Going for the Gold

The 27th Olympiad, Sydney Olympics 2000, has begun. Athletes from 199 nations are meeting in Australia to compete for the Gold. Team spirit is a very important part of the Olympic Games. The Olympic oath reads, "In the name of all competitors, I promise that we shall take part in these Olympic Games, respecting and abiding by the rules that govern them, in the true spirit of sportsmanship, for the glory of sport and the honor of our teams."

Along with the US Men's and Women's Olympic Teams, this year the United States introduced a new team to compete on its behalf: the Canine Olympic Team. The US Canine Team is a multi-breed team comprised of the nation's top canine athletes. While the eyes of the world will be focused on human competitions, the US Canine Olympic Team will quietly compete with other canine teams in events such as Track & Field, High Jump, Broad Jump, Sprints, Distance Racing, Relays, Swimming, Tennis Ball, Paddling, Wrestling and Retrievals. The well-known American Great Dane, Scooby Doo, is expected to take the Gold in the High Jump event (often referred to as Boinging), but he faces stiff competition from the Australian contenders because they were, of course, trained by a kangaroo coach.
