ALBERTVILLE, France -- The U.S. women's 3,000-meter relay team in short track skating produced a wholly unexpected medal in the Albertville Olympics yesterday, the silver, and missed the gold that Canada won in a world record time of 4 minutes, 36.62 seconds by 1.23 seconds.It was the eighth medal won by the American team at these Games, matching the total of eight years ago in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia. At the 1988 Calgary Games, the United States won just six medals.For a sport in which teamwork is critical and mistakes potentially dangerous, the U.S. effort might easily have been forgettable, or even disastrous.

Charles Irwin has seen some Broadway magic over the years, but he had never seen the strange magic he saw this past Tuesday.In the finals of the high jump competition for men age 70 to 74 at the U.S. National Senior Sports Classic that morning, Irwin was entrenched in a battle for the gold medal.

He clipped the bar as he went over and what happened next seemed like a little miracle from one of the Broadway musicals Irwin performed in 40 years ago.Before Morningstar landed on the mat, the bar jumped up in the air, turned on its side and dropped perfectly back into place.

BEIJING - Shawn Johnson had dark circles under her brown eyes and a headache, but when she jumped on the balance beam last night, she switched on her smile and defiantly pounded out a gold-medal routine. It wasn't the gold Johnson wanted. She had come here as the favorite to win the all-around title, had hoped to lead the U.S. team to a gold medal, had hoped to defend her world championship in the floor exercise and add to that a balance-beam gold medal. But through a succession of silvers - team, all-around, floor - Johnson, 16, of West Des Moines, Iowa, stuck out her chin, wiped away tears and insisted that silver was just as nice as gold.
