  • Description

    United States athletes on Saturday at Edwards field, Berkeley, California, wiped out memories of last year's Leningrad defeat by winning the two-day track and field meeting against the Soviet Union by a convincing 126-110.

    The triumph was achieved by the American team despite the absence of nine of their top stars now competing in Europe.

    The Soviet Union women's team maintained its supremacy against the U.S. women -- they had lost only of the previous nine meetings against the American girls -- by a comfortable 76-60 points margin.

    This coverage includes both men's and women's events, and there is a public-address commentary over the track races as they happen.
