For The Record

COMPLETED The Toronto Waterfront Marathon in a time of 2:59:10,
72-year-old Ed Whitlock, who became the oldest person to break
the three-hour mark in a marathon. "It's a kind of cheap version
of Roger Bannister's four-minute mile," said Whitlock, a retired
engineer from Milton, Ont. "I feel pretty awful right now." He
didn't look too great, either. Whitlock was covered with cuts and
bruises from a fall he took three days before Sunday's race while
walking to the store. "I tripped over nothing," he said. "I can't
believe the amount of damage I did. I didn't even have a dog to

DELIVERED By Trailblazers guard Damon Stoudamire, his first
public comments since the July 3 incident in which he was
stopped at a Tucson airport after allegedly trying to carry
marijuana through a metal detector--in a package of tinfoil.
Responding to questions from the Portland Oregonian, Stoudamire,
who pleaded not guilty to two misdemeanor charges, said, "Are you
asking if I'm an idiot? We can sit here and use all kinds of
terminology for what everybody might think about me and that
situation, but to be honest, maybe I was at a point where I
wasn't thinking clearly. It was one of those situations.... I
know I'm not an idiot, I know I'm not dumb. I'd like to think of
myself as a smart guy."

DIED Of lung cancer, Bill Cayton, 85, a former co-manager of Mike
Tyson. Under the tutelage of trainer Cus D'Amato and his
management team of Cayton and Jimmy Jacobs, Tyson rose to fame,
keeping his anger in check and reeling off 27 victories in his
first 20 months as a pro. But D'Amato died in '85, Jacobs passed
away in '88 and Don King seduced Tyson into his camp. In June
1991, after Tyson sued to break his contract with Cayton, the
manager told SI that King had "poisoned and destroyed what could
have been one of the greatest fighters of all time." In addition
to managing boxers--his other clients included Wilfred
Benitez--Cayton compiled a library of fight films dating back to
the Jack Johnson era. He controlled the exclusive rights until he
sold the collection to Disney in 1998; many of the bouts are now
screened on ESPN Classic.

DIED Of esophageal cancer, Robert Kardashian, 59, a member of
O.J. Simpson's dream team of lawyers. In the days following the
deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman in June 1994,
Simpson stayed with Kardashian, and it was from his house that
Simpson embarked on his infamous low-speed White Bronco chase. A
year after the trial at which the Hall of Fame running back was
found not guilty of killing his ex-wife and Goldman, Kardashian
admitted he doubted the verdict. "The blood evidence is the
biggest thorn in my side," he said. "I struggle with the blood

CONVERTED A 62-yard extra point, by David Rosenbaum, a senior
kicker for Wilson High in Washington, D.C. In last Friday's 41-0
win over Spingarn, Rosenbaum returned a kickoff 69 yards for a
touchdown. Wilson was then hit with three 15-yard penalties for
celebrating, which were assessed on the extra point, backing the
line of scrimmage to the Spingarn 45. Rosenbaum, who will attend
Virginia next year on a soccer scholarship, calmly drilled the
kick. "I saw it as a chip shot," he said. "I have hit longer ones
in practice."
