    Background: Tom O'Hara of Chicago's Loyola University climaxed the U.S. National Amateur Athletic Union Track and Field championships at Rutgers Stadium in New Brunswick, New Jersey (eastern U.S.) on Sunday (28 June) by setting an American record in the 1,500 meter run. The 127-pound Irishman clipped more than one second off the American record with a time of 3:38.1 as he beat rival Dyrol Burleson for the first time in seven meetings.

    Mike Larabee, a 30-year-old high school teacher from San Fernando Valley, California, and the father of two girls, won the 400 meter in 46 seconds flat, beating Robbie Brightwell of England by two feet. It was an upset victory.

    An expected, Jerry Siebert, who is studying for a doctorate in physics, won the 800 meters. His best time ever of 1:47.5 was a meet record.

    O'Hara's 1,500-meter race was the fastest in the world this year. Seconds after the finish, Burleson threw his arms around O'Hara.
