PROFILE: Derek Porter
Canadians sadly finish fourth
 ENRITH LAKES, Australia -- The tears in Derek Porter's eyes said it all.
 Part of it was the disappointment.
 Part of it, surely, was grim reality.

Porter's best still not good enough
By JIM KERNAGHAN -- London Free Press
 Derek Porter sat head bowed in his boat, a picture of fatigue and frustration, drifting aimlessly after one of the most crushing defeats in the final singles race of his long rowing career Saturday.
 It's doubtful but he may come back in another boat. He may move to Australia to be with girlfriend Tara Moss, a Canadian-born model working in Sydney.

Canadians resent being called losers
By NEIL STEVENS -- Canadian Press
 SYDNEY -- Derek Porter gave it all he had in finishing fourth in the men's single sculls race of the Olympic rowing regatta.
 Missing the podium was emotionally devastating to him. He was wiping tears from his face during post-race interviews.
