The last time Soviets or Russians didn't win the pairs title was in 1960, when Canadians Barbara Wagner and Robert Paul finished with the gold medal in Squaw Valley. Since then, led by legendary pairs skaters such as the Protopopovs, Irina Rodnina, Ekaterina Gordeeva and Sergei Grinkov and Natalia Mishkutenok and Artur Dmitriev, the gold medal has traveled only between Moscow and St. Petersburg. But the streak could end tonight, and again it's a pair from Canada that could win.

David Pelletier wants to get back to a normal life, one without TV cameras continually thrust in his face and reporters analyzing his every word. That's not likely to happen for a while. Certainly not tonight. Pelletier and partner Jamie Sale will get their duplicate pairs figure skating gold medals tonight at the Salt Lake Ice Center, after the original dance phase of the ice dancing competition.

The Canadian skaters whose loss to a Russian duo set off the biggest judging scandal in Winter Olympics history got their gold medal after all Friday, and the judge at the center of the furor was suspended. The extraordinary deal awarding Canadians David Pelletier and Jamie Sale the gold capped a furious weeklong debate that had engulfed the Olympics and prompted the sort of complaints about judging that used to be heard during the Cold War. "We're happy that justice was done," Pelletier said.

In a transaction completed on a warped and rickety pulpit Friday, the Olympic ideal was formally sold. The buyers were public opinion, network television and jingoism. The price was justice. The cost was integrity. The new owners will move in as soon as they can evict those awful Russians. Two gold medals, for an event that had earlier possessed a defined winner and runner-up. Two more gold medals than pieces of clear evidence to support them. Two more gold medals than stomach muscles in the people who made the decision.

A Salt Lake Winter Olympic scandal involving a controversial figure skating decision, an internal investigation by the International Skating Union and a Chinese judge suddenly and mysteriously taking ill? How quaint. No under-the-table freebies? No behind-closed-door gratuities? Just an old-fashioned squabble over who really won the pairs gold medal, coupled with accusations of political back-scratching and bloc voting? It's enough to make you misty-eyed, and you don't even have to be Canadian.

Jamie Sale and David Pelletier of Canada, worn out by the whirlwind that followed their elevation to co-gold medalists with their Russian rivals at the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics, won't defend their world pairs figure skating title. Sale and Pelletier didn't have time to prepare for the March 15-24 World Championships at Nagano, Japan, because of "the events of the last two weeks," according to a statement from Skate Canada.
