  • Description

    AT THE FRENCH NATIONAL ATHLETICS CHAMPIONSHIPS IN PARIS YESTERDAY (JULY 26), MICHEL JAZY JUST FAILED TO BREAK HIS EUROPEAN RECORD IN THE FIFTEEN-HUNDRED METRES.

    JAZY, THE HOLDER OF THREE WORLD MIDDLE-DISTANCE RECORDS, WON THE FIFTEEN-HUNDRED METRES EVEN IN THREE MINUTES FORTY-ONE-POINT-FIVE SECONDS.

    THIS WAS THREE-POINT-SEVEN SECONDS OUTSIDE HIS EUROPEAN RECORD.

    IN THE FOUR-HUNDRED METRES HURDLES, JEAN JACQUES BEHM BROKE THE FRENCH RECORD WITH A RUN OF FIFTY-POINT-EIGHT SECONDS.

    BEHM, A 22-YEAR-OLD STUDENT FROM LYON, WAS THE ONLY RECORD BREAKER OF THE TWO-DAY ATHLETICS MEETING.

    SPORTING CORRESPONDENTS PUT THIS DOWN TO THE FACT THAT MOST ATHLETES HAD NOT REACHED PEAK IN THEIR TRAINING FOR THE COMING OLYMPIC GAMES IN TOKYO.

    THE WOMEN'S EIGHT-HUNDRED METRES EVENT WAS WON BY MISS DUPUREUR, FROM LILLE, IN TWO-MINUTES-FOUR-AND-TWO-TENTH SECONDS.
