DOHA---Christian Benitez, a soccer star from
Ecuador who led the Mexican league in scoring last
season, died yesterday a day after playing in a game
for his club in Qatar. He was 27.
The Qatari club El Jaish provided no details about
the death but said Benitez did not complain about
his health Sunday. The team is awaiting a medical
El Jaish played Qatar Sports in the Sheik Jassim
Cup, a warmup tournament for the upcoming season.
The team said this was Benitez s first game with his
The game was played in hot and humid conditions
typical of the Persian Gulf this time of year. Qatar
will host the 2022 World Cup and the searing heat
has prompted many in soccer to call for the tour-
nament to be moved to winter.
Benitez, a powerful striker, joined El Jaish after
helping his Mexican club America win the champi-
onship last season.
"He was a player that over the short period he
was here was regarded for his high moral character,"
El Jaish said in a statement.
Benitez also spent a season in England with Birm-
ingham. In Mexico, he played with one of the country s
most popular teams. On its website the team mourned
"one of the most recent America idols, and shares
the sorrow felt by the entire Benitez Betancourt family,
and the sport in Mexico, Ecuador and the world."
BARCELONA---When Michael Phelps walked away
from swimming after the London Olympics, he was
adamant about one thing: His career was over.
Now, it sounds like he s not so sure.
While saying he s never been happier with his life---
and certainly doesn t miss the grind of what it took to
become the most decorated Olympic athlete---Phelps
left the door open to change his mind before the 2016
"I don t know what s going to happen in the future,"
Phelps said Monday. "I don t know what s going to
In Barcelona for the world swimming championships,
Phelps spoke to The Associated Press and other inter-
national media organisations in a series of one-on-one
interviews set up by his sponsor, Speedo. When asked
by the AP, yes or no, whether he ll compete at the next
Olympics, Phelps now says he hasn t planned that far
ahead in his life.
That s a striking change from his comments before
and immediately after the London Games, when he
insisted his retirement was set in stone and it had
always been his goal to quit swimming before he tuned
30.Phelps will be 31 at the time of the opening ceremony
for the Rio Games.
"I don t know. We re in 2013," he said, while adding,
"There s nothing in the works."
There s plenty of time for a comeback. Phelps would
likely want to begin training before the end of the year,
which would allow him to get into peak condition
leading up to the next world championships in 2015,
an important steppingstone for the Olympics.
Phelps certainly isn t training at the moment. He
jammed the small toe of his right foot on the edge of
a sofa while at home in Baltimore, and aggravated the
injury when he played in a golf tournament at Lake
He s wearing a boot cast on his foot while in Barcelona.
After some sightseeing and promotional appearances,
Phelps took in a second night of swimming at the Palau
Sant Jordi before heading back to the US on Tuesday.
He s accompanied by his new girlfriend, Golf Channel

reporter Win McMurry.
Phelps was still seething about the US
loss in the 4x100-meter freestyle relay on
Sunday. The American were edged at the
finish by the French, a repeat of last sum-
mer s Olympics when a team that included
Phelps also settled for silver.
He said the Americans should have gone
with a different lineup, using Jimmy Feigen
in the leadoff spot and Nathan Adrian as
the anchor. Instead, Adrian went first and
Feigen took over for the finish despite being
the least experienced member of the US

Is he coming back?
