Barcelona 92

Yesterday

Track: It was the greatest day in the history of U.S. Olympic track: five events, nine medals, four of them golds. Carl Lewis won a gold medal in the long jump -- his third gold medal in three Olympics. Dave Johnson was a study in courage, finishing third in the decathlon while competing on an ankle with a stress fracture. Kevin Young broke Edwin Moses' 9-year-old record in the 400 meter hurdlers. Gail Devers fell on her last hurdle and lost a certain gold. Gwen Torrence ran a race instead of her mouth as the United States won both the men's and women's 200 meters.
