  • Description

    BREATHTAKING JUMPS AT THE EUROPEAN WATER SKI-ING CHAMPIONSHIPS IN ITALY YESTERDAY (SUNDAY) GAVE AN OUTSIZE SHARE OF THRILLS - WITH PLENTY OF LAUGHS THROWN IN.

    LEAPS OF UP TO 82 FT. (ABOUT 28 METRES) WERE MADE AS COMPETITORS AT CASTEL GANDOLFO CLEARED THE RAMP AT BREAKNECK SPEEDS. BUT NOT ALL OF THEM LANDED SUCCESSFULLY - OR THE RIGHT WAY UP - ON THE OTHER SIDE.

    A SLIGHT ERROR IN JUDGEMENT AND THE CHANCES WERE THAT YOU TURNED A COMPLETE SOMERSAULT, ON LANDING OR, LIKE ONE COMPETITOR, MAKE A PERFECT JUMP, LAND CORRECTLY AND THEN TAKE AN UNEXPECTED UNDIGNIFIED PLUNGE INTO THE OCEAN.

    ONE MAN MISTIMED HIS JUMP; LANDED - SOMEHOW - ON THE WATER AND THEN SANK VERY SLOWLY FROM VIEW.

    MISS DUFLOT OF FRANCE WON THE WOMEN'S JUMPING CHAMPIONSHIP AND THE MEN'S EVENT WAS WON BY GERHARD OF AUSTRIA - JUMPING CHAMPION IN 1963.
