  • Description

    ...NOW OVER TO TODAYS ICE HOCKEY MATCH BETWEEN CANADA AND RUSSIA - AT THE MOMENT THE RUSSIANS ON THE ATTACK. AND ALMOST TOTAL PRESSURE ON THE CANADIAN END. JUST A FEW BREAKS AS THE CANADIANS TRY TO RELIEVE THE PRESSURE AND GET THE PUCK OUT OF THEIR OWN END. THE RUSSIANS IN THE DARK SWEATERS SURROUNDING THE CANADIAN GOAL THERE AND BRILLIANT PASSING FROM THEM. THERE IS A CHECK THERE RIGHT AT THE GOAL.AND THE RUSSIANS SCORING TO TIE IT UP AT 1-1 IN THIS SECOND PERIOD. AND THERE IS NO DOUBT ABOUT IT - THERE IS THE RUSSIAN CHEER SECTION - THEY CERTAINLY SHOWED UP BETTER ICE HOCKEY PLAYERS HERE THAN THE CANADIANS, WHO HAVE HAD A LONG RUN AT GOLD MEDALS IN ICE HOCKEY. CANADIANS ON THE PUCK NOW AT THE MOMENT. BUT THERE IS A DIFFERENCE, THE RUSSIANS ARE FASTER SKATERS, THEY SHOOT FASTER AND PASS THE PUCK AROUND MORE. LET US HAVE A LOOK AT IT FOR OURSELVES. PRECISION LIKE STUFF AS THE PUCK MOVES AROUND FROM STICK TO STICK. THERE IS A CANADIAN TAKING A RUSSIAN OUT OF THE PLAY - BUT MEANTIME THERE ON A BREAK - PASS OVER IF THEY CAN MAKE IT. IT THINK IT IS OFF-SIDE. YES, AND THE PUCK CALLED BACK FOR A FACE OFF. TREMENDOUSLY FAST SKATERS THE RUSSIANS - THEY REALLY MOVE AROUND - THEY USE THE OPEN SPACE - IF THEY HAVEN'T GOT POSSESSION OF THE PUCK THEY MOVE INTO A PLACE WHERE THEY CAN GET IT FORM A TEAM MATE.CHANGE OF PLAYERS NOW FROM THE CANADIANS. PACKED STADIUM HERE FOR THIS EVENT. EVERYBODY THOUGHT IT WOULD TURN OUT TO BE SOMETHING OF A TUSSLE, BUT INDEED THERE WERE FEW PENALTIES IN THE GAME. CANADIANS ON A BREAK HERE, THERE IS A BEAUTIFUL HIGH WIDE SHOT THERE TO THE LEFT HAND CORNER OF THE NET BY THE CANADIANS - THEY WERE IN FACT LEADING AGAIN 2-1, BUT THE RUSSIANS FOUGHT BACK, AND LET'S SEE HOW THEY DID TI. AND HERE IS HOW YOU PLAY ICE HOCKEY WITHOUT A STICK - I WONDER IF IT DOES ANY GOOD - SOME COACHES WOULD TAKE HIM OFF FOR THAT BUT HE HAS BLOCKED THE PLAY AND THE CANADIANS ON A BREAK. CHECKED VERY CLOSELY THERE BY THE RUSSIANS. THE RUSSIANS INDEED TAKING THE GOLD MEDAL IN THE EVENT AND WINNING THE EVENT 3-2 IN THE E
    ND, BUT LET US SEE HOW IT HAPPENED. SWEDEN TOOK SECOND PLACE IN THE TOURNAMENT AND THE CZECHS WERE THIRD.

    HERE NOW THE RUSSIANS WITH THEIR MACHINELIKE PRECISION. PASS - PASS - OUT IN FRONT NOW, A DRIVE IN THE NET NOW WOULD MAKE IT POSSIBLY. IT IS NOT QUITE THERE, BUT A BIG SCRAMBLE ROUND THE CANADIAN END ANT IT IS ALMOST ENTIRELY RUSSIAN THIS TIME DOWN AT THE CANADIAN END. ANOTHER SCORING CHANCE ALMOST THERE - THERE'S A CANADIAN TAKING A RUSSIAN UP AGAINST THE BOARD THERE - BUT THE RUSSIANS STILL IN POSSESSION. THE RIGHT WINGER MOVING INN NOW TRYING TO DRIVE ONE IN AND THE PUCK IS LOOSE AND THERE IS A SCRAMBLE BUT STILL NO SCORING. BUT STILL NO LET UP FOR THE CANADIANS, THE RUSSIANS OVERWHELMED THEM IN FACT AND I BELIEVE THE SCORE SHOULD HAVE BEEN GREATER. THERE IS A BACK HAND SHOT AND ANOTHER GOAL FOR THE RUSSIANS. AND A FACE OF NOW. THIS DID NOT TURN OUT TO BE QUITE THE BOXING MATCH EVERYONE EXPECTED IT TO BE. THE CANADIANS OF A BREAK BUT A SHOT FROM TOO FAR OUT AND THIS RUSSIANS GOALIE INCIDENTALLY IS OUTSTANDING. GETTING JUST A LITTLE ROUGHER THERE IN THE CORNER AND STILL RUSSIA CONTROLLING THE PUCK - BEAUTIFUL PASSING DROP PASS THERE - CENTRE MAN MOVING RIGHT IN THERE, AND THEY ALL MOVE AROUND AND PUT THEMSELVES INTO POSITION FOR A GOAL AND IT IS IN FACT RAMMED HOME. SCORE 3-2 FOR THE RUSSIANS AS THEY ALL GO CRAZY IN THE RINK. GREAT VICTORY FOR THE OTHER SIDE OF THE IRON CURTAIN AT ICE HOCKEY OVER THE TRADITIONAL WINNERS, CANADA. AND WITH THAT IS OVER NOW TO THE SPECIAL SKI JUMP - THE BIG JUMP AS THEY CALL IT AT BERG IS HERE. AND FIRST AWAY IT IS BOKILO (?) OF GERMANY WITH A SPLENDID LEAP - AT THE OTHER END OF THIS JUMP HERE THERE IS A CEMETERY - HIS FURTHEST JUMP INCIDENTALLY WAS 301 FT. NEXT, IT IS BRANDTZAEG OF NORWAY - FAMOUS NAME IN NORWAY. BRANDTZAEG, A TREMENDOUS EXPLOSIVE TAKE OFF THERE AND HIS TOP JUMP WAS 301 FT. THEY TAKE THE BEST OF THE THREE OF THEM, POINTS AWARDED FOR STYLE ALSO. OF COURSE THE MAN WITH THE BEST STYLE USUALLY PERFORMS THE BEST ??? WELL. NEXT THEN IT IS KANKKONEN OF FINLAND AND ??? HE COMES IN THAT IMPORTANT RUN DOWN TO GATHER SPEED. MAGNIFICENT TAKE OFF, BEAUTIFUL STYLE. LOVELY JUMP
    AND LANDING, HIS JUMP 313 FT AND HE TOOK A SILVER MEDAL. BRANDTZAEG TOOK A BRONZE, KANKKONEN A SILVER AND NOW LET US HAVE A LOOK AT ENGAN, TORALF ENGAN AND HIS RUN DOWN -TREMENDOUS SPRING FORWARD, MAGNIFICENT JUMP - DISTANCE OF 306FT NOT THE FURTHEST JUMP BUT THE MOST BEAUTIFUL IN STYLE, THAT IS ENGAN AND THE SPECIAL SKI JUMP.
