Law school at Cornell was put on hold. Pablo Morales wanted a year, an entire year, unhindered, to prepare for the 1988 Olympic Games at Seoul. He had taken off one semester at Stanford to prepare for the 1984 Games in Los Angeles, where he won two silver medals in individual swimming events and one gold on a relay team. Not bad for a first try. But Morales is putting more effort into it this time. That's just the way he is.

The organizing committee for the 1994 Winter Olympics at Lillehammer, Norway, announced Tuesday that medals awarded to athletes will be disk-shaped gray pieces of Norwegian granite, decorated with borders of gold, silver or bronze and including pictographs based on a 4,000-year-old rock carving most experts believe represents an ancient skier.

As of Tuesday night, Pablo Morales was not on the 1988 Olympic swim team. He finished third in the 100-meter butterfly, an event in which he holds the world record, but third place is no place in the Phillips 66/U.S. Swimming Long Course National Championships--which doubles as the Olympic trials in an Olympic year. Matt Biondi won the 100-meter butterfly. Morales' teammate, Jay Mortenson, was second. So Biondi and Mortenson will swim the event for the United States next month in Seoul.

Two Oxnard brothers were recovering Monday after being stabbed repeatedly in an incident that neighbors and witnesses say involved 10 to 15 gang members. Oracio Morales, 30, and his brother, Pablo, 19, were stabbed Sunday night during a scuffle in the 1900 block of Colonia Road, police said. A hospital spokeswoman said Oracio Morales was in fair condition Monday in the intensive care unit at St. John's Regional Medical Center.

The silence, ever so brief, yet as loud as any noise he could imagine, was paralyzing and familiar to Pablo Morales. Eight years ago, Morales reached the wall of the Olympic swimming pool in Los Angeles and was engulfed by a similar void. It takes only a second or two for a swimming scoreboard to calculate its hundredths and thousandths of seconds and to illuminate them in cold finality. In 1984, the silence was broken only by a small cheer. "The German contingent," Morales said.

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.
