SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Bernard Williams can smile again. The frown he wore around town for a week - after running an unhappy sixth in the U.S. Olympic trials 100-meter dash final - is gone. The transformation took exactly 20.30 seconds. That's the time it took the Carver graduate to place third in the 200-meter dash final yesterday at Sacramento State's Hornet Stadium, clinching his ticket to the Athens Games. The 20.30 was his slowest 200 time of the trials - he had run 20.07 in the quarterfinals and 20.15 in the semifinals Saturday.

PALO ALTO, Calif. - James Carter has been to the Olympic Games and been a busy traveler on the international circuit the past three years. But he has never won a national championship gold medal, either, and he figures it's about time. This afternoon, for instance. After a stadium-record time of 49.47 seconds in the semifinals of the men's 400-meter hurdles at the USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships yesterday at Stanford University's Cobb Track, Carter is rated as a top choice in today's eight-man final.
