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.
