As figure skating's world turned Wednesday, the talk was of pairs. Off the ice, the waitress and the truck driver, Calla Urbanski and Rocky Marval, reunited. On the ice, Jenni Meno and Todd Sand, proved equally inseparable.

Jenni Meno and Todd Sand decided to prepare for the Winter Olympics the old-fashioned way. Practice, practice, practice. The Aliso Viejo couple could have hit the road, skating in far-flung competitions (which seem to be on television every weekend). Instead, they moved down the mountain from last season's training venue at Lake Arrowhead, returned to Orange County and limited their Olympic tuneup to one international competition. "We felt like last year we traveled too much," Meno said.

The slide down figure skating's rankings for the U.S. pairs team of Natasha Kuchiki and Todd Sand was as fast as the climb. But it came to an abrupt halt Wednesday, when Sand said that he and Kuchiki no longer are partners. Sand said that the pairs team of Jenni Meno and Scott Wendland, who also train under Coach John Nicks at Costa Mesa's Ice Capades Chalet, has separated as well and that Sand has paired with Meno. He said Nicks will continue to coach them.

The hand-scrawled sign was long on sentiment if short on spelling acumen, one fan's way of sending Jenni Meno and Todd Sand a Valentine's Day greeting Friday night. ROMEO-JULIETTE KEN-BARBIE TODD-JENNIE What do these three famous duos have in common today? None of them has won four U.S. pairs skating championships in a row. Meno and Sand had their reign halted at three by perennial runners-up Kyoko Ina and Jason Dungjen--and their own faulty skating.

Todd Sand took another swing Wednesday night, but this one was in exultation instead of at a wall. Although he would not know it until later, he and his partner, Jenni Meno, had just completed a long program that would earn them their second consecutive bronze medal in pairs at figure skating's world championships. All he knew at the time was that he had vindicated himself for the night before, when he fell on a relatively easy double axel and almost cost he and his wife a chance for a medal.

As she sat there, dazed and confused about what had just transpired on the Nashville Arena ice Wednesday night, Jenni Meno wore the stunned, goggle-eyed look of someone who had just been dropped on her head. Which is precisely what had happened moments earlier, when the best pairs skating team in the United States fell apart on the final element of its short program, a simple maneuver melodramatically titled "the death spiral."

The precedent set in a closed-door committee meeting late Friday night at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships made it perfectly clear: Nothing short of a collision with a runaway Zamboni today is likely to keep Tara Lipinski off the U.S. Olympic team. On the eve of the women's long program, the pairs team of Jenni Meno and Todd Sand qualified for the Olympics without skating one second of their planned long program.

The question had to be asked, worded delicately, posed as politely as proper figure skating decorum decrees. "So," Jenni Meno was asked, "do you thank your husband when he doesn't drop you on your head?" Meno blushed and her husband, Todd Sand, laughed. A good sign, this, coming four weeks after their ill-fated short program at the U.S. national championships, which carried the subtitle Crashville in Nashville. "I'm not going to live that one down," Sand mused.

Todd Sand has been grabbing his partner by the hand, swinging her round and round and tossing her to and fro for a good three years now, but something in the air is different today. Namely his partner, Jenni Meno. Soon to be known in polite society as Mrs. Todd Sand. That's the fiancee up there, Sand has to remind himself as the best U.S. figure skating pair whips through another routine and gravity begins to take its toll on Meno. Here comes the bride.
