Two-time Olympic champion Edwin Moses ran a year's best in the men's 400-meter hurdles at an international meet in Lausanne, Switzerland, extending his unbeaten streak in the finals of the event to 102.

Moses left most of the field behind after about a third of the race and finished unchallenged in 47.38 seconds. Only Meleje Dedjemel of the Ivory Coast and Henri Amike of Nigeria came close to keeping pace, but they were still more than 1.5 seconds behind in second and third place.

In other events, Said Aouita of Morocco won the mile 3:51.86 and Philippe Collet of France took the pole at 19-5. Only Soviet world record-holder Sergei Bubka has vaulted higher outdoors.
