Jim Terrell of the U.S. had to be treated on the dock for
dehydration after failing to qualify for the finals in the men's
500-meter singles. Defending Olympic champion Nikolay Bukhalov
of Bulgaria, who struggled through the competition's early
heats, finished a strong second in his singles heat. Hungary's
Gyrogy Kolonics and Csaba Horvath, the reigning world champions,
qualified for the men's 500-meter doubles final.

All four U.S. semifinal entries failed to qualify for the finals
at Lake Lanier. John Mooney and Stein Jorgensen, the 200-meter
world champions, finished a disappointing ninth in the semis for
the men's 500-meter doubles. Three-time Olympian Traci Phillips
finished ninth as well, in the women's 500-meter singles. Renn
Crichlow, the 1991 world champion, was eliminated in the men's
Elena Vitrichenko and Ekaterina Serebryanskaya of Ukraine were
the top two qualifiers for today's semifinals at the UGA
Coliseum in Athens. Bulgaria's Maria Petrova, who tied
Serebryanskaya for last year's world title, also advanced
easily. Jessica Davis of the U.S. flubbed a behind-the-back toss
in her ribbon performance to fall to 30th in the competition.
Only the top 20 gymnasts moved on to the semifinal round.
TRACK AND FIELD
The U.S. was the fastest qualifier for all four relay
finals--the men's 4X100 and 4X400 and the women's 4X100 and
4X400. Canada, anchored by Donovan Bailey, who won the 100-meter
gold medal last Saturday, qualified second fastest for the men's
4X100, with a time of 38.36. In the women's 4X100, a strong
Russian team anchored by Irina Privalova finished only .51 of a
second behind the U.S. in the qualifying heats.
Nigeria set national and African records with its 3:23.24, which
placed it second in the qualifying for the women's 4X400.
Finally, Jamaica was the only country to finish within three
seconds of the U.S. men in qualifying for the men's 4X400,
running a 2:58.42 to the Americans' 2:57.87. All of the relay
finals will be held tonight at Olympic Stadium.
