Like many Olympic athletes not named Michael Phelps , Suzanne Stettinius is both training and fundraising in these final weeks before the Summer Games. She's made appeals via Facebook and her blog and, next week, will host a party at a Baltimore County tavern where among the auction items will be a date with the athlete herself. A risky proposition for a 24-year-old woman? Maybe, but perhaps not one whose sport involves shooting and fencing and, should flight rather than fight seem advisable, running, swimming and riding a horse.

Another swing for softball Philip Hersh Chicago Tribune First of all, wrestling should not be replaced on the Summer Olympic program, in 2020 or ever. But if the International OlympicCommittee keeps its head buried firmly in the sand (or elsewhere), I am conflicted about a replacement because baseball and softball have made themselves a single entity in a bid for readmission. Softball belongs; baseball does not because the sport's top prize is not Olympic gold but the World Series, and getting its top players to compete during the major league season remains a problem.

She fenced. She swam. She took a horse she'd only just met over a 15-fence obstacle course. And then she shot and ran. But after a full Sunday competing in the modern pentathlon at the Summer Games here, Suzanne Stettinius of Parkton finished 28th out of 36 riders. The gold medalist was Laura Asadauskaite of Lithuania, who finished with 5,408 points, a modern pentathlon Olympic record. Silver went to Great Britain's Samantha Murray, whose performance set the temporary stands at Greenwich Park rocking with enthusiastic fans, and bronze was won by Brazil's Yane Marques.

Newtown Square, Pa. -- Mike Gostigian wasn't crazy about fencing, and never had shot a pistol. Distance running was only a last resort to stay in shape, and horseback riding was unthinkable. But he could swim fairly fast.So John du Pont thought Gostigian was a perfect fit for a modern pentathlete."This sport really has been a test of sanity, will and character the last 13 years," said Gostigian, 29, after another 12-hour training session at du Pont's Foxcatcher Farm in his Pennsylvania hometown.

The last amateurs finally appeared at the Olympics. Shooting, swimming, fencing, riding and running for medals. The competitors in the modern pentathlon slogged through a program yesterday that mirrors a Napoleonic soldier delivering a battlefield message. They finished with a ride and a run on a converted baseball diamond. An American, Chad Senior, was headed for the gold until the riding phase. Drawing a horse by lot, he selected a nag that balked three times, knocked down two jumps and sent him plummeting out of first and out of contention.
