Curt Fraser, who led Orlando to the International Hockey League finals twice in the last four years, will be the first coach of the expansion Atlanta Thrashers, the Associated Press learned. A source close to the team, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Fraser was chosen from a short list that included former Buffalo coach Ted Nolan and ex-Edmonton coach Ron Low. The Thrashers called a news conference for today. The selection of the 41-year-old Fraser was not a surprise.

Erica Blasberg, a 25-year-old Californian whose LPGA career did not match her collegiate success, died Sunday in Nevada. Henderson, Nev., police spokesman Keith Paul said Monday that authorities were investigating her death, but would not elaborate or say whether foul play was involved. Blasberg turned pro in 2004. Her only LPGA Tour event this year was two weeks ago in Mexico and tied for 44th. According to her website, she was a two-time all-American while at Arizona, 2003 NCAA freshman of the year, and the 2003 Pac-10 player of the year.

American sprinters who were stripped of their 2000 Olympics relay medals because teammate Marion Jones was doping won an appeal Friday to have them restored. The Court of Arbitration for Sport ruled in favor of the women, who had appealed the International Olympic Committee's decision to disqualify them from the Sydney Games. The court said the IOC and International Association of Athletics Federations rules in 2000 did not allow entire teams to be disqualified because of doping by one athlete.

Now in the homestretch of a track-and-field career that spans 17 seasons, Carlette Guidry, 31, is firmly convinced she will find glorious achievement in the Olympic Games this year - and maybe even a world record. Guidry already has gotten past a knee injury that forced her out of the long jump a decade ago. She has rebounded from a divorce and the bad rap that dogged her collegiate career - that the 10-time NCAA champion couldn't come through on the national level. She endured a nickname evolution, from "Ms. Turbo" to "Old Lady," with a smile.

No one is immune from this epidemic. In this, the Olympic year of the positive doping test, everyone is under suspicion. Even Gail Devers, one of the great American Olympians, was asked a drug-related question after a hamstring injury forced her to pull up short during the semifinals of the 100-meter hurdles last night. "I can pee right now if you want," Devers said. "I don't think there's any place for that question. You shouldn't infer what's true about one person is also true about another person.

World champion Inger Miller officially withdrew from the women's 200 meters today because the left hamstring injury that forced her out of the 100 last week has not healed. Miller still hopes to run in the 400-meter relay this weekend, U.S. Track and Field spokeswoman Jill Geer said. Miller was replaced in the 200 by Torri Edwards, who was fourth in that event at the U.S. trials. Edwards also replaced Miller in the 100. The other two Americans in the first-round heats of the 200 set for tomorrow are Marion Jones and Nanceen Perry.

Speed, speed and more speed captivated a sun-splashed, ecstatic crowd of 45,203 at Franklin Field yesterday, as sprinters working at high velocity graced the 106th Penn Relays with one world-record performance and others that were simply awesome. The final day of competition also witnessed three impressive victories and a collegiate performance by the sprinters of Texas Christian, history's first Penn Relays triumphs for Arkansas and South Carolina women, and another thrilling anchor leg by the incomparable Michael Johnson.

As far as the Franklin Field crowd of 45,203 was concerned, yesterday marked the beginning of the 2000 Olympic season for the best sprinters in the United States, plenty of reason to hoot and holler and applaud and take rolls and rolls of photographs. Nearly all the attention yesterday was lavished on the superstars: Michael Johnson, Marion Jones and Maurice Greene. The members of track's Big Three did not disappoint, particularly Jones. Jones, whose goal is to win five gold medals at the Sydney Olympics in September, anchored a 4x200-meter relay team that established a women's world record of 1 minute, 27.46 seconds, breaking the mark of 1:28.

A lightning-fast track and jumping surface, a sellout crowd, and athletes focused on great achievement created a record rampage yesterday at the 72d Texas Relays. Five meet records fell before the afternoon competition was two hours old, and by the time it wound up, with a delighted crowd of 20,000 cheering its approval, the Relays record book was badly in need of editing. Leading the way was the Texas women's team, which won the NCAA indoor championship only a month ago. With three record-breaking relay victories at the new Mike A. Myers Stadium, the Longhorns obviously have yet to rest on their laurels.

Well at least one athlete lived up to the billing. While Michael Johnson and Maurice Greene both pulled up lame in their much-anticipated 200-meter showdown, Marion Jones did everything she said she would at the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials and set herself up to make history at the Sydney Olympics. After previously winning the 100 and long jump, Jones ended her trials yesterday by again holding off rival and world champion Inger Miller to win the 200 in 21.94 seconds - the fastest time in the world this year.
