    1962 World Championships - Questions

    Does anyone know why the Soviet Union did not participate in the 1962 World Championships that were held in the United States (Colorado Springs)? Was it simply a case where the Soviets did not participate because of the costs involved, or was it the result of some type of political boycott (similar to the 1980 and 1984 summer Olympics)?

    In retaliation for the politically motivated boycott by the Canadians and Americans in 1957 at the Moscow WC (boycotted because of Soviet involvement in Hungary), the Soviet Union, Czechoslovakia and other communist countries (Hungary, Poland, East Germany, Yugoslavia, Romania) refused to participate in the 1962 WC at Colorado Springs, citing the American government's refusal to grant entry visas to East Germany's players and team management.

    The U.S. government and its NATO allies refused to recognise East Germany as a legitimate country and government because of the building of the Berlin Wall.

    The 1962 WC tournament was a financial disaster (poor attendance) as a result of the non-participation by the USSR and Czechoslovakia. Eight teams played in Pool A (Sweden, Canada, USA, Finland, Norway, West Germany, Switzerland and Great Britain) while 6 other countries played in the lesser Pool B (Japan, Austria, France, Holland, Australia and Denmark).

    Thank you very much for the information. I didn't think that financial factors explained the Soviets' absence, as they often toured North America during the late 1950s and 1960s.

    Roopuck, I wish I could help you with better information, but I only have partial statistics on Australia from the 1962 WC. It is rather difficult trying to find any kind of detailed facts on Pool B games, especially those played in the 1950's and 1960's.

    I can only account for 11 of the 13 goals scored by Australia in the 1962 tournament. Kevin Harris, John Thomas, Edward Mustar and Peter Parrott all scored 2 goals each, while Kenneth Wellman, Victor Mansted and Russell Jones scored one goal each.

    The 1962 roster:

    Goalies: Peter Cavanagh, Bruce Roderick.
    Defence: Russell Jones, Anthony Martyr, Kenneth Wellman (Capt.), John Purcell.
    Forwards: Barry Bourke, Robin Dewhurst, Kevin Harris, Victor Mansted, John Thomas, Ronald Amess, Edward Mustar, William Renton, Peter Parrott, Gary Beyko, Gary Owen.

    Coach: Bud MacEachern
    Manager: Russell W. Carson

    The Australian team arrived in Denver on March 6, played their first game on March 8 against Netherlands, losing to Holland by 6:4 (4:1, 1:1, 1:2).

    They next played March 10 in Colorado Springs, losing to Austria 17:0 (4:0, 8:0, 5:0).

    On March 12 in Denver, lost to Japan 13:2 (3:1, 7:1, 3:0).
    On March 13 in Colorado Springs, lost to France 13:1 (6:0, 5:0, 2:1). This game was rather chippy, featuring 30 penalties called.

    In their final game on March 15 in Denver, Australia won their first international game in history, defeating Denmark 6:2 (2:2, 4:0, 0:0).

    Here is the boxscore from that historic result:

    "By Soviet standards I'd always been considered an offensive centerman. Phil Esposito and Bobby Clarke forced me to play a more defensive style. The experience made me a better all around player," -Vladimir Petrov commenting after the 1972 Summit Series
