NoteThe 4th meeting between Irish Universities, represented by Trinity and Queen's, and the Atalanta selection took place in College Park, Trinity College. Despite interruptions by rain, the meeting was completed to schedule. The outstanding performance was that of Roderic Coote (TCD) who equalled the Irish native record for 120 yards hurdles of 15.4 sec held by Theo D. Phelan of UCD. Some controversy arose when R.G. Eccles (Edinburgh University) was called 'no jump' at 5ft 8 in the high jump competition on the grounds that his head was below his shoulder and thus he was guilty of diving. While perturbed and angry that his style was questioned, he continued in the event to win at 5ft 10 3/4 in [1.80 m]. The most discussed finish occurred in the mile when David O'Neill of Trinity was given the decision on the tape from John Muir of Glasgow University. At the final bend O'Neill had little hope of catching Muir who slowed down to a virtual walk to be caught at the finishing line, O'Neill getting the judges' nod which did not receive unanimous approval. Len Horan (TCD) putt the shot 46 ft 10 in [14.28 m] for a College Park record and took a double win in the discus with 123 ft [37.49 m]. George Craigie (TCD) won the 'hundred' and 220 yards for a sprint double. J.A.M. Robertson (Atalanta) took a double in the quarter-mile and half-mile for the third double of the meeting. Tom Maguire of Trinity College was the starter.
