ALBERTVILLE, France -- The U.S. women are expected to win two medals in the Olympic figure-skating competition, but they will have to do it without any help from the American on the nine-judge panel.There isn't one.Based on past performances, 10 countries were placed in a pool, and nine judges were selected. By the luck of the draw -- or lack of luck -- U.S. judge Margaret Wier of Park City, Utah, was eliminated.Wier said she did not know about her exclusion until she read it in a newspaper.

For 45 years, on sunny summer days, Twilah Wier and Dorothy Avery have occupied the same spot on a rock overlooking Beaver Dam."You know what they call us?" Mrs. Wier asks. "The daily double."Mrs. Wier, actually, has been coming to Beaver Dam Swim Club for 52 years. It is where she taught her two sons to swim and where she has watched generations of children grow up and bring their own offspring. "I watched the kids grow up. They turn into lifeguards and then they come back as fathers," she says.
