To find Viktor Petrenko, look for the largest collection of neon signs in this city, perhaps in this world, and drive in the opposite direction. Take the I-95 north until the only lights you see are those from oncoming cars and the signs warn, "Freeway Ends." Even though the Santa Fe Ice Rink and bowling alley are only about 12 miles from the Golden Nugget, the piece of desert on which they are located might as well be the end of the earth as far as most visitors to Las Vegas are concerned.

Olympic champion Viktor Petrenko, skating to music from Verdi operas, won the men's title for the third time Thursday night in the European Figure Skating Championships at Copenhagen. On a night when his skating failed to measure up to his high standards, Petrenko nevertheless won a spot on the Ukrainian team for next month's Winter Olympics at Lillehammer, Norway. Viacheslav Zagorodniuk of Ukraine was second and Russia's Alexei Urmanov was third.

Figure skating fans who can't make the trip to next February's Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway, take note: Tonight's performance of the Tour of World Figure Skating Champions, at the new Anaheim Arena, will provide an unofficial preview of the Winter Games. Because of a 1992 ruling by the International Skating Union, professional skaters are now allowed to apply once for reinstatement as amateurs, paving the way for a return to Olympic competition years after their first time around.
