A British track and field athlete and a judo competitor tested positive for drugs in their first test, the British Olympic Committee said today. Olympics spokeswoman Carolyn Searle said their names would not be released until all testing and hearing procedures had been completed. The final decision of the International Olympic Committee might not be known until later today. However, British Independent Television News reported that one of the athletes was 156-pound (71-kilogram)

A story in some editions Friday misidentified the court that ordered an inquiry to determine whether New Jersey public school students have been harmed by cuts to state education funding. The state Supreme Court ordered the fact-finding hearing. A story Thursday on the arraignment of Kenneth L. Patterson in the disappearance and presumed death of Diane Corado wrongly stated where Corado's vehicle was found. The 2004 Pontiac Aztek was found in Camden on Dec. 19. An obituary Wednesday for George Harris, a U.S. judo Olympian who died Jan. 7, wrongly described the requirement of judo training in the Strategic Air Command in the 1950s.

It makes no difference if Brandon Grady swims above or below the surface of the warm, heavily chlorinated water of the indoor pool at the Variety Club Campus. He sees the same thing. Darkness. But that has little to do with his ability to swim, said Grady, 16, who is blind. "I'd say I'm above average," he said, dripping wet and a little out of breath after the 100-foot backstroke. His self-evaluation was slightly more modest than that of his brother, Ben, who was with him here over the weekend for the 10th Northeast-Davidow Regional Games, hosted by the Pennsylvania Association for Blind Athletes (PABA)

The Keystone Games are for the people of Pennsylvania, those who lead normal lives and who participate in sports chiefly because they enjoy it, not because they are in pursuit of medals or world records. Here are short profiles of four Northeast-area athletes who will travel to Scranton and Wilkes-Barre this week to compete in the Games. Each summer for the last seven years, Jack Agger has competed in the Keystone Games in judo. Most summers, Agger has come home to Bustleton with nothing to show for his efforts.

For all the attention Michelle Wie got at the U.S. Open qualifier at Canoe Brook last week, it turned out that another, even younger Hawaiian made it to Winged Foot. He is Tadd Fujikawa, 15, a 5-foot-1, 135-pound high school sophomore from Honolulu who is the youngest player to make it to the Open since World War II. When Wie decided to play the sectional in New Jersey, it left the door open for Fujikawa to claim the one spot up for grabs at the sectional in Hawaii.

EDITH BOSCH of the Netherlands won a bronze medal in the 70-kg division of women's judo last Wednesday, but she's gaining her place in 2012 Olympic lore for what she did Monday night as a spectator. Bosch just happened to be standing near Ashley Gill-Webb, who was arrested for throwing a bottle onto the track moments before the start of the men's 100-meter final. Enraged by what she saw, the 32-year-old Bosch called stadium security but not before she delivered a little Olympic justice of her own. "Een dronken gast voor mij gooit flesje op de baan!

Nathaniel Kleinman, 81, a former U.S. amateur wrestling champion, died Friday at Warminster General Hospital of pneumonia. "He was as strong as iron," said one of his daughters, Marilyn Schiff. At 6 feet tall and 240 pounds in his prime, Mr. Kleinman easily supported his moniker, "Big Nat. " After becoming the top U.S. wrestler in his weight class in 1936, he joined the U.S. Coast Guard and trained fighters in judo and hand-to-hand combat as part of a unit that included boxer Jack Dempsey.

Inside the Ice-A-Rama, ice hockey players skated fast and furiously, punishing each other with bone-jarring body checks. Next to the skating complex at Coal Street park in Wilkes-Barre, softball pitchers stood unsmilingly on the mound and took aim at the plate with narrow eyes that more resembled those of a gunfighter at high noon. Across town, field hockey players went toe-to-toe and stick-to-stick so hard that one player suffered a two-inch gash in her shin. And she was wearing a shin guard.

Roger Federer said he won't play as often in the next few years and hopes to compete in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. The 31-year-old Federer said he would be more mindful about the tournaments he plays to make sure he can keep playing at a high level. "I have to make sure that I take care of my schedule, of my body, of my mind," he said Thursday before an exhibition match with Brazilian Thomaz Bellucci .

Linda "Pizza" Vidovich not only left her name in West Chester University basketball history but also in the annals of the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference. Vidovich, a senior out of Little Flower, led the PSAC this season in field- goal percentage (57.5) and was ranked in the top 10 in free throws, rebounding and scoring. For the Rams, Vidovich has scored 1,389 career points, the team's third all-time highest, and has pulled down 950 rebounds, a West Chester record.

CHICAGO - Patrick Poulin alternates between sitting and standing in the lobby of Chicago's Briar Street Theatre, nervously flipping back and forth through the pages of his application to join the Blue Man Group alongside dozens of other hopefuls who have come to audition for the theatrical spectacle. "Anything that keeps me performing would be a blessing . . . . If I can be onstage making people laugh or entertained, it would be a dream," said Poulin, 25, who moved to Chicago from Boston to work in the city's comedy scene and theaters.

MARJORIE MARGOLIES re-entered the world of congressional campaigning yesterday with an act of political judo, converting an old weakness to a new strength. Margolies, 70, has seen a career spanning decades often reduced simply to "the vote," a decision in 1993 that cost her the suburban 13th Congressional District seat after just one term. That vote - Margolies switched sides after promising not to raise taxes and then casted the deciding vote to pass President Clinton 's tax-increasing budget - has followed her for 20 years.

Anatoliy Kenis' judo journey has stretched nearly 30 years, over two countries and continents. It has been 17 long years since Kenis, who grew up in Kiev, Ukraine, and now lives in Holland, Bucks County, fell by one point at the 1987 Soviet Union national championships to eventual 1988 Olympic silver medalist Vladimir Shestakov. Now 36 and a United States citizen, Kenis once again finds himself on the brink of national glory, although his country has changed, and so has he. Kenis is one of five contenders for the sole heavyweight berth on the United States Olympic judo team.

David Khakhaleichvili of the Republic of Georgia was favored to win the heavyweight judo competition, just as he had in Barcelona four years ago. But Khakhaleichvili never even got a chance to compete. A comedy of errors made Khakhaleichvili late for his weigh-in, and International Judo Federation officials ordered him to forfeit. "This is the worst thing that has ever happened in my life and I don't know if I want to live anymore," Khakhaleichvili said yesterday through an interpreter.

The 8-year-old girl with the blond ponytail hoists her tiny brunette counterpart over her knee. She seems to slam her onto the gym mat. But her 9-year-old opponent springs back and pushes her to the ground with a crafty sweep of the legs. They walk away as buddies, explaining that their tussle is just part of "the gentle way" - more commonly known as judo. The 8-year-old, Amanda Venezia of Rosemont, and her foe, Julie Perkel of Narberth, are among hundreds of youngsters enrolled for the summer in the Julian Krinsky Martial Arts and Wrestling Camp at the Shipley School.
