It was a dumb race. These guys could have been arrested for loitering. Guys going to the electric chair moved faster than the Olympians ran their last mile Saturday night. The best milers in the world looked like a bunch of guys waiting for a bus. They handed the race to the Spaniard, Fermin Cacho Ruiz, to the hysteria of the crowd--to say nothing of its considerable surprise. They turned the first lap in 1:02.

Jan Zelezny of Czechoslovakia regained the world javelin record with a throw of 310 feet 10 inches at the Bislett Games Grand Prix track and field meet Saturday at Oslo. Zelezny, who set a world record of 294-2 at Oslo two years ago, broke the record in the sixth and last round. Zelezny, competing for only the third time this year because of a back injury, bettered the previous record of 300-1, set by Steve Backley of Britain on Jan. 25 at Auckland, New Zealand.

Officials of the Fiesta Bowl have announced the creation of a world-class mile race expected to be viewed by the largest live audience for an event of that distance. The Fiesta Bowl Mile will be held Dec. 31 in downtown Phoenix before the Fiesta Bowl Parade. The race will be run down a portion of the parade route down Central Avenue. Fiesta Bowl officials estimate that half of the projected 500,000 people that will see the parade will also view the race.
