 This was in today's sports section (Oct. 20, 1991)

 Allen tied Scott's record of three straight wins in this event.
 Allen finished the 140 mile event in 8 hours, 18 minutes, 35 seconds.

 Paula Newby Fraser won the women's event in 9 hrs. 7 min. 52 secs.
 Erin Baker, the defending champ, was second in 9 hrs. 23 min. 37 secs.

 Greg Welch of Australia got second in the men's event, 6 minutes back.
 Jeff Devlin, of Penn., was third in 8:27:54.

 Allen finished 10th in the swim, but had a fast transition and was third
to start the bike leg.

 Allen and Welch ran together until the 12.5 mile point of the marathon,
when Welch cramped.

 I'm sure we'll all be seing this on ABC sometime soon. Hopefully we will
get some reports from participants too.
