She looked so fresh Sunday after nearly pulling off an unprecedented triple at the U.S. track and field championships, Regina Jacobs might have entered a road race just for fun had there been one nearby. Jacobs, who won the women's 1,500 meters Friday with a strong stretch drive, passed Hazel Clark with 80 meters left Sunday to win her first U.S. 800 title in 2 minutes .43 seconds, the fastest time by a U.S. woman this year.

Wednesday night's all-comers meet at Birmingham High seemed like a stroll in the park for Regina Jacobs. A very fast stroll. Jacobs, this year's The Athletics Congress champion in the 1,500 meters, placed fifth in the open 800 meters with a personal best of 2 minutes, eighth-tenths of a second. Jacobs, of the Los Angeles Track Club, ran a 59.8 over the first 400 meters, picked up the tempo in the third 200 with a 28.7 and slowed to a 32.3 in the final 200 for a 2:00.8.

The 1981 graduate of the Argyll Episcopal Academy for Girls--now Campbell Hall High in North Hollywood--is a warm, gregarious person who smiles frequently and likes to crack jokes.

Regina Jacobs radiates optimism. She always seems to be smiling, laughing or joking around, a real happy-go-lucky lady. Except when you mention The Athletics Congress track championships of 1986. Then she becomes very serious. Her brown eyes lose their sparkle and the beaming smile disappears. Considered one of the favorites in the 1,500 meters, Jacobs finished last in the 12-woman field, running a dismal 4:23.52, 12 seconds off her personal best at the time (4:11.
