Olympics highlights

By Compiled by Times staff writer

© St. Petersburg Times, published September 25, 2000


Unwelcome competitor

Cuba's Javier Sotomayor won the silver medal in the high jump, but some believe he should still be serving a suspension for a positive cocaine test.

Hunter positive

IOC vice president Dick Pound confirmed to the Sydney Morning Herald that American shot putter C.J. Hunter, husband of Marion Jones, tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs shortly after the U.S. trials. Hunter withdrew from the Games citing a knee injury.

U.S. reaches for gold

Mia Hamm scored the 127th goal of her career, a record for international play, to lift the soccer team to a 1-0 victory over Brazil. The Americans meet Norway for the gold Thursday.

Sheer joy

The smile that eluded hard-edged Svetlana Khorkina on Thursday when the faulty vault threw her off came easily Sunday after the Russian's victory on the bars. Sporting a new pageboy haircut, Khorkina's persona softened and her joy was evident as she clinched her signature event.

Off-beat

Look it up

The media guide for the South Korean baseball team has this to say about assistant coach Byung-chul Kang:"Kang has been a manager in Korea for almost 10 seasons but has not been so successful in recent times. He was fired midway through last season because of a losing record. After he was replaced, the team won the championship. He is currently manager of SK Wyverns team, which has the worst record in the entire (Korean baseball league) and is seen as somewhat of a surprise choice to the roster."

What time is it?

Sydney is 15 hours ahead of Tampa Bay, so as most people read their morning paper, today's events are wrapping up in Australia. We have converted schedules and other references to Tampa Bay time. For the latest results, check the Times Web site at http://www.sptimes.com/olympics.

While you were sleeping

Some of the events completed after deadline for today's paper: Gymnastics event finals, tennis finals, the U.S.-France men's basketball game and track and field, including finals in the men's and women's 400 meters and the women's pole vault
