    Background: BUDAPEST, HUNGARY

    The 14th European Indoor Athletic Championships, hosted by Hungary ended on March 6 with four new best performance records. East German and Soviet competitors were the indoor record breakers at the budapest meeting. Bettine Jahn opened the Eastern bloc assault on world times when she shattered the 60 metre hurdles indoor best, flying home in seven-point-75 seconds to clip point-02 seconds form the previous mark. Shortly afterwards her compatriot, Olympic 400 metre champion, Marita Koch, demolished her own 200 metre best time when she spreadeagled the field in 22-point-39 seconds.Thomas Munklet, the Olympic 110 metres hurdles champion made it three in a row for East Germany when he raced over the 600 metres hurdles in seven-point-48 seconds, to better the previous mark by point-02 seconds. The Soviet Union's Tamara Bykova produce the best women's high jumping history when she cleared tow-point-03 metres. This was point 03 of a metre higher than the previous world indoor best set by Colleen Rienstra of the United States in Ottawa in February (1983). The jump also improved the world outdoor record of two-point-02 metres set by West Germany's Ulrich Mayrfarth ast year, but because it took place indoors, Tamara Bykova's leap will not be recognised as a world record.
