|Duelling Meets - comparisons of results at Boston and Columbus.
Caution: Use with Care. Boston had one of the finest indoor tracks in the
country at Reggie Lewis Center, a raised and banked Mondo oval. Columbus had an
older flat and uneven surface. Also, competition in individual events, which breeds
faster times, was closer in one venue or the other.|

Too close to call.
Watch Out, Boston -- New York track
man John Moriello "scored" the two meets and says Columbus came surprisingly
close for a first effort. "The Boston folks had better get their act together
soon or they're going to be toast in 2000."
