Dave Elecciri, Capistrano Valley High School assistant football coach, sits in the Cougars' weight room with the same sense of pride that a young couple has in their first home. The room is filled with enough barbells, weights and weight machines to satisfy the body building appetites of Arnold Schwarzenegger or Lou Ferrigno. The walls are lined with slogans such as "If There's No Pain, There's No Gain" and "Whatever a Weak Muscle Can Do, A Stronger One Can Do It Better."

"American Gladiators" was an instant hit with Rhonda Williams when the television series made its debut five years ago. Lynn Williams, however, never found the show quite as intriguing as his wife. "It looked kind of phony," said Lynn Williams, 30. "I always thought I could whup a gladiator." Then the 6-foot-2, 230-pound Williams got his chance. He answered a casting call for a gladiator in January, 1992.

You remember Mark Spitz. He won seven gold medals for swimming in the 1972 Munich Olympics.

Spitz, 40, hopes to make the 1992 U.S. Olympic team and compete in the 100-meter butterfly event in Barcelona, Spain.
