On the second night of the Phillips 66 National Championships at the Indiana University Natatorium in Indianapolis, several swimmers with local ties clinched spots in Barcelona, Spain, for next month's FINA World Aquatic Championships. Elizabeth Pelton, 19, a California sophomore from Towson, qualified for her third world championships on Wednesday after finishing second in the 200-meter backstroke behind the world-record holder, a future college teammate, Missy Franklin. Pelton's time of 2 minutes, 6.29 seconds topped her personal best by more than 1.2 seconds and is the second-fastest swim in the world this year.

Many Baltimoreans declare that their morning commute only becomes bearable when tuned into the crazy antics of WWMX-FM morning radio host Reagan Warfield. He regularly interviews world-famous celebrities and rock stars and banters with a widespread listening audience, but his most popular calling card is being the largely undefeatable star of the show's pop-culture trivia game "Smarter Than Reagan. " While many DJs enjoy the faceless public anonymity of radio, Warfield is known for participating in a number of regional charity events while also finding time to teach at his alma mater, Loyola University Maryland.

NEW ORLEANS -- Butch Reynolds is 400 meters from his most difficult race.Tonight, he can control the outcome in a final duel of speed and courage in the men's 400 at the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials.But if he wins that test, he will again be at the mercy of lawyers, courts, and an international sports federation, as he tries to bypass a two-year ban for steroids and run in the Summer Olympics of Barcelona, Spain."In my heart, I believe I'll be on that track in Barcelona," Reynolds said.

A thriving Mediterranean port since antiquity, Barcelona is culturally rich, tolerant, hospitable and stylish. Besides the Summer Olympics, which will be held there July 25 to Aug. 9, there are other sites and activities for visitors to see and do.It's a city for eating, dancing, shopping -- and above all, a great place to take a walk. As much as any city in Europe, Barcelona rewards the walker with sights worth staring at. There are sumptuous buildings from many eras, richly adorned with wrought iron, stained glass and statues; a wide array of shops, food and artifacts; and a handsome population passionately involved in its own days and nights.

BARCELONA, Spain -- There is an Olympic stadium perched on a hilltop and a boxing arena that fronts a bar. A marina juts out like a grand boulevard in the Mediterranean, but the sea is so polluted, sailors guzzle bottles of Pepto-Bismol to ward off a bacteria battle in the belly.The athletes' village is crammed with video games, bowling lanes and TV sets locked on MTV. But the apartment rooms have no air conditioning, and the village bars serve nothing stronger than soda.The Summer Olympics have come to the city of the three-hour lunch, the seven-hour workday and the midnight dinner.

Working to maintain its nuts and bolts reputation in manufacturing, the city has helped one of its own keep shelling out products in Baltimore. Managers of the 76-year-old Barcelona Nut Co. used city and state loans to buy and expand the West Baltimore company, which they purchased Aug. 1 from their bosses for an undisclosed sum. A $250,000 loan from the Baltimore Development Corp., the city's economic development arm, helped the managers buy Barcelona's South Fulton Street processing and packaging plant, said Tony Tsonis, president and one of three new owners.

Years ago, there was an absent-minded Baltimorean who had a copy of Barcelona, by the art critic Robert Hughes, that he always meant to read. He had never been to Barcelona or even to Spain, but there was something about the book - just the look of it, plus that sibilant-sounding title - that made him want to know what was inside. But in one move or another, Barcelona was mislaid, like so many other good intentions. Yesterday, the newly restored Roland Park branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library reopened after a lengthy and pricey construction job. Contented patrons ambled about here and there, appraising the intermingled new and old, largely paid for by private donations raised in the surrounding well-to-do community.

The clubs were the same, as were many of the players. The stadium was stuffed with supporters in Manchester United's red and FC Barcelona's claret and blue. But the trophy was not for winning the European Champions League. Rather, NBA star Kobe Bryant presented a sponsor's trinket to defender Nemanja Vidic to mark United's 2-1 victory in a friendly Saturday before an announced 81,807 at FedEx Field — a record crowd for a soccer match in the Washington area. The outcome won't soften the disappointment of losing to the Catalan club in the prestigious continental final in May at Wembley Stadium but will provide a dose of gratification heading into the English Premier League season in two weeks.
