Two consecutive women's gymnastics championships weren't enough for UCLA. The Bruins captured two individual titles Saturday night, fulfilling the predictions for their Olympian-packed "Dream Team." Mohini Bhardwaj won the floor exercise, and teammate Yvonne Tousek scored the top mark on the balance beam to end a season that went exactly as it was supposed to.

Gunilla Lindberg of Sweden on Wednesday became only the second woman elected vice president of the International Olympic Committee. Lindberg, 57, will serve a four-year term as vice president. An IOC member since 1996, she has been on the 15-member, policy-making executive board since 2000. Anita DeFrantz of Los Angeles, who served from 1997 to 2001, was the IOC's first female vice president. Lindberg called DeFrantz a "role model who encouraged women members to stand for election."

The triumph wasn't in the title, even though Courtney Kupets is proud to share the 2004 U.S. Gymnastics women's all-around title with Carly Patterson. But the triumph for Kupets came from something deeper. It came from keeping up her spirits and her belief that an Achilles' tendon ruptured in the middle of the 2003 world championships would cost her no more than the gold medal that she failed to win last year.

Perks of winning a national championship, as told by the UCLA women's gymnastics team: * cards and flowers galore, some from the likes of Bart Conner and Nadia Comaneci; * a possible visit to the White House; * a brief reign as top jocks at a school recently ranked No. 1 in jocks by Sports Illustrated. And, finally, and perhaps most important: "It doesn't matter what we look like when we go out," junior Stella Umeh said.

Carly Patterson has become accustomed to drawing startled looks from adults and unabashed stares from kids when they recognize her as the Athens Olympic all-around gymnastics gold medalist. "It's OK," she said. "I'd do the same thing if Jessica Simpson was there." Life as an Olympic champion has been exhilarating and exhausting for Patterson, who visited Los Angeles this week to promote performances by the T.J.

Lenny Krayzelburg of the United States and Ian Thorpe of Australia shook off a drug-testing controversy and a near-boycott to set world records at a short-course World Cup swimming meet Sunday at Berlin. Thorpe, 17, the focus of drug-taking allegations last week, sped across the pool at Europasportpark arena, covering 200 meters in one minute 41.10 seconds. That broke his own record of 1:42.54. "I wanted to swim a good time, but that it's a world record surprised me," Thorpe said.

With its most talented women's gymnastics team in school history, UCLA had expectations of an undefeated season. As the defending NCAA champions and owner of this season's bull's-eye, the Bruins set that goal for themselves. With four Olympians coming in as freshmen, they could afford to have such a bold outlook. But while the Bruins have taken their performances to a higher level this season, they have found out that opponents are meeting the challenge.

Bar events continued to trouble American gymnasts at the world championships in Ghent, Belgium. After the men suffered one of the most dramatic collapses in the sport's history on the high bar the previous day, the U.S. women found themselves struggling on the uneven bars, making mistakes that might well have cost them medals in Friday's all-around competition. Russia's Svetlana Khorkina clinched gold for her third world title with 37.
