    Background: Athletes from the Soviet Union and four other countries, Poland, Bulgaria, Rumania and Hungary, were in Moscow recently to compete in a winter track and field tournament. The two day competition was sponsored by the Soviet newspaper, Izvestia.

    SYNOPSIS: It was held in the indoor Znamensky stadium.

    One of the first events of the tournament was the 100 metres hurdles for women. The Soviet hurdler, Vera Komisova, won the event with a time of 13.7 seconds.

    In the men's 110 metres hurdles none of the other athletes could match the world class of Poland's Jan Pusta. His technique, power and speed gave him the fast winning time of 13.7 seconds.

    The triple jump was won by the Russian, Anatoly Piskulin; with a jump of 16.86 metres (55.2 feet); the world's best this winter.

    The short 60 metre sprint title was taken by Russia's Nikolai Kolesnikov. He is one of their leading sprinters. His time, 6.79 seconds.

    The pole vault was won by the Russian record holder Vladimir Trofimenko. Although he jumped the same height as another competitor, teammate Yuri Prokhorenko, he won because he had fewer failures.

    On the second day of the tournament, the women's 60 metre hurdle title was won by the Russian, Nina Margulina, with a time of 8.36 seconds.

    The men's 60 metre hurdles was narrowly won by another Soviet champion, Victor Myasnikov.

    In the Russian girl Nina Marinenko won the high jump clearing 1.85 metres (6.04 feet).

    In the men's 100 metres sprint the Russian, Vladimir Ignatenko, powered his way to the front to win with a time of 10.6 seconds, symbolising Russia's ??? of the games.
