Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Tu.ldoy, Auguil 3, 1971 THt IETHBSIDGE HERALD 7 United Stales far ahead in medal Debbie Brill just off world record jump liy nitUCE LEVETT Canndian I'icss Spoils Editor CALI, Colombia (CP) Deb- bie Brill's magic number is i metric one that has stood on Hie books for a decade. The Haney, B.C., girl proved she is close to reaching it while winning a gold medal in the women's high jump at Ihe Pan-Amcrinan Games Monday night. Records did fall bul not Hie world one as the Ill-year-old sci- ence and arts student showed the improvement In her tech- nique that has made her one of the best. In (lie world of jumpers everything is in metres, and the one record she wants most is the world one set in 1901 by a Romanian. "I was so darn was so close to making Debbie said after she twice failed to clear the bar at 1.90 metres. Since there are ,79.37 inches to the metre, that comes to 6 feet inches, just a tiptoe away from the world mark. WENT FOIt MARK Beaming happily, Miss Brill said she went for 1.10 because she was sure she could do it. She had cleared 1.05 metres, or 6-0's, in winning the gold. The magnificent leap set a Games as well as a Canadian open and native record. Lionel Pugh o! Vancouver, head coach of the Canadian trade and field team, said that if Debbie could have reached 1.10, she no doubt would have gone for the world mark of 1.71, or held by lolanda Balas of Romania. Debbie's gold was the fourth won by the women's team and the fifth over-all. The over-all squad won four medals Monday to give Canada a total of 16 for the first three days of the Games. Bronze medals were won by women gymnasts in the team competition, the University of British Columbia crew in Ihe eights and Mike Mercer of To- ronto in the men's phot put. After 41 events, the United States was far ahead in the standing with 33 medals includ- ing 13 gold. Cuba follows with 28 including sii gold, and Canada is third. cnown NOISY Miss Brill triumphed despite considerable noise from Ihe crowd of about and dis- tractions caused by other evenls going on around her. "The distractions didn't really bother me all that much, but when they were starting the men's 400 right next to the high jump pit I asked the officials if they could wait until Uiat was finished before I jumped. They wouldn't let me wait." Debbie, who won a gold medal at the Commonwealth Games last summer in Edin- burgh with a 5-10 leap, has been jumping regularly at six feet and Pugh feels one day she will be doing 6-6. Her technique has become known as the "Brill Bend" and is similar to the "Fosbury Flop" marie famous by Dick Fosbury of the U.S., winner of the gold high jump medal in the 1968 Olympics. Miss Brill soars over the bar backwards and takes the pres- sure of her landing on the back of her neck. Her winning jump here re- moved from the books the Games record of 5-10 set by American Eleanor Montgomery years ago in Winnipeg. In fact, the Americans didn't get a sniff o[ a medal in the women's high jump as Jamai- can girls won tile silver and bronze. TRIES FOR DOUBLE Tonight, another Canadian gold medallist, Stephanie Berto of Vancouver, goes after a sprint double. Winner of the 200 metres Sunday, she easily quali- fied in the 100 Monday night. While the Americans were blanked in the women's high jump, they won the 5.000 metres, decathlon and men's shot put gold med.-ils. Despilc stomach cramps that almost doubled him up, little Steve Prefontaine won the metres by some 'li yards ahead of team-mate Steve S'lageburg. Piefonlaine was clocked in The decathlon gold went to Rick Wanamakcr, a six-foot- ciglit former basketball player who totalled points for the 10 evenls run oil over a two-day span. FIRST SINCE 1964 Joe Tomes of Great Foils won the Country Club invitational golf tournament over the weekend, his firs! since 1964. Tomes bested Ken Price of Lelh- bridge 5-4 in the 78-hole final. Bests field of 144 Tomes tops Price By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer For all intents and purposes the championship flight in Uie 22nd annual Country Club invi- tational golf tournament was decided at the end of the first nine holes of the 18-hole final match. Ken Price fell behind veteran Joe Tomes at the turn at the Country Club Sunday and couldn't overcome the deficit Tomes had built up. Tomes, who makes his home in Great Falls but is a regular Lethbridge tournament visitor, was superb on the front nine and led his young opponent by three holes alter the first round. Said Price, from Lethbridge, after the match, "I didn't play too bad at all he just played better." According to Tomes he fig- ures he has missed maybe three or four invitationals since 1951. After a quick check of the records Sunday it was disclosed the Great Falls shotmaker last won the Invitation in 1964. In capturing the top prize in the three-day tourney that at- tracted somo 144 golfers from various parts of southern Al- berta, B.C. and Montana, Tomes ousted three-time cham- pion Doug Brown in one semi- final match while Price earned a berth in the final by sidelining Jim Freel of Lethbridge. On his way to the title Tomes also bested Lethbridge golfers Gi'eg Hales and Trevor Kenny while Price bested Ed Meidin- ger and Don McKenzie of Pin- Cher Creek. Meidinger is from the host Country Club. Monday's horse race saw Lloyd Kanewischer of Hender- son Lake win out over Meidin- ger after the field of 10 horses had been pared to two. FIRST FLIGHT 1.

