FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) _ Katrin Krabbe is five months pregnant, and the former world champion sprinter said she has no plans to resume her career when her drug-related ban ends in August.
''I said that if I got pregnant again I would choose the baby,'' Krabbe was quoted in the weekly magazine Tango.
Krabbe, 25, had a miscarriage in March.
She left her longtime boyfriend Torsten Krentz, a canoeist, one year ago and began a relationship with her lawyer, Michael Zimmermann. The couple married recently.
The 1991 world champion at 100 and 200 meters drew a two-year suspension for using the banned substance Clenbuterol, an anabolic stimulant.
''I made one single mistake - I took a medicine without prescription,'' Krabbe was quoted as telling the magazine.
At the time, Krabbe admitted taking the drug but said she didn't know it was prohibited.
She now runs a sporting goods store in her hometown of Neubrandenburg.
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) - If the Dallas Cowboys make it to the Super Bowl again, they'll see some of their alumni playing a few days before them.
Drew Pearson, Too Tall Ed Jones and Danny White are among the retired Cowboys who have agreed to play in the first Sears NFL Legends game on Wednesday night of Super Bowl week.
The oldtimers will play a six-man flag football game in the Miami Beach Convention Center on an arena-style field of 60 yards by 30 yards.
Each team will have a 40-man roster.
The game will benefit the Miami Project To Cure
ATLANTA (AP) - Fred Goldsmith, who coached Duke's once-struggling football to an 8-3 record in his first year, was selected on Wednesday to receive the Bobby Dodd National Coach of the Year Award.
Goldsmith left Rice last year to take over at Duke. The Blue Devils had their best season since 1989, when they won the Atlantic Coast Conference championship, and are headed to the Hall of Fame Bowl.
The award, named for the former Georgia Tech coach, has been presented annually since 1976 ''in recognition of a higher and more noble aspect of college coaching: a belief that the game of football should be kept in perspective of college life in general.''
It includes a $5,000 scholarship, which will go to Duke's general fund.
LONDON (AP) - Pete Sampras and Arantxa Sanchez Vicario, who both won two Grand Slam titles this year, were designated the 1994 world champions by the International Tennis Federation on Wednesday.
Sampras, who won the honor for the second year in a row, captured the Australian Open and Wimbledon. Sanchez Vicario won the French and U.S. Opens.
Sampras won 10 other events while Sanchez Vicario won six on the WTA Tour.
MILAN, Italy (AP) - Italian skier Alberto Tomba has a badly bruised rib after a fall during warmups, but is expected to start Sunday's World Cup race - a giant slalom at Val d'Isere.
The three-time Olympic champion, who captured his second consecutive World Cup slalom victory at Sestriere Monday night, underwent medical exams Wednesday.
The Italian Ski Federation said doctors determined Tomba had bruised a rib one hour before the Sestriere race, the first World Cup event run under floodlights.
Tomba said he was hurt when he skidded during the warmup.
HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) - Rob Moore was presented a check for $15,000 from NFL Properties for him to use for the Rob Moore Books and Ball Camp.
The New York Jets receiver, having his best season of his five-year career, began the camp three years ago. The camp stresses to high school athletes the importance of carrying books as much as carrying a ball.
Moore will receive the check before Sunday's game against San Diego. Jets president Steve Gutman also will present a grant for $10,000 to the National Hispanic Scholarship Fund before the game.
