Henry Andrade is a world-class hurdler and would-be Olympian who doesn't have a coach, sponsors or a training team. But he has something few athletes have: an entire country waiting to cheer him on. For the first time, Cape Verde, a tiny West African archipelago, will be represented in the Olympic games: Andrade, a dual citizen born to Cape Verdean parents, will bear the flag in Atlanta, and run the 110-meter high hurdles. At 33, it is almost certain to be his last chance.

Having just returned from a trip to Japan, where they did some charity work and scoured Asia for sponsors, the Santa Monica Track Club 400-meter relay team arrived at the 33rd annual Mt. SAC relays Saturday ready to go. Well, three of the four team members were there. Missing was leadoff runner Mike Marsh. The race was scheduled to go off at 1:35 and meet officials were vexed.

Diane Dixon and Valerie Brisco-Hooks have been stepping on each other's shadows a lot lately, which could only lead to one thing. They got on each other's nerves. For that reason, they were relieved to be running different events Friday in the national indoor championships before a crowd of 14,358 at Madison Square Garden. So what happened?

Carl Lewis has yet to reap the endorsement riches he envisioned during last summer's Olympics, but his travel agent isn't doing badly. A week ago tonight, Lewis was in Dallas winning the 60-yard dash in the Dallas Times Herald indoor meet. He returned to his Houston home Sunday but was in Eugene, Ore., Monday to receive the Steve Prefontaine Award in honor of his 1984 successes.
