After watching the Olympics, where I saw more rhythmic gymnastics than boxing, I was not surprised to read the comments of USA Boxing's Jerry Dusenberry. Boxing was almost completely ignored by NBC, as well it should have been. The only attention boxing received seemed to be about protests, scoring and bribery. No wonder Ali showed up at a basketball game. D.B.

No need now to ask if the shooting sports have any practical application. Near Warsaw recently, coaches from the biathlon teams of Russia and Belarus were driving along a rural road. Their teams had just competed in the World Championships of biathlon, which combines skiing and shooting. Four bandits in a truck appeared, forced the coaches' car off the road and demanded money. The coaches stalled, knowing a bus carrying their athletes was behind them.

The blazing Arizona sun is setting this week on one of the great coaching careers in American Olympic sports, and it's not pretty. In the Olympics, Pat Nappi coached every prominent U.S. boxer from Sugar Ray Leonard and the Spinks brothers to Pernell Whitaker, Mark Breland and Evander Holyfield. But this week in Phoenix, where 24 boxers are gathered for the Olympic team boxoffs, Nappi, 73, is a man scorned.

The U.S. boxing team put together an Olympic Games winning streak of two Sunday, with Eric Griffin and Pepe Reilly winning handily in the tournament's first session. On a day when a crowd of about 1,500 in the Joventut Pavilion included African National Congress leader Nelson Mandela and pro heavyweight boxing champion Evander Holyfield, the U.S. team improved markedly on the first-day performance of the 1988 team.
