  The Paper: Sports History
Sports pages — let alone entire sections of sports coverage — were decades in the future.

Sports Minister Makhenkesi Stofile said Wednesday the government will intensify programs to boost the number of fl players in traditionally white sports.
Progress has been made in breaking down racial barriers in most sports since the country's first all-race elections in 1994, but many poor fl and mixed-race athletes are denied the chance to compete at top levels because of insufficient funding and training opportunities.
In an interview with The Star on Feb. 21, Tutu rejected racial preference policies in sport as "tokenism" and "an insult to all those involved." He said the best way to integrate traditionally white games like rugby and cricket was to invest in better facilities in disadvantaged communities.

Although croquet is a rather young sport, its ancestry can be traced at least to the 14th century, and there are a couple of stories about how it originated.
One is that lawn bowlers developed an indoor form of their sport to be played during the winter, adding hoops and mallets to make the game more challenging on the much smaller playing area.
In order to promote the sport in general, the USCA promulgates rules for four different versions of croquet: Backyard nine-wicket, American six-wicket, international six-wicket, and golf croquet, which uses the nine-wicket layout.
