (The relatively action-packed relays air on NBC February 17 and 21.) But the skiing isn't exactly hair-raising, what with its lack of leaping, speeding, and spinning. The sport's want of "wow factor" is offset by its focus on fitness and endurance, says Paul Robbins, a spokesman for the U.S. ski team. Per Elofsson of Sweden, the defending World Cup champ, trains by running through swamps and roller skiing up mountains. Russia, Norway, Finland, and Italy are, with Sweden, on track to repeat past victories. The U.S. team is the strongest since 1984, Robbins says, but the Arctic countries live for this stuff. -Samantha Levine NORDIC COMBINED

Extractions: HISTORY OF WINTER OLYMPIC GAMES MODERN REVIVAL OF OLYMPIC GAMES Baron de Coubertin, a Frenchman, inspired the Olympic revival. Owing to his great effort the International Olympic Committee was set up on June 23, 1894. To the present day the Committee is the highest governing body of the Olympic Movement. The first international competitions similar to ancient Greek Olympiads were held in the city of Athenes in 1896. They were held in 9 separate sportstrack and field, gymnastics, swimming, weight lifting, wrestling, shooting, fencing, cycling race and tennis. From that time on Olympic Games became a major international event in sports. They were held in many cities of the world, including Moscow /1980/.The Olympic cycle of four years was interrupted only three times: in 1916 because of the First World War and in 1940 and 1944 because of the Second World War.

For those unacquainted with the sport, lugers hurtle downhill, feet first, on a very small sled lying flat on their backs. And just what does the Chief of Control do? On Wakefield's shoulders lies the responsibility of ensuring the fairness of competition with regard to luge athletes' equipment (including race clothing) and total weight. Since luge is a "sliding sport," the advantage goes to heavier athletes, so the rules allow lighter men and women to carry extra weight. Wakefield and her assistants must check the pre-competition weight of each racer, determine the amount of additional weight each can carry, and then conduct random weigh-ins and equipment checks after each luge run. And, yes, disqualifications occur. Wakefield remembers well a Russian woman whose suspiciously many necklaces had put her over the allowed weight. Wakefield, an inter-national luge judge since 1989, turned to history after practicing law for 10 years. She tested the waters with a Master of Art in History from SUNY Brockport and completed a PhD at SUNY Buffalo, with her dissertation evolving into Playing To Win: Sports and the American Military (SUNY Press, 1997). Wakefield's luge avocation dovetails nicely with her current research on the end of the Cold War as seen by elite-level athletes and sports administrators in former Communist bloc countries. Traditionally dominated by Eastern European nations such as East Germany and the former Soviet Union, luge offers a test case for Wakefield's questionsand the Winter Olympics gives her a chance to conduct interviews with athletes and officials long familiar with the power politics of international sport.
