Olympic trials nearing close

By The Associated Press
Sprinter Steve Williams, injured last Saturday in
a heat of the 100-meter dash, withdrew from the United
States Olympic track and field trials yesterday in Eu-
gene, Oregon and his chances of competing in the
Olympics appeared dashed again.
The 6-foot-3, 170-pound Williams pulled a ham-
string muscle in the first of two qualifying heats. In a
second heat on the same day, the injury worsened and
Williams stepped off the track.
Williams, who has tied the world record in the 100-
meter dash of 9.9 seconds several times, sustained
similar injuries in 1972 and did not qualify for the
Munich games.
Meanwhile, a number of youngsters have earned
Olympic berths and some competitors from the Munich
Games returned.
THE NEWCOMERS included sprint stars Harvey

Glance, Houston McTear and Steve Riddick, who all
made the team in the 100 on Sunday, and long jumper
Kathy McMillan.
The veterans returning to the Games included shot
putters Al Feuerbach and George Woods and Ameri-
can recordholder Kathy Schmidt in the javelin.
Meanwhile, the final five places in the line-up for
the Olympic basketball competition - three for men's
teams and two for women - are up for grabs at a 12-
day tournament involving 23 teams from 19 coun-
tries starting today.
THE SOVIET UNION, winner of the Gold Medal
in a controversial finish in 1972, joins Cuba, Japan,
Australia and Canada in Group A. The United States,
Italy, Puerto Rico and the United Arab Republic
are in Group B.
In the women's competition, the Soviet Union, Czech-.
oslovakia and Canada have been assured of spots in

the Games.
IN ACTION at the U. S. swimming trials at Long
Beach, Californians Lauri Siering and John Hencken
each scored their second victories Sunday when they
won the 100-meter breaststroke event.
During qualifying, Paul Hartloff of Santa Barbara,
Calif., a recent 18-year-old high school graduate, swam
an American record 15:17.2 in the 1,5000 meters. Fav-
ored Bobby Hackett of New Rochelle, N.Y., posted
the second best time, 15:18.31, for the metric mile.
The process of picking the divers to represent the
United States in the Olympic games at Montreal
begins today at the University of Tennessee.
By the end of the week, six female and six male
divers will have been chosen for the three-meter
springboard and 10-meter platform dives.
The three women springboard divers will be chosen
in the finals tomorrow.
