  • Description

    ITALY'S TOP TOBOGGAN RIDER, NINO BIBBIA, LEADS THE FIELD AFTER PRELIMINARY HEATS OF THE 1964 HEATON GOLD CUP ON THE CRESTA RUN AT ST. MORITZ, IN SWITZERLAND.

    TWENTY-FOUR RIDERS QUALIFIED FOR THE FIRST DAY'S HEATS YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY). PLACINGS WERE CALCULATED ON AN AGGREGATE TIME FOR THREE RUNS OVER THE COURSE, WHICH IS IN GOOD CONDITION. AMPLE SNOW AT ST. MORITZ CONTRASTS WITH THE LACK OF SNOW AT OTHER SWISS AND AUSTRIAN CENTRES WHERE INTERNATIONAL WINTER SPORTS FIXTURES ARE BEING RUN IN BAD CONDITIONS.

    BIBBIA RECORDED AN AGGREGATE TIME OF 2 MINUTES 18.6 SECONDS -- ABOUT ONE SECOND FASTER THAN THAT REGISTERED BY SQUADRON LEADER MITCHELL OF BRITAIN. IN THIRD PLACE IS KUEDERLI OF SWITZERLAND. RIDERS WITH THE TWELVE BEST TIMES QUALIFY FOR THE FINALS TODAY (THURSDAY).

    THE ITALIAN RIDER, WHO HAS WON THE TITLE EIGHT TIMES IN THE PAST EIGHT YEARS. IS FIRM FAVOURITE TO WIN THE TROPHY FOR THE NINTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR.
