Four to upset the odds

Cathy Freeman (Aus)

200m and 400m

John Major's blueprint for transforming sport in Britain may have been based largely on Australian ideas, but over the past few years that country's output of outstanding track runners has been modest. Cathy Freeman is an exception, having won the 200m and 400m at the Commonwealth Games. Recently beat Olympic champion Marie- Jo Perec over 400m.

Ghada Shouaa (Syr)


The great German athlete Heike Drechsler should attract attention to this event, which is not usually a crowd-puller. Her main rival could be Shouaa, who comes from Syria and is at present leading the world rankings as well as being the Asian champion. The event promises to be a fascinating meeting between two of the world's finest all-round athletes from totally different backgrounds.

Stephane Diagana (Fr)

400m hurdles

Diagana, of France, suddenly showed that he was a world force in the 400m hurdles when he recently broke Harald Schmid's long-lasting European record with a time of 47.37sec, which was the sixth fastest time ever. In breaking the mark in Lausanne he also beat the American favourite, Derrick Adkins.

Wilson Kipketer (Den)


Kenyans are hardly going to be challenged in most of the long-distance events and even if a Dane should get a medal in the 800m he will be Kenyan born. Kipketer is fourth fastest of all time over the distance. A 24-year- old student, he represented Kenya at the 1990 world junior championships but won a scholarship to Copenhagen and settled.
