Ben Johnson was stripped Tuesday of his record-setting victory in the 100-meter dash after testing positive for steroids, and the Olympic gold medal was awarded to American Carl Lewis. The news blackened what had been the brightest moment of the Seoul Olympics and revived Lewis' bid for an unprecedented second sweep of four golds: the 100 and 200-meter dashes, the long jump and the 400-meter relay. He won the long jump Monday.

Switzerland's Sandra Gasser, the third-place finisher in the women's 1,500-meter race in the World Track and Field Championships, had her medal taken away Tuesday after she tested positive for steriods. Gasser was barred from two years of competition, including the 1988 Olympic Games, by the International Amateur Athletic Federation, the world governing body for track and field. Meanwhile, Swiss sports officials quickly rallied to her defense.

Simone LeVant had only modest success as a collegiate diver but her impact on college sports may be felt for a long time to come. LeVant, a recent Stanford University graduate, challenged the NCAA drug testing policies during her senior season.
