Jason Gardener of Britain tied his own five-year-old European record in the 60 meters, running 6.46 seconds at the Karlsruhe indoors athletics meet. Haile Gebrselassie, the two-time Olympic champion in the 10,000, also turned in one of the year's best times, racing through the 3,000 in 7:29.34 yesterday.
