CHULA VISTA, Calif. -- Al Heppner took a huge gamble in the highest-stakes race of his life. Heppner, a 29-year-old race walker from Columbia, Md., opened a big lead during the first 30 kilometers (18.6 miles) of the U.S. Olympic trials 50-kilometer (31.1-mile) event yesterday on the roads of the Chula Vista Marina, and seemed to be booking his dream ticket to the August games in Athens, Greece. But it turned into a nightmare. He faded to fifth place and labored over the finish line in 4 hours, 23 minutes, 52 seconds, in a race won by Duke alumnus Curt Clausen, 36, of the New York Athletic Club in 3:58:24.
