Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Two face hearing Medal winners using drugs? MUNICH (CP) Two Olym- pic medals hung In the balance today as the Internationa] Olympic Committee had tho problem of drug usage by ath- letes thrown into its lap onco more. Champion swimmer Rick De- ment of the United States and Playoff ivin to Trevino Conn. (AP) Lee Trevino who has not won a tournament in the United States since May, won the first prize Monday in the Greater Hartford open golf tournament in a one-hole playoff with Lee Elder. Trevino had to drop a 12-foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole to get into the playoff with Elder and then sink a Ifi-footer on the first sudden-death hole to win the tournament. Elder, attempting to score his first tour victory and thus be- come the first black to qualify Jor the Masters golf tourna- ment, could have won in regu- lation had his five-foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole not hung on the Up. "You wonder what you have to do to said a dejected Elder, who won Trevino's victory pushed liis official 1972 winnings to to'keep him second behind Jack Nicklaus' record Both Elder and Trevino wouldn't have been in a playoff hud it not been for the disaster that struck tour sophomore Ralph-Johnston on the fourth to the last hole. WAS CO-LEADER Johnston, a co-leader with Curtis Sifford after 54 holes, scored a four-under-par 31 on the front nine and birdied the 14th to take a three-stroke lead. But his lead evaporated when he triple-bogeyed tlie par four 15th when he sprayed his drive uito the woods, took two shots to get back on to the fairway and then three-putted from 15 .feet. He could do no better than par Vfter that. Trevino and Elder finished regulation play with 15-under. par 263s, the lowest 72-hole to- tal on the tour this year. Johnston and Deane Beman, who missed a four-foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole, tied for third, one stroke back, and ford, wht struggled to a one- over-par 72 on the last day, fin- ished tied for fifth place with Homero Blanca3 at 273. George Knudson of Toronto finished at 278 and won Harris denies coaching rumors MONTREAL (CP) Billy Harris, former National Hockey League player and ex-coach of Sweden's national hockey team, denied Saturday night persist- ing rumors he was headed as coach of Ottawa Nationals of the fledgling World Hockey As- sociation. "As of now I'm Harris replied to questions about his future. "Our hockey schools closed for the season today." Dutch cyclist Aad Van den Hoek both showed "positive" reports in urine tests for stimu- lants and were disqualified for taking "forbidden prepara- tions." Demont, 16-year-old freesty- ler who is- an asthmatic, was yanked out of the freestyle finql minutes before the race started Monday night. For Van den Hoek, it meant that the entire Dutch four-man team in the pursuit road race was affected and their bronze medals withdrawn. Demont won the 400-metre freestyle gold medal last Fr- day. Whether he can keep the medal is up to the IOC's execu- tive board, which wilt also re- view the cyclists' status. ENFORCES RULES Strictly following the rules governing use of drugs on its banned list even for asthma, the medical commission an- nounced that Demont was dis- qualified "because of the use of forbidden preparations." The commssion gave similar reasons for disqualifying the Dutch team that was third in the 100-kilometre learn time trial race last Tuesday. Since Van den. Hoek was part of the team although he dropped out early in the race, the International Cyclist Union disqualified the entire team and left the final decision on their medals up to the executive board of the IOC. The IOC said it was consid- ering the question of whether to take away the medals of both tho Dutch cyclist and Demont. In Demont's case, a medical blunder apparently committed by U.S. Olympic Committee of- ficials came to light shortly be- fore the California schoolboy was to defend his world mark of 15.52.9. BURTON WINS GOLD Defendag champion Mike Burton, at 25 the "old man" of the U.S. team, took the gold In the gruelling race and with it Demont's world mark. Burton won in The disconsolate Demont, In his warmup suit at the pool, said of the drugs he uses for asthma: "I put it all on my forms. I did everything any- body asked." Dope tests following his vic- tory in the 400 showed traces of ephedrine, a drug used by asth- matcs but blacklisted by the IOC. U.S. doctors say it dilates the bronchial tubes, making It eas- ier for asthmatics to breathe. U.S. team officials dis- appeared immediately after an IOC official said the whole fiasco was their fault. "My gosh, he's been taking that medcine since he was a little said his mother, Betty. "He needs it to breathe. I didn't think that was a crime." OTHERS WARNED "Teams from other countries asked whether such medica- tions were said Prince Alexandra de Merode of Belgium, chairman of the IOC medical commission, "and we answered they should use oth- ers or run ttie risk of being dis- qualified." "It was a rather clear case and I think American team doctors must have known tiat Hick Demont had to take tho medication for his asthma" said the prince. "It is the duty of our com- mission to protect the athlete from exaggerated prescriptions given by doctors. The medica- ton given was obviously too strong or of the wrong type and should have been changed. "The persons responsible for supervision of the athlete in- volved should be punished C anadinn hallenge fined forces uture F: A Military Career Counsellor will be ot the Bridge Town House Motel, Lefhbridge, from noon to p.m., 6 and 7 Sep'ember 71 to discuss career opportunities tn Canada's Armed Forces and to applications for enrolment.

