  • Description

    Three Canadian records were set at last Friday's (14 March) international track meet between Canada and West Germany at the Montreal Forum.

    In the pole-vaulting event, Bruce Simpson of Canada cleared 17 feet, 4 3/4 inches to establish a Canadian record and surpass by an inch his mark at the Munich Olympics when he finished fifth. Gunther Lohre of West Germany placed second at 17 feet, 2 3/4 inches.

    In the women's high jump, Debbie Brill of the University of Victoria -- who at the end of the meet was voted its outstanding female participant -- set another Canadian record at six feet, 1 3/4 inches, breaking the old mark by three quarters of an inch.

    And in the women's 800 metres race, Yvonne Saunders of Canada set the third record by winning with a time of two minutes, 7:32 seconds.

    Over-all, the Canadian athletes won out over their West German visitors by 107 points to 105.
