Winter Olympics: Yegorova's sixth gold

LJUBOV YEGOROVA claimed her place in the Olympic record books at Lillehammer yesterday when she secured the sixth gold medal of her career. The 27-year-old Russian cross- country skier equalled the tally of Lydia Skoblikova, a Soviet speed skater from the 1960s, as the most successful Winter Olympics gold medal winner of all time, when she steered the Russian women's team to victory in the 4 x 5km relay.

Winter Olympics / Lillehammer '94: Russian pair take back title

EKATERINA GORDEEVA and Sergei Grinkov, the 1988 gold medalists who like Torvill and Dean returned to Olympic competition from the professional ranks, won the gold medal in pairs figure skating last night with an elegant free skating program, beating their fellow Russian defending champions, Natalia Mishkutienok and Artur Dmitriev.

Review: It's downhill all the way from here

ON Saturday afternoon, the Olympic flame reached Lillehammer and was dunked into the tall ornamental bowl from which it will burn for the next fortnight, high above the Winter Games. Except it wasn't as simple as that.

Winter Olympics: Cross-Country

THE pressure could not be greater on the hosts. Two years ago in Albertville, Bjorn Daehlie and Vegard Ulvang won two cross-country skiiing golds each, and another with the relay team, and now the crowds thronging the Birkebeineren stadium (this is Norway's national sport) will be demanding a similiar return from them.

Winter Olympics: Biathlon

ONE of the toughest events in the Olympic schedule, combining the huge fitness and endurance demands of cross-country skiing with the rigid control of rapid-fire target shooting. A biathlete uses up to 80 per cent of his available energy (twice as much as a footballer).

Winter Olympics: Flame jumper's bad fall

THERE was a sharp reminder of the dangers of the sports that will be on show in Lillehammer for the next 16 days, when the athlete practising for the centrepiece of the Winter Olympics opening ceremony was badly injured and ended the day in intensive care in hospital.

Winter Olympics: Ski Jumping

IT IS not just the ice dance which will be bringing back memories of the 1984 Sarajevo Games at Lillehammer. Ten years since he won gold and silver medals on his Olympic debut, Jens Weissflog is able at last to step out of the shadows of the meteoric Finns, Matti Nykanen and Toni Nieminen.

Today's Number: 20,000

The copies of a Scandinavian Airlines magazine that have been pulped to ensure Norway's leading cross-country skiers, Vegard Ulvang and Bjoern Daehlie, can compete in the Lillehammer Olympics. The pair had appeared in adverts which could have jeopardised their amateur status.

Skiing: FIS denies blame on Maier

THE international ski federation, FIS, has rejected charges by the fiance of Ulrike Maier that its officials were to blame for the accident that killed the Austrian during a World Cup downhill on Saturday.

Today's Number: 486

The distance in feet covered by Austria's Werner Schuster in the international ski flying competition in Ironwood, Michigan. The sport is a long-distance version of ski jumping.

Skiing: High flier

Above the city streets flies Hein Arne Mathison, of Norway. But he was on a wing and a prayer - landing unplaced yesterday in the large hill event of the World Cup ski jumping in Sapporo, northern Japan. Best of the 56 birdmen was Jens Weissflog, of Germany.

In this photo illustration a school student eats a hamburger as part of his lunch which was brought from a fast food shop near his school, on October 5, 2005 in London, England. The British government has announced plans to remove junk food from school lunches. From September 2006, food that is high in fat, sugar or salt will be banned from meals and removed from vending machines in schools across England. The move comes in response to a campaign by celebrity TV chef Jamie Oliver to improve school meals.
