ATLANTA -- American Allen Johnson broke the Olympic record in the 110-meter hurdles last night, running 12.95 seconds to win the gold medal and finishing just ahead of fellow American Mark Crear.Johnson, who established himself as the premier athlete in the 110-meter event with a victory at the 1995 world championships, knocked down almost every hurdle, but he got over the one that counted -- winning his first Olympic medal."I don't know if I'd call it perfect, but it's a good continuation of my short career," said Johnson, who was born in Washington and grew up in Northern Virginia.

In response to former Mayor Sheila Dixon's letter ( "Sheila Dixon: Baltimore isn't perfect but it's getting better," March 11), I beg to differ that we are better off today than in 2000. In 2000, Baltimore's gangs weren't as organized as we see them today. The anti-establishment they preach is a cancer to all the good works that are put into effect to help our people. Their mentally truly undermines unity of all people. I live in East Baltimore and grew up in Cherry Hill. What I see now is far more dangerous then what I came from.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Joe Clark used to be known as the most famous high school principal in America. He was a bat-toting, suspension-writing disciplinarian who turned around an inner-city high school in New Jersey, a man lionized in the film "Lean On Me." With apologies to Marion Jones and husband C.J. Hunter, Clark now heads America's first family of track and field. Hazel Clark, his 22-year-old daughter, won the 800 meters at the U.S. track and field trials yesterday in 1 minute, 58.97 seconds.

EUGENE, Ore. - Sprinter Marion Jones, hurdlers Gail Devers and Allen Johnson and pole vaulter Lawrence Johnson climbed to familiar positions at the top rung of the victory platform. Tireless distance runner Regina Jacobs won her second gold medal of the U.S. National Outdoor Track and Field Championships and nearly added a third before the curtain came down yesterday on the final day of the four-day meet at the University of Oregon's Hayward Field. But Bernard Williams took the day off. The 23-year-old graduate of Baltimore's Carver High School, who won the NCAA 100-meter title last year for the University of Florida, and earned an Olympic gold medal as second runner on the U.S. 4x100-meter relay team at the Sydney Games, had been tabbed as a potential 200-meter gold medalist at the world championships in Edmonton, Alberta, in early August.

FAIRFAX, Va. -- Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? Certainly not the 2,500 enthusiastic fans who attended the D.C. Invitational track meet yesterday at George Mason University Field House. Johnny Gray, almost fabled as a front-runner in a career that goes back two decades, found himself last in an 800-meter field of seven with one lap to go. "At that point and being at the back almost throughout, I was thinking, `It's over,' " said Gray, 39. "But I've been around long enough to know you never just cruise in."

What Marilyn Knight remembers most about the 1996 Summer Olympics is how little sleep she got. Knight would go to bed early to get up for her job as a licensed practical nurse at a Baltimore nursing home, only to be awakened a couple of hours later by her son, James Carter.Carter, then a recent graduate of Mervo and on his way to Hampton (Va.) University later that summer, could not contain his enthusiasm in watching Michael Johnson and Allen Johnson on television during their gold-medal performances in Atlanta.
