M The Aussles banked on Mike Wenden, their 100- and 200- metre gold medal winner at the 1968 Olympics, to lead them to a gold in the men's 400-metre freestyle relay. Australia won 11 swimming gold four years ago In Jamaica to seven for Canada and five for England. MAKING NO PREDICTIONS While Canadian coaches have been reluctant to claim a gold medal spree here, they freely admit their swimmers represent the strongest and best-balanced team Canada ever has sent overseas. In diving, Beverly Boys of Pickering, Ont., began her chal- lenge for gold in the women's springboard preliminaries. The other golds to be awarded today were in the flyweight and bantamweight weightlifting classes. Among the bantam- weights, Hong Kong-born Chun Hon Chan of Montreal faced stiff competition from favored Precious McKenzie of England. In track, the Africans won six gold medals in the last Games. This time it could be even more. Kip Keino of Kenya, the lead- ing figure in the African chal- lenge; decided to go for the metres and the metres this time. The metric mile is scheduled for Wednes- day and the metres will bring down the curtain on the Games Saturday, July 25. Keino won the mile and three miles in Jamaica and the Olym- pic metres two years ago. HAS TENDON TROUBLE Another Kenyan star, Naftali Temu, will be going in the metres Wednesday, un- less Achilles tendon trouble keeps him on the sidelines. Temu won the Olympic metres at Mexico City and was the six-mile winner at Kingston, Jamaica, in 1966. Kenyan Charles Asati in the 400 metres, Stan Allotey of Ghana in the 200 and some 10.1- second men in the 100 all figure to make the African challenge a stiff one. The field events looked to be a contest among the Canadians, Australians and Britons, with 17-y e a r -o 1 d Debbie Brill of Haney, B.C., outstanding in the women's high jump. No one in the Commonwealth has matched her recent leap of six feet, three-quarters of an inch. Athletes from 42 countries staged their entrance into Mea- dowbank Stadium Thursday for the opening ceremonies, march- ing past Prince Philip, who had arrived only hours earlier from a royal tour of Canada with the Queen. Cannons boomed nine times to signify the ninth Games and a dozen RAF jets made their fly- past as Philip, wearing a black arm sling due to a recent polo injury, opened the Games. Miners Seek Junior Title Lethbridge Junior Mine r s will be seeking the Alberta title this weekend when they travel to Morinville. Miners, currently competing in the Lethbridge Recreation Baseball League, will be bat- tling for top honors against Calgary, Drumheller and Mor- inville. The locals open play S'atur- day at against Calgary in the two day double knockout event. Alberta's winner will advance to the Canadian final in Car- men, Man., in August. Says: Golf's Million Dollar Wlnnir FINISH HIGH You may think that your position at the fin- ish of your follow-through has- little to do with the result of the shot. After all, the ball has been struck so there's nothing you can da -about its flight now. However, your finish does indicate HOW you have swung. For example, you've made an uninhibit- ed swing 41 ____ are high, (2) your weight is solidly on the left side, (3) your right foot up on its toe, (4) your belt buckle facing the target. The golfer whose finish is hesitant will no doubt have flinched or somehow jerked on the downswing. Chances are he'd like to have another chance at that shot. Swing to a hands-high position and you'll reallyrock that ball. 1970 HAH. fflt.
