DOG ASIDE:

The doors to China began to open widely in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s….thanks to the development of televised sports being held all over the world. ABC had their weekly programming of Wide World of Sports….while NBC had theirs known as Sports World….as both networks would send their crews and sportscasters to sports venues all over the planet to cover the world of sports. This track & field competition was the first sporting event televised from The People’s Republic of China….and included many of the top track stars of the period.
