ATLANTA -- The two scenes, played out nine days and some 90 miles apart, were remarkably similar: a young American female athlete nearly knocked out by an injury, only to shake off the pain and lead her team to a gold medal in the Olympics.Both gymnast Kerri Strug and soccer player Mia Hamm suffered sprained ankles, and both had to be helped to the medals ceremony by their teammates and coaches.But the image of Strug will be forever etched into the lore of the Centennial Olympics, while Hamm's moments of struggle and conquest are barely remembered days after they happened.

Chicago Cubs shortstop Nomar Garciaparra transformed himself from a self-described "skinny, 155-pound college baseball player" into a muscular, 190-pound Major League all-star. And he insists he did it the old-fashioned way: no steroids. Garciaparra says his secret weapon is conditioning guru Mark Verstegen. The two met in the early 1990s at Georgia Tech, where Verstegen, a former Division 1 college football player with a master's degree in sports sciences, was assistant director of player development, meaning the guy in charge of producing hard bodies.

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Given a choice, Briana Scurry would just as soon see the U.S. team put up five or six goals against China in the Women's World Cup championship game Saturday at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif.Like everyone else, Scurry, the team's goalkeeper, knows that the Americans' best chance against the powerful Chinese lies with Mia Hamm, Tiffeny Milbrett, Michelle Akers & Co. scoring as much as possible.But, like anyone else who has paid even a little attention to the world of women's soccer, Scurry knows the chances of the U.S. team racking up a big goal total at this stage of the World Cup aren't good.

GOOD SPORT MIA HAMM KICKED OFF THE MIA HAMM foundation in 1999. The foundation raises money to fight bone-marrow diseases. It also runs camps and clinics for young girls interested in soccer. What inspired you to start a foundation? My brother Garrett died from a bone marrow disease. He was an inspiration to me. I want to help other people who have Garrett's condition. I also want to be a role model for girls and help young female athletes. Sports can help girls grow into confident women.

Carey Fetting-Smith sat in soccer star Mia Hamm's old dorm room on the North Carolina campus early Monday evening and looked out the window, admiring the tranquil, tree-lined setting. The 2000 All-Metro field hockey Player of the Year from Bryn Mawr was enjoying life as a starting left back on this fall's Tar Heels field hockey squad (14-7). "I know why they say even the sky is Carolina blue down here," said Fetting-Smith, who scored two goals and had five assists in an impressive freshman year.

SEVERAL SOCCER wrinkles set apart a charity golf tournament that is to be played Monday at Turf Valley Resort and Conference Center. First, it is being run by the Washington Freedom, with a significant assist from a Columbia woman who is active in keeping that former pro women's soccer team - and dream - alive. More on her in a moment. This tournament is different, too, in that a few soccer celebrities will be in town, including the wife of Chicago Cubs shortstop Nomar Garciparra, better known in soccer circles as Mia Hamm, considered by many to be the greatest women's soccer player ever.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - The 2004 Summer Olympics are over, but Michael Phelps has just begun. The post-Olympic marketing push to keep the Baltimore swimmer from disappearing into the fall football frenzy began yesterday with "Disney's Swim with the Stars," a 12-city promotional water tour across America. With a record-tying eight Olympic medals - including six gold - Phelps left Athens on Sunday night and flew directly to Orlando, Fla., knowing his time in the spotlight - and his ability to capitalize - might not last very long.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Sorry, no refunds. There was nothing in the Women's World Cup ticket policies guaranteeing that Mia Hamm would play yesterday, just because she had participated in each of 20 previous U.S. games covering four World Cups dating to 1991. There was no rule preventing U.S. coach April Heinrichs - carefully balancing her need for maximum player skills with adequate rest in the three-week tournament - from holding back her most accomplished star at a time when she can get away with doing so. The Americans, in control throughout the match, shut out North Korea, 3-0, yesterday to conclude first-round group play with a 3-0 record.

PHILADELPHIA - Need extra tickets to the Women's World Cup? Shannon Boxx won't be using hers because something more important has come up: She's playing in the games. After one game, in fact, she's become something of a star, scoring the insurance goal in the Americans' 3-1 victory over Sweden in Sunday's opener. For tonight's second match against Nigeria at Lincoln Financial Field, Boxx again will be starting alongside some of soccer's biggest names - Mia Hamm, Kristine Lilly, Julie Foudy, Joy Fawcett - on the sport's biggest stage.

WASHINGTON - Mia Hamm looks forward to the day when there are no fledgling leagues to promote, no World Cups to win. After she retires - a notion that prompts Hamm to break off a Mona Lisa smile - she has no plans, or at least none she'll share. "I'm doing nothing for six months," she said. Likewise, Hamm looks forward to the day when she can take a run for the simple pleasure of running. No more drills. No more wind sprints. No more chasing people around the soccer pitch, getting kicked in the shins, grabbed.
