Flushed with success from a victory in the courtroom Wednesday, figure skater Tonya Harding predicted that her next one will come on the ice. "Cool. Cool," Harding said upon learning that she apparently will be allowed to represent the United States in the March 20-27 World Championships in Chiba, Japan. "I'm going to win this time."

On the eve of the XVII Winter Olympics, the Tonya Harding affair remained as unsettled as ever. An Oregon circuit judge on Friday became the latest to delay a decision that could affect Harding's participation in the Olympics. Patrick D.

Allen James' strategy in the men's 20-kilometer walk at the U.S. Olympic track and field trials Wednesday night at Tad Gormley Stadium worked beautifully. "My plan was to go out at a good even pace and pick it up at 5K and 10K," said James, who did just that in completing the course in 1 hour 29 minutes 28.0 seconds, leaving more experienced competitors behind. "It just kind of went according to plan.

A panel of figure skating judges pronounced Nancy Kerrigan physically and mentally fit for the Olympics, despite an attack last month that knocked her out of the national championships. "If there were any doubt or any questions about Nancy Kerrigan's skating condition, she answered them for us this afternoon," said Chuck Foster, secretary to the U.S. Olympic Committee and one of the four judges who watched Kerrigan in a closed workout at her practice rink.

Yet to be resolved are the causes of the NBA players' hesitation: Olympic tryouts; giving up a summer to qualify before the actual competition (the U.S.

The legal strategies of Tonya Harding and the U.S. Olympic Committee became clearer Thursday as debate over the figure skater's participation in the Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway, intensified. In more than 90 pages of documents filed Thursday in Clackamas County Circuit Court, Harding's attorneys appear to have modeled their challenge in part on Butch Reynolds' successful 1992 litigation against the International Amateur Athletics Federation.

A member of the U.S. Figure Skating Assn. panel that might ultimately decide Tonya Harding's fate said Friday that individual rights should take precedence over Olympic ideals.

The track and field world waited almost 10 months for the rematch in the long jump between Mike Powell and Carl Lewis, but when it finally occurred Wednesday night in the U.S. Olympic trials, it was like opening a vintage bottle of wine only to discover that it had gone flat.
