A militant shot to death in

worldwide firestorm. Criticism it's

critics call a racist skit. The

joke it might have been, but

alongside the media here, average

Americans aren't laughing. In fact,

they've flooded the country's

my perception of what I'd assume

would come out of Australia. Adding,

attached with blackface. And if

they didn't, they do now.

AFL bad boy Brendan Fevola is in

him to his mother in rehab. It'll

be a matter not if, when he will

There's been an amazing result in

They may not be as sprightly as

they once were, but there's no

stopping 28,000 athletes here for

the World Masters Games. The event

was launched at Sydney's Olympic

park this morning by competitors

who could put much younger people to shame.

It's a venue normally associated

with the fastest, strongest and

most elite athletes. 3, 2, 1...

These athletes are not as fast or

strong as they used to be - commitment though, they have commitment though, they have in

spades. Lawn bowler Reg Trewin -

the oldest competitor at a 101.

Margot Bates - a sprightly 99 - is

in five swimming events and is

chasing her 200th gold medal - but

she still hates training. My son

keeps me on the ball. I'm in bed

sometimes when he calls, and he

says, "Come and get your togs and

gogs on, we're off". And what time

is that? Oh, 9:00am! This is the seventh World Masters Games seventh World Masters Games and the

largest. 28,000 athletes from 95

countries - three times the number

who competed at the Sydney Olympics.

As you'd expect with so many older competitors, the medical

preparations for the next eight

days have been critical. In fact,

there are more chiropractors

associated with these games than

there have been for any other

sporting event. But competing is

not the first challenge - that's

the long queue to register. We've

been waiting about an hour and half. Organisers

Organisers say it simply can't be

helped. This is going to be a

terrific event. We're sorry if

people have to stand in a queue,

but with the size of event,

unfortunately, that is a bit of a

reality. Even with the wait, good

humour abounds. You should expect

that. Last word goes to Margot -

who's penned a special song for

those tough coaches who pushed the

athletes to get here. SINGS: He

then, hands me a plan, I say, "I can't". He

can't". He says, "You can". And so
