Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 22, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta THI 15THBSIDOE HEHAIB Wadruitioy, July 7J, 1970 Swimm-ers, Divers Have Today Off Paulson Wins Gold In Badminton Final By BRUCE LEVETT Canadian Press Sports Editor EDINBURGH (CP) C a 11- ada's track and field team has heartening evidence today thai it is possible to win a gold medal at the Commonwealth Games without having to swim for it. The proof was supplied Tues- day night by Jamie Paulson of Calgary, who climaxed seven years of intensive training and top international competition by whining the men's singles bad- minton title. It was Canada's eighth cham- pionship in four days of Games activity. All the other seven were won by swimmers and divers. N'o action was scheduled at the pool today and the spotlight was at Meadowbank Stadium, where Canadians so far have contibuted only a second-place silver and a third-place bronze to the over-all medal count of While Canada and Australia remained locked in a furious battle for supremacy in the pool, England stole a march on them Tuesday by picking up half a dozen titles in assorted dry-land activities. Of the five badminton divi- sions, the English conceded only Paulson's victory in the men's singles and Malaysia's first gold medal of the Games in the men's doubles. They continued to monopolize fencing competi- tion in the men's individual epec, picked up their fourth weighllifting title and won the day's only final on the track. The Australians replied with three victories hi the pool and one in weightliltuig. Two Cana- dian swimmers joined Paulson on the winners' podium and there was a sprinkling of silver medals in a variety of competitions. The Australians were still in front in the over-all medal count and the unofficial point stand- ings but England pulled away from third-place Canada to challenge the leaders. In total ntedals, tlie Aussies had 41 to England's 36 but the edge in the gold category was only 17 to 15. The point stand- ings, based on a 10-5-4-3-2-1 count for the top six placings in a final, gave Australia 312, Eng- land 291 and Canada 228. Bill Mahony of New West- minster, B.C., and Peter Cross of Montreal started the day in the pool with a 1-2 finish in the men's 100-metre breaslstroke and George Smith of Edmonton led home Ken Campbell of Van- couve for a similar result in the Coach Proud Of Meldruni Brilliant Comeback By STERLING TAYLOR EDINBURGH (CP) Jenny Meldrum of. Toronto, the "pro- fessional in the amateur according to her husband, wound up one of the great comebacks of 1970 today with a third-place finish in the women's pentathlon. Mrs. Meldrum, who retired after the 1968 Olympics to have a returned to track and field only five months ago and "has made one of the most fantastic comebacks I've ever heard said her hus- band Bob, who is also her per- sonal coach. His opinion was echoed by Heinz Piotrowski of Vancouver, a phj'siotherapist and assistant track coach with the Canadian "Physically, she is right back where she was at the 1968 Olympics, which is not impossi- ble but, nevertheless, astonish- Piotrowski said. "To re- turn to this, a person must have a great mental desire. She has always been a great competitor but I don't think anyone ever realized just how great." Mrs. Meldrum, 27, whose daughter Samantha Lee is al- most five months old, has been training strenuously foi' the last five months. Mrs. Meldrum had her great- est day ever Tuesday in the first three events of the pentath- lon. Her 14.2 seconds in the 100- metre hurdles was good enough for third and broke the previous record of 14.3 seconds set by Penny May of Vancouver last year. Her 44 in the shot put was a personal best in the pentath- lon, although she has tlirown better in individual competition. Her 5-l34 also tied her previous best in the high jump. Mrs. Meldrum got a poor jump in the long jump of 19 feet Wednesday, "but it had to be expected after yesterday's per- formance in those said her husband. She ran as good as she ever has in the 200 metres, he said. Her time of 24.8 gave her a total of points for the five events. Her best ever was points in Mexico when she finished llth. "I'm so proud of her I could her husband said. 200 individual medley. It was the second gold medal for both winners. Australia's Karen Moras, 1- ready a double winner, picked up No. 3 in the women's 200 freestyle, defeating Angela Coughlan of Burlington, Ont., the 100-metre winner. Donna- Marie Gurr of Vancouver chased home Lynne Watson of Australia in the women's 200 backstroke. There were no Canadian med- allists as Beverley Whitfield won another Australian victory in the women's 200 breaststroke with English girls taking the sil- ver and bronze. Paulson, who lost his 'only game of the badminton tourna- ment in defeating Paul Whetnall of England in the singles final, also joined Yves Pare of Mont- real to win the bronze in the men's doubles'. Canada had two men hi the epee final and Lester Wong of Toronto came away with the sil- ver medal behind ill Hoskyns of England, who has won the event three times in the last four ames. Peter akonyi of Vancouver, the only man to de- feat Hoskyns in the final pool, was fourth. Weightlifter ob Santavy of Sarnia, Ont., earned another sil- ver in the middle heavyweight class behind England's Louis Martin, who announced Ms re- tirement after winning his third consecutive gold medal. ANDY CAPP COME ON, PET, YE7? DOWT I THINK IT'S THE HEIGHT OF INSINCERITY T1 LOOK ANSTHIN' BUT VER WORST I THOUGHT VERSAIbVEK WANTEbTHIS TOBVER GOIN' AFTER England Gets Revenge At Bisley By JOHN LcBLANC BISLEY, England (CP) England got some revenge against the United States for 1776 Tuesday, finally winning an on-again-off-again rifle match, originally set up almost a cen- tury ago to commemprate the American colonies' break from the motherland. This was the first return to British soil since 1903 of the Palma Match, regarded as the world championship long-range team shoot. Britain scored out of a possible to put the United States in second position with Canada came in third with Canada was second at one stage but Britain led all the way and the invaders could not stand the British pace except on the final range of yards. The match was shot by 60 j international marks- 20 from each of the three countries, for a trophy that no- body has seen for a generation or more. The nominal prize is a mag- nificent 714 foot-high Roman standard made by New York's Tiffany's in 1876 for a U.S. Sen- ator Palma, who gave his name to it. Nobody knows where it was last seen. The trophy itself has never been to Bisley. In fact, the event been plagued with difficulties for al- most a century. EXCITING FALL COAT 0000000000 LADIES' DRESSY COATS ranae- Reg.
