<B>Good fortune turns to gold for Yagudin </B><BR> <BR>FROM ANGELA COURT IN LAUSANNE <BR>The Times<BR> <BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>ALEXEI YAGUDIN, from Russia, might have won over the judges when he took his third European title here last night, but if the crowd had been in control of the result they would have awarded the gold medal to his compatriot, Alexander Abt. <BR>Yagudin, 21, opened his routine, to the soundtrack of The Man in the Iron Mask, with a quadruple toe loop on which he stumbled badly. A second attempt resulted in a clean landing and he went on to pull off two jump combinations consisting of a triple axel and a triple salchow, and a triple axel and a triple toe loop plus a triple lutz and a triple flip. However, two attempts at a triple loop were reduced to doubles and the overall performance lacked the spark of Tuesday’s short programme. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><BR> <BR><A HREF="http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/0,,4-2002029819,00.html" TARGET=_blank><B>more...</B></A>

My bet is still on Slutskaya. She has the stamina for the long program. Butyrskaya's long programs frequently derail her.

Time to recapture that flying feeling
by ISMENE BROWN for the Daily Telegraph

The first description of skating in Britain grabbed for a metaphor. In 12th-century London, when the swampy banks of the Thames froze, the monk William Fitzstephen watched young men strap cow bones under their boots and "slide as swiftly as a bird flyeth". The amazement in his tone is precisely ice-skating's golden sell.

Fantasy
by DONALD HUTERA for the Times
published: January 22, 2007

Dreams, both sleep-induced and wide-awake, are the nominal impetus behind the latest frozen-floored extravaganza from Holiday on Ice. Fantasy is the conceptual hook upon which the artistic director Anthony van Laast and company hang two glossy, glittery acts packed with occasionally crass and usually kitsch escapist spectacle.
