For Olympian Michelle Perry, the initial results of her addition-by-subtraction approach are encouraging. With time and energy being precious, Perry, who finished 14th in the heptathlon at the 2004 Athens Games, is forgoing the event to concentrate on the 100-meter hurdles.

Some rest and relaxation on a level where she could win with one arm tied behind her back? Not for Jacob; there's nothing low key about the way she swims.
