  • Description

    THE U.S.S.R. AND EAST GERMANY YESTERDAY KEPT UP THEIR MASSIVE SUCCESSES IN THE THIRD DAY OF THE EUROPEAN ATHLETICS CHAMPIONSHIPS IN GREECE. AT THE END OF THE DAY THE EAST GERMANS WERE JUST IN THE LEAD IN THE TABLES WITH SIX GOLD MEDALS, THE SOVIET UNION SECOND WITH FIVE, AND TRAILING WITH TWO GOLD MEDALS IN THIRD PLACE WAS GREAT BRITAIN.

    THERE WERE 11 GOLD MEDALS AT STAKE YESTERDAY, AND A POPULAR SUCCESS FOR THE SOVIET TEAM CAME WITH IGOR TER-OVANESIAN WINNING AN EXCITING DUEL WITH DEFENDING TITLE-HOLDER LYNN DAVIS OF GREAT BRITAIN. DAVIES COLLECTED THE SILVER. FOR TER-OVANESIAN, SHOWING THAT HE STILL HAD SPRING IN HIS AGEING LEGS, IT WAS A COME-BACK OF NOTE, FOR HE WON THE TITLE IN BELGRADE SEVEN YEARS AGO.

    IN THE MEN'S 4-HUNDRED METRES, POLAND CAPTURED HER FIRST GOLD MEDAL OF THE GAMES SO FAR THROUGH JAN WERNER, THE LEAST FANCIED OF POLAND'S THREE FINALISTS.

    THE RUSSIANS PICKED UP ANOTHER GOLD....AN UNEXPECTED ONE....IN THE 4-HUNDRED METRES HURDLES WHEN VYACHESLAV SKOMOROKHOV SPED HOME AHEAD OF BRITONS JOHN SHERWOOD AND ANDY TODD.
