Thirteen-year-old Natasha Kuchiki will be allowed to compete in next month's World Figure Skating Championships, the International Skating Union said today. An ISU rule prohibits skaters younger than 14 from participating in the world championships.

Neither was particularly impressed by the quality of skating on a night when there were more spills than thrills. It was much different than four years ago, when Boitano had to skate a virtually flawless performance in order to beat Orser.
