"Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel" this week on HBO (premiering at 10 p.m. Tuesday) will have a couple of Olympic features, along with a profile of Bill Parcells.
"What It Takes" is a segment examing women's gymnastics by Jon Frankel and the requirements to make the Olympic team.
"Deadly Ride" by Frank DeFord looks at Olympic equestrian sports. Cross-country is the most challenging and has recently come under scrutiny. The report says in the last two years, 15 riders and 12 horses have been killed while competing.
"Run to Freedom" is a profile of Sudanese 1,500 runner Lopez Lomong, who was taken from his home at age 6 and imprisoned by rebel soldiers. Following years in a refugee camp, Lomong was brought to the United States and raised by a new family. Mary Carillo is the correspondent.
Andrea Kremer does the feature on Parcells and his reputation for taking mediocre NFL teams and making them into winners.
