Clay falters at end of heptathlon for silver
Hawaii's Bryan Clay placed second in the heptathlon yesterday at the World Indoor Track Championships in Moscow.
Clay won two of four events Saturday -- the 60-meter dash and high jump -- to take a 38-point lead going into the final three events yesterday.
But Germany's Andre Nicklaus overtook the lead for the gold yesterday. He won by five points, 6,192 to 6,187.
Clay still led by 28 points going into the final event, the 1,000-meter run, which Nicklaus won to wrap up the title.
"I'm very, very disappointed with my performance here," said Clay, a Castle High graduate and 2004 Summer Olympics decathlon silver medalist.
Nakajima captures Hawaii stroke-play title
Japan's Toru Nakajima shot a 2-under 70 yesterday to capture the Hawaii State Amateur Stroke-Play Championship at Pearl Country Club.
Nakajima finished with a three-round total of 7-under 209 to win by five strokes over Hawaii's Brandan Kop, who had a final-round 2-over 74.
Tadd Fujikawa was another two shots back at even-par 216 for third place.
