Notes on Barcelona, boxing and De La Hoya:

• Oscar came to prominence at age 17, when he beat another American — Ivan Robinson — for the 125-pound gold at the Goodwill Games in Seattle.

• De La Hoya won the 132-pound gold in Barcelona by defeating Germany's Marco Rudolph. A tougher fight was an 11-10 win over Korea's Hong Sung-Sik in the semis.

• Eric Griffin was upset in a protested match and failed to medal at 106. Chris Byrd (silver) and Tim Austin (bronze) joined Oscar as U.S. medalists.
