    Tokyo's one-day eight-nation athletics meeting held on September 24 was dominated by the East Germans who won 14 of the 28 events. World record holder Marita Koch of East German won the women's 400 metres in 49.58 seconds. Her compatriot Kerstin Knabe easily out paced the other competitors in the women's 110-metre hurdles in a time of 12.69 seconds. Marlies Goehr another member of the East German team wrapped up the women's 100 metres in 10.97 seconds. Sprinter Carl Lewis of the United States provided some relief from the East German monopoly when he won the men's 100 metres with an impressive run of 10.32 seconds. A world record was broken at the Panhellenic Championships held in Chanea, Greece on September 26. Greek athlete Sofia Sakorafa broke the women's javelin record with a throw of 74.20 metres. Bronze medallist in the European Championships earlier in September Miss Sakorafa added 1.80 metres to the previous record set by Tina Lillak of Finland last July.
