“THE MATCH” in Minsk, which pitted the U.S. against Europe, made for some significant changes in the best marks ever recorded in such competition. No fewer than 8 events saw new standards set: men’s 200, HJ (tie), JT; women’s steeple, HJ, PV, HT & JT.

For a meet to be considered for international dual meet record, at least one of the teams must be a single nation, not an area of some sort. The records list:
