I am Pasha. Remember me? Maybe you have forgotten because I haven't written since Nagano, on the day before my partner, Evgeny Platov, and I won our second ice dance gold medal. No one ever did that before, not even Torvill and Dean. Can you imagine? I have been very busy since. There was the move to Los Angeles, my breakup with Evgeny and, of course, the fire at my apartment. I know what you must be thinking, but it wasn't my fault. I wasn't even there when the seven fire trucks came.

We interrupt this Olympic ice dance competition--no, not to wake the judges snoozing through the Americans' program--for a quick review of how Pasha Grishuk plans to spend Tuesday morning in Nagano after she wins the gold medal Monday night. "On Feb. 17," she proposes, "every cute guy comes to the village and we make them stand in a line. Put the cutest on the right side and the not-so-cutest at the left." Then, Grishuk says, she can pick out her date for the evening.

By decree of the international coalition of ice dancing judges, in a decision made months ago--possibly years ago--Pasha Grishuk and Evgeny Platov of Russia repeated as Olympic champions Monday night. This being a newspaper, however, the only development truly worth reporting is how the rest of ice dancing field in Nagano felt about it. A quick sampling of opinion: * Silver medalist Anjelika Krylova of Russia: "All I can say is the public liked us better. I think we had a better program overall."

Performing a sexy rumba filled with quick steps and flowing spins, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean of Britain rekindled memories of a decade ago, when they redefined the event at the Sarajevo Games. They received two perfect 6.0 marks for presentation, from Britain and Ukraine, and set up a three-way contest for gold tonight in the free dance.

Yes, America, there is more to the Winter Olympic figure skating competition than Tonya vs. Nancy. A brief look: MEN This will be the first time that two Olympic figure skating champions have faced one another. The United States' Brian Boitano won in 1988, Ukraine's Viktor Petrenko in 1992, and both enjoyed the spoils as professionals before the International Skating Union passed a rule enabling them to return to serious competition.

Encouraged for years to display more emotion, Todd Sand complied Tuesday night at figure skating's world championships in the Edmonton Coliseum. Unfortunately, he did it after the short program that he skated with partner Jenni Meno in the pairs competition, punching a hole in a wall in a corridor off the ice. "I'm just happy it wasn't the coach he hit," said John Nicks, who coaches Meno and Sand in Costa Mesa. Sand was upset because he double-footed his landing in a side-by-side double axel.

Canadian Myriam Bedard made history Friday in the women's 15-kilometer biathlon, becoming the first Olympic champion from North America. Biathlon combines cross-country skiing and target shooting. Bedard, who finished third in the 1992 Olympics, missed only two targets on the shooting range and skied the tough course in 52 minutes 6.6 seconds. Anne Briand of France was second. She skied 46.7 seconds slower than Bedard and had three misses.
