Carl Lewis and fellow Olympic gold medalist Joe DeLoach say they will boycott the national outdoor track and field championships because they are disgruntled with The Athletics Congress, the sport's governing body in the United States. "We cannot continue to be put in this position because the TAC is killing track in America," Lewis, a six-time Olympic gold-medal winner, told the Associated Press Thursday in Houston, site of the TAC meet June 15-17. "They are holding back funds . . . and making it very difficult for athletes to compete here," he said.

As sprinter Leroy Burrell settled into the starting blocks for the 200 meter dash at the Mt. San Antonio College Relays on Sunday, he looked to his left. Burrell, a junior at the University of Houston, couldn't help noticing Danny Everett, the Olympic bronze medalist in the 400, who was dropping down to the 200. "I wasn't really focused on beating Danny," Burrell said. "I was focusing on running my race." Burrell ran his race well. Burrell burst out of the blocks, ran a strong curve and maintained his lead in the straightaway.

As fast as they are, it appears as if the world-class sprinters from the Santa Monica Track Club cannot escape misfortune.
