Cesana, Italy-- --Sometimes we have to look in the unexpected places. Olympic Spirit isn't tangible, doesn't have its own URL or Wikipedia entry. But it exists, and you want to see it. You flip off the television because you're pretty sure the sparkle on Katie Couric's front tooth isn't the Spirit's glimmer. Then you venture outside because that's what the Winter Games are all about. If you're not cold, you aren't doing this thing right. The Spirit is tricky. The organizers of the Games think that if they've bestowed the five-ring brand on something, it inherently has Spirit emanating off it like steam from a boiling pot of water.

JEFFERSONVILLE, Vt. - The time at the tone, 1776. Temperature, 17. That's the way it is at the Primitive Biathlon, where men wear dead animals on their heads and the unofficial motto is: "Things Ain't What They Used To Be." Out here, just miles from the upper-crust Stowe ski resort, with its massive SUVs and people in the latest Gore-Tex garb, are 170 people lost in time. "You look like you just crossed the Delaware," shouts one spectator to biathlete David Lawrence, who, in his tri-corner hat and waistcoat, looks like he shared an oar with the father of our country.

LES SAISIES, France -- On a postcard-perfect winter's day, with snowflakes the size of golf balls falling from the lumpy gray sky, with five giant plastic rings spread across an open field, with a flame burning brightly on the top of a hill, 5,000 fans scattered along snowbanks and watched history unfold at the Winter Olympics.They were there to see women with guns.For the first time in the history of the Olympics, women were exercising their right to bear arms in the biathlon, a military-style event that combines cross country skiing with target shooting.

BIATHLON OLE EINAR BJOERNDALEN TV: USA; 7 a.m.-9 a.m. Norwegian biathlete Ole Einar Bjoerndalen could make history more than once in Turin - by becoming the Winter Olympian with the most gold medals in history and by becoming the first athlete to win a gold medal in both biathlon and cross-country skiing. According to The Complete Book of the Winter Olympics, Bjoerndalen, 32, credits his success to a mental coach named Oynvid Hammer, who also is a vacuum cleaner salesman. They began working together in 1997 after Bjoerndalen bought a $3,500 vacuum cleaner.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Rachel Steer shoots as well as she skis, which is good news for the U.S. Olympic team and bad news for the caribou. The biathlete and avid sportswoman from Alaska is trying to make the squad that will travel to Turin, Italy, in February for the Winter Games. It would be a great finish to a career that includes a strong showing on the World Cup circuit and participation in the 2002 Olympics. The leaders of her sport and the U.S. Olympic movement are promoting her as possible medal material.
