Computer glitch credits everyone with a record

The bizarre Atlanta Olympic results service was in a generous mood Monday, awarding Asian records to all 36 weightlifters in the 64 kg snatch section.

The lucky lifters included 10 Europeans, five Latin Americans, two from the United States and one each from Africa and Canada.

Even more fortunate were Tony Analau of the Solomon Islands and Wang Guohua of China. They failed to register a lift. But, what the heck, they got Asian records, too.
