Not long ago, Victor Ramos was on the run in jungle-swathed hills, hunted by marauding militiamen who had marked him and his family for death. Today, he'll be carrying the Olympic flag and heading the team from East Timor as it marches into the main stadium just ahead of host Australia to begin the Sydney Games. "We'll definitely be there," said team leader Frank Fowlie on the eve of the opening ceremony.
The race to get here was in question, but the result of the meet never was. SCATS Gymnastics, which played host to a dual meet with the Philippine national team Saturday night, easily handled the visitors 184.975 to 176.50. The top three all-around honors went to SCATS gymnasts. Katie Antolin, with 37.635 points, won the meet, dubbed the Surf City International, with teammates Amy Young (37.175) and Debra Mink (36.575) placing second and third.

The baseball ground rules are different in Cambodia. A ball hit off the water buffaloes grazing in the outfield is in play, but a ball lost in the adjoining rice paddy is not. And timeout must be called whenever a motorcycle approaches on the dirt road that cuts through the outfield. "You can't put it in perspective with words," said Jim Small, managing director for Major League Baseball's operations in Asia. "You just need to see it." But even then you can't always believe what you're seeing.

The Cal State Fullerton women's gymnastics team is going to get a quick transfusion of talent before opening the season in January. "It's like a great early Christmas present," Titan Coach Lynn Rogers said.
