Subject: Grand Prix of Ostrava

From yesterday's l'Equipe, some rather confusing results from the Grand
Prix of Ostrava:

"Men: 1. Ivankof (BUL), 2. Joutchef (BUL), 3. Demianov (CRO)"

Do they mean Ivanov from BUL or Ivankov from BLR?  Does Joutchef = Jovtchev?

The women's results were:  1. Gogean, 2. Cacovean, 3. Viktoria Burban
(UKR), 5. Severino (FRA)

Sorry :)

I can see the headlines now:

"Drug abuse rampant in competative gymnastics! Coaches forcing sweet innocent
young girls to become addicts."

I'm surprised that the press hasn't tied gymnastics in to the Simpson trial.
(Let's see, the trial has a judge, and gymnastics has judges, and I'm sure at
least one parent owns a white Ford Bronco ...)


(Sorry Chicago Fans)
