Roger Black, one of the most influential designers in print media, spent the 1970s and '80s shaping the looks of such magazines as Esquire, Rolling Stone and Newsweek. But the 1990s delivered something previous generations of designers only dreamed about: a new medium that offers a new creative landscape. The Internet, Black says, is the first medium "that puts designers in the driver's seat."

The streak is over for Sergei Bubka. After going seven years without losing in a major competition, the Soviet pole vaulter finished sixth Thursday at the European Track and Field Championships. Bubka, the world record-holder at 19 feet 10 1/2 and 1988 Olympic, world and European champion, made only two of nine vaults as teammate Rodion Gataulin won the event at 19-2 1/4. Soviet Grigory Yegorov was second. Austria's Hermann Fehringer third. Bubka cleared only 18-8 1/4.

China's Tony Li figured he set an Asian record in the 110-meter high hurdles Sunday, only to see it get lost in the wind a few minutes later. Li won the Nike-UC Irvine Invitational race in a wind-aided 13.35 seconds, two-hundreths of a second faster than his Asian mark set in 1991 in Japan. But it didn't count as a record because Li was backed by a wind of 3.3 meters per second, 1.3 over the allowable.

Ben Johnson, insisting he has no animosity toward Carl Lewis, challenged the Olympic and three-time world champion Thursday to prove who is really the world's fastest human. "I have nothing to prove," said Johnson, who feels he has not received the recognition he deserves despite beating Lewis four straight times and dominating the men's 100 meters for the two past years. "I've proved it several times before. Why prove it again here?" the Canadian said. "But I'm ready for him."

The U.S. champion in the women's 800 meters, Delisa Walton Floyd of Houston, became the first athlete to test positive for a banned substance during track and field's World Championships.

Under strict sanctions passed last week by the IAAF, she has been suspended for four years. Previously, the offense would have resulted in a two-year suspension.
