Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 21, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta fuetday, July 21, 1970 THE LETHBRIDCE HERALD Mead, Markus Win, Bill Thompson Leads Wagons ACTION FAST AND FURIOUS CHUCKWAGON RACES OPEN MONDAY NIGHT Australians Continue To Pull Away From The Rest Canadians Looking For More Games' Medals EDINBURGH (CP) Two Canadian swimmers were look ing for their second gold medals of the Commonwealth Games today. Bill Mahony of New West minster, B.C., already a winner in the men's 200-metre breast stroke, was the fastest qualifier for the 100-metre final, the firs event on the day's program George Smith of Edmonton, the titleholder in the 400-metre indi vidual medley, led three Oana dians with the best qualifying times in the 200. Mahoney and Smith were in a position to give Canada seran victories in swimming and div- ing before the half-way mark oi the program, equalling the pre- vious high achieved in the 1966 Games at Kingston, Jamaica. Despite their phenomena! progress, the Canadians losl ground to Australia Monday in their battle for top honors in the Metcalfe Zone Winner The Southern Alberta Zone trials for the junior girls was held yesterday at the Hender- Eon Lake golf course. After all the rounds were fin- ished Berniee Metcalfe of Leth- bridge carted home the first place honors with a net score of 77. Pat Hall of Medicine Hat was runner up coming in four strokes off Metcalfe's pace with an 81. These two girls will now com- pete as a team to represent the Southern Zone in the Alberta Zone finals. The Alberta finals will take place at the Henderson Lake Golf Course August 18. EXPORTS REGULAR AND KINGS pool. The Aussies, facing their stiffest challenge since they rose to prominence after the Second World War, took three titles to Canada's one. Byron MacDonald, who clams Canadian citizenship al- though his parents moved to Chicago from Thunder Bay, Ont, before he was born, led a 1-2-3 sweep in the men's 100- metre butterfly for the lone Ca- nadian victory. Tom Arusoo of Montreal and Ron Jacks of Van- couver followed him home. It was the first time Canadi- ans had ever monopolized the medals in a single swimming event and came as a defiant reply to two similar Australian performances in the women's 400 and men's 100 freestyle. The faces on the victory plat- form were familiar'. Sprint win- ner Mike Wenden had been there twice before, picking up an individual gold for .the 200 freestyle and another for a strong anchor leg in the 400 freestyle relay. Karen Moras who had set a world record win ning the women's 800 freestyle fumed over her failure to do i again in the 400. Australian favorite Don Wags tat'f won the men's springboarc Letkbridge Swimmers Fared Well During the weekend, Stan Siwik, coach of the Lethbridge Lions Amateur Swim Club and six swimmers travelled to Ed- monton for the Alberta Open Long Course Championships. The event was held in the Edmonton's new 50 metre Coro- nation Pool and was much to the liking of the Lethbridge swimmers. The men's open relay team of Bob Broder, Gary Scovill, Lome Kemtnet and Norman Kasting won the H. Herschorn Cup in the 400 metre relay. In individual showing, Norm- an Kasting gained a bronze medal in the 200 metre free- style and'fourth place ribbons for the 400 metre and the 100 metre freestyle and in the 100 metre butterfly. Lome Kemmet won 'a bronze nedal in the 200 metre butter- ly and a sixth in 100 metre jutterfly. Bob Broder also picked up a >ronze medal, but was in the 100 metre backstroke.

The Canadians and Brazilians were tied at two matches apiece wfore the final singles match between Mandarino and Sharpe, native of Australia who now iyes in Toronto. But Mandarino outplayed lharpe throughout all three games, mixing his attack with a strong combination of lobs, slices and slams to win 6-1, 6-0, 2.

Tliat set up the key final sin- gles match. But Mandarino sun- ply proved too strong for Sharpe and gave the Brazilians the right to advance to the quarter- finals against Spain Aug. 1-3. PLEASES FAN'S Several times Mandarine's seemingly impossible returns brought the spectators at the Sao Paulo Pinheiros Sports Club to their feet with applause. Sharp played well but many of his attempts to place the ball out of Mandarino's reach dropped outside the court or went into the net. "Today was a lucky day and everything worked out Mandarino said after the match. "But I think Sharpe's technical skills were not up to their nor- mal level." Koch, absent from the courts for three months wliile recuper- ating from a bout of hepatitis simply did not have the physical stamina to stand up to Canada's No. 1 player as Belkin played steady tennis. Koch, a wiry southpaw, kept Belkin on the run during the first set and minimized the ef- fect of the Canadian's powerful return. But Belkio found the mark early in the second set and rifled several shots past Koch's outstretched racket to take a 3-0 lead in games. The Brazilian regained his form and rebounded to set point in the 12th game. But Belkin re- m a i n e d firm, broke Koch's serve in the 14th game, won the set and evened the match. SERVES FAST Belkin took the third and fourth sets, wearing Koch down with his steady game. The mus- cular Canadian aced the Bra- zilian star several times1 with his swift serves. "Koch was explained Alcides Procopio, the Brazilian team captain. "Don't forget, he was out of action for two months. He was putting extra effort into his serve, but Belkin kept returning them very well." Canada trailed 2-1 in the ser- ies after Sunday's double which saw Mandarino and Koch heat Belkin and Sharpe 6-3, 3-6, 0-6, 6-3. Play in that match was interrupted many times for arguments over line calls. In S a t u r d a y 's singles matches, Belkin defeated Man- dariho 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 and Koch de- feated Sharp 9-7, 7-5, 5-7, 8-6. The last time Canada met Canada in zil won by the game 3-2 marfia diving title with Ken Sully of White Rock, B.C., and Ron Frie- sen of Saskatoon boosting the Canadian medal total by taking the next two places. George Smith's sister Sue got another medal for the family collection by finishing second behind Diane Langley of Eng- land in the women's 100 butter- fly and Mike Richards of Wales captured the men's 200 back- stroke. It was the first time in three days that the colors on the victory flagpole at the pool were neither Australian nor Cana- dian. That left Australia with an 8-5 lead over Canada in gold med- als with 18 swimming and div- ing events to go. On land it was a different story. Weightlifter Pierre St. Jean of Montreal, the middle- weight champion in 1966, settled for1 a bronze this time, losing his title to Australian Russell Pery. AUSSIES 13, CANADA S That gave the Aussies 13 gold medals over-all after 32 events to nine for England and Can- ada's five. In the unofficial point stand- ings, based on a 10-5-4-3-2-1 count for the top six placings, it was Australia 256, England and Canada 148. England's fencers were mur- dering the opposition, picking up their third consecutive title in the women's individual foil from defending champion Janet Wardell Yerburgh as none of the three Canadians in the field got past the semi-finals. Track and field athletes got a break from the schedule, which gave them a day off as heavy rain left puddles on the all- weather track at Meadowbank Stadium and forced an early halt in cycling events. Officials said the fast-drying track would present no problems unless more rain fell today.
