ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The score indicated she was in second place, but everyone really knew better. Elise Ray of Columbia, Md., needed a 9.676 in the floor exercise last night to keep a slip on the balance beam from costing her the overall title in an Aussie Haircare Gymnastics Invitational she had otherwise dominated. Ray, a senior at Wilde Lake High School and the defending national champion in the floor exercise, responded with flair, scoring a 9.75 to take the overall title from 15-year-old Australian Allana Slater at the Bayfront Center.

ATLANTA -- The crowd at the Georgia Dome yesterday seemed ready for another eruption. American gymnasts Dominique Dawes and Shannon Miller appeared poised to give most of the 32,200 fans, as well as President Clinton and his family, what they had come to see in the women's all-around competition at the 1996 Olympic Games.It was what they had seen earlier this week, when Dawes and Miller helped the U.S. women to their first gold medal in Olympic team competition. With Dawes in first and Miller tied for second midway through yesterday's program, at worst it looked as if one was going to leave here with a medal.

Her right ankle, a traitor through much of her sophomore and junior seasons, was wrapped in supportive tape.Does it still hurt? she was asked."Not at all," she replied. "It feels better than ever."Two years ago, Williams missed three meets of her Towson University gymnastics season because of a stress fracture in her right ankle.

BEIJING - Over this year of monthly training camps and small meets, of national championships and Olympic trials, Martha Karolyi watched Nastia Liukin do double duty. Liukin had become an international star on uneven bars and balance beam. She has won world titles in those events, where her elegant long lines and training from her mother, Anna, who was a world champion rhythmic gymnast, are best displayed. But on the vault and floor exercise, Liukin had been at a disadvantage in major international meets, especially against her fellow American Shawn Johnson.

ATHENS -- Finally, Paul Hamm relaxed. Yesterday, he basked in the glory of his Olympic gymnastics all-around championship that he won late Wednesday, the first such victory by an American man. He reflected thoughtfully on his comeback win in one of the closest finishes in gymnastics history. "I did not sleep with it," he said of the gold medal hanging around his neck. "But it was right beside me when I went to bed." Shortly after his victory, he watched a replay of his horizontal bar routine that clinched the championship over South Koreans Kim Dae Eun and Yang Tae Young.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Even if Courtney Kupets had finished second last night at the U.S. Gymnastics Championships, it would have been a storybook comeback to a year filled with injury and rehabilitation. Instead, with a gutsy final routine, the 17-year-old from Gaithersburg won her second consecutive national title, tying Carly Patterson of Texas with a two-day total of 76.450 points. "What a wonderful way to win this, to tie with somebody who's your friend," said Kupets, unaware of the score she needed when she swung onto the uneven bars.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - It's good to be the king. Paul Hamm, the best all-around male gymnast in the world, put another jewel in his crown last night when he won the all-around title at the U.S. Gymnastics Championships. Although it was Hamm's third consecutive national all-around title, he did not take it for granted. Starting the evening with a eight-tenths of a point lead after Wednesday night's preliminary competition, he briefly lost his grip on the opening routine and then blasted back into first and stayed there through the final five events.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - All Blaine Wilson wanted last night was to make people say "holy cow" in head-shaking wonderment when he walked on the floor for the U.S. Gymnastics Championships. Thirteen weeks after surgery to repair a torn left biceps tendon, the old man of the men's gymnastics squad wanted to let people know not to scratch him off the roster of the Olympics team yet. His divine bovine moment will have to wait. After saying he might try two of the six events, Wilson, 29, withdrew from the competition when a team official asked him if he was going to try to compete and then submit an injury petition to be included in the Olympic Trials at the end of the month.

Heather Launse is one of those special college athletes. Her only goal as a member of the University of Pittsburgh gymnastics team has been for the Panthers to succeed amid an atmosphere of team unity and close friendships. Launse (Severna Park) has never lost sight of that goal throughout her sometimes trying four years at Pittsburgh, and she is beginning to reap the benefits as her career heads into the final weeks. Two weeks ago, Launse tied a school record on the vault (9.85) in a narrow loss to Ohio State, 196.050 to 195.225.
