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.

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.

NEW ORLEANS -- There was something anticlimactic about the event finals at the 1995 National Championships, especially for women's all-around champion Dominique Moceanu.Moceanu, who became the youngest female to win the national title in the 33-year history of the event, did not give a solid-gold performance last night at the Louisiana Superdome.In fact, she was shut out of a gold. And shaken.The 13-year-old took a frightening spill off the uneven bars, when she slipped on dismount, catapulted away from the high bar and skidded to her knees.

He scored 59.025 points and led a medal sweep by gymnasts of the soon-to-vanish Unified Team.
