Monday was freedom day for more than 100 high school athletes who play for Southern Section teams. They became eligible to compete in football, cross-country, girls' tennis, girls' golf and girls' volleyball after sitting out the first month of the season under new CIF transfer rules. They either didn't change their residence, didn't move with an entire family unit or got caught up in one of the many transfer rules that can restrict eligibility. Under new CIF transfer rules, instead of having to sit out a year, they're eligible after a monthlong sit-out period.

South Africa's top sports official said soccer players should be the first to return to international competition now that the country has been welcomed back into the Olympic fold. "We would like soccer to be the first sport because it is totally non-racial and is played by the overwhelming majority of sportsmen in South Africa," said Sam Ramsamy, head of the newly recognized National Olympic Committee of South Africa.

Upon checking into their village at the 1983 Pan American Games in Caracas, Venezuela, athletes received room keys. But the keys, for the most part, were irrelevant. Many of the rooms didn't have doors. Amid a recession, the Venezuelans were unable to complete construction of the village and other facilities before the Games began. Some U.S. sports federations felt compelled to book the few available hotel rooms so that athletes could rest comfortably the night before competitions.
