Arthur B. (Bull) Hancock's 2-year-old full sister of Ridan, MOCCASIN ($2.60), ran the six-furlong, $76,350 Spinaway at Saratoga in 1:11, defeating runner-up Swift Lady by 3� lengths.
MODERN PENTATHLON—Rutgers student PAUL PESTHY, a Hungarian now living in New Brunswick, N.J., won the 1965 national championship at Fort Sam Houston, San Antonio, with a total of 5,072 points. He took firsts in fencing and pistol shooting and was 11th in running, eighth in swimming and fourth in horseback riding.
ROWING—Though the Vesper Boat Club managed to defeat Germany's RATZEBURG ROWING CLUB in a preliminary heat, the Germans took the final of the European championship for eights, finishing six feet in front of the second-place Russians, and leaving the Americans a half length behind in third, barely ahead of a fast-closing Yugoslavian National Crew. Germany's JOCHEN MEISSNER scored the biggest upset of the day when he won the single sculls by a hefty margin over Russia's Anatoli Sass.
SHOOTING—A Pfc. from the U.S. Army Pacific Area Command rifle team, LOUIS F. BEHLING, using an M-14, won the overall prize of the President's Trophy Match in the National Rifle and Pistol Championships with a match record of 150-17V on the Camp Perry, Ohio range. The high civilian award went to VICTOR L. ANDERSON of Yellow Springs, Ohio, who shot 150-02V, while Army 2nd Lieut. MARGARET THOMPSON of Fort Benning, Ga., took the women's trophy with 147-09V. Lieut. DAVID H. MEREDITH, also of Fort Benning, was high scorer in the individual high-power rifle phase of the matches with a 769-79V.
Hiram Bradley, a 28-year-old schoolteacher from Greenville, Ohio, who has been shooting only two years, won the overall trophy at the Grand American trapshoot in Vandalia, Ohio when he broke 959 of 1,000 targets during six days of events. The Grand American handicap and the junior crown went to DAN PAUTLER of Alden, N.Y., who broke 99 of 100 targets at 20 yards, and BUEFORD C. BAILEY of Big Springs, Neb. repeated as all-round champion with 387 of 400 in the major events.
SWIMMING—Two more world records were set by U.S. girl swimmers, this time in an exhibition meet in Monte Carlo, Monaco. MARTHA RANDALL of Wayne, Pa. broke her own 400-meter freestyle mark by 1.2 with a 4:38 clocking, and a 200-meter freestyle relay team consisting of POKEY WATSON, CATHY FERGUSON, MISS RANDALL and TERRI STICKLES lowered the world mark by 3.1 seconds to 1:55.
TRACK & FIELD—At an international meet in Haelsingborg, Sweden, KIPCHOGE KEINO of Kenya lowered Siegfried Herrmann's world record for 3,000 meters by 6.5 seconds to 7:39.5. Three weeks earlier Herrmann, an East German, had broken Michel Jazy's world mark by three seconds.
