1983: Edwin Moses extends his series of victories
Joan Serrahima Stadium.16th July
Edwin Moses      That year´s meeting audience focused all the attention on Edwin Moses performance. He was one of the top athletes at that time. Between 1977 and 1987 he won consecutively 122 times in 400m Hurdles races, breaking the world record in four of these competitions. There was a great interest in observing Moses in Barcelona, but the race was spoiled by his insulting superiority. He beat with more than one second of advantage and with a discrete mark of 49:53
     There were more international top athletes in the event, but Carol Lewis who was the winner in Long Jump with 6,55m could not make people forget about her brother´s performance, this last one would come to Barcelona a couple of years later. The Polish Zdhislaw Hoffmann who won in the Triple jump with a super score of 17,20m, was one of the most shinning stars.
     Javier Moracho, who had been beaten by Carles Sala the former year in the 110m Hurdles, this time wanted to get even, but unfortunately the wind which was superior to the legal one impeded him from being the certified (with a mark of 13:61).
     In 100m the winner was the North American Emmit King, a rocky sprinter who was the pacemaker for the Spanish athletes. The Bulgarian Khristova, whose best was 66,88m in Discus Throwing, was another shinning star. Carol Lewis
