Mary Sanders earned the United States' only spot in rhythmic gymnastics at the Athens Olympics, winning all four categories at the Olympic trials yesterday in San Jose.
Jennifer Parilla won the trampoline competition at the San Jose State University Events Center and will make her second Olympic trip this summer.
Sanders -- a dual citizen of Canada and the United States -- won the hoop, ball, clubs and ribbon categories to finish with a score of 105.175.
A five-time member of the Canadian national team, the 18-year-old Sanders switched to the U.S. team two years ago.
Sanders defeated New York's Olga Karmansky by 9.65 points. Earlier this month, Sanders won the U.S. championships in Nashville with a 11.5-point margin.
Parilla 23, of Newport Beach, Calif., finished the trampoline competition with a total score of 101.70, easily outjumping Jaime Strandmark's mark of 96.90.
Dover Excels in Dressage
Three-time Olympic medalist Robert Dover won the freestyle segment to sweep the U.S. Olympic dressage trials in San Juan Capistrano, Calif.
Aboard FBW Kennedy, Dover scored 81.700 percent, bringing his total over two weekends to an overall weighted average of 78.478 percent for his four victories.
Dover will compete in his sixth Olympics. He has won three team bronze medals.
Also earning spots on the Olympic team from the trials were Guenter Seidel of Del Mar, Calif., and Steffen Peters of Solana Beach, Calif. Dover, Seidel and Peters were three-quarters of the Olympic bronze medal team in Atlanta in 1996.
Montreal Is Inflamed
The torch for the Athens Games passed through the host city of the 1976 Summer Olympics amid flag-waving crowds and ceremonies honoring the ancient Greeks.
Montreal Mayor Gerald Tremblay was among those to set the flame in motion outside Olympic Stadium.
"This is a symbolic place," Tremblay said. "The Olympic flame has come back to Montreal."
Montreal is the 15th stop on the torch's 34-city tour on five continents. The flame will be in Antwerp, Belgium, today to start the European leg.
