Hot Shots

An evocative portfolio of images from the first week of competition in Barcelona
Author:

Goal oriented: The Canadian women's field hockey team was imposing but not impenetrable; they lost 2-0 to Australia.

Head and shoulders: Coxswain Garry Herbert and the Searle brothers, Greg and John, won gold for Britain.

Sideshow: Magic Johnson responded to a dunk by Karl Malone as the Dream Team creamed Germany.

Long distance conversation: Dominique Dawes, a 4'7" U.S. gymnast, chatted with 6'9" Brazilian hoopster Aristides Santos.

Clear sailing: Sailboarder Barbara Kendall of New Zealand looks like she's last, but in the end she won the gold.

High-handed: On the way to a team handball win, the Unified Team's Lyudmila Gudz eluded the U.S.'s Laura Coenen.

All wet: In the three-day event, Ralf Ehrenbrink of Germany, riding Kildare, made a splash but still came in 11th.

Liquid gold: Each night the dancing waters of the Font Montjuic at the Palau Nacional give a winning performance.
