TRYING TO DISTINGUISH THE REAL COMPETITIONS IN SKATING
Published February 6, 1995
"It has become increasingly difficult to distinguish the real championships [in figure skating] from the myriad skatefests already held this season," writes Mark Starr in the current issue of NEWSWEEK. The '95 Nationals, which takes place this week in Providence, RI, follows the recent U.S. Open, North American Open Skating Championships, Ice Wars, Challenge of Champions, Gold Challenge and Rock 'n' Roll Skating Championships. Once the "premier event on the skating calendar," the Nationals remain "the one path to future Olympic glory." But they are being "obscured" by a made-for-TV competitions featuring the same skaters in a a variety of formats. Evy Scotvold, coach of Nancy Kerrigan and Paul Wylie: "Right now it's somewhere between wrestling and American Gladiators" (NEWSWEEK, 2/13 issue).
