It's the 100-meter dash on skates, a wild sprint to determine the fastest man on ice. The 500 meters is the race in which speedskater Dan Jansen took his memorable Olympic slips and spills, where Canadian Jeremy Wotherspoon wiped out 4 years ago after just four strides. His tumble cleared the way for American Casey FitzRandolph to capture the gold medal in an Olympic record time: 1 minute, 9.23 seconds. FitzRandolph is back to defend his title against a field that includes fellow American (and fellow 2002 medalist)

Bill "Peanut" Gaines vs. Eddie Johns. Twenty years ago this spring, that rivalry created intense interest among South Jersey track fans, and once attracted a crowd of nearly 4,000 onlookers at Deptford High for the Gloucester County Championships. Gaines, a speedster from Clearview Regional High, and Johns, the former Kingsway High sprinter, met head-to-head just three times during their scholastic careers. The two close friends, whose schools were less than five miles apart, were occasionally the subject of debate as to which was the faster of the two, although by the end of 1967, Gaines had clearly settled that question.

Tom Corbett is about to make history. On Tuesday, the Republican will either be the first Pennsylvania governor to lose a reelection try since the 19th century, or he will overcome a double-digit polling deficit with an unprecedented late surge. Corbett and Democrat Tom Wolf have entered the mobilization stage of the campaign, traveling the state to push their partisans to turn out, a harder task in a midterm race than in a presidential year. Both are bringing high-powered motivational help to the region Sunday evening.

Even with the city's decision to call off its push to host the 2024 Summer Olympic Games, Mayor Nutter, business leaders, and civic boosters can all be proud of having successfully positioned Philadelphia as a legitimate contender. Given the long odds of any metro area winning such an international race, it was an honor for Philadelphia to be among the 35 cities the U.S. Olympic Committee invited to make a pitch for the Games. The latest effort clearly stood on the shoulders of former Mayor John F. Street's 2006 bid for the 2016 Games, which eventually went to Rio de Janeiro.
