Donovan Bailey, the Olympic 100 metres champion, plans defend his title at the 2000 Sydney Olympics after all. The 29-year-old Canadian had previously said that he did not see himself taking part in another Olympic cycle, but his plans have changed. "There's still a lot left," he said. "I still pursue the dream of running a perfect race, or a race with the least amount of mistakes."
