Bo Jackson competes in two sports. So does Rob Stull. The comparison stops there. Jackson's sports are baseball and football, totally unrelated activities. Stull's are modern pentathlon and fencing, which are closely related, since fencing is included in modern pentathlon. Jackson makes more than a million dollars a year. Stull makes a living at horse shows, putting fences back together. But Stull will do something this month that Jackson can't.

But only 11 of the athletes, including Blair Driggs and Lori McNeil of the United States, received 30-month suspensions from the International Modern Pentathlon and Biathlon Union (UIMPB).

Michael Gostigian of Newtown Square, Pa., swam 300 meters in 3:13.94 to finish second in the event and lift the United States to third place in the standings after three events.

It was an offer that the men of the U.S. Olympic modern pentathlon team couldn't refuse. Money. From strippers in Kansas. "Hey, beer companies support the Olympics," said Mike Gostigian of Newtown Square, Pa. "Why not exotic dancers?" The latest donation to the three-man U.S. team came courtesy of the Flamingo Club, a topless bar in Lawrence, Kan.

National pride took a beating when a bunch of United States collegians ran into the two best amateur basketball teams in the world. Now it's time for the United States to roll out its own powerhouse. The U.S. women's basketball team began its Goodwill Games tournament Tuesday night with a 94-70 victory over South Korea, just two weeks after winning its second consecutive world championship. "I thought we were a little tight," U.S. Coach Theresa Grentz said.

World champion Edouard Zenovka of the Commonwealth of Independent States entered Wednesday's riding competition with a comfortable lead, but when his horse took a tumble he lost his hat and the gold medal to Poland's Arkadiusz Skrzypaszek. Zenovka was penalized when he did not retrieve his hat, and he had to settle for the bronze. But it could have been worse for Zenovka--officials could have disqualified him for the hat debacle, but they delayed in ringing the warning bell.

This time last year, the United States had won the silver medal in the Olympic modern pentathlon team competition and finally seemed to draw at least a bit of interest in the relatively obscure sport that includes equestrian, fencing, pistol shooting, swimming and cross-country running. But just when it seemed the modern pentathlon was rising in popularity in this country, the U.S. Army shot it down. Because of a staggering array of controversies over the last 10 years, the Army decided last January it will no longer support the training of athletes.
