MARADONA LOOKS FOR A CURE IN CUBA
MIGUEL PRIETO'S PARIS-DAKAR DISASTER
Twenty-five days with his upper body in plaster and unable to
move. For someone as active and adventurous as the Alavan rally driver Miguel
Prieto this must be torture. But this is the price to pay for the unfortunate
accident that he had while competing in the world famous Paris-Dakar rally (in
which he was second last year). With a broken bone in his spinal column the
racing driver has to take every precaution during his recovery. The whole of
February prostrated in his home Vitorian before further tests to see if the
bone has fixed will be followed by months of rehabilitation. However his first
problem was during the journey back from Madrid where he had been operated on.
"I never thought that road, which f use every weekend, had no many potholea*.
It was torlufou.'-,. " This is what February holds for Preito; eat as little as
possible so as not to put on weight, drink two litres of water daily to keep
his liver functioning correctly, exercise his legs and arms regularly so that
they don't lose too much muscular mass and of course look after all those other
minor injuries suffered in the crash. But at least his humour is intact. "I
might have been knocked down, but I'm still standing. "

CAMACHO THREATENS TO LEAVE
Real Madrid's participation in the Club World Championship has given Camacho and the Federation unexpected problems. Friendly games involving the Spanish national side and league games involving the 'whites' have coincided and subsequently created friction between the club and the Federation. Camacho decided that the situation was ridiculous and threatened* to resign if league and national side games clashed* again The manager will not have to resign after all as the next game that Spain plays will be two days after Real Madrid's league game.
RAMS WIN SUPERBOWL
In one of the best games in the history of the tournament the San Louis Rams won the 24th Super Bowl by beating Lhe Tennesse Titans 23-16. In a thrilling* final quarter the Titans came back into a game that the Rama had dominated in the previous three periods. However the night belonged to the Rams' quarterback* Kurt Wamer who threw a total of 414 yards and made two touchdown* passes. In the last minute of the game he launched a 73 yard pass which wide receiver Isaac Bruce caught and converted into the winning touchdown. The 73,000 crowd packed* into the Georgia Dome were witnesses to one of the most exciting ends to a final that paralizes the United States every January.
BUT WHAT HAPPENED TO BASKONIA?
Perhaps the defeat to the eventual champions was the only thing to expect as the host team never wins the tournament despite having the advantage of playing in front of an adoring crowd. The real reason however was that the team is still having problems in its interior game where the pivots simply don't catch the rebounds. When you add to this the fact that the 3-point specialists are not producing and that Bennett is not directing the team with tbc same inspiration as a year ago you can nol expect to compete with the best- At least the cup saw the debut of Nocioni in officail competition, Italian at last!
