senior track and field Coach Gay-
ril Korobkov as saying he is
"sure that this time the Soviet
Union will field the strongest
women's team in the history of the
Olympic Games."
He pointed to world record hold-
ing sisters Tamara and Irina
Press, and Marina Itkina and El-
vira Ozolina as the leaders. Tam-
ara holds world records in both
the shot put and discus. Her dis-
cus mark of 188-%/2 Sunday was
more than six feet short of her

points. Miss Ozolina got off a
world record throw of 201 feet,
4% inches in the javelin and Miss
Itkina had a time of 53 seconds
flat in the 400 meters.
Tass said Korobkov regards Vik-

triple jump at 54-2, "as the prob-

also expects medal performances
