    Background: British Olympic sprinter David Jones won the 100 metres event on the first day of a two-day international athletics meeting a Colombes stadium, Paris, June 10. He clocked 10.6 secs. against a strong headwind. French sprinters Delecour was second with Foik second.

    Russia's brilliant high-jump pair, Bolchov and Brummel, competing in France for the first time, both turned in topnotch performances. Valeri Brummel, a silver medallist at the Rome Olympics, cleared 7ft 1 1/2 ins. for an easy win in the high jump.
