  • Description

    FRENCH SINGER SACHA DISTEL, 29, AND MILE FRANCINE BREAUD, 25-YEAR-OLD FORMER FRENCH WOMAN SKI CHAMPION, WERE MARRIED AT MEGEVE TOWN HALL IN THE FRENCH ALPS LAST FRIDAY.

    DISTEL, ONE-TIME FIANCE OF FILMSTAR BRIGITTE BARDOT, ROSE FROM AN UNKNOWN CROONER TO THE RANK OF FRANCE'S LEADING POPULAR SINGER.

    A LARGE CROWD OF TOURISTS AND SKIERS GREETED THE COUPLE WHEN THEY LEFT THE TOWN HALL IN THIS FASHIONABLE RESORT AFTER THE CEREMONY WHICH WAS CONDUCTED BY THE MAYOR OF MEGEVE.

    THE SAME DAY, THE DOWNHILL EVENT OF THE EMILE ALLAIS CUP WAS HELD ON THE NEARBY SLOPES, WHERE A LIKENESS OF JACQUELINE KENNEDY HAS BEEN CARVED INTO THE SNOW.

    EGON ZIMMERMANN, 23-YEAR-OLD AUSTRIAN WORLD GIANT SLALOM CHAMPION, WON THE EVENT OVER THE 3.2-KILOMETRE (2-MILE) COURSE WITH A DROP OF 812 METRES (OVER 2,500 FEET).

    ZIMMERMANN COVERED THE DISTANCE IN 2 MIN 24.6 SECS. SECOND WAS JENA-CLAUDE KILLY OF FRANCE, IN 2 MIN 28.9 SECS. KARL SCHRANZ, ANOTHER AUSTRIAN, TOOK THIRD PLACE; AND JOOSE MINSCH, OF SWITZERLAND, WAS FOURTH.
