WASHINGTON - When Sergei Gonchar was a little boy growing up in Chelyabinsk, Russia, the NHL All-Star Game was not something he dreamed about. The hockey players he admired achieved other goals. They made their national team. They made their country's Olympic team. And so it was of those things that Gonchar dreamed. But tomorrow, it is Gonchar who will be representing the Washington Capitals in the 51st annual NHL All-Star Game in Denver. "For any player to go to this game, it is a big deal," said Gonchar, his boyish face a little flushed.

A weekend trip to New York to play with the brightest stars in minor league baseball is likely a welcome change of pace for Orioles minor leaguer Eduardo Rodriguez, who will play for the World team in Sunday's All-Star Futures Game. But it's the routine he'll be taking a break from that has helped elevate Rodriguez from a skinny mixture of promise and arm speed to the organization's top pitching prospect not named Bundy or Gausman. Ryan Minor, who managed Rodriguez at High-A Frederick before his promotion last month to Double-A Bowie, said one of the biggest improvements he saw in the 21-year-old left-hander was his preparation between starts.

Young Caitlyn McFadden regularly sat quietly and obediently in class, one elementary school teacher observed. Just once, though, she wanted to see her student, a future Maryland lacrosse star, let loose. “I remember something her fourth-grade teacher said to me once,” said McFadden's mother, Mary Clare “M.C.” McFadden. “'I wish she would just get up and run down the hall screaming!'” But that sort of behavior never has been in McFadden's character. As the midfielder makes her second Federation of International Lacrosse World Cup appearance with Team USA when it opens play Thursday against England in Oshawa, Ontario, McFadden's coaches from her decorated career say subtlety is her most notable trait.

NEW ORLEANS -- Since making the 1992 U.S. Olympic team as a relatively unknown 14-year-old, Kerri Strug has been a nomad. In a sport where changing coaches and routines is de rigueur, Strug has exceeded the norm.Strug's gymnastic journey began when Bela Karolyi, who had coached her for nearly three years, retired after Barcelona. It continued with stops in four different gyms, including one for just two weeks.Mostly, these types of moves are made by gymnasts not considered among the most promising in the world, as Strug has been.
