Retirement? "Not before I'm 100, then we'll see," says Pang, who first took up the sport as a 10-year-old in Hong Kong. His competition schedule has changedhe downshifted several years ago from the 200 meters to 50-meter eventsbut his favorite stroke hasn't. "I love the freestyle," says the Monterey Park, Calif., resident, who takes the bus to his local pool for 6 a.m. workouts five days a week. "My doctors told me seven days was too much," says Pang, who is legally blind. "I think they just don't want me to win all the medals."
