MOGADISHU, Somalia-- Somalia's Olympic athletes are training for the London Games, a day after the national Olympic committee president and another top sports official were killed in a bomb blast.

Distance runner Mohamed Hassan Mohamed, one of five athletes from the violence-stricken country chosen to go to this year's games, tells The Associated Press that it "was utterly a black day for Somali sports" when Olympic committee head Aden Yabarow Wiish and soccer federation president Said Mohamed Nur were killed in an explosion on Wednesday.

But Mohamed and others were back training in Mogadishu on Thursday.

Mohamud Ali, another runner, says it would mean "a lot" to have the country's flag raised at the Olympics.
