In 2000 Danielle Hartsell shattered her kneecap. It took surgery and lots of hardware to put the knee back together. In 2001 Steve Hartsell cracked open his head. It took 12 stitches to put the head back together. Now it's 2002 and the Hartsells, sister and brother, are together at Staples Center, crossing their fingers, making sure the bad-luck clothes are in another closet and aiming for an Olympic spot as one of two figure skating pairs the U.S. will send to Salt Lake City.

Kyoko Ina and John Zimmerman smiled politely. Zimmerman raised one fist. The celebration of a U.S. Figure Skating national pairs championship, their third in a row, was an occasion for some enthusiasm but not for overwhelming joy. Not now, not yet. The goal is something. An Olympic medal.

The top pairs skaters in the country performed their "Ode to the Salt Lake Olympic Bid Committee" Friday night at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships, stumbling and crashing in full public view, turning what should have been a crowning moment into a humbling struggle for survival.

They were the forgotten medalists of the 1998 U.S. Figure Skating Championships, winning the bronze in Philadelphia but being left behind on the road to Nagano. Danielle and Steve Hartsell picked the wrong year to finish third. Because of circumstances beyond their control--basically, a lackluster showing by their American counterparts at the 1998 world championships--the United States was limited to two berths in the Olympic pairs competition in Japan.

Steve Hartsell was courageous enough to team with his sister, Danielle, and skate the best short program of the pairs competition a day after he suffered a 12-stitch cut in the back of his head during a practice mishap. But Hartsell wasn't brave enough to look up at the FleetCenter scoreboard Friday to see the marks he and his sister--the 1999 U.S. champions--received for their mistake-ridden long program.

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.

There was no reason to think Stephanie Kalesavich and Aaron Parchem would be a dream pair. Kalesavich was a tiny tot, barely 5 feet tall, a 15-year-old with a little voice and big dreams. Parchem was a 22-year-old college student, 5-10, a confident, outgoing adult.

The Skate Canada staredown between Olympic gold medal favorites Irina Slutskaya and Michelle Kwan fizzled Friday, when both women blinked. After both botched their combination jumps in their short programs, Sarah Hughes breezed through to take the lead into tonight's free skate final at Saskatchewan Place, the first time the 16-year-old has led a competition after the short program and the second time she has led Kwan.
