Host Bryant Gumbel takes a typically smug (and borderline xenophobic) look at the demanding Chinese sports schools that are producing scores of potential medalists for the Beijing Games - and some tears among the students (because we Americans never push our kids too hard at sports).

British rider David Miller, a former drug cheat, has cleaned up his act and leads the squad.
