Background: Miss H. Walter of Austria was filmed by VISNEWS Feb 8 during the performance that won her the Women European Figure Skating Championships at Davos, Switzerland. Miss S. Dinkstra (Holland) was second and Miss J. Haanappel (Holland) third. Miss Walter's 1,597.4 points and 11.5 placements were more than enough to win her the coveted title.
Many competitors were affected by the sun and high altitude forcing withdrawal of some and performance limitation in others.
Best British performance came from fourteen year old Miss D. Clifton-Peach of Queens Club, London. She came ninth. Miss Caroline Krau, also of Queens Club, came fifteenth.
