Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Thursday, March 7, 1974 Sopers may quit skating Canadians make their move By GORDON GRANT CP Sports Editor MUNICH (CP) While Russians prevailed in pairs, the feeling Wednesday at the World Figure Skating Championships was that- the Canadians are moving up. Russian pairs won the gold and silver medals, the first ti- tles to be decided, while Cana- dians Toller Cranston and Ron Shaver finished first and second in the men's singles compulsory free skating and moved into medal contention. Irina Rodnina and Alex Zait- sev won their second con- secutive pairs title and team- mates Ludmila Smirnova and Alexei Ulanov took the silver. The bronze went to East Ger- many's Romy Kermer and Rolf Osterreich. Sandra and Val Bezic of To- ronto finished fifth, one place ahead of their 1973 showing. It was Rodnina's sixth world title and Zaitsev's second. Rodnina won four of her titles as the partner of Ulanov, but the team broke up when she married Smirnova. The champions received a perfect mark of six from one judge and eight 5.9s for techni- cal merit. They received nine 5 9s for artistic impression. HAPPY WITH PLACING The Bezics said they were happy with the way they skated and "with our fifth- place finish." "We're just bursting with said Sandra. "We have so many plans we can't wait to get back (to Toronto) and start working on them." In the men's compulsory free skate, Cranston of Toronto jumped to fourth place from eighth with his first-place finish while Shaver of Cambridge, Ont., jumped to fifth from seventh. It will be tough for either of them to catch leader Jan Hoff- mann of East Germany or second-placed Sergei Volkov, but experts agree it'is possible. The over-all men's title will be decided tonight. Hoffmann has 126.84 points and 14 ordinals and Volkov has the same number of points and 16 ordinals. Vladimir Kovalev of Russia is third with 123.71 points, fol- lowed by Cranston with 121.66 points and 44.5 ordinals. Shaver has 121.13 points and 45 ordinals. PULL ALL STOPS "What I have to do in the free skating is skate like I've never done before and pull out all the Shaver said. Robert Rubens of Toronto, the third Canadian skater, moved to 18th from 20th by finishing fourth in the compulsory program. There are 26 men in the competition. In the compulsory free skate, the competitors must complete six elements and the marks gained count 20 per cent toward the over-all total. The figures were worth 40 per cent and the five-minute free skating is worth 40 per cent. In the dance, Ludmila Pakhomova and Alex Gorshkov, four-time champions, took the lead after two compulsory dances. They received first-place votes from all nine judges. Hilary Green and Glyn Watts of England were second and Natalya Linichuk and Gennadi Karponosov of the Soviet Union were third. Louise and Barry Soper of West Vancouver were ninth Short Sport BOCCABELLA HURT DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.

SEXTON DEPARTS LONDON (AP) Dave Sext.on, colorful and controversial manager of troubled English First Division soccer team Chelsea, was reported Monday to have left the club after a crisis meeting. Sexton's departure came after Chelsea chairman Brian Mears and other di- rectors had been unable to call a truce between the manager and star striker Peter Osgood, valued on the transfer market- as Britain's most expensive player at Osgood has been in dispute with Sexton for weeks. MATTHEWS SIGNS CASA GRANDE, Ariz. (AP) Left-fielder Gary Matthews came to salary terms with the San Francisco Giants Monday and headed for the National League club's training camp. Stumbles but wins Despite losing her balance and taking a spill, Brenda Webster of Regina still managed to capture the gold medal in the juvenile girls 500-metre speed- skating final over Norma Jsan Taylor of Saskatoon. Action took place at the Saskatchewan Winter Games in North Battleford Tuesday. Speedskating wifl be fea- tured at the Canada Winter Games here in Lethbridge next February. while Barbara Berozewski of Toronto and David Porter of Port Perry, Ont., were 16th. MAY QUIT SKATING The Sopers said they were upset about their placing. Louise said they would have to consider retirement if they didn't improve on last year's showing. They were ninth in the world the last two years. Kathy Hutchinson and Jamie McGregor of Cambridge, Ont., finished 18th and last in the pairs. Today, the women's com- pulsory free skate, another compulsory dance and a set- pattern dance and the men's finals will be held. Canada's best hope for a medal is Lynn Nightingale of Ottawa who is considered one of the finest free skaters in the world. Barbara Terpenning of West Vancouver is the other Canadian and aims to make the top 10. Wrestling scheduled BLAIRMORE (CNP Bureau) The Blairmore Lions Club has completed plans to bring another evening of wrestling to the Crowsnest Pass. The card will feature Archie Gouldie, "The Stamper." He will meet "world champion" Harley Race in a two-out-of- three fall, one-hour time limit, bout. The matches will be held in the Crowsnest Pass Consolidated High School Gymnasium at 7 o'clock Sunday. Killanin questions contract LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) Lord Killanin, presi- dent of the International Olympic Committee is convinced that claims of irregularities in the awarding of the television contract for the 1976 Montreal Games are without foundation, the committee said. Monique Berlioux, IOC director of information, said the statement was made because a Canadian debate over the contract had reached "enormous proportions." "For several weeks, there had been statements and arti- cles reserring to irregularities when the television contract was signed with the Ameri- can company the IOC communique said. "Lord Killanin is very much concerned about these allegations. After making in- quiries, he is convinced that neither ABC nor organizing committee of the Montreal have made any party conuibutions." The IOC statement came after a member of the Canadian House of Commons last Friday called for a government investigation into the awarding of the TV contract. Otto Jelinek, Conservative member for Toronto High Park-Humber Valley, told the House Friday that he believes a contribution to the Quebec Liberal Party had been made in connection with the contract. Jelinek said he had no proof of such a contribution, but in- sisted on a public inquiry to get at the truth. The television contract, worth 125 million, was approved and signed by Killanin and the IOC executive board last fall.
