U.S leads Soviets in track meet
By The Associated Press
,'OLLEGE PARK, Maryland - Steve
Riddick upset Valeriy Borzov and an-
chored a 400-meter relay team to vic-
tory yesterday as the United States
men's track team took a 59-46 lead over
the Soviet Union's best in the 14th re-
newal of the dual track meet.
Riddick, the 6-foot-3 former Norfolk
State flash who failed to make the final
of the Olympics' 100, got a great start
and held off the 1972 Olympic champion.
Riddick was clocked in 10.15 seconds
with Borzov second at 10.20 and Ameri-
can Harvey Glance third at 10.23.
THE TWO-DAY meet was marred on
the humid, overcast day by the non-
appearance of at least eight women per-
formers who had made the U.S. Olym-
pic team. The Soviet women led the
United States 53-20 after the first day
R'i ddilck beats Borzov
and the cumulative total showed the
Soviets ahead 99-79 after 17 events.
Nine meet records fell, six of them to
Rossian athletes, including a 4:00.3 time
by Patyana Kazankina in the women's
1,500-meter run. Miss Kazankinda, who
won both the 800 and 1,500 in the Olym-
pics, ran the fastest ''metric mile" ever
run on American soil.
Dave Roberts, the Gainsville, Fla.,
medical student who lost his battle to the
rain at Montreal, captured the pole vault
with a meet record leap of 18-0%, but he
missed three tries at a world record
height of 18-9.
ROBERTS WAS favored to win the
vault in Montreal, but a rain storm late
in the day caused him to miss andallow
Poland's Tadeusz Slusarski to win.
Meet records also fell in the men's
and women's 400-meter relays. The So-
viet women were clocked in 42.93 sec-
onds, one of the fastest times ever re-
corded, and the American men-Charles
Foster, Glance, Millard Hampton and
Riddick-were timed in 38.56"
Mike Durkin, who was only third in
the U.S. Olympic trials, captured the
men's 1,500 in 3:38.4-also a meet mark
-and Craig Virgin, who had suffered
from the flu during the Olympics, re-
covered to win the 10,000 in 28:35.2.
THE AMERICAN women's team 'was
weakened by home-sickness, said Mar-
tha Watson, the long jumper who was
pressed into service as a sprinter.
"The girls just wanted to get home,"
said the 29-year-old Miss Watson, refer-
ring to those who failed to show.
"They've been away from home since
July 1 and were homesick."
This meet has been scored on a 5-3-2-1
basis since it was initiated in 1958 and
the United States has won the cumula-
tive scoring on just two occasions in the
13 previous competitions. The teams tied
Today's final day includes the men's
long jump, men's 5,000, men's high jump
and discuss and the men's 200, all of
which the United States is expected to
win. If the meet is close the United
States' 1,600-meter relay team, which
won the gold medal in Montreal, is heav-
ily favored to win the final event.
