Olympic champion Gail Devers pulled out of the 50-meter dash in Saturday's Sunkist track meet at the Sports Arena because new indoor world record-holder Irina Privalova was added to the field, said Al Franken, the event's director. Franken said Devers' representatives, Debra and Wallace Anderson, wanted more money for their runner when they learned Privalova would run. Devers, named 1993 U.S. women's track athlete of the year, won the women's 100-meter dash in the 1992 Olympics at Barcelona.

After her fourth-place finish in the Olympic 100 meters Saturday, U.S. sprinter Gwen Torrence, the prerace favorite from Decatur, Ga., accused three of the eight finalists of using banned, performance-enhancing drugs. "I don't think some of the people ahead of me were clean," she said. "I won't mention any names. Some were ahead of me, and some were behind me." She said she was not referring to gold medalist Gail Devers of Los Angeles, adding: "Oh yeah, I think she was clean. I saw her train.

Andre Cason set a world indoor record of 6.41 seconds for 60 meters Friday, breaking the record of 6.45 he set two weeks ago. Cason's record came five minutes after Jamaica's Merlene Ottey set a world indoor women's record of 6.96 seconds in the 60 at the Jose Maria Cagigal Memorial meet. Cason was last out of the blocks in the final but quickly gained control and pulled away from runner-up Bruny Surin of Canada.

Danny Everett bettered the world indoor 400-meter record for the second time Sunday, and this time it probably will count. Everett was timed in 45.02 seconds at the Stuttgart international track meet in Germany, taking three-hundredths of a second off the 4-year-old record held by Germany's Thomas Schoenlebe. Everett had bettered Schoenlebe's world record two years ago at Stuttgart, but his performance was not recognized because of a lane violation.
