The management and direction of track and field in the United States for the last 10 years has largely been at the discretion of Ollan Cassell, executive director of The Athletics Congress, the sport's national governing body. Cassell has shepherded track and field through a decade that has been at once tumultuous and immensely profitable. There have been embarrassing drug scandals, but there also have been rewarding television contracts.

An AIDS patient running in the Atlanta Half Marathon on Thursday died of heart failure near the end of the race. Charles Barden, 37, of Stone Mountain was running in the middle of the 5,000-runner pack when he collapsed in the 11th mile of the 13.1-mile race. Atlanta Track Club spokeswoman Julia Emmons said efforts to revive Barden on the sidewalk failed. Barden was not a member of the club, which sponsors the annual Thanksgiving Atlanta Marathon, 26.2 miles, and the Half Marathon.

Ollan Cassell, who has ruled U.S. track and field for 31 years, was denied a contract extension Tuesday night in San Francisco in a vote supporters hope will spur the redevelopment of the sport in this country. The board of directors of USA Track and Field voted, 52-34, against an extension of Cassell's contract as executive director, which expires in March 1998. Cassell, 59, survived a similar no-confidence vote in 1994 and pleaded for a chance to keep his job.
