China's Li Hurong beat her own world mark for the triple jump today, but because of a tail wind it won't go into the record books, officials said. Li leaped 46 feet, 9 inches, bettering her mark by 3 1/2 inches, but was aided by gusts of close to six m.p.h. Any wind more than 4.5 m.p.h. disqualifies a performance from being recognized as a record. The Chinese star competed at the Mikio Oda Memorial Track and Field meet in Hiroshima. Her jump placed her ahead of American Sheila Hudson (45-11 1/2)
