Janie Wagstaff dominated the 200-meter butterfly and the 200 backstroke in the Janet Evans Invitational Friday, serving notice that she is much more than an Olympic backstroker. Wagstaff's emergence as a butterflyer could earn her an extra event in the 1996 Olympic Games now that '92 Olympic butterflyers Summer Sanders, Crissy Ahmann-Leighton and Angie Wester-Krieg are expected to retire.

The race is about to begin. Ron Karnaugh walks out wearing a straw hat. The race is on. His college teammate, Roque Santos, from the Cal days, calls loudly: "Let's go, Big Ron!" The race is almost over. His mom, Jean Karnaugh, who speaks through a voice box, is unable to speak. She is crying. The race is over. His coach, Terry Stoddard, from Mission Viejo, also is fighting to hold it together. He says: "I guess you could call this a different kind of Olympic dream." The unfair kind.

Despite a broken left wrist that limited his training to kicking, Stanford junior Jeff Rouse shattered the American record in the 100-yard backstroke Thursday night at the NCAA Division I Championships at Texas Swim Center. Florida senior Martin Zubero, a citizen of the United States and Spain, also turned in a record-setting 1:44.01 swim in the 200 individual medley, but he was denied an American record because he competes internationally for Spain.

The fastest 50-meter freestyle swimmers in the world last year were Americans Matt Biondi, Tom Jager and Steve Crocker. But only two of them will advance from the Olympic trials, March 1-6 in Indianapolis, to the Olympic Games, starting July 25 in Barcelona, Spain. In response to U.S. swimming dominance, FINA, the world governing body of the sport, decreased the number of entrants allowed each country from three per event to two in 1980. Other international meets followed suit.

Janet Evans and Carlton Bruner used the same quick getaway during their 800-meter freestyle events Thursday in the Janet Evans Invitational swim meet at USC.

Bruner blitzed the men's field with a 59-second opening leg. "I like to go out fast and hold on," he said. From there, they poured it on.
