be published and served in the manner set out in section 3(l) and

American speedskater Charles Jewtraw
won the opening contest, the 500 metres,
prompting the Boston Globe to slap the
headline "Our Flag At Top Of Olympic
Mast" atop The Associated Press story.
Read a few paragraphs into it and you ll
learn that the swinging-arm style that
has become mandatory for sprinters since
was considered revolutionary when Jew-
traw and US teammate Joe Moore (who
finished 8th) unveiled it before a handful

But it didn t take long to figure out
why those traditional Nordic powers were
so eager to get their own Olympics.
Cross-country sensation Thorleif Haug
won three golds, enabling Norway to top
the medals table with 17 total. In what
turned out to be a historical footnote,
Haug was also awarded the bronze in the
ski jump in 1924; but 50 years later a
scoring error was confirmed and the
medal was finally delivered---by Haug s
daughter no less---to its rightful owner,
American Anders Haugen.
Finland finished second with 11, thanks
to Clas Thunberg s speed-skating haul
of three golds, a silver and a bronze. The
28 medals by Norway and Finland were
more than all the rest of the competing
The United States and Britain finished
tied for third with four medals each.
Canada won only one medal, but served
notice it was a hockey power to be reck-
oned with by scoring 122 goals and allow-
ing just three en route to the gold. (AP)

SAN DIEGO---The chance to win a third straight
America s Cup with Oracle Team USA was a bigger
allure to skipper Jimmy Spithill than taking a big-
money offer from a foreign challenger.
Spithill announced yesterday that he ll be back
with Oracle Team USA for the 35th America s Cup,
which is expected to be held in August 2017.
The 34-year-old Australian said his relationships
with software billionaire Larry Ellison, who owns
Oracle Team USA, and syndicate CEO Russell Coutts,
a five-time cup winner, are important.
"It s obviously great to be back," Spithill told The
Associated Press by phone from San Francisco. "There
were some really great offers out there but I ve been
a part of this since Day 1, when we had our first win
in 2010. Larry was a big part of it for me. He s always
sort of backed me up even in some tough times, and
Russell. I wouldn t be here without them. I want the
opportunity, too, to potentially win three in a row
as a skipper. This is really such a great team. I want
to keep it going with them and I want to go for the
In 2010, Spithill became the youngest skipper to
win the America s Cup when Oracle beat Alinghi of
Switzerland in a two-race sweep off Valencia, Spain.
Spithill helped lead one of the greatest comebacks
in sports when Oracle Team USA won eight straight
races against Emirates Team New Zealand in the 34th
America s Cup on San Francisco Bay in September.
The Kiwis reached match point at 8-1 on September
18 before Oracle began its comeback.
Spithill said one of the syndicates that made a run
at him was Italy s Luna Rossa, which he skippered
in the 2007 America s Cup challenger series.
But Spithill said he wouldn t be where he is today
without Ellison and Coutts, a New Zealander who
sailed unbeaten through three straight America s Cup
matches, for two different countries, before becoming
Oracle Team USA s CEO.
Spithill said Ellison, the CEO of Oracle Corp, "is
a bit of a mentor but also a good mate. To get that
relationship with someone like that, they re probably
few and far between in a lifetime. It s the same with
Russell. They re obviously both tough guys and com-
petitors, but are very fair. That s the kind of envi-
ronment I enjoy working in. They give you kind of
the burden of trust. They re not micro-managers.
It s a kind of environment in which you get oppor-
tunities, and that allows you to grow. You become
a better person and better athlete. I learned a lot
from the last campaign and I m excited about the
Despite being funded by Ellison s fortune, Oracle
Team USA had a rough buildup to the last America s
Cup. Spithill was at the wheel of the team s first 72-
foot catamaran when it capsized on San Francisco
Bay in October 2011, costing Oracle nearly four months
of training time.
Last August, the team was snared in one of the
biggest cheating scandals in America s Cup history
when it was revealed it had illegally modified boats
in warm-up regattas. Four days before the America s
Cup match began, Oracle Team USA was docked two
points and a key sailor was booted from the team.
Oracle struggled badly against Team New Zealand
before making a key crew change and refining its
sailing technique to take advantage of its boat s clear
Spithill thinks it will be tough to defend the cup
"I think the challengers this time will be stronger
than ever," he said. "The event commercially is in a
place it s never been before. The comeback was a
huge part of that. When people tuned in, they were
blown away by the product. There s a lot of interest.
We need to develop a very good programme as
