|Transcript||Dupree-Russian 880-Meter Race |
SIU students will be able to see Jim Dupree run the 800-meters for the U.S. against Russia Sunday at 4 pm. by turning to the ABC network's "Wide World of Sports" television program.
Dupree is representing the
U.S. against Russia in the fourth straight year of international track competition between the two countries.
The 800-meter event is slated to be run Sunday so students can see it performed live. Saturday's events will be taped and re-run during the lull between events Sunday.
Dupree has been in Palo Alto, Calif., training for the meet since winning the race against the Poles three weeks ago at the University of Chicago campus. It was the first time that Poland and the U.S. competed against each other in an international track meet.
The U.S. and Russia have met for the past three years with the U.S. easily winning the men's division but losing the women's section of the track meet.
Sports Illustrated figures the U. S. to win the men's division again this year with ease and also figures the U.S. women will come closer to winning than in any of the previous meetings,
In all the previous meets the winner of the meet was determined by the combined men's and women's score thus enabling Russia to win the previous three meets. This year from all indications promises to be a different story.
