WEIGHT LIFTING—Lightweight TONY GARCY, a 25-year-old schoolteacher from York, Pa., set four American records, exceeded three Olympic records and tied a fourth in qualifying for the U.S. Olympic weight-lifting squad at the New York World's Fair. After two days of trials at the World's Fair Pavilion, the selection committee also picked ISAAC BERGER, 27, the 1956 Olympic featherweight champion and two-time Olympian: NORBERT SCHEMANSKY, 40, a three-time Olympic competitor; and GARY CLEVELAND, 22, light heavyweight, to represent the U.S. in the Tokyo Games. The judges, under their option, bypassed Middle Heavyweight Lou Riecke, Middleweight Joe Puleo and Bantamweight Gary Hanson, both divisional winners in the trials, but special trials will be conducted Sept. 6 to fill the three remaining berths on the team. Shot-putter Gary Gubner, beaten by Schemansky in the trials, probably will compete for one of them.
