At first, the headaches always passed, and Florentina Mangu never gave them a second thought. She and her husband Florine were too busy thinking about their future, and working to save enough money to reunite with their two children, Cristina, 18, and Adrian, 16, who stayed with Florentina's sister when the couple left Romania two years ago to escape from the chaos of 40 years of communism.

"Retiring myself after the Barcelona Games, I could have been a hero, no?" asks IOC President Juan Antonio Samaranch. Looking down momentarily, he thinks about what might have been, then adds: "I cannot regret. I have to write my history again."
