Extractions: As the story goes, a young French officer in Napoleon's army was sent on an unfamiliar horse to deliver a message into hostile territory. He was first greeted by an enemy soldier with his sword drawn. The two dueled. The French officer won the duel and continued on his horse until it was shot out from under him. He fired a shot with his pistol and killed the enemy but his horse didn't make it. He swam across a river and ran the rest of the way to deliver his message. When he arrived, his commanding officer greeted him with, "What took you?" The modern pentathlon used to be drawn out over anywhere from four to six days. Beginning with the Atlanta games in
Extractions: Until now the Olympic preserve of men, pentathlon opens to women in Sydney, and on an equal basis; there will be 16 men and 16 women taking part in the one-day event involving the five sports of shooting, fencing, swimming, riding and running. A form of pentathlon was staged at the ancient Games in 708 BC. It included throwing the discus and javelin, jumping, running and wrestling. From such classical and honourable beginnings, pentathlon fell into shame in 1968 when it became the first sport at a Games to produce a positive drugs test. Hans-Gunnar Liljenvall, of Sweden, was found to be over the blood-alcohol limit. He claimed he had had a few beers before the shooting to calm his nerves, but that was the very reason why he should not have been having the beers; steadying the nerves before a shooting event is deemed to be cheating since it can enhance performance unnaturally.

In that poignant moment in the pool, America's greatest and most beloved woman swimmer let go of any lingering animosity she harbored toward fellow American Brooke Bennett, 15. She also let go of a lifetime's work and symbolically passed the torch to Bennett, the new 800-meter freestyle gold medalist.

Extractions: MODERN PENTATHLON REPORT Back to NEWS Sunday, October 1 Cook finds recipe for success From David Powell in Sydney There is no set menu for the breakfast of champions. When Steph Cook joined Audley Harrison for the first meal of the day at 5.15 here this morning, she had muesli and bananas, he had a fry-up. But their evening drink was the same. Champagne. Three years after interrupting her career as a doctor to train full-time for a sport at which she was still a novice, Cook succeeded where Britains men had failed since modern pentathlon was admitted into the Olympics in 1912. The first Briton to win an individual gold medal, Cook also goes down as the inaugural womens Olympic champion. Nobody aware of Cooks strengths was surprised that she came through from eighth place after four events to win on the final discipline, the run. A former England cross country international, she said beforehand that she had a bit of a reputation as a runner. She has even more of one now. Since Jim Fox led Britain to team gold in the 1976 Olympics in Montreal, modern pentathlon has existed on the fringes of British sport. Those within it, though, have become increasingly aware of Cooks strengths as a runner and now the whole world knows about it. At the world championships in Pesaro, Italy, in June, Cook pulled up from 25th to ninth on the run. In July, at the European championships in Székesfehévár, Hungary, she raced through from fourteenth place to take the silver. In Mexico City in March, she achieved her first World Cup victory after setting of on the 3,000 metres in fourth place.