Consolctlon John McColl, After a miserable start, Gor- don Stewart of Vancouver ral- lied in the last five events and finished eighth with a total of points. The U.S., as expected, grabbed both golds in the women's all-uround gymnastics event. Little Hoxanne Pierce, 16, led a 1-2-3 sweep for her country in the individual compe- tition and the team defeated Cuba and Canada. Miss Pierce deposed Linda Jo Methany of the U.S., whose five gold medals in Winnipeg made her queen o[ those Games. This lime. Miss Methany, now a veteran of 23 and weakened by operations that took away two o[ her ribs and patched up a broken ankle, was not equal to the task but she put on a magnificent show. She won the silver, beating out Kimber'l.y Chace. The new champion scored 74.05 to 73.25 for Miss Methany and 72.00 for Miss Chace. In the team all-around, the Americans scored 3C3.30, Cuba got HID silver with 351.70 and Canada the bronze with 351.35. The top individual Canadian gymnast was Lise Arsenault of Hudson, Que., who finished fifth. Coach Jacqueline St. John of Ste. Therese, Que., said Canada should have had a silver and blamed the judges for what she said was partiality. "We're in the middle between Cuba and the United S'.ates. Cuba has been scoring us low because they want to beat us any way they can. The U.S1. has been scoring us low so they can advance as many girls as possi- ble into the individual finals."

Miss Brill cleared the bar with room 1o spare to sel a new mark at 6.0% feet but failed when the bar was sel three inchei higher. Played own Norman just too hot CALGARY (CP) "I just tried to play my game." said Moe Norman. And that is what the Gilford, Ont, professional did Saturday to win the Alberta open golf tournament by an easy three strokes. Norman, who seldom seems to line up a shot as he charges around the course with only slight pauses to hit the ball, glistened on the back nine. Starting with the llth hole, he dropped four consecutive bird- ies to pull away from John El- liott of Foil Lauderdale, Fla., who sank three in a row on the front half to tie ior the lead. Norman finished the round in 68 strokes, two under par, and was at 201 for the 54-hole tour- total of nine under par. Elliott, who won the Manitoba Open Iwo weeks ago, shot a 70 and finished second at 204. Nor- man won and Elliott Norman, leading money-win- ner on lie tour with hardly missed a fairway during the match at the par 70, yard Calgary Golf and Country Club course. Unlike most professionals who keep notes on yardages and who spend minutes lining up putts, Norman said: "I never take down yardage. 1 just go by sight. "I read the green while walking up to the ball. I've never got down tn line up a putt in mv life. I've never gone to the other side of the hole." Steve LeCrone of Amarillo, Tex., had been tied for the lead going Into the final round but after a birdie on the first hole he missed greens, landed In bunkers and had putts that would not drop. He finished seven over par on the round at 77 and even for the tournament to tie for I2th place. Ernesto Perez of Tijuana, Mexico, finished third at 205 and John Calabria of Rochester, N.Y., was fourth one ttroie back. More sport on page 8 bridge. Lelhbridi Iqe THIRTEENTH FLIGHT 1.
