An East German women's relay team set a world's best time in the 400-meter freestyle relay, clocking 3 minutes 38.77 seconds in the European Cup swimming meet at Monte Carlo, Monaco.

The time was set in a 25-meter pool and does not count for an official world record. The previous best in a 25-meter pool was 3:41.74 set by another East German team at Indianapolis in January 1983.

The official world record in a 50-meter pool is 3:40.57 set at the World Championships at Spain in 1986 by another East German team.
