Record by a Hare

First-rate sprinters like Peter Radford are rare in Britain. So, to get the competition he needs, Peter practices against a mechanical rabbit at the dog track near his home town of Walsall. He proved the idea sound recently when he ran 220 yards around a turn in 20.5 seconds, shaving .1 second off the world record held by Andy Stanfield and Ray Norton.
