  • Track star's situation not clear-cut

    It's the birth defect people don't talk about. A baby is born not completely male or female. The old term was hermaphrodite, then intersex. Now it's called "disorders of sexual development." Sometimes the person with the problem doesn't even know it and finds out in an all too public way. That's been the painful plight of a few female athletes through history. And apparently that's the situation for South African track star Caster Semenya.

  • Portsmouth's Merritt claims gold in relay

    BERLIN -- LaShawn Merritt, the reigning Olympic 400-meter champion from Portsmouth, Va., raised the metallic blue baton high in the air as he crossed the finish line. Sanya Richards went with a simple flicking motion. Both fine ways to celebrate a gold medal. Bottom line? Both still had the stick in their hands at the finish. The Americans got the baton around the track in the finals yesterday, leading to a 1,600-meter relay sweep to close out the world championships.

  • Bolt, Jamaica win 400-meter relay

    BERLIN - Usain Bolt's third gold medal of the world championships was met with a sense of disappointment yesterday because the Jamaican 400-meter relay team failed to set a world record. With former world-record holder Asafa Powell taking the baton from Bolt for the anchor leg, Jamaica won in 37.31 seconds, a championship record but slower than the world record mark of 37.10 they set in Beijing last year.

  • Bolt showing no signs of slowing down

    Usain Bolt startled the world again. The Jamaican sprinting great captured the 200-meter gold medal in 19.19 seconds yesterday, yet another world record.

  • Jamaican seizes 100 hurdles

    Jamaica's Brigitte Foster-Hylton (right) celebrates with compatriot Delloreen Ennis-London after they claimed medals in the final of the women's 100-meter hurdles. Foster-Hylton won gold and Ennis-London bronze. BERLIN -- First the sprints, now the hurdles. The Jamaicans are taking over that, too, from the Americans. Brigitte Foster-Hylton captured the 100-meter hurdles yesterday, giving the island nation its first gold in the event at the world championships. Delloreen Ennis-London won the bronze for Jamaica.

  • American Richards finally claims first major title

    BERLIN - Sanya Richards shook off years of disappointment yesterday with her first major title in the 400 meters, pumping her fist after crossing the line at the world championships. Her main rival, Olympic champion Christine Ohuruogu of Britain, was back in fifth. And for Shericka Williams of Jamaica, it was silver again. "I finally got it right," Richards said. "It means the world to me."

  • Pole vaulter continues her career descent

    Olympic champion Yelena Isinbayeva could not explain it. The woman who ruled the pole vault for five years failed to clear height yesterday and was out of the world championships. Kenenisa Bekele and the Jamaican sprinters, however, were as predictable as ever. Bekele extended his domination in the 10,000 meters with a fourth straight world title and Shelly-Ann Fraser added one to her Olympic gold in the 100.

  • Bolt shatters world mark in 100

    BERLIN - Usain Bolt saved the celebration for after the finish line this time and showed that, yes, he can keep breaking that world record. He obliterated it, in fact. Bolt ran 100 meters in 9.58 seconds yesterday at the world championships, turning his showdown against Tyson Gay into a rout and putting to rest the questions that went unanswered last time he set the record - at his showboating Olympic run of 9.69 seconds.

  • Bolt, Gay to meet in 100-meter showdown

    BERLIN -- Smiling and joking, Usain Bolt cruised into the semifinals of the 100 meters of the world championships. Sprinting in earnest to test his groin, Tyson Gay did the same, setting up the prospect of a showdown in today's final. Bolt, the three-time Olympic champion from Jamaica, and Gay, the three-time world champion from the United States, proved they are in shape for the most anticipated race of the year.

  • Bolt, Gay set for 100-meter showdown

    BERLIN - Usain Bolt vs. Tyson Gay. Flash vs. "boring." Triple Olympic champion vs. triple world champion. This 100-meter showdown could be the defining moment of the World Track and Field Championships, which open today with the 100 heats. "I'm itching to run," Bolt said Thursday. "I can't wait." Bolt seemed as relaxed and confident as he was last year when he set three world records on his way to Olympic titles in the 100, 200 and sprint relays in Beijing. By then, Gay's season was ruined by injury.

  • Task force urges track overhaul

    They asked for a candid review of their problems and they got it -- 69 pages of unflattering details, uncomfortable advice and a laundry list of possible solutions for the U.S. track team. A task force commissioned by USA Track and Field released its report yesterday, lashing out at the American relay system, recommending streamlining Olympic trials and calling for a more stringent policy for dopers who want to be reinstated.

  • Running stars here for meet
