Last Saturday, after Young had won her third medal, the bronze in the 1,000 behind teammate Leah Poulos, she remained as cool as ever. "When I looked at the medal on the victory stand last night," she said, "I thought it had the nicest color."
After Innsbruck, she will compete in the women's world championships at Gj�vik, Norway and in the world sprint championships in Berlin. Then she will kick off her skates and have one last go at bicycle racing in the world championships in Sicily this summer, hoping to repeat her performance of 1973 when she was the world sprint champion. At Montreal she will root for her brother Roger, who won a gold medal in cycling at the Pan-Am Games last year, and for Ochowicz. The two hope to make the Olympic four-man 4,000-meter pursuit team. Then Sheila and Och will get married and watch a new U.S. skating crop lace up and race.
