  • Description

    OLEG PROTOPOPOV AND LUDMILLA BELOUSOVA, THE SOVIET HUSBAND-AND-WIFE SKATING TEAM, TODAY (THURSDAY) RETAINED THE WORLD PAIRS FIGURE SKATING CHAMPIONSHIP AT DAVOS, IN SWITZERLAND.

    PROTOPOPOV AND HIS WIFE NARROWLY DEFEATED ANOTHER RUSSIAN SKATING PAIR, ALEXANDER GORELIK AND TATIANA ZHUK IN AN EXCITING FINALE. THE WINNERS WERE AWARDED 314.8 POINTS WHILE GORELIK AND ZHUK RECEIVED 313.7.

    THE TWO RUSSIAN PAIRS WERE WELL AHEAD OF OTHER TEAMS AT THE FINISH. THE AMERICAN TEAM OF RONALD AND CYNTHIA KAUFFMANN WERE THIRD, WITH 298.2 POINTS, AND WOLFGANG DANNE AND MARGOT GLOCKSHUBER, OF WEST GERMANY, WERE FOURTH WITH 295 POINTS.

    THE WINNING RUSSIAN PAIR GAVE A CLASSICAL STYLE PERFORMANCE, EXCELLING WITH SPIRALS AND DOUBLE JUMPS.

    THE PERFORMANCE OF THE OTHER RUSSIAN TEAM WAS ALSO SO GOOD THAT IT WAS ONLY THE VOTE OF ONE OF THE NINE JUDGES THAT DEPRIVED THEM OF VICTORY.
