His inability to reach the Seoul Olympics last year has fueled the determination of American cyclist Mark Gorski, who won a gold medal in the match sprints at the Los Angeles Games in 1984. "Not making the (Olympic) team was very, very disappointing, but I came out of it very motivated," Gorski said Thursday night at the Olympic Velodrome at Cal State Dominguez Hills, where he won a first-round heat in the Sundance Grand Prix of Cycling. "I was so close." Gorski, 29, lost at the U.S. Olympic trials to Ken Carpenter of La Mesa, Calif.

France's Jeannie Longo and Italy's Claudio Golinelli each gained a second gold medal Saturday in the World Cycling Championships. Longo won the women's 30-kilometer points race after Golinelli took the men's professional keirin title. The keirin, unique to professional racing, is a high-speed event, with the cyclists vying for position behind a motorized pacer. Then, with 1 1/2 laps to go, the pacer goes off the track, and it's a race to the finish for the final 500 meters.

For two days, Janie Eickhoff, 19, carried the United States in the NEC World Cycling Invitational. On the final day of competition Sunday at the Olympic Velodrome at Cal State Dominguez Hills, America's veterans provided enough support to win the eight-team tournament and a top prize of $25,000. Eickhoff, a 5-foot-2 and 125 pounder from Los Alamitos, won two more events Sunday, a tempo race and an elimination, and accounted for nearly half of the U.S. total of 107 points.

Danny Fercho and Kevin Winthrow each scored four goals for the West, but a goal by Brian Parath with 10 seconds to play gave the South a 17-16 victory in team handball Friday at the Convention Center. Fercho, a 23-year-old winger from Camarillo, gave the West a 1-0 lead 2 minutes 35 seconds into the game. He scored later to tie the match, 3-3, and his third goal of the first half stopped a streak of three consecutive South goals, pulling the West within 6-4.
