    Background: Switzerland's Marie-Therese Nadig pulled off the surprise of the day on Saturday (5 February) when she won the Gold Medal in the Women's Downhill event at Mt. Eniwa, near Sapporo on the third day of the Winter Olympics. The 17-year-old Miss Nadig swept down the 15-gate course in one minute 36.68 seconds -- ahead of Austria's Annemarie Proell, the current World Cup Alpine Champion and the favourite. Miss Proell finished with the Silver Medal.

    Another highlight of the day was the Men's 500-metre speed skating race at the Makomanai outdoor speed skating rink. West Germany's Erhard Keller won the Gold Medal -- and set a new Olympic record with a time of 39.44 seconds.

    This film is pool coverage shot by the Japanese television company NHK -- and Visnews is the only newsfilm agency with access to the Sapporo newsfilm pool.
