Adam Saathoff and Koby Holland qualified for the Athens Olympics in running target after taking the top two spots at the U.S. shooting trials yesterday in Fort Benning, Ga.
Saathoff, of Hereford, Ariz., won with a 1,913. Holland, from Dillon, Mont., led the men for the first two days but lost ground during the third day of competition to finish second with a 1,910.3.
In men's air pistol, Brian Zins took a four-point lead over Jason Turner. Darryl Szarenski is third after an off performance put him three points away from making the Olympic team.
After the second day of men's three-position rifle, Matt Emmons still has the lead.
* MEN'S VOLLEYBALL: Australia and the Netherlands won the final spots for the Athens Olympics during separate qualifying tournaments.
In Tokyo, the Australians lost to Iran, 25-19, 26-24, 25-23, and tied China for third place but advanced to the 12-team field in Athens because of a better points ratio. In Madrid, the Netherlands, the 1996 Olympic champion, beat Spain to finish the four-nation event 3-0.
* CYCLING: Theo Bos of the Netherlands beat defending champion Laurent Gane of France in straight races to win the best-of-three sprint final at the world track cycling championships in Melbourne, Australia.
"When I woke up today I could barely walk, it was so painful," said Bos, who survived two crashes during his quarterfinal races Friday. "But I had a good warmup and felt confident."
* PENTATHLON: With a dramatic final sprint, Andriejus Zadneprovskis of Lithuania won his second individual world modern pentathlon title in Moscow.
Zadneprovskis collected 5,608 points and Lee Choon Huan of South Korea was second with 5,596. Libor Capalini of the Czech Republic earned 5,580 points and qualified for the Athens Olympics.
