Blaine Wilson's right shoulder hasn't completely healed from surgery 11 months ago. To make matters worse, he strained a muscle in his left shoulder a few days ago. So, Wilson is in just about perfect shape for his run at an unprecedented fourth straight all-around title at the U.S. Gymnastics Championships that begin Wednesday. "If you're healthy you're not a gymnast, that's the way we look at it," said Wilson, who has a history of winning titles while recuperating from injuries.

Pepsico said Monday that it had agreed to sell its Wilson Sporting Goods unit to Wesray Capital, a privately held investment banking firm. Terms weren't disclosed, although Pepsico said the sale would "have no material effect" on its financial results. Pepsico had said in February that it was considering the sale of Wilson as part of a restructuring plan aimed at allowing the company to concentrate on its largest operations--soft drinks, snack foods and restaurants.
