SPEED SKATING: American Dan Jansen, seemingly on his way to a gold-medal performance in the 1,000 meters, fell just before the final turn.

FIGURE SKATING: Brian Boitano of the United States led Brian Orser of Canada after the two-minute short program. The four-minute long program, which accounts for 50 percent of scores, is Saturday.
LUGE: Steffi Walter, the defending gold medalist, won the women's event, leading a second straight medal sweep by the East Germans, who also swept in Sarajevo. American Bonny Warner finished sixth, the best showing by an American in Olympic history.
HOCKEY: Finland upset previously unbeaten Canada, 3-1, scoring all its goals in the first period. Both teams are tied for second place in Pool A with 2-1 records. Sweden (2-0-1) took over first place in the pool by virtue of its three first-period goals in a 4-2 win over Switzerland (1-2). Also, Jerzy Christ scored a pair of goals to lead Poland (1-1-1) to a 6-2 victory over winless France.
SKI JUMPING: Strong crosswinds prevented the running of the event for the second successive day. The competition on the 90-meter hill at the Canada Olympic Park is now scheduled to take place Wednesday.
ALPINE SKIING: Pam Fletcher, the leading U.S. woman in the downhill, broke her leg in a freak accident, when she collided with a volunteer during a practice run. The event was postponed until today because of high winds at the summit of Mount Allan.
