Among the participants in the Mixed Pairs on Saturday were, left, Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates, playing with world champion Sharon Osberg, both from the USA, and Antoine Bernheim, president of the Generali Group, playing with Blandine de Heredia,
French women's title holder.

The final qualifying session of the Mixed Pairs is scheduled for this morning, and with 182 pairs going through to the final, the players on the edge will have an extra incentive to play well.

The leaders after two qualifying sessions were bunched at the top. In front with 63.00% were Chantal Haemmerli of Switzerland, playing with Italy's Alfredo Versace. Not far behind were Jill Meyers and Zia Mahmood, representing the USA with 62.39%. Right on their heels, only .01% behind them were Danuta Hocheker and Miroslaw Cichoki of Poland. In fourth place were the German-American duo of Sabine Auken and George Jacobs, with 61.51%. Defending Mixed Pairs champion Jeff Meckstroth, playing with a new partner this time (Janice Seamon-Molson), is still in contention in 10th place.

The Mixed Pairs attracted 481 pairs.
