Emily Biondi will not be slowed down. Certainly not by near-fatal kidney failure. Four years after Biondi received her father's donated kidney in a life-saving transplant, she returned to Ellicott City last week from the World Transplant Games - a celebration of transplant survivors from around the globe - held in Bangkok, Thailand. Biondi, a 2001 Mount Hebron graduate, took part in the National Transplant Games in Louisville, Ky., last year and won four track-and-field medals despite receiving no previous training.

BARCELONA, Spain -- Tears ran down Janet Evans' cheeks. Her voice cracked every time she spoke. Any moment, she seemed ready to break down.A resigned smile crossed Matt Biondi's face. He stretched his legs. Pondered his retirement. Joked that his dog would still lick him when he got home.This is a tale of two U.S. swimmers, two who combined for eight Olympic gold medals in 1988, each a giant in the sport, each a shocked loser last night.Evans fell in the women's 400-meter freestyle for the first time since the 1986 Goodwill Games; Biondi in the men's 100-meter freestyle for the first time since the '84 Olympic trials.

A week before Christmas in 2003, Norman Biondi gave his daughter Emily the greatest gift possible: a new lease on life. He donated a kidney to his ailing daughter, who not only has regained her health but these days is making a name for herself as a competitive athlete. This week, Emily Biondi, 24, is scheduled to travel to Bangkok, Thailand, with her father to participate with Team USA in track and field events at the World Transplant Games. Last year, the Ellicott City native won four medals at the National Transplant Games in Louisville, Ky., but says the world games are "a much bigger deal."

Emily Biondi, a junior at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, never intended to work toward a degree in health administration and public policy. It's just that her young life took a detour at the close of her sophomore year in 2003 at Florida Southern College, where she was studying dance and music. At 19, she was experiencing total kidney failure. Biondi had been feeling ill but thought she had just contracted a bad strain of influenza. Biondi says she has since learned that with kidney failure, you might notice you're in serious trouble only when you have 10 percent of function left in one kidney - and by that time, it's often too late to salvage what remains.

During final exams in college, Deepak Jain rushed through a test so he could tend to business from the pay phone in the hall. At graduation, he crouched behind a chair to talk to a client from his cell phone. Now, he can sit comfortably behind a long, wooden table in a conference room that overlooks Interstate 95. His Internet technology company, AiNET, has grown to fill 22 offices around the world, including two in Howard County. And Jain is projecting his Maryland offices will generate more than $10 million in revenue this year.
