ATHLETES OF THE YEAR:  Denny McLain & Peggy Fleming
January 27--Wide World of Sports' first journey to the village of Kitzbuhel for alpine ski racing. WWOS has returned to Kitzbuhel many times for the famed Hahnenkamm Downhill.
March 2 & 9--Peggy Fleming wins the ladies title at the World Figure Skating Championships from Geneva. It came after her gold medal-winning performance at the 1968 Olympic Games in Grenoble and marked the end of her amateur career.
March 9--Wide World of Sports' first telecast of the International Cliff Diving Championships from Acapulco.
March 30--Jean-Claude Killy, fresh off his sweep of the gold medals at the Olympic Games, is featured in races from Rossland, British Columbia.   June 8--Pre-empted by Senator Robert Kennedy's Funeral.
June 15--First use of a wireless hand-held broadcast color camera, for closeups at the Indianapolis 500. The race was won by Bobby Unser, the first of seven Indy victories for the Unser brothers.
June 29--Old Man of Hoy Rock Climb in Scotland.
September 7--The Wide World of Sports broadcast of the U.S. Men's Olympic Swimming Trials features two of the all-time greats on opposite ends of their careers -- Don Schollander and Mark Spitz. Schollander set the last world record of his career on that show, while Spitz won both the 100- and 200-meter butterflies.
September 14 & 21--The U.S. Olympic Men's Track & Field Trials are telecast from one of the strangest venues in WWOS history -- a track cut into a forest at Echo Summit, high above Lake Tahoe at 7380 feet above sea level. The venue was selected to duplicate the conditions of Mexico City. Tommie Smith and Lee Evans set world records, and Jim McKay interviews with Smith on the potential black athlete boycott of the 1968 Olympic Games.
The shows include some of the all-time greats in American track and field, including Dick Fosbury, Bob Beamon, Al Oerter and Bob Seagren. Amazingly, both Fosbury and Oerter barely qualified for the Olympic team, but both went on to collect gold medals in Mexico City. The same cannot be said of Billy Mills, who failed to qualify for the American team in the 10,000 meters and was unable to defend the Olympic title he won in 1964 in Tokyo. One other athlete who made his mark in that meet was a teenager Jim called 'Martin' Liquori.
