This is an article from the Sept. 26, 1994 issue Original Layout

Jonathan Kort
ATLANTA
Anton, the top 16-year-old triathlete in the nation, earned a silver medal in the 15- to 17-year-old age division at the national triathlon championships, and his brother, Jonathan, 12, placed seventh in the under-12 category at the national iron-kids championships. Anton also finished third in his age group at the national duathlon (running and biking) championships, and that performance earned him a spot on the U.S. team that will compete at the world duathlon championships, in Tasmania this fall. Jonathan won the Atlanta and Augusta iron-kid titles earlier this summer and is the Eastern regional iron-kid champ.

Kristen Heilman
MIDDLETON, WIS.
Kristen, 13, became the youngest entrant ever to be named Outstanding Female Skier at the national water-ski show tournament. Earlier in the year she won the Midwest regional swivel title and two Wisconsin state crowns, in swivel and in adagio doubles with Erich Parpart of McFarland, Wis.

Mikey Minervini
EAST STROUDSBURC, PA.
Mikey, 10, who was born without a left hand and forearm, won three gold medals—in weapons, forms and sparring—in the 9- and 10-year-old age division at the world karate championships. He also placed first in full-contact sparring at the Junior Olympic taekwondo championships.

Lindsay Reinking
LOGANSPORT, IND.
Lindsay, a 12-year-old pitcher, led her under-12 girls' softball team to the league and city championships by putting together a 21-3 record. In 104 innings on the mound she had 257 strikeouts, five no-hitters and two shutouts. She also batted .404, with three doubles and a triple.

Tony Thompson
BELOIT, KANS.
Tony, 14, won three gold medals and established one national record in the 13-to 14-year-old age group at the AAU Junior Olympics. He threw the javelin 180'3½" to break the old mark of 175'3", set in 1988 by Troy Smith of San Antonio, and placed first in the shot put and discus.
