    ALTHOUGH SEVERAL WORLD RECORDS HAVE BEEN BROKEN AT THE INTERNATIONAL STUDENT GAMES IN TOKYO, THE 100 METRES DASH FOR WOMEN WAS WON IN THE COMPARATIVELY SLOW TIME OF 11.6 SECONDS. AS EXPECTED BARBARA FARRELL OF THE UNITED STATES ROMPED THROUGH TO VICTORY CHASED HARD BY GABRIELLE MEYER OF FRANCE AND GERLIND BEYRICHEN OF GERMANY.

    THE 100 METRES DASH FOR MEN PROVED AN UPSET. GOUSSOU KONE OF THE IVORY COAST WAS THE SURPRISE WINNER, BEATING THE FAVOURED AMERICAN TOMMIE SMITH INTO SECOND PLACE. ITO GIANI OF ITALY TOOK THE BRONZE MEDAL. KONE'S TIME FOR THE 100 METRES WAS 10.4 SECONDS, WELL OUTSIDE THE STUDENT GAMES' RECORD OF 10.4 SECONDS, WELL OUTSIDE THE STUDENT GAMES' RECORD OF 10.1 SECONDS WHICH WAS SET IN BUDAPEST IN 1965.

    JAPAN UPSET AMERICA'S CLEAN SWEEP IN THE SWIMMING BATHS WHEN YOSUKE ARIMITSU EDGED KEN RUSSEL OF ARIZONA UNIVERSITY INTO SECOND PLACE IN THE MEN'S HIGH DIVING EVENT. RUSSEL, WHO HAD EARLIER WON THE SPRINGBOARD EVENT, SCORED 776.35 POINTS, 21.80 POINT BEHIND ARIMITSU. ANOTHER JAPANESE DIVER, T. OTSUBO, CAME THIRD.

    AMERICAN MIKE BURTON SMASHED HIS OWN LISTED WORLD RECORD OF 16 MINUTES 41.6 SECONDS FOR THE 1,500 METRE FREESTYLE EVENT WITH A TIME OF 16 MINUTES 34.6 SECONDS. NINETEEN-YEAR OLD BURTON SWAM SO FAST THAT HE ALSO SHATTERED THE RATIFIED 800 METRES RECORD ON THE WAY WITH A TIME OF 8 MINUTES 45.5 SECONDS CLIPPING 1.9 SECONDS OFF THE PRESENT MARK HELD BY SEMEN BELITS GELMEN OF THE SOVIET UNION.

    ANOTHER AMERICAN, ANOREN STRENK, CAME SECOND, WITH JAPAN'S KATSUJI ITO, THIRD.
