A CITY LOVE WITH ITSELF

A golden fish, fashioned from 90 feet of shimmering metal, soars above the waterfront. On a busy street corner, giant yellow steel matches lie twisted and burned, a visual joke that brings relief to a nondescript urban landscape. And on the crest of a green hill, a pristine white tower slices 350 feet into the sultry air, concealing the humdrum workings of a telephone exchange in a smooth shell that calls to mind a futuristic propeller.

Moldova’s dirty war

Burned-out buses and menacing gunmen, rather than fortress walls, are now the reminders of war in Bendery, a manufacturing centre in eastern Moldova (formerly Moldavia). All but 30,000 of the city’s former 130,000 inhabitants have fled for safety, and smashed buildings and fresh graves are legacies of another bloody ethnic conflict on the edge of the collapsed Soviet empire.

THE PERILS OF DOPING

Surrounded by the angular black steel and shining chrome frames of weightlifting equipment, a man reputed to be one of Toronto’s more successful dealers in anabolic steroids unashamedly describes their effect on women. “You take a good-looking woman and she goes on ’roids,” he tells a male reporter, “she comes back in a few weeks and she’s got a heavier beard than yours and a deeper voice.”

COMPETING IN THE SPIRIT OF OLYMPIAD

He has been described as an Atlas, forced to bear Canada’s wounded pride on his broad shoulders when he strides into Barcelona’s Olympic arena. But it is a burden that the six-foot, five-inch, 215-lb. decathlete—the country’s brightest hope for an Olympic track-and-field medal this year—would just as soon ignore.
REVIVING THE DREAM 4445

REVIVING THE DREAM

Olympic dreams usually start in innocent adolescence, when everything seems possible, and gradually gain substance with small hard-won victories over time. That was certainly the case with Canadian sculler Silken Laumann. After years of trials and training, successes and setbacks, the 27-year-old native of Mississauga, Ont., seemed headed for a glorious golden reality at the Barcelona Olympics.

A GLITCH IN THE BIG RED MACHINE

In a dandelion-filled field outside Moscow, a well-muscled blonde takes aim at two roughhewn stakes poking out of the uncut grass. With short, sharp grunts of effort, Svetlana Krevelyova sends a nine-pound metal ball arcing towards those markers, which indicate the women’s Olympic shot put record of 22 m, 24 cm.
A HAUNTED PAST 5051

A HAUNTED PAST

Olympic athletes are driven by many things: a lust for fame, the hunger for money or just the elemental desire to be the best at what they do. For Jens Fiedler, a 22-year-old sprint cyclist competing for Germany in Barcelona, there is an added motive—the need to prove that he can win without drugs.
