The slide down figure skating's rankings for the U.S. pairs team of Natasha Kuchiki and Todd Sand was as fast as the climb.

He said Nicks will continue to coach them.

It has been a year that Jenny Meno is sure to remember. In January, the 21-year-old Costa Mesa resident and her partner, Scott Wendland, 27, captured a silver medal in the pairs competition at the U.S. Figure Skating Championship in Orlando. A month later, the pair finished 11th at the Winter Olympics in Albertville, France. Then, in late March, they capped their second season of international competition by placing 11th at the World Figure Skating Championships in Oakland.

By the time they get on the ice during the Olympics, they usually look like a match made in heaven. They glide and flow. They toe loop and double axel as one. It's a union of majesty and magic. Even a casual observer, who has never even strapped on a skate, figures it must take a lot of hard work to make anything look that easy. But success in pairs figure skating requires a good bit of luck, too. With desire, discipline and direction, a talented solo skater can push the edge of potential.

For some people, coaching Christopher Bowman, who calls himself "a member of the After 11 figure skating club," would be a full load. But John Nicks, who accepted the challenge of restoring Bowman to his national championship form of 1989 three weeks ago, apparently has not neglected his pairs teams at Costa Mesa. Defending national champions Natasha Kuchiki of Canoga Park and Todd Sand of Costa Mesa skated a clean original program Wednesday night in the Orlando Arena for first place in the U.S.

When asked by a reporter to assess the performance of her world-champion skaters Sunday night, Tamara Moskvina, the peerless pairs coach from St. Petersburg, Russia, turned the question around. "You saw the program," she said. "Did you like it?" The reporter answered affirmatively. "So, I agree with you," she said.

There were no surprises in the compulsory phase of the ice dance competition Wednesday during the World Figure Skating Championships, which was no surprise. The most predictable of the sport's divisions, ice dancing seldom results in an upset. There is even less chance of one this year because of the withdrawal of the defending champions and silver medalists at last month's Winter Olympics, France's brother-sister team of Isabelle and Paul Duchesnay.
