Below the Harbor Freeway in the homeless encampment known as Dome Village, residents have spent the past days gathering around televisions. They don't want to miss a moment of Joanna Hayes competing in the Athens Olympics. "'People would walk around yelling, 'Joanna is running! Joanna is running!' when she was on television," said Graham Foster, 49. The petite Hayes, 27, is the daughter of Dome Village's founder, homeless activist Ted Hayes.

LONDON - Sally Pearson of Australia unseated Dawn Harper of the U.S. as the 100-meter hurdles gold medalist, but she needed an Olympic-record performance to do it. Pearson got an excellent start and led from the beginning of Tuesday's final at Olympic Stadium, leaving only the other two medals in question. She was timed in 12.35 seconds, with Los Angeles-based Harper close behind in a personal-best 12.37 seconds and American Kellie Wells third at a personal-best 12.48. Lolo Jones was fourth in 12.58 seconds.

LONDON — In the end, the most hyped Olympian was also the most alone. Lolo Jones finished the 100-meter hurdles in a desperate lunge, stood by the finish line staring up at an Olympic Stadium scoreboard that registered a fourth-place finish and then slowly walked away. She didn't stick around to congratulate the two medal-winning Americans, both of whom had questioned her enormous pre-race publicity. She didn't hang out to schmooze with fans who have increasingly questioned her sincerity.

It was a moment she'd long dreamed of, qualifying for the Olympic final in the 100-meter hurdles and doing it in style, with a personal-best time of 12.48 seconds. But before Joanna Hayes celebrated her good fortune, she stopped to help a competitor who'd fallen to the track at the finish line, injured and in pain. Hayes wiped tears from the face of German hurdler Kirsten Bolm and offered encouragement, even though she knew Bolm only slightly. "She's a really nice girl," Hayes said.

Re "A Dometown Girl," Aug. 28: The article about Olympian Joanna Hayes showed a large picture of her father, Ted Hayes, above a much smaller picture of Joanna. The article went on to describe the impact of Joanna's accomplishments on Dome Village people. The article told how her mother was abandoned with four children and supported them as a substitute teacher. That was all you wrote about her mother; everything else was about Ted Hayes. Why would you celebrate a father and picture his pride when it was her mother that held the family together?
