Robin Cousins, winner of more than 20 international figure skating competitions, among them the 1980 Olympic gold medal in Lake Placid, vividly remembers his struggling days, before trophies and glory, when success actually ranked above survival on his priority list. In 1974, Cousins chose between his family and skating, his family finishing a close second. He moved from his home in Birmingham, England, to London, alone at 17, and lived there for two years, sharing his $14-a-week apartment with a dream.

There is little question that a U.S. woman will be favored to win the gold medal in figure skating at the 1992 Winter Olympics in Albertville, France. The question: Which one?

The small rink, nestled amid pines beside Lake Arrowhead, had served as an unlikely mecca for skaters from around the world, turning out champions for the better part of three decades. Michelle Kwan trained there, as did Robin Cousins, Nicole Bobek, Chen Lu and Surya Bonaly. Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo, the gold medal pair from the 2010 Winter Olympics, made it their home base.

The San Diego Nomads dropped a 2-1 decision to the California Emperors in Redlands Saturday night despite taking an early 1-0 lead. The Nomads went up three minutes into the game when Steve Black pounced on a loose ball in front of the net and kicked it in. But a minute and a half later, the Emperors tied the game when Kurt Allan put one into the upper-left corner from 40 yards out. Mahntie Reeves closed the scoring with a goal in the game's 56th minute for California.
