  • Description

    WITH DAZZLING STEPS AND PERFECT HARMONY THE CZECHOSLOVAK BROTHER AND SISTER, PAVEL AND EVA ROMAN, RETAINED THEIR ICE DANCING CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE AT CORTINA LAST SATURDAY. THEIR SCORE: 32.4 POINTS, 14 PLACINGS.

    THE CZECH PAIR ALMOST DEAD-HEATED WITH THE BRITISH AND EUROPEAN CHAMPIONS, MICHAEL PHILLIPS AND MISS LINDA SHEARMAN. THEIR SCORE: 322.4 POINTS, 15 PLACINGS. BUT THE CZECHS WITH ONE MARK LESS, WON BY THE JUDGES' MAJORITY PLACING.

    A FINE PERFORMANCE BY CANADA'S K. ORMSBY AND MISS P. DOAN BROUGHT THEM THIRD PLACE. THEIR SCORE: 313.6 POINTS, 26 PLACINGS.

    IN THE FREE DANCING THE BRITISH COUPLES' PROGRAMME WAS SKATED WITH IMMACULATE STYLE AND TECHNICAL EFFICIENCY, BUT PAVEL AND EVA ROMAN PROVED SUPERIOR WITH THEIR SUBERB TECHNIQUE AND EXHILARATING SPIRIT.

    THE CZEHCS HAD TRAILED BEHIND MISS SHEARMAN AND PHILLIPS AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE FOUR COMPULSORY PATTERNS ON FRIDAY AND IT LOOKED AS THOUGH THEY MIGHT BE BEATEN BY THE BRITISH PAIR FOR THE SECOND TIME RUNNING. BUT SATURDAY'S FREE SKATING SECURED VICTORY FOR THE ROMANS, WHO SKATED AT THE TOP OF THEIR FORM.
