Sheila Hudson, U.S. record-holder in the women's triple jump, sprinted toward the pit at Cal's Edwards Stadium. She took off on her left foot and, ultimately, landed more than 40-feet away. It looked like a perfect jump. But Kenny Harrison, observing nearby, detected flaws. "Sheila, you took off too soon," Harrison said as he analyzed her jump. Harrison critiqued Hudson's two other jumps before she took a break. Then it was Harrison's turn.

China's Li Hurong beat her own world mark for the triple jump today, but because of a tail wind it won't go into the record books, officials said. Li leaped 46 feet, 9 inches, bettering her mark by 3 1/2 inches, but was aided by gusts of close to six m.p.h. Any wind more than 4.5 m.p.h. disqualifies a performance from being recognized as a record. The Chinese star competed at the Mikio Oda Memorial Track and Field meet in Hiroshima. Her jump placed her ahead of American Sheila Hudson (45-11 1/2)

The Razorbacks' seven team victories tied them for the all-time indoor lead with Texas El Paso.

Throw another shrimp on the barbie, mate? Not when U.S. men's 400-meter hurdles champion Angelo Taylor is sitting at a training table in Sydney this September. "No more seafood," said Taylor, who was waylaid by food poisoning two weeks ago, requiring antibiotics and a full week away from the track, not the recommended method for preparing oneself for competition at the U.S. Olympic track and field trials. Crab legs were the culprits. "A bad batch," Taylor said.
