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.

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.

ATHENS -- Hours after international gymnastics officials acknowledged a key judging mistake in the men's all-around event, U.S. Olympic officials said yesterday that they would support South Korean officials in a bid to award duplicate gold medals to American Paul Hamm and Korean Yang Tae Young. The International Gymnastics Federation ruled Yang had unfairly, though unintentionally, been docked one-tenth of a point Wednesday in the all-around final. As a result, Hamm became the first American to win a gold medal in the event, and Yang got the bronze.

ATHENS - The boos rang off the rafters. The foot stomping could be felt in the grandstand railing. The derisive whistles pierced the Olympic decorum. After a week of finger pointing, protests and tantrums, the fed-up crowd at last night's gymnastics final took matters into its own hands and halted competition in an 8 1/2 -minute demonstration of anger. All-around champion Paul Hamm fidgeted silently, waiting for the crowd to quiet so he could perform on the high bar. Finally, Russian gymnast Alexei Nemov - the wronged man in the eyes of the crowd - stepped forward to restore order.

ATHENS - Paul Hamm did not medal in two individual events yesterday. It didn't matter that much, though. He still has his all-around gold medal. And no one will take that victory from him. Rejecting controversy, Hamm again proclaimed himself the all-around champion. The International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) responded to a South Korean protest Saturday, reviewed the competition and suspended three judges after determining bronze medalist Yang Tae Young was robbed of a tenth of a point last week on the parallel bars.

Down time could be hard to come by for some NBA players this summer. The league finishes playing the third week in June at the conclusion of the NBA Finals, and on July 26 members of the Olympic squad begin practice at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville. After knocking the rust off, the team will spend two weeks on a barnstorming tour of Europe before settling in Athens, Greece, to begin play Aug. 15 against Puerto Rico. Other preliminary opponents are Greece, Australia, Lithuania and Angola.

ATHENS - Paul Hamm's historic victory on Wednesday night in the men's gymnastics all-around competition came under scrutiny yesterday because of an apparent judging error, although it does not appear he will lose his gold medal. That cannot be said for U.S. swimmer Aaron Peirsol, whose disqualification from the 200-meter backstroke Thursday night was overturned but might still be disputed. Neither case has reached the level of the scandal at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, when a French judge was determined by the international federation for the sport to have helped fix the pairs skating competition.

SYDNEY, Australia - The Russian gymnast threw a kiss to the crowd, strutted for the cameras and talked about the newborn son he has never seen. The American left the floor with a scowl on his face and a chip on his shoulder. That was the scene last night, as Alexei Nemov of Russia claimed the men's all-around gymnastics gold at the Summer Olympics, while the great American hope, Blaine Wilson, finished sixth. It was an entertaining and elevating show dominated by Nemov, the Baryshnikov of the gymnastics world.
