Kathleen Sullivan received her first pair of prosthetics when she was 1. Now, she's a professional athlete preparing to compete in an international track and field competition in New Zealand. Born without legs from above the knee down, Sullivan, 31, hasn't let it slow her down. Doctors still don't know why she was born an amputee, and her mother had a normal pregnancy. "I never owned a wheelchair in my entire life," she said. "And I guess that's a testament to my parents and what I was willing to try. " The Burbank resident tried on her first pair of running legs at 26 when she moved to California after college to pursue an acting career.

A day after winning the California State Criterium Championships, the 32-year-old McCauley won the 70-minute professional men's competition in Glendale, outsprinting Tony Cruz in the final stretch of the 6/10th of a mile course to take home $300.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE ? The sounds filling the air in the Glendale YMCA gymnasium Saturday morning were familiar enough ? the squeaking of sneakers running up and down the hardwood and the intermitent shrill chirp of a referee's whistle. The sights of the Inaugural G' Day Netball Tournament, however, would likely be foreign to most American sports enthusiasts, a fact that the event's organizers and participants hope to soon change. Netball, invented in the United States in 1895 as an offshoot of basketball intended for women, has flourished in other parts of the world, particularly Commonwealth and Carribean nations.
