Jill Trenary of the United States held a slight lead over Claudia Leistner of West Germany and Midori Ito of Japan following the women's original program today at the World Figure Skating Championships. After the original program, which counts 30%, Trenary went into first ahead of Leistner, who held the lead after the compulsory figures, worth 20%. Ito bounded into third from sixth and made Saturday's free-skating final a winner-take-all showdown.

Last year at this time, the skaters of Stars on Ice were mourning the death of cast member Sergei Grinkov, who collapsed and died of a heart attack at age 28 in 1995 while rehearsing for the show's opening night. This season, troupe members--among them co-founder Scott Hamilton, Kristi Yamaguchi, Paul Wylie and Kurt Browning--are welcoming back Grinkov's widow, Ekaterina "Katia" Gordeeva.

Midori Ito of Japan all but conceded her women's title today as American Jill Trenary triumphed in the last compulsory figures to be staged at the World Figure Skating Championships. Trenary won the section with Ito a lowly 10th, and the Japanese now needs more than her vaunted jumping ability to retain the crown. Ito quickly fled the figures arena after her second figure, which was a catastrophe.

Jill Trenary, one of the last figure skaters from an era when grace was as valued as athleticism, announced Friday that she is retiring from amateur competition. Trenary, 23, won her third national title and the world championship in 1990, but has since suffered setbacks that made it improbable that she would earn a place on the U.S. Olympic team in February at Albertville, France. She was fourth in 1988 at Calgary.

It's time to get serious, real serious, for Jill Trenary. Trenary, the 1987 national champion, barely missed a medal at the Calgary Olympics, finishing fourth. With all three medalists gone professional, Trenary not only is the top-rated American woman figure skater, but in line for the world championship, as well. This week, Trenary goes after her second crown in the U.S. Figure Skating Championships--she also finished second to Debi Thomas in the 1988 nationals and was fifth in the worlds.

U.S. champion Jill Trenary was released from Centinela Hospital Medical Center after suffering bruises and a slight concussion in a figure skating exhibition Sunday at the Forum.

No decision had been made as of Sunday night as to whether she will continue on the 15-city tour, which resumes tonight at Salt Lake City.

Jill Trenary, three-time U.S. national champion and defending world champion, will remain in competitive figure skating through the 1992 Winter Olympics, she announced Thursday. There was speculation that Trenary, 22, might retire to join a professional ice show, but she said at a news conference that she wants a chance to win an Olympic medal. She was fourth in the 1988 Winter Games at Calgary.

Jill Trenary realized it was a mistake to get too comfortable in the U.S. Winter Olympic uniform that she modeled here Thursday for participants in the Olympic Congress of the USA. When the day was over, she would have to return it to the manufacturers, and there is no guarantee that she will get it back when the United States selects its figure skaters next January for the Games a month later in Albertville, France.

For those who consider figure skating to be an elitist winter sport, consider this: In May and June, 1988, ticket demand for the annual Tour of World Figure Skating Champions was second only to Michael Jackson's tour. Jackson isn't on the road this year, but the skaters are still going strong.

Tonya Harding's victory Saturday at the national championships is figure skating's version of a commoner becoming queen. The idea of figure skating as a sport for the rich is a misconception. More often than not, parents of successful skaters are middle-class. They are hard-pressed to raise the $30,000 or so a year that it costs to keep their children at the sport's highest level. But once those children become champions, they are treated like royalty.

World figure-skating champion Jill Trenary said today that she will remain an amateur with a goal of winning a gold medal in the 1992 Olympics. "Somebody once told me it's not the things you do in your life that you regret, it's the things you don't do," Trenary said during a news conference at the Broadmoor Hotel. "So, with that in mind and after a lot of thought, I've decided to stay in until the '92 Olympics in Albertville (France)." Trenary, 22, holds the 1990 world and U.S.
