On an icy track slowed by bureaucracy and weather, Germany's Felix Loch won the men's luge competition by being the overall best at the start. At 20, he is the youngest luge gold medalist. The two-time world champion derailed Italy's Armin Zoeggler from his quest for three consecutive gold medals in a competition largely decided by international federation officials, who lowered the starting line about 600 vertical feet to the women's take-off point after last Friday's fatal crash.

Mark Spitz says he's not bitter about losing swimming's most sacred record to Michael Phelps , who 15 months ago cemented a spot in Olympic history with eight gold medals, one more than Spitz won in 1972. "It's sort of like I'm the first man on the moon," Spitz said. "He's the second man on the moon. He collected more rocks." Phelps of Baltimore also is collecting scrutiny. "Of course, there's a lot of pressure," Spitz said. He said, "Michael is not a perfect person, and neither am I," a reference to Phelps' having been photographed last November inhaling from a marijuana pipe.

Laurel resident Susan Habig won gold in the doubles finals of shuffleboard in the 65-69 age category in July at the National Senior Games in Cleveland, Ohio. In individual shuffleboard, Habig came in sixth and her partner in doubles, Marcia Long, of Sweetwater, Tenn., came in seventh, but together they brought home gold medals in doubles. The two competitors had just formally met at the games. Once a year Habig qualifies for shuffleboard in Maryland, but she doesn't play the rest of the year because there are no courts to practice on nearby.

VANCOUVER - This was supposed to be for all the Canadian athletes who, at worst, faltered on over-pressurized home soil during the Olympics, or at best, overachieved, and came up just shy of gold. Not that an individual gold medal in Vancouver could erase something like the seismic failure of the men's 1988 Olympic hockey team in Calgary. But finally, and mercifully, it could put an end to the ever-present chatter and questions about the failure for Canada to win gold during an Olympics on its home soil.

Swimmers describe the race as a snarling beast that will rob them of the energy needed for other endeavors. The greatest of all time, Michael Phelps, says he'll never swim it again. Too painful. You'll hear no such talk, however, from Bel Air native Chase Kalisz. For the 20-year-old Kalisz, the 400-meter individual medley is "my baby. " Phelps will garner most of the attention Friday as he swims the 100-meter butterfly, his marquee race of the Phillips 66 National Championships.

HOUSTON -- Orioles catcher Matt Wieters isn't looking beyond Friday, when he is scheduled to throw for the first time in more than three weeks, but he's still encouraged by the progress with his right elbow. "It's gotten a lot better over the last few days, which is what we were waiting on," Wieters said Thursday. "Now it's just a matter of going through the throwing progression and hopefully everything keeps getting better. "Every movement that gets me back towards getting on the field is good.

Like many artists before her, Lisa Su has found inspiration from the intricate patterns and textures found in nature: the red seeds from the inside of a pomegranate, barnacles adhering to a rock. Yet the materials she uses are not beautiful or intricate. They are the stuff we throw away: old newspapers, egg shells, plastic bags, pencil shavings and light bulbs. Su's work, which ranges from the realistic bust of her friend to the abstract paper pulp sculpture that is reminiscent of barnacles, has earned her recognition as one of the top high school visual artists in the nation.

MESA, ARIZ. - Michael Phelps couldn't say it enough times, even joking that he would bore questioners with his repetitive explanation for returning to competitive swimming. “I'm having fun,” he answered over and over Wednesday in his first public remarks since his comeback became official last week. Phelps, 28, will swim at the Mesa Grand Prix Thursday, his first race since he won his record-setting 18th gold medal at the 2012 Olympics. He said then he'd never be back, that he'd be relieved to live away from the pool for the first time in his life.

NEW YORK -- The focus of Monday's Yankees home opener was on shortstop Derek Jeter , who played in his final Opening Day game at Yankee Stadium. The 39-year-old Jeter received a standing ovation in his first at bat and a rousing reception from the home crowd during pregame introductions. He also received praise from Showalter, who was Jeter's first big league manager when Jeter debuted with the Yankees in 1995. "He's somebody who baseball should be proud of," Showalter said.

Toward the end of a blistering set on a recent Friday night, Adam Marans, lead singer of the Baltimore sludgy punk foursome Big Christ, took a rare breather to dedicate the next song, “Boogie Nights,” to the deceased actor Philip Seymour Hoffman. A collective smile hit the room of roughly 25. And then came the boom, a glorious cacophony of Marans' full-throated yells, relentless cymbal crashing, staccato palm muting on guitar and the bass' punishing low end. The 25-minute performance was loud, brutal and a lot of fun. It was also just a regular Friday night at the Gold Bar, another smart and solid addition to an emerging Station North bar scene that already includes the Windup Space, Beatnik, Club K and next-door neighbor The Crown.

Nestled in an old Korean office building adjacent to a vacant lot resides Gold Bar, one of Baltimore's newer establishments. Gold Bar serves as a sister bar to highly regarded the Crown - right across the hall but with a measured difference in atmosphere (more rock-show oriented). Gold Bar offers its own eclectic mix of live music, craft cocktails, and ... Asian cuisine (sure, why not?). Dimly lit, sparsely decorated and DIY to the core, what better place to enjoy a whiskey-loaded fruit cocktail, right?

If prejudice masquerading as journalism were an Olympic sport, the vile diatribe of commentator Mark Nuckols against all things Russian would win gold hands down ( "The Sochi experiment," Feb. 6). The real problem, however, is that Mr. Nuckols' rant is just a small part of a much larger propaganda blast aimed at ginning up worse-than-Cold-War relations between Russia and the West, with potentially catastrophic strategic consequences for the planet. Give Mr. Nuckols credit for a certain perverse originality.
