By the Associated Press
SAKE PLACID, N.Y. - Eric Heiden
on his third gold medal in the XIII
Winter Olympics yesterday, and was
poised for an unprecedented fourth
men's gold in speed skating.
He won the 1,000-meter speed skating
event yesterday in the Olympic record
time of one minute, 15.18 seconds, 1
seconds ahead of silver medalist
Gaetan Boucher of Canada.
The next event, Thursday's 1,500, is
e of Heiden's best. He also is entered
Saturday's 10,000.
ASSESSING HIS chances for winning
five golds, Heiden said, "I'd like to, but
still there are two races to go. The
10,000 meters will be the last race and
there are a lot of skaters I haven't
skated big competitions against.
Hopefully, I'll be mentally prepared. I
think physically things are going pretty
Heiden is one of only a few skaters
ho is racing in all five distances.
"It's getting harder and harder to get
prepared for each race," he said.
"Today I didn't think I was as psyched
up as I should have been."
AFTER WINNING the world cham-
pionship for four straight years, Heiden
has become so dominant that others
wish he would hurry up and go on to
other things, as he has said he would do
after the Olympics.

third gold medal

"That's what we're waiting for," said
Norwegian Frode Roenning, one of the
world's top skaters, who finished in a
tie for the bronze medal yesterday with
Vladimir Lobanov of the Soviet Union.
"There's no excitement to racing now.
The medals are delivered before the
races are run."
Boucher, 21, took the silver medal in
1:16.68. Roenning, 20, and Lobanov, 26,
finished in 1:16.91.
Boucher isn't so eager for Heiden to
go away. "I'd like to see him keep
skating a few years," he said. "Per-
sonally, I want him to keep skating
because I'd like to beat him."
HEIDEN PACED himself well
yesterday but faltered briefly on his
last trip down the back-stretch, kicking
himself in the heel. His record time
broke the mark of 1:19.32 set by
American Peter Mueller in 1976.
Heiden and Boucher skated in the fir-
st pair in a light wind. The temperature
was about 30 degrees. Later, skaters
had to contend with some strong gusts.
.Heiden's medals mark only the third
time since 1952 that the U.S. has won as
many as three gold medals in the Win-
ter Games in individual events.
Stenmark captures gold
Ingemar Stenmark of Sweden cap-
tured the gold medal yesterday in the
men's giant slalom ski race at the 1980

Winter Olympics with a total time that
< was three quarters of a second faster
than his closest competitor.
Stenmark was third after Monday's
first heat - 32 hundredths of a second
behind Andreas Wenzel of Lichten-
HOWEVER, Stenmark added a time
of one minute, 20.25 seconds to his time
Monday of 1:20.49 for a total of 2:40.74.
Wenzel, who led after the first heat with
1:20.17, sped over the 1,354 meter cour-
se on his second run in 1:21.32 for a total
of 2:41.49 and the silver medal.
Hans Enn of Austria captured the
bronze medal with a total time of
2:42.51. He had runs of 1:20.31 and
German wins biathlon
Frank Ulrich of East Germany won
the 10-kilometer biathlon gold medal at
the XIII Winter Olympic Games
yesterday in 32 minutes, 10.69 seconds.
Vladimir Aliken and Anatoli Aljabiev
of the Soviet Union placed second and
third for silver and bronze medals.
Their times were 32:53.10 and 33:09.16,
ULRICH WON a silver medal in the
20-kilometer biathlon at these Games.
Klaus Siebert of East Germany
placed fourth.
Davenport stays on
Willie Davenport said yesterday he
was "damned mad" that he should be
singled out as the center of a controver-
sy swirling around the U.S. Olympic
four-man bobsled team.
Gary Sheffield, head coach of the
American bobsledders, issued atone-
page statement after a hurried meeting
to say that the U.S. No. 1 sled, on which
Davenport rides the No. 3 position,
would be unchanged.
SHEFFIELD HAD said Monday at a
news conference that he wanted to
restructure the leading sled by
replacing two members, but that the
driver, Bob Hickey, had insisted the
lineup remain intact.
It was intimated after the Monday
news conference, at which the No. 1
sledders failed to attend, that there
were racial difficulties involved on the
Davenport is black, one of the first
blacks to compete in the Winter Games.
He is in a position to become the second
man in history to win gold medals in
both the Summer and Winter Games.
He was a gold medalist in the 110-meter
high hurdles at Mexico City in 1968, and
captured a bonze in 1976 atMontreal.
DAVENPORT SAID he was shaken
when he picked up the morning papers
to find himself pictured as the center of
the controversy.
"It made me damned mad - and I
am still mad," he said. "We have too
many problems on our minds without
all of this."

Redmen edge Temple

PHILADELPHIA - Curtis Ridding
scored 17 points, including a field goal
the first 17 seconds of an overtime
'riod, to trigger seventh-ranked St.
John's to a 63-56 victory over Temple
yesterday in the first game of a college
basketball doubleheader.
St. John's, in boosting its record to 22-
3, tied the game with 4:06 remaining in
regulation time on a field goal by 6-foot-
7 Wayne McCoy.
Temple had a chance to regain the
lead with 2:01 on the clock when McCoy
fouled out, but Mark Davis missed both
ee throw attempts.
st. John's then held the ball until, with
three seconds remaining, Redding
missed a shot from the corner and St.
John's failed to get down two rebound
attempts, sending the game into over-

National Basketball Association vic-

The victory was the Knicks' eighth in

their last 11 games. The Trail Blazers
suffered their fifth defeat in six games.
After the Trail Blazers closed the
margin to three points, Richardson lof-
ted a three-point shot and the Knicks
then followed with seven straight points
to gain an 11-point lead, 92-81.
No Martin for A's
NEW YORK - Billy Martin
remained yesterday a $125,000-a-year
non-person with the New York
Yankees, and the Oakland A's
remained without a manager for the
1980 season.
Charles O. Finley, owner of the A's, is
said to be interested in Martin, among
others, to take over the reins of his
team - but George Steinbrenner,
owner of the Yankees, reportedly is
balking at the prospect of paying a
healthy chunk of Martin's salary for the
next two years if he signs with the A's.
Martin was fired by Steinbrenner last
October after getting into a fight with a
marshmallow salesman.
Coach Lenny Wilkens of the Seattle
Supersonics was charged with 1,655
fouls during his playing days.
