    Norwich, a charming Vermont town of roughly 3,000 residents, has sent an athlete to almost every Winter Olympics for the past 30 years - and three times that athlete has returned with a medal. How does Norwich do it? To answer this question, New York Times reporter Karen Crouse moved to Vermont, immersing herself in the lives of Norwich Olympians past and present. There she discovered a culture that's the opposite of the hypercompetitive schoolyard of today's tiger moms and eagle dads.

    In an update last week on his website, Tiger Woods painted a picture that did not at all resemble a mug shot that would surface five days later. One month after fusion surgery on his back, Woods wrote, “I haven’t felt this good in years.” He added, “I’m walking and doing my exercises and taking my kids to and from school.”
