For Yvette Bates, former USC track star, last month's long jump final in the Olympic track and field trials was a heartbreaking experience. Bates finished in a three-way tie for second but only the top three make the Olympic team and the women she had tied beat her out because their next-best jumps had been better than hers. There are lots of fourth-place finishers in the Olympic trials, but Bates' near miss had a few interesting twists.

Triple jumping is their specialty, but they're limited to domestic competition because the relatively new event for women isn't recognized by the International Amateur Athletic Federation, nor is it included in the Olympic program.
