A year ago, Tatyana Pozdnyakova won the women's division of the Los Angeles Marathon in 2 hours 29 minutes 40 seconds -- an outstanding time for someone about to turn 48. Pozdnyakova is believed to be the oldest winner, male or female, of any big-city marathon. In addition to prize money, her triumph brought her a measure of fame and focused attention on a fast-growing segment of competitive runners: women 40 and older.

When my friend Nancy Belcher told her son that, after visiting friends in Miami, we were going to sail the watery wilderness of Florida's Everglades National Park, he patted her on the shoulder and gave her an avuncular smile. "You want to take a boat into the Everglades alone? Two women who don't know port from starboard?" Not one to be patronized, especially not by her own child, Nancy marched to the phone and made reservations.

Exercise may be responsible for the inability of some women to become pregnant, says a study published recently pointing out that hormonal irregularities are common among women runners. This may make them temporarily infertile even though they appear to be having normal menstrual cycles, says the study in the New England Journal of Medicine. "A lot of women who think they're normal when they are exercising may not be," says Dr. Gary S. Skrinar, one of the researchers.

On the heels of surprising world-record setting performances by Chinese women runners, women swimmers from China posted stunning times in the National Games of China. Although no world records were set, the depth of Chinese women's swimming was astounding. When the Chinese emerged as an international power with dramatic improvement in the 1990 Asian Games, their prowess was limited to a handful of swimmers, primarily in sprint events.

Reporting from New York - The head of the World Anti-Doping Agency chided the NFL Players Assn. on Thursday for not giving a green light to testing players for human growth hormone. "It seems [the union's objection] is not based on science," WADA chief David Howman said. "You're better [off] to expose yourself to a test than decline it, because the impression you leave is that you have something to hide. " The new NFL labor contract allowed HGH testing as early as this season but only if the players' union approved the tests.

Juli Inkster continued her relentless assault on Old Waverly Golf Club Saturday with aggressive play that left her 18 holes away from winning her first U.S. Women's Open. Inkster shot a five-under-par 67 for a 54-hole Open record score of 15-under 201. The old record of 203 was set by Alison Nicholas two years ago at Pumpkin Ridge in Oregon, and Nicholas was only 10 under after three rounds.

There is plenty of seduction in the idea of a play about Olympic runners--especially women: the dedication, deprivation, interference, will to win, excellence, pain, glamour, euphoria and hyper-reality. British playwright Louise Page was going for the gold with "Golden Girls," which opened Thursday at South Coast Repertory. But all that glitters it is not.

The technology used in marathons is generally of the highest sort. Computerized start/finish systems make results available quickly after a race. Major marathons videotape sections of a race to ensure that runners who claim prizes have run the entire race. Sophisticated course measurement is employed to protect both the integrity of the race and the athletes who may set records. So, consider the curious case of the kaput cannon in last month's New York City Marathon.