S, 1972 THE IFtHMIDOI HfSAtD How Canada performed SEVEN GOLDS Mark Spitz of Carmichael, Cal., is carried by his teammates after receiving his seventh gold medal in the 20th Olympic Gomes at Munich Monday. Teammales at the 4x100m medley swimming event wear- ing gold medafs are Mike Stamm of Son Diego, Cal., Spitz's arm; Tom Bruce of Sunnyvale, Cal., back- ground, and Jerry Heidenrekh of Dallas, Tex., right fore- ground, (AP Wirephoto) Kasting shares in relay bronze It doesn't always take four years By BRUCE LEVETT Canadian Press Sports Editor MUNICH (CP) Athletes who spend four years training to compete at the Olympic Games and never win a medal were shaking their heads at some of the goings-on in Olym- pic track and field Monday. Kip Keino, an established dis- tance runner but a novice at the steeplechase which he ran for the first time tour months ago, beat a fellow- Kenyan in Olympic record time for the gold medal. Sixteen-year-old Ulrika Mey- Earth of West Germany, in her First year of international com- petition, equalled the world record as she won the women's high jump. And 17-year-old Glenda Rei- ser of Ottawa, who switched from swimming to track 15 months ago and still doesn't know that runners are supposed to take it easy in qualifying heats, forced Ludmila Bragina of Russia to break her own world record in the met- res and got under the old mark herself. SCORES SPRINT DOUBLE A sprint double for Valery Borzov with his victory in the 200 metres and a repeat by an- other Russian, Viktor Saneev, in the triple jump restored decorum to the proceedings and the United States swept the last four events in the swimming competition, all in world record times as Canada collected a pair of bronze medals. Mark Spitz was helped to an unprecedented seventh gold medal by his team-mates on the U.S. 400-metre medley re- lay team with the Canadian en- try of Erik Fish, Medicine Hat, Bill Mahony, New West- minster, B.C.; Bnice Rob- ertson, Vancouver, and Bob Kasling, Lethbridge, barely missing a silver medal and set- ting a national record. Donna Marie Gurr of Van- couver made amends for a dis- appointing showing in the 100- metre backstroke by finishing third behind two U.S. girls in the 200. Klaus Dibiasl of Italy joined Saneev as a repeat winner by taking the men's tower diving competition and the favored Russian weightliflers, with only one gold medal to show for the first week of competition, fi- nally captured a second in the heavyweight class. ITALY SCORES UPSET Victories In wafer polo and tandem cycling gave the Soviet Union a total of five for the day but they lost a sixth when Ital- ian fencers took away the team sabre title that had been Rus- sian property in the last two Games. Japan won its third Judo championship in the lightweight division and the team pin-suit cycling title went to West Ger- many. Keino, who has described the steeplechase as an event for animals and says he jumps like a horse, began boning up on it when he discovered that the schedule prevented him from entering both the and 000 metres.

The home crowd was de- lighted when the tall, slender Miss Meyfarth used the Brill Bend to clear six feet inches while Ilona Gusenbauer of Anslria, who originally es- tablished the world mark, was second. The originator of the backward bend, Debbie Brill of Haney, B.C., was eighth at 5- AHEAD OF SCHEDULE When the pony-tailed Miss Reiser started running a year ago last May, her coach planned to bring her along in time for the 1976 Olympics in Montreal. Obviously, she's ahead of schedule. When she qualified for the Olympics she was running four minutes 15.9 seconds. Three weeks ago she brought her time down to and she went into her heat Monday hoping the presence of Miss Bra gina would get her to But her plans changed. "I think she went the first lap In 63 seconds and I did it "in she said, "I had planned on 67 but everybody seemed out for time. "After that I didn't know what time we were running. All I knew is that I found myself running quickly." The 29-year-old Russian girl, who had set the world record of earlier this year, had to reduce it to to stay ahead of her Canadian pursuer, who got home hi The nejft three girls beat the listed world record of The Russians, who won only the single and double sculls Saturday and nothing at all Sunday, came out of the long weekend with 26 gold- medals to 25 for the United Slates, which led in over-all medals, 71 to 63. In unofficial point standings, based on a 10-5-4-3-2-1 count for the first six final placings, it was 489 for the Americans and 441 for the Russians. Canada stood 18th with 24, East Germany, which had taken a run at the leaders Sat- urday with six gold medals, three of them in rowing, fell back with 16 golds, 48 total medals and 343 points.
