Jim Hulick, who coached Kristi Yamaguchi and Rudi Galindo to the national championship in pairs figure skating this year, died of cancer at 38 Sunday night in a West Covina hospital. Hulick coached the pair for the last time at the prestigious NHK championships 16 days ago in Kobi, Japan, where they finished fourth. Complaining of fatigue, Hulick checked into the hospital upon his return. "It always seemed like he blocked out his sickness for us," Galindo said Monday from his home in San Jose.

As the only person competing in pairs and singles at figure skating's highest level, Kristi Yamaguchi's schedule was so frantic during major competitions that, by the end of the week, she literally could not stay on her feet. Her determination resulted in remarkable achievements, particularly in pairs. She and partner Rudy Galindo, both from the Bay Area, won the world junior championship in 1988 and national senior championships in 1989 and 1990.

Hers is the portrait of an All-American family. Grandfather George was a U.S. Army infantry officer during World War II. Dad Jim is a dentist. Mom Carole is a medical secretary. Brother Brett plays varsity basketball. Sister Lori is a world champion baton twirler. And itsy-bitsy, pony-tailed Kristi is a world champion figure skater, favored today to become Olympic champion as well. Yet this is not the complete picture of the Yamaguchi family of Fremont, Calif.

It must have been amusing for Irina Rodnina to hear Soviet pairs skater Ekaterina Gordeeva say at Halifax, Canada, at the recent World Championships that she is losing her motivation after winning four world titles and an Olympic gold medal. Outlasting one pairs partner before going on to another, Rodnina won 10 world championships and three Olympic gold medals for the Soviet Union before retiring in 1980.

He briefly changed the spelling of his first name from Rudy to Rudi so that it would match that of his figure skating pairs partner, Kristi Yamaguchi, and said that he would "check into a mental institution" if she ever left him. His costumes are often described as effeminate. His closet is filled with velvet and sequins. That's the same closet he came out of four years ago, when he disclosed his homosexuality. Rudy Galindo is one of the toughest men I've ever met.

Those concerned that the proposed renovation of the Coliseum will eliminate the track, thus eliminating Los Angeles from consideration for major meets, shouldn't despair. One plan under consideration would spare the track, although it would be hidden under retractable seating during the football season. Another plan would remove the track but allow for a temporary track for significant meets. Los Angeles is bidding for the 1992 Olympic trials and the 1995 World Championships.
