Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - THE IETHBRID0E HERALD - Wednesday, January 20, 1971-- Figure skating championships under ivay Centennials edge Bombers, Brother, sister team take first title WINNIPEG (CP) - Bernardi Souche had the flu all day and a 1 nose bleed shortly before going on to the ice for the finals of the novice pairs competition at the Canadian figure skating championships Tuesday. IDs partner, 13-year-old sister Marie, told herself she- would just have to work that much harder during the routine to help along her 15-y e a l -o 1 d brother. Competing out of the Upper Canada Skating Club in Toronto, the pair combined for a near-flawless performance to capture the novice pairs championship, receiving first-place totals from iix of the seven judges. It was the first championship to be decided in the six-day competition, and the only one Tuesday. Reid Macdonald of Preston, Ont. and Janice Maikawa of Dundas, Ont. finished second with 55.8 points, 3.1 behind the champions. The Vancouver entry of'Carol Kreuzinger and Chin Cox placed third. TOP SENIORS ARRIVE Most of the day's activity centred around' the arrival of two of the country's top senior ladies-defending champion Karen Magnussen of Vancouver and Cathy Lee Irwin, a native of Toronto. Miss Magnussen, 18, is expected to retain her national title in preparation for the North American championship next month. Until a week ago ber main competition here was expected to come from Miss Irwin, an 18-year-old blonde who arrived on crutches, the result of a practice mishap last week. Despite the fractured pelvis that is keeping her off skates for six weeks, the 1970 Canadian runner-up stole the spotlight. Miss Irwin, who fielded questions throughout the day from reporters, officials, skaters, spectators and other weltwish-crs, said: "What can I say? They all say they're sorry it happened. AII'T can say is 'so am I'." . After finishing 10th in last year's world competition-"a good start for me"-she expected to improve that standing this year and take aim at the 1972 Olympics. The combination of Miss Magnussen and Miss Irwin would have given Canada two of the finest female skaters in international competition. "I'll have to work that much harder now," Miss Irwin said. "I'll have to really skate well and hope to make the selectors think that I'm skating well and deserve a chance at the '72 Olympics." Ontario skaters dominated the opening day's events. Besides winning the novice pairs' title, Ontario entries led after completion of the compulsory figures in the novice men's and ladies' singles and the initial rounds of the novice and junior dance events. Lee Armstrong of Chatham, Out. held a solid margin over Kevin Robertson of Toronto in the men's event while Kim Wylie of Gait, Ont. was atop the ladies' section.
