Jud Logan, a surprise fourth-place finisher in the Olympic hammer throw, tested positive for a steroid and became the first American in 20 years to flunk a drug test at the Games, IOC officials said Wednesday. Prince Alexandre de Merode, chairman of the IOC medical commission, said Clenbuterol, an anabolic steroid licensed in Germany as an anti-asthma drug, was found in Logan's urine sample.

On the first Sunday of March every year, the streets around the Coliseum echo with the strains of the signature song of the L.A. Marathon--Randy Newman's, "I Love L.A." Played in a continuous blare at the start, the song remained for most of the 20,000 runners more a suggestion than declaration. For John Treacy of Ireland and Madina Biktagirova of Belarus--the male and female winners of Sunday's seventh race--the song became an ode to their new favorite town.

Police shot and killed a man who grabbed for an officer's gun Sunday just a few hundred yards from the finish line of the Los Angeles Marathon, only moments after the first of more than 19,000 runners completed the 26.2-mile race, authorities said. The gunfire, which marred what had been a picture-perfect day for the seventh annual competition, erupted at 11:15 a.m. in a crowded "family reunion area" at Exposition Park, where hundreds were waiting for friends and relatives competing in the race.

The recession and the Southland's tourism decline that some attribute to last year's civil unrest apparently haven't affected entries for Sunday's Los Angeles Marathon. Race director Bill Burke said entries haven't declined. "I'm dumbfounded about it," Burke said. "Every major marathon in America is down. Washington D.C., Columbus (Ohio) and San Diego were down this year. I expected us to be down because of the situation here in Los Angeles and the economy.
