Naomi Lang stood on the field in Rice-Eccles Stadium, fighting tears as members of Utah's five Native American tribes danced and sang in front of her during the opening ceremony for the 2002 Winter Olympics. What she saw transported her back to a childhood of eating Indian fry bread and watching the stomp dance and the grass dance performed by members of her tribe, the Karuk, in Northern California. Lang's ice-dance partner, Peter Tchernyshev, sat with members of the U.S.

Being in first place after Tuesday's compulsory dances at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships felt infinitely better to Naomi Lang than the alternative: being off her feet. Doctors initially attributed the pain in her left foot to tendinitis and recommended a cast, leading Lang and partner Peter Tchernyshev to withdraw from the Grand Prix series. Tests found a cyst on her Achilles' tendon that will eventually need surgery, and she was cleared to compete for a fifth consecutive ice dance title.

Lang, of Allegan, Mich., and Tchernyshev, a transplanted Russian who became an American citizen last year, drew the small crowd to its feet with their moves choreographed to the original dance, the Spanish Medley.

Skating noticeably faster and with more flair than their competitors, Naomi Lang and Peter Tchernyshev easily waltzed and glided their way into first place after the first round of ice dancing competition at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships on Wednesday night at Staples Center. Lang and Tchernyshev, three-time defending champions, weren't flawless but were the leaders in both rounds of compulsories. All the couples first skated the Ravensburger waltz and then the blues.

Rena Inoue had five stitches in her left knee, souvenir of a crash into the boards while landing a throw triple loop, and a grimace on her face. But after a series of terrible and often terrifying performances scrambled the standings Friday, she and her partner, John Baldwin Jr., had a bronze medal at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships and a berth at the World Championships. That made the Santa Monica couple's pain more bearable.

Todd Eldredge seemed puzzled to be asked why he honored his commitment to compete in the Four Continents figure skating competition at the Delta Center, a test event for the 2002 Winter Olympics. U.S. champions Timothy Goebel and Michelle Kwan chose instead to prepare for next week's Grand Prix final in Tokyo, where the top man, woman, pair and dance team will each earn $50,000.

Michael Weiss missed most of the figure skating season because of a broken bone in his foot. In his return, the two-time defending U.S. men's champion picked up where he left off. Weiss skated an emotive but safe short program Thursday to win the first phase of the U.S. men's championships. Five-time champion Todd Eldredge was second, despite failing to complete his required combination jump, and Timothy Goebel was third after an erratic performance.
