OLYMPIC TRIALS END:

EUGENE, Ore. ') - Jiun
fyun, relaxed and smiling, sat
with his wife, Ann, at a Eugene
restaurant late Sunday night.
The former Kansas star had
climbed back to join the elite of
America's middle distance run-
ners.
After a long, often painful,
comeback the 25-year-old world
recor i-holder in the hile. half
mile and 1,500 meters had
earned a third crack at an
Olympic gold medal.
Ryun, who won a tactical
race at the trials in 3 minutes,
41.5 seconds, set the world
record of 3:33 in 1967. He fin-
isted second the following year
at the Mexico City Olympics to
Kip Keino of Kenya.
I'm really sad for Randy
Matson," Ryun said Sunday
night. "I thought sure he'd
make it."
Matson, the Texas strong
man, finished fourth in the
shot put and went home with
only an alternate's spot on
the U.S. team, Matson, world
record - holder since 1967
when he threw 71 feet, 5'"
inches, has said he will re-
tire.
It will be a mixture of fast -
rising young stars and tested
veterans on the U.S. team.
There's Dwight Stones, the
18-year-old UCLA high jumper.
who cleared 7-3 to earn the na-

; Munich bound

tion's No. 1 berth in -the event
Sunday. And there's 35-year-
old Jay Silvester and 34-year-
old George Young, both Olym-
pic veterans,
Silvester earned a third trip
with a 211-2 first place throw
in the discus.
Young, bronze medal winner
in te Olympic steeplechase
four years ago, earned a shot
at the 5,000 meters this time as
he finished behind Oregon sen-
sation Steve Prefontaine.
Prefontaine, saying he now
has the confidence "to do
whatever anybody else does"
said he felt he could go 10
seconds faster than his 13:
22.8 clocking Sunday night.
Veteran Frank Shorter of the
Florida Track Club won both
the 10,000 meters and the mara-
thon and is heading back to his
birthplace-Munich.
For Willie Davenport, there's
a chance to defend his Olympic
title in the 110-meter high hur-
dles. He ran second behind
Tom Hill, formerly of Arkansas
State. Rod Milburn, the South-
ern University Ia. flash and
world record - holder at 120-
yards,. qualified third.
That trio makes the U.S. a
threat in that event, and the
400-meter dashmen are dan-
gerous as well, Wayne Collett,
Vince Mathews and John
Smith, the world record-holder
at 440 yards, could sweep the
event at the Olympics.
Larry Burton, a Purdue
youngster in his first year of
track, is a member of Amer-
ica's 200-meter team. He joins
Chuck Smith, the winner at 20.4
seconds, after a second-place
20.5 finish that edged Larry
Black, the North Carolina Cen-
tral sprinter, timed in 20.6.
In the 100, there's youth
again with Eddie Hart, Rey
Robinson and Robert Taylor.
All lack international ex-
perience but could score.
With Matson on the sidelines,

the favored U.S. team in the
shot put will consist of George
Woods and Al Feuerbach, his-
tory's only other 70-foot-plus
throwers, and newcomer Brian
Oldfield.
Bob Seagren, set a new
world mark of 18 feet 5'1 in-
ches in the pole vault dur-
ing the trials. He'll resume his
duel with Sweden's KjeH
Isaksson at Munich. Isaksson
had shared the top mark of
1841 ,with .Seagren.
Ralph Mann, the former
Brigham Young hurdler, will be
aiming for the gold medal he
lost to England's David Heme-
ry in 1968 when Hemery
stepped off a 48.1 world mark
in the 400-meter hurdles.
Mike Manley, a 30-year-old
Eugene, Ore., school teacher
and former Marine. is Amer-
ica's No. 1 man in the 3,000-me-
ter steeplechase.
The decathlon contenders will
face the challenge of tall,
strong Jeff Bannister, and di-
minutive Jeff Bennett, whose
respective totals of 8,120 and 8,-
076 points rank them first and
third in the world this year.
Dave Wottle may be the
most talked - about runner in
Munich. The Bowling Green
star wears a white golf hat
when he runs. He finished
second to Ryun in the 1,500
after equalling a world mark
of 1:44.3 in the 800.
Some of the big names, like
Matson, and a number of ath-
letes expected to qualify, won't
be around.
Sprinter Mel Pender. 34,
called it quits after failing to
makes the finals of the 100 here.
Pat Matzdorf, world record-
holder in the high jump, failed
to advance, and Mark Murro.
American record-holder in the
javelin also was a casualty.
Bob Beamon, who won the long
jump at the 1968 Olympics, re-
tired before the trials.
