I would suggest you create a formula field and in the formula editor put something like this:

crbold + Left ({stringfield}, 5) + ': ' + MID({stringfield}, 6, 20) + ', ' + crregular + crred + MID({stringfield}, 27, 20) + crblack

This assumes that in your stringfield the "sport" is always first, then it's followed by a semi-colon, then the male name is second and the femail name is third. You may need to change the hardcoded numbers and use the instr() function to get their relative starting and ending points in the string field.

Hope this helps!
