Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LSTHBRIDGE HERALD Montfoy, Seplembtr II, 1972 Triumph and tragedy shared spotlight Flame goes out today at 1972 Olympics OOPS Soviet Union's Zurab SakancJelidze (No. 6) loses the ball during an action phase of the United States vs Soviet Union final match of the Olympic Games basksf- bal! tournament here last night.

Collins of the U.S. stole the ball from a Russian, rushed down the court for a layup shot, and was fouled. He fired off his free throws quickly and sank both. Three seconds were left and the Rus- sians couldn't even gel off a good shot in time. The Americans won 50-49 and went wild on the floor, jumping for joy and hugging each other. Spectacular ending No. 2: As [he PIBA jury explained it later, there had been "disturb- ing effects and misunder- standings which influenced the normal flow of so the last three seconds were not valid. The clock was reset to three seconds, and action re- sumed. It was like a long touchdown pass in football as six-foot- seven Aleksander Belov leaped high between American defend- ers Kevin Joyce and Jim For- bes, hauled down a 90-foot throw-in from the opposite end line and scored just before the buzzer, with Joyce and Forbes sprawled on the floor.

By BHUCH l.EVKTT Canadian 1'rcss Sports Editor MUNICH (CP) -The 1972 Olvmpics, a mixture of triumph and tragedy, end today with the dousing of' the flame that burned for 17 days, some of them the most momentous in the history of the Modern Games. Crises rooted in racially-trou- bled Africa and the divided Middle East intruded on Ihe festival. A movement dedicated to peace found itself confronted first with political bitterness and finally with terror. The death of 11 Israeli Olym- pians in an Arab terrorist raid left Olympic ideals tattered and subdued Ihe festive atmos- phere. Halted for 24 hours on their llth day last Wednesday after tlie murders, the Games might have ended right I lien ant] there but for Avery Brundage, who at the end of liis 20-year reign as Olympic boss insisted they 'must go and they did. Now the scene shifts to Mon- treal, where in four years Can- ada will hold its first Olympics The Brundage era over, the 21st Olympics may take on new look under the stewardship of Irish peer Lord Killanin, who succeeds Brundage as president of the International Olympic Committee. The 20th Games, which drew crowds of daily for the glamor track and field events that ended Sunday, were lef with only the traditional Grand Prix des Nations jumping even! and the closing ceremony on to- day's program. Brundage, whose term of of fice officially ends Sept. 30, wa to make the closing address calling upon Ihe youth of al countries to assemble four years from now at Montreal. Organizers of the 197S games already have said they have re inlenlion of changing thei plans despite the disasters Munich. For Canada today, It was th last chance for a gold medal, situation identical to the on four years ago when the equest rians led by Tom Gayford wo on the last day at Mexico City.
