econd day

110 metre hurdles

Kamerbeek became the second decathlete to drop out.

Javelin throw

In the javelin throw, Yang won another event, moving up to fourth place. Holdorf fared poorly, his lead shrinking to 60 points, but with Walde increasing to 67 points ahead of Aun in third place, a German gold medal was nearly assured and the top pair was looking quite likely. In contrast, Yang was only 23 points behind Aun in an effort to knock the Soviet off the medal platform. Kuznetsov was still only a point behind Yang and Herman was not far from them either.
