Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, March 5, 1973------- Former ivorld champ likes what lie sees Jackson takes look at our skaters Doc'Alcl Jacksoti won Hie men's gold nu-dal lor Can- ada at tlic world figure skating championships Li 1062 in Prague, Czech- oslovakia with a perform- ance regarded among the greatest ever. In the follow- ing article he assesses Canada's performance at this year's championship. Written for CP By DONALD JACKSON BRATISLAVA, Czech oslovakia (CF) The 1973 world skating championships have probably shown the high- est quality of staling ever. In particular the Canadian team has been outstanding. But two impressions stand out in my mind. First; the number of mishaps, especially in tlie pairs final event when the win- ning Russians, Irina Rodnina and Alexander Zaitsev, skated over half their program without music after a sound collapse, Another feature was the over- all depth of the skating, particu- larly in the area of jumping technique. Artistically, no ska- ter approached the inter- pretation of Canada's Toller Cranston or the American Janet Lynn. Certainly the highlight for the Canadian's was the world title win by Karen Magnussen. It's the first world title won by a Canadian since Petra Burka's outstanding performance and deserved honor in 1955. The two other Canadian girls at the cbamoiciustiips this yeai i must not be forgotten, however. Lynn Nightingale's fifth place the combined freeskating was incredible considering that this was her debut in world competition. Kathy Lee Irwin skated the best I have ever seen her skate but unfortunately there were so many outstanding free skaters in the competition that she seemed to get lost in the shuffl- ing of marks. Future contenders for the ladies' title, Irwin and Night- ingale apart, must be Dorothy Haniill of the United States and East Germany's Christine Er- rath. Two very young girls also show fine potential: the Japa- nese Emi Watanabe and Janetl Potzsch of East Germany. But now to the men. Toller Cranston was undoubtedly un- dermarked in the short pro- gram phase of the competition. He needed and deserved more marks of 6.0 in his short pro- gram. But as far as his free skate is concerned, even Tollsr admitted he had an off day. It was the first time he'd fallen at world level. The world champion Andrcj Nepela did have an advantage skating after Toller. As it turned out he was able to sub- stitute a double toe-loop lor a triple but nonetheless skated consistently and competently. SHAVEH CAN JUMP Canadian Bon Shaver de- monstrated lus exceptional jumping ability, being the only skaler to include four triple jumps in his program, although one was slightly muffed. The third Canadian man, Ho berl Rubens, didn't place well in the compulsory figures and thus had a difficult time work- ing his way out of the lower ca- tergory of skaters. Despite a fall on a triple sal- chow in liis free skate, he pre- sented a thrilling program. I think he had the best tuck axel of the competition. The Canadians pairs showed great promise, especially Mar- ion Murray and Glenn Moore. These two are strong individual as well as pairs skaters. This, I feel, is an essential feature by today's standards. The overall strength of the Canadians, particularly in the men's and ladies' .individual events, is rivalled only by strong Soviet team. Red Devils three up on Edmonton Sugar Kings surprise Canucks 8-7 Another one Brenl Clelcmd, 11, lifts his stick high in celebration as the Lethbridge Sugar Kings put another behind Calgary Canucks' Mike Preistner Sunday nig hi. The Kings, after Easing 19-0 to the Canucks in Calgary last Thursday, scored six limes in the fhird period 1o edge the Canucks 8-7 in Alberla Junior Hockey League action. "Dominate age class Stingrays show talent By NOEL BUCHANAN Herald Staff Writer RED DEER Lethbridge YMC A Stingr ay Swim Club plunged 38 swimmers into com- petition here Saturday against the Red Deer Optimist Catalina Swim Chib. After final points were tal- lied, the Catamia club placed in front to win this 5'i-event competition held at tlie Red Deer recreation centre indoor i pool. _ Stingrays showed their most consistent age-group strength! in 10 and under events.
