    Background: KOBLENZ, WEST GERMANY

    US runner Ed Moses recorded his 108th successive victory on August 29 when he ran the fastest time of the year in the men's 400 metres hurdles at Koblenz, West Germany. Moses recorded a time of 47.32 seconds on the Koblenz track where last year he set a world record time of 47.02 seconds. Moses had little trouble in defeating West German runner Harald Schmid, the last man to beat Moses, seven years ago. Moses' time as 0.43 of a second faster than his Olympic winning time. Morocco's Said Aouita tried to set a world record in the 150 meters run at Koblenz. Aouita, the Olympic 5,000 metre champion, was out to beat Britton Steve Ovett's world record time of 3:30.77 in the 1500 meters, but his time of 3:34.10, while good enough to win, was well outside the world mark. Omar Khalifa of Sudan was second with a time of 3:34.59.
