(AP) - Bruce Jenner tuned, up for his second Olympic Games Saturday by smashing the world record in the grueling decathlon, scoring 8,538 points in winning the event at the U.S. . Olympic track and field trials at the University of Oregon. Fred Dixon and Fred Samara finished second and third, respectively, grabbing the other two berths in the decathlon for the Montreal Olympics. The 26-year-old Jenner, formerly of Graceland College in Iowa, was not planning to go after his own world mark of 8,524 points for the 10-event, twoday test, but he was advised adter the ninth event that he was within striking distance. All he needed, he was told, was a fast 1.500-meter r u n , so the 6-foot-2, 190-pounder went after it. His time was 4: 16.4. just two seconds off his career best. DIXON, FROM Los Angeles, built up a substantial lead in second place and also made the team with his 8,265. Samara, of the New York Athletic Club, and three others were within two points of each other when the 1,500 began, but Samara recorded a time of 4:28.5 for 7,980 points to take the third spot on the U.S. team, ahead of Roger George, formerly of Fresno State, who scored a lifetime best of 7,930. Jenner's previous world mark was set on this same track last year, but points were awarded on the basis of hand timing. The record for automatic timing was 8,454, set by Nicolay Avilov of the Soviet Union in winning the 1972 Olympics. Jenner did not run fast enough in the 1,500 to better that mark, but he gets a second crack at the Soviet champion in Montreal. Jenner, on the basis of electronic timing, scored 8,444 points to fall 10 points short of Avilov's record. Jenner ran the opening event of the second day, the hurdles, n 14.57, and remained in third place, the position he held after Friday's opening five events.

(API- An incredible series of dives, two of them adjudged perfect, gave 16-year-old Greg Louganis the right Saturday to compete for two gold medals at the Olympic Games in Montreal next month. Joining Louganis, from El Cajon, Calif., as the United States' competitors on the 10- meter diving platform in Canada will be Kent V'osler of Eaton, Ohio and Tim Moore of Cincinnati. The judges gave Louganis, a Samoan who was adopted when he was eight months old, perfect 10-point scores on a backward dive with pike position and a one and one-half somersault with pike. "It feels great to be a double first-place winner," said Louganis, who already had won a Olympic team berth on the three- meter springboard. "1 don't think there is any doubt that Greg is the finest diver in the world for his age," said Tom Gompf, Miami, coach-manager of the team. Louganis scored 610.41 points with Vosler getting 600.10 and Moore 583.89. Â·" ? Trailing them were Air Force Capt.
