"For as long as I can remember," she said, "I was known as Jenny Keim, the diver." She was speaking after she had qualified for the 2000 U.S. Olympic team by winning the 3-meter at the U.S. diving trials Wednesday night.

It's good to have experience. That's what Randy Ableman says. Ableman is the coach of Jenny Keim, a 1996 Olympian. And Keim, 22, of Miami, is in first place after the preliminary and semifinal rounds of the 3-meter Olympic diving trials. "I think it's easier for anyone the second time around," Ableman said. Keim, who finished ninth in Atlanta, has 536.55 points after the first 10 dives--five required and five optional. In second place is Michelle Davison, 20, from Boca Raton, Fla.

After her last dive at the U.S. Diving trials, after wowing the crowd with a succession of 9.0s and 9.5s no matter what the dive, Keim gave a fist pump and a smile.

Maybe the First Lady was quizzing Lewis about his campaign to run on the 400-meter relay team. Or perhaps Clark told stories about inadvertently wearing the wrong warmup suit on the medal stand. As it turned out, Hillary was a very vocal fan, Clark told her diving teammates. "It was pretty neat," Jenny Keim said.
