Jennifer Capriati pulled out of the Athens Games with a hamstring injury and was replaced by Lisa Raymond, a team spokesman said yesterday.
Capriati, 28, won a gold medal at the 1992 Barcelona Games, but she missed the 1996 and 2000 Olympics. She told Coach Zina Garrison on Sunday she couldn't play in the Olympics because of the injury, which has been bothering Capriati since July.
Raymond is "the highest-ranked player who is in the tournament who wasn't competing in singles," spokesman Randy Walker said. "But now she will be playing singles and doubles with Martina Navratilova."
Raymond, who turned 31 yesterday, is ranked No. 40 by the Women's Tennis Association and has four WTA singles titles.
Kenyan Boxer Fails Test
In the first doping case of the Athens Olympics, a Kenyan boxer was barred from the Games after failing an out-of-competition drug test in the athletes' village.
Bantamweight David Munyasia, 24, tested positive for the banned stimulant cathine, the International Olympic Committee said. All athletes have been subject to random doping tests since the opening of the Olympic Village on July 30.
Bush, Entourage Arrive
Former president George H.W. Bush boarded a luxury yacht yesterday in the northern port of Kavala. The U.S. delegation reportedly includes former first lady Barbara Bush and President Bush's twin daughters, Barbara and Jenna, but Greek police would confirm only the arrival of the former president.
The yacht, owned by the family of Greek billionaire Spyros Latsis, was expected to travel south from Kavala and dock in Athens's Port of Piraeus amid tight security.
Javelin Thrower Denied
A Greek javelin thrower cannot compete with the Palestinian Olympic team because she did not meet the qualifying standard, track and field's world governing board said.
Sofia Sakorafa, a 48-year-old former javelin champion, stirred controversy when she became a Palestinian citizen this year and applied at the last minute for a berth on the Olympic team.
IAAF General Secretary Istvan Gyulai said he informed the Palestinians that Sakorafa's recent throws were well below the minimum standards.
Sakorafa participated in the 1980 Olympics in Moscow for Greece and broke the women's world javelin record at the 1982 European championships.
IOC Member Expelled
An Indonesian member of the IOC was expelled from the organization in connection with corruption charges dating from 10 years ago.
Mohamad "Bob" Hasan, a business partner of former Indonesian strongman Suharto, was sentenced to six years in prison in 2000 for his role in a multimillion-dollar scam involving a forest-mapping project in the early 1990s.
Hasan, an IOC member since 1994, was suspended in May 2001. Previous moves to expel him were postponed pending reviews of his conviction. He is free on parole.
Hasan is the first member kicked out of the IOC since 10 members resigned or were expelled in 1998 and 1999 following the Salt Lake City bid scandal.
Anti-Olympics protesters gathered in central Athens to hold an open-air memorial service for 13 workers killed during round-the-clock construction of venues for the Games.
About 500 demonstrators stood in silence as the names of the workers were read out and olive wreaths placed on 13 crosses erected outside Greece's parliament three days before the start of the Games.
Deaths at construction sites have spurred a small but vocal anti-Olympics movement in Athens, adding to anger over massive security measures and commercialism surrounding the world's biggest sporting event.
