ATHENS - His chase of Mark Spitz is done, but Michael Phelps isn't. A year out of Towson High and a stroke or two from Olympic legend status, Phelps took a bronze medal in last night's 200-meter freestyle. Phelps was beaten by a savvy Australian and a veteran from the Netherlands. The result means he won't match the seven gold medals Spitz won in Munich, Germany, in 1972, the benchmark for Summer Olympic excellence. However, Phelps is still on track to make history of his own. Spitz won four individual events in Munich.

BARCELONA, Spain -- The son needed the father. It didn't matter that this was the 1992 Summer Olympics, that the stadium was packed, that the night was so hot and the air so thick that a haze hung over the place.Derek Redmond was trying to run and he was crying. His Olympics should have been over, but they weren't.He was down the back straightaway in this 400-meter semifinal last night, running for Great Britain, racing for his father and himself. And then the right hamstring cramped. Took him like a Lawrence Taylor tackle and whipped him to the ground.

LANDOVER -- Welcome back, Garfield Thompson. The last time Thompson, Mervo's first-year coach, was associated with a Mervo track team was in 1997, and as an 800-meter runner he helped the Mavericks win a state indoor title. They hadn't won a state indoor title since then -- until yesterday. Third-ranked Mervo captured the Class 3A-2A championship at the Prince George's Sports & Learning Center by dominating middle distances and winning the final event, the 1,600 relay, to defeat runner-up Middletown, 59-39.

The 43-year-old mother didn't play high-school or collegiate sports but says she's ready for the race because of an "extremely healthy diet" and lots of intense training.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - If anyone believes life is stranger than fiction, it is Michael Waltrip. The only previous win in Waltrip's career came here at Daytona International Speedway in the Daytona 500 after 462 futile starts. And at the very moment he was crossing the finish line in the sport's most important race, with his teammate, Dale Earnhardt Jr., finishing right behind him, his best friend and car owner Dale Earnhardt was killed in a crash a quarter-mile behind him. Last night in the Pepsi 400, Waltrip, in his 515th start, got his second career win. It came on the same track.
