WOMAN ATHLETE OF YEAR-Beverly Boys, who won both diving gold medals at the British Commonwealth Gomes in Edinburgh last summer, was named Canada's woman athlete of tho year. Beverly Boys tops voting By THE CANADIAN PRESS Beverly Boys, who won both diving gold medals at the British Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh last summer, is Canada's woman athlete of the year for the second con- secutive year. The 19-year-old from Pick- ering, Ont, now living and training in Winnipeg, was an easy winner in the poll con- ducted by The Canadian Press among 165 sports writers and broadcasters across the coun- try. But it was close for second, with skier Betsy Clifford of Ottawa edging high-jumper Debbie Brill of Haney, B.C., who repeated at third.' Points were awarded on a 3-24 basis for first, second and third votes. Miss Boys drew 48 first- place votes, 45 for second and 30 for third for 264 points. Miss Clifford, 17, who skis out of Camp Fortune, Que., won the gold medal in the world championships in giant slalom last February. Shortly after'this year's balloting was completed, she won the women's special slalom at the Criterium de la Premiere Neige World Cup competition at Val d'Isere, France, SCORED 38 FIRSTS She scored 194 points in the voting on 38 first-place bal- lots, 27 for second and 26 for third. Miss Brill, 16, who dives over the bar head-first and backwards, jumped six feet- close to the world record- more times during 1970 than any other woman in the world. It was the performance of Miss Boys in Edinburgh that attracted the voters. She suffered a punctured right eardrum during practice in Montreal in October, 1969. The injury kept her out of the water for three weeks but healed and she won the na- tional indoor championships a month later. She practised hard for Edin- burgh, but once there the ear trouble flared again. The crop-haired, five-foot- one youngster had to have her ear packed, then taped, then covered with waterproof plas- tic material before each dive.
