Canadian Pairs Get a Gold Medal

1NBA Inside Stuff is looking for a Kid Correspondent to report for Inside Stuff magazine and weekly TV show. If you're between 12 and 17, send in an audition tape and you could win a chance to write a feature on one of your favorite NBA or WNBA stars. For more details, and to find out how to enter, click here.

1 Jamie Sale and David Pelletier, the Canadian pairs team who gave a near-perfect (if not completely perfect) performance at the Olympics, have been awarded a gold medal after all. The pair originally placed second to the Russian pair due to questionable judging. Friday, February 15th, they were awarded a gold medal - but the Russians' medal was not taken away. This is the first time in Olympic history that there has been two golds, a bronze, but no silver medal in a competition. Do you think the Canadians should have a gotten a second gold medal? Do you think that the Russians should have been knocked down to a silver? right here.

1 The NBA's trading deadline is February 21st and several players could be on the move. Nick Van Exel of the Denver Nuggets has been asking for a trade all season and could be headed to the New York Knicks who may be trading Latrell Sprewell before the deadline. In other NBA news, the league is thinking of setting up a league somewhere on another continent (probably Europe) or adding two new teams outside North America.

1 Baseball's spring training is underway and several teams have new faces. The New York Yankees added homerun machine Jason Giambi and fatso pitcher David Wells - while the Atlanta Braves picked up All-Star, Gary Sheffield. The pre-season Grapefruit League games start February 25, 2002. For more on baseball, click here.

1Jeff Gordon will be the man to beat at NASCAR's season-opener Daytona 500 on February 17th. Jeff finished first during qualifying which will give him the pole position for Sunday's race. The 2001 race was won by Dale Earnhardt Jr. For more on NASCAR, click here.
