Sandra Myers knew the song; they used to play it for her in the early 1980s, back when she was a top-notch American hurdler, back when she was a record-holder. She heard "The Star Spangled Banner" a lot in those days. But as Myers stood on the victory platform in Seville last March and listened to the U.S. anthem played for another runner, something caught in her throat. "Every now and then there's a little twinge," she said. It has been almost four years since Myers traded in her U.S.

The Commonwealth of Independent States also earned eight silver medals and seven bronzes.

A long-standing women's track and field record at Northridge could fall Sunday when junior Frances Santin runs in the 400-meter low hurdles in the Mt. San Antonio College Relays in Walnut. Santin ranks second on the all-time Northridge list with a 56.67 clocking, but the Taft High graduate appears capable of challenging the school record of 56.40 set by Sandra Myers in 1980. Santin won the 400 hurdles in 57.

In an episode that the Spanish press is calling the first scandal of the Games, Sandra Myers, a Kansas native who attended Cal State Northridge and UCLA but now competes in track and field for Spain, moved out of the athletes' village in tears this week after her husband, who also is her coach, was told that he could not continue to live there. Before she left, she engaged in a heated exchange with the president of the Spanish track and field federation, Jose Maria Odriozola.

Darcy Arreola of Cal State Northridge exorcised several demons from past races by winning the women's 1,500 meters in the NCAA Division I track and field championships at Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore., on Saturday. Arreola had finished a disappointing seventh in the 1,500 in The Athletics Congress meet in 1989 and '90 after the early pace had lagged and she was left behind in a kicker's race.

Michael Johnson of the United States dominated the 200 meters Tuesday night at track and field's World Championships as no one has in a major competition since Jesse Owens in 1936, and if he had not been running into a 3.4 meters-per-second head wind, he might have set a world record. His time of 20.

Less than 10 years after it was constructed, Montjuic Stadium stood ready to greet 5,000 athletes to the People's Olympics, an alternative for socialist countries to the 1936 Summer Olympics that would be held later that year in fascist Germany. But on the morning of the opening ceremony, for which 20,000 tickets had been sold, a water polo player from the Spanish national team, Carlos Pardo, arrived at the stadium to find the gates locked.

With the possible exception of Canyon High's football team, there are few high school sports programs in the Valley area with a track record superior to that of the Hart boys' cross-country squad. Under Coach Gene Blankenship, the Indians have finished no worse than fourth in the past seven Southern Section championships, and they are the No. 1-ranked team in The Harrier magazine's national preseason poll.

John Wayne was larger than life. An unabashed conservative. Two-fisted. Macho. He was also a superb craftsman who worked with some of the landmark directors of the 20th century, including John Ford, Howard Hawks, William Wellman and Don Siegel. Though he died in 1979 at age 72, his legacy looms large.
