Ekaterina Gordeeva and Sergei Grinkov led a Soviet 1-2-3 sweep of the pairs event Tuesday night at the World Figure Skating Championships. To toreador music from Bizet's "Carmen," the 16-year-old Gordeeva played the fluttering sparrow to the steady power of her 21-year-old partner with feather-light lifts and spins. Fast, stylish footwork and gestures timed almost perfectly together completed the formula that has won them one Olympic and two world titles.

Ekaterina Gordeeva and Sergei Grinkov stirred memories by winning the pairs title Wednesday and leading a Russian sweep of all three medals in the European Figure Skating Championships at Copenhagen. Gordeeva and Grinkov skated with harmony and grace to Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" in a style reminiscent of the night in Calgary in 1988 when they performed to Chopin and Mendelssohn and won the Olympic gold medal.

Last season, Scott Hamilton missed the final 10 performances of "Stars on Ice," the show he co-created, when his testicular cancer was diagnosed. This season, with the cancer in remission, Hamilton intends to skate every performance on the show's 57-city tour. Presumably, the 1984 Olympic champion is taking it easy, right? Wrong. In this year's 12th edition, which stops at the Arrowhead Pond of Anaheim on Saturday, Hamilton skates more than he has in any previous show.

The difference between art and sport is not a hot topic in the stands at Stars on Ice shows. Why should it be, when there are genuine champions to celebrate? But for those who want to see new facets of figure skating emerge--see its choreography evolve, its impact deepen--there's always a lot to ponder.

If you're the least bit nervous about seeing your children hurt, there are three sports you should never let them do. There's football. There's boxing. Then there's pairs figure skating. I'm not kidding. You might think a figure skater can be injured only if he or she trips over a sequin, but that's not true for the pairs. If you have any doubt about that, remember that the death spiral is one of the safest elements they're required to perform. That's the reason so few skaters compete in pairs.

In a region where the word "development" is usually uttered with contempt, builder Stephen Fish has found an unlikely ally in Olympic skating superstar Oksana Baiul. With the help of the Ukranian-born Baiul and her reputation, Fish has persuaded this town's approximately 25,000 citizens to allow him to do what under ordinary circumstances would be unthinkable--build a giant ice-skating complex.

Tara Lipinski ties several yard-long rubber bands around a medicine ball, then attaches the other ends to her waist, shoulders, hands and feet. She rolls around on the ball like an astronaut floating in zero gravity, all the while talking nonstop about whatever pops into her head. The exercise is therapeutic, helping the 17-year-old Lipinski deal with an aching hip. It also looks like fun, which is exactly what should be expected from the 1998 Olympic figure skating champion.
