Tim Lefevre and his wife Cindy are the proud parents of twins. The fraternal twins, Ethan and Emma, were born Thursday and weigh in at 6 lbs each.
"That brings us to three kids.
Plans to race are on next year, but I have no idea how much of it I will be able to do."
Hughes 4th in Norway
Clara Hughes finished fourth in the women's 3,000-metre race for Canada's best result on Saturday at the all around world championships in long track speed skating.
"I'm very happy with the race," said Hughes, who won gold in the 5,000 and bronze in the 3,000 at the all around worlds last year. "It's been a real struggle so far to find the form that I had last season. But I felt like myself again today and I'm really motivated for the 5,000 (on Sunday). I felt my technique was good and solid. In the last two laps where it usually starts to hurt I felt like I could keep skating."

Cyclist Survives Fall from Bridge
Klein Bicycles Offers New Bike to Miami Cyclists Who Survives 70-foot Fall From Bridge
Story forwarded by Klein Bicycles
In a truly amazing story, 26-year-old Miami cyclist Jose Arellano survived a tremendous fall from the Miami's Rickenbacker Causeway. After being pulled from the ocean by a fisherman, Jose rushed to the top of the bridge only to find that a passerby had stolen his Klein bike.
Arellano is a customer of Miami Klein dealer Max Berger. Max calls the story, "amazing." "The Causeway is where we go in Miami to ride hills; we ride it all the time. It blew me away when Jose came into my store yesterday and told me what had happened, that's a big fall."
According to the Miami Herald, a witness says, "Arellano's front tire hit a pipe, flipping the bike and sending Arellano airborne over the barrier on the north side of the bridge." The same witness believes, "it's a miracle he's alive."
Klein Bicycles Connie Ryland is determined to help Arellano recover from his dramatic brush with disaster. "Klein will replace Jose's bike. We will build him a brand new custom painted Klein. We are as dedicated to our customers as they are to us. We want Jose to be a Klein customer for life."
Klein is currently working with Max Berger of Miami's Bikes to Go in an effort to replace the bike. In addition, Klein has offered a $500 reward to anyone who returns Arellano's stolen yellow Klein to Bikes to Go. Look for further details to be released as soon as they are available.
