    Background: THE HEATON GOLD CUP -- ONE OF THE PREMIER EVENTS IN THE WORLD OF TOBOGGANING - IS CURRENTLY BEING COMPETED FOR AT ST. MORITZ
    IT'S A TWO DAY EVENT, WITH EACH COMPETITOR BEING JUDGED ON THREE RUNS DOWN THE "CRESTS RUN" ON EACH DAY.

    21 COMPETITORS TOOK PART ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE EVENT, HELD TODAY (WEDNESDAY).

    ONCE AGAIN THE DAY'S EVENTS WERE DOMINATED BY NINO BIBBIA, THE NEAR-LEGENDARY ITALIAN TOBOGGAN CHAMPION. BIBBIA HAS WON THE HEATON GOLD CUP FOR THE LAST NINE YEARS AND LOOKS ALL SET TO TAKE THE TROPHY AGAIN.

    IN HIS THREE RUNS TODAY, BIBBIA HAD AN AGGREGATE TIME FIRST DAY TIME OF 2 MINUTES 15.8 SECONDS -- THIS COMPARES WELL WITH HIS LAST YEAR'S FIRST DAY TIME OF 2 MINUTES 18.6 SECONDS.

    FOLLOWING HIM TODAY, THE SWISS CHAMPION, H. KUEDERLI. KUEDERLI, WHO CAME THIRD IN LAST YEAR'S EVENT, WAS LESS THAN A SECOND BEHIND THE ITALIAN.

    THIRD IN TODAY'S HEAT WAS R. WIDDOWS, OF GREAT BRITAIN.

    TOMORROW ANOTHER LEADING BRITISH COMPETITOR WILL BE TAKING PART: SQUADRON LEADER MITCHELL. MITCHELL WAS SECOND LAST YEAR AND PROMISES TO PRESENT A GREAT CHALLENGE TO BIBBIA.

    THE HEATON GOLD CUP WAS FIRST PRESENTED FOR THE "CRESTA RUN" EVENT IN 1931.
