    No crowning glory for Lori

    By CHRIS STEVENSON -- Ottawa Sun
      ASAKAWA -- It marked the end of something that has been part of his life for close to 14 years and, after a week full of emotion, he seemed remarkably devoid of it when it was finally all over.
     "I was kind of indifferent to the whole thing," bobsled driver Chris Lori of Windsor said. He ended a tumultuous week and his career at the Spiral track with an 11th-place finish in the four-man bobsled competition with his crew of Ian Danney of Edmonton and twins Matt and Ben Hindle -- Matt sliding once again with a sutured gash in his shoulder after getting hit with a piece of glass in the athletes village Wednesday.

    Hindle's Olympic pane

    By TOM BRENNAN -- Calgary Sun
      Matt Hindle had to grin, if ruefully, about the amount of ink he, a little-known bobsledder, ended up receiving.
     "I would much rather have stayed anonymous," he said, "and not had it happen."
     The Calgarian's Olympic debut was "everything I thought it would be." And, unfortunately, a little more.
     Two days before Matt and twin brother Ben helped push Chris Lori's Canada 2 sled to an 11th-place finish in the four-man event, he got the fright of his life when a pane of glass was mysteriously shattered and fell from a sixth-floor window at the Olympic village. Hindle, luckily, suffered only a five-stitch cut on his left shoulder.
