Steve Cram, one of Britain's top medal hopes for the Olympic Games, injured his right leg in a 1,000-meter race Wednesday night in one of the final tuneup meets at Rieti, Italy. Cram was able to slowly walk off the track and return by car to his hotel. "I believe it is just a small muscle tear," he said. "The tendon was sore before the race, so when I felt a pain on the backstretch, a sort of a tap, I stopped. It should be OK in a couple of days. I hope to be training within two days."
