Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 8, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta February 1'72 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 11 Budding star of the future our Miss Kreiner? Canadian skier came ever so close By DRUCE LKVEIT Canadian Press Sports Editor SAPPORO, Japan (CP) Switzerland has a new ski queen today, double gold medal win- ner Marie Therese Nadig, and Canada perhaps a budding one in Laurie Kreiner of Timmins, Onl. Both are jusl 17. Marie Therese, green-eyed end apple-cheeked, replaced Canada's Nancy Greene as the women's Olympic giant slalom champion, winning the race in a blinding snowstorm. Laurie, a five-foot-five 1.10- pounder, finished fourth. She missed a bronze medal by 13- lOOths of a second. Only one other Canadian had ever done now the wife ol Canadian coach Al Raine, who won her gold medal four years ago in the giant slalom and a silver in the slalom at Greiwble, France. Wearing a four-leaf clover Tor luck, Miss Nadig burst down the serpentine metre course on Mount Tcine and flawlessly skirted its 51 gales in one min- ulc 29.90 seconds to again beat out Anncinarie Proell of Austria as she had done in the opening downhill race Saturday. Wiltrud Drcxel of Austria won the bronze. Marie Thcrese is only the sec- ond woman to win two Olympic gold medals in Alpine skiing. The first double winner was An- drea Mead Lawrence of the United Stales, who look the sla- lom and giant slalom in the 1352 Games. BEST CANADIAN The snowstorm broke during the runs of the top-seeded girls. But Miss Kreiner. in the second heat, had clearing weather for her test. Her performance was by far Urn best ra far by Cana- dian skiers. Miss Nadig, starting 10th. said the visibility was especially poor b the steep part of the course. Nevertheless, she won by a margin of more than a full second. Miss Proell was the second entry to go down in the snow- storm and she posted a time of Beaten by the flick of en eyelash by Miss Nadig in the downhill, the Austrian World Cup leader turned her back to the course today when the Swiss champion came down.

Drown dismissed reports thai Clemenle was demanding for this year. He said the rumor had come from a friend of Clemente's. Ellis, JB-9 last year, was the starting pitcher in last season's all-star game. His 19 victories were the most for a Pirale pitcher since Vernon Law won 20 in I860. The right-handed Ellis won 13 straight during one stretch in 1971. Oliver led the. club in doubles last season, hit .282 with 14 home runs and 64 RBIs.

The reporter bowed to the clerk, then to the assistant clerk. The assistant clerk bowed to the clerk. He bowed to Ihe nearby airlines reservations girl who handed him the match. The girl bowed to the re- porter-and before the epi- sode reached a climax, Ihe hotel lobby resembled a field of oil pumps. DO THEIR BEST There have been some won- derful encounters with the language. None of the Canadians speak Japanese, but every Japanese is doing his level best to the language of his guests. Which leads to notices such us the laundry list in press house which gives you the price (or refurbishing "brouscs" and and the restaurant sign "advertis- ing "cigaletles." But perhaps the most unwil- l i n g I y appropriate remark came from the airlines stew- ardess who noticed the look of terror on a passenger's face as she demonstrated the life jacket. "Don't she reas- sured him. "I'm not going to wear it for the whole fright." The language problem hasn't been entirely one-sided accidental, for that mat- ter. Wrhon a pretty young inter- preter sought help from a bi- lingual Canadian, the conver- sation went this way: "How do you say 'You're welcome' in "Why do you want to know "I like lo be polite to our French guests, so I asked one of them how to say it. But every time I say 'Je vous somebody kisses me." Her only language, other than Japanese, it should be pointed out, is English.

The win moved the Czechs into first place with a 2-1 wou-lost record and four points.

Tlie Prcnghorns, who clinch- ed third place with four straight victories, watched the Thunder- ettes lake avay their winning streak. From the opening whistle the Thunderetles proved to be the stronger of the two clubs and managed to rack up a comfort- able 31-15 half-time lead. Thunderettes' tough defence proved to bo one of their stronger points as they held tlie Pronghoms well outside shoot- ing range [or most of the game. If the Pronghorns ever de- cided to drive in towards the basket the story could Changs considerably. Terri McGovern paced Thundereltes with e solid point performance while Janlco Gee chipped in with eight. Minnie Van Dieren was high scorer for the Pronghorns hoop- ing 12 points while Debbie added five.
