    INTERNATIONAL TEAMS HAVE BEEN PRACTISING IN CORTINA D'AMPEZZO FOR THE 2-MAN WORLD BOBSLEIGH CHAMPIONSHIPS WHICH START ON SATURDAY (JAN 29)
    THE BRITISH TEAM OF TONY NASH AND ROBIN DIXON HAVE MADE THE BEST TIME FOR A DESCENT IN THE PRACTICE RUNS SO FAR WHEN THEY CLOCKED UP A TIME OF 1 MINUTE, 18.05 SECONDS. ON THE BEST OF THEIR TWO RUNS. ON THE OTHER RUN THEY RETURNED A TIME OF 1 MINUTE, 18.88 SECONDS. THE BEST OVERALL TIME FOR THE TWO RUNS WAS MADE BY ITALIANS EUGENIO MONTI AND SERGIO SIORPAES WITH 1 MINUTE, 18.35 SECONDS AND 1 MINUTE, 18.50 SECONDS.

    THE TRACK WAS FASTER AND MORE SLIPPERY TONIGHT AS SOME OF THE PRECAUTIONARY SNOW THAT HAD BEEN MIXED IN LAST NIGHT TO SLOW DOWN THE TRACK WAS REMOVED TONIGHT. BOTH THE BELGIAN AND RUMANIA TEAMS OVERTURNED ON THEIR RUNS BUT NO ONE WAS HURT.
