  • A Jewish Olympian Reflects

    September 28, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    As an athlete training with a single-minded focus of becoming the best I could possibly be, I think I sometimes lost sight of the big picture. I had no idea of the impact that our gold-medal victory in the 1984 Games would have on not only my life, but on the lives of others as well....

    It's finally here. Parents across the city and valleys can be heard breathing a sigh of relief as their children return to the familiar routine of school. No more August Angst, wondering what to do in that stretch of time between camp and classroom.
