JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY student Kamal Masud has been at the school's pool 4 1/2 hours a day since spring preparing for the 2000 Summer Olympic Games, and hardly anyone has noticed. The Pakistan Olympic swimming team has also been at the same facility for the same amount of time, and no one has paid attention to it, either. That's because Masud, 21, is the past and present Pakistan swimming team. Period. He was the country's first Olympic swimmer, in the 1996 Games in Atlanta, and currently the only one and will participate in the 100-meter butterfly in nearly three weeks in Sydney, Australia.
