    Buraas wins men's slalom

     SHIGA KOGEN, Japan (AP) -- In a symbolic changing of the guard, a 22-year-old Norwegian with day-glo orange-red hair won the men's slalom race today, after the great Alberto Tomba abandoned his final Olympics with a sore back.
     With the mountain shaken by a mild earthquake and the Japanese looking on, Hans-Petter Buraas, who looks as if he made a wrong turn at the snowboard venue, triumphed in the last Alpine event of the Nagano Games.
     Buraas was easily the best today in the most technically demanding of all ski races, swerving through the closely positioned gates in a virtual dance on skis.
