1C THE PALM BEACH POST FRIDAY, JUNE 19, 1992 s c L ewis rips track officials Claims Trials are held too close to Olympics i Tie Associated Press ! NEW ORLEANS - At the U.S. Odympic Trials for track and field, itj seems as if the sport is on trial as well as the athletes. ; The Trials haven't started, but in courtrooms and at news conferences, some of the United States' tjp stars are criticizing the way the system is run. Carl Lewis became the latest to cHticize American track officials When he said Thursday that the Olympic Trials are being held too close to the start of the Barcelona Olympics. The Trials end June 28, tfce Olympics start July 25. J;, He said there's no reason to run so many heats in the Trials, which begin today. J "Trying to duplicate the Olympics is pretty silly, especially now that most of the athletes have already been to the Olympics or are experienced in international competition," said Lewis, a six-time Ofympic gold medalist. "They need to back off and allow the athletes more rest to prepare." BASKETBALL BARCELONA, Spain The European Olympic qualifying basketball tournament that opens today in Spain will look anything but f5feign to American fans. Olympics Roundup New Jersey Nets guard Drazen Petrovic of Croatia and Indiana Pacers forward Detlef Schrempf of Germany are just two of the five current NBA players taking part, and at least 10 others in the tournament have been drafted by NBA clubs. Other familiar names include Golden State Warriors forward Sarunas Marciulionis (Lithuania), Atlanta Hawks forward Alexander Volkov (Commonwealth of Independent States) and former Phoenix Suns center Georgi Glouchkov (Bulgaria). The reigning world and European champion, Yugoslavia, is unlikely to take part. The Yugoslavs, who feature Los Angeles Lakers center Vlade Divac, former Miami Heat center Milos Babic, and former San Antonio Spurs forward Zarko Pa-spalj, were banned this week by Spanish organizers after the United Nations voted sanctions against the nation for its war with Bosnia-Herzegovina. Olympic organizers say Yugoslavia may have a chance to com- WPB clinches first half with sweep of St. Lucie By MIKE MELTON Special to The Palm Beach Post PORT ST. LUCIE The West Palm Beach Expos clinched the Florida State League East Division first-half title in grand style Thursday night. Mike Daniels hit an eighth-inning grand slam in the second game against the St. Lucie Mets that completed a doubleheader sweep 1-0 and 7-2 at Thomas J. yhite Stadium.
