By at least one measurement, Mighty Duck Coach Ron Wilson, who has guided the U.S. team to a 3-0 record in the World Cup of Hockey, is uniquely qualified to coach the 1998 U.S. Olympic hockey team. "If you get a job because you beat the Russians, I'm three times better than anyone else at the moment," Wilson joked. The World Cup is considered a rehearsal for the 1998 Nagano Games, which for the first time will showcase NHL stars playing for their homelands.

But that could change, at least for a while, when Japan and South Korea co-host the monthlong World Cup soccer championships starting May 31.

Democrat David N. Dinkins became New York City's first black mayor by defeating Republican Rudolph W. Giuliani on Tuesday, while Democrat L. Douglas Wilder, a grandson of slaves, claimed the Virginia governorship in a close contest with Republican J. Marshall Coleman.
