'98 OLYMPIC SKATING FIELD ON THIN ICE?
Published March 27, 1995
The deadline for figure skaters to apply for reinstatement of their eligibility for the Int'l Skating Union (ISU) is this Saturday. And, what happens as the deadline nears "may may have a lot to do with how the figure skating shapes up" at the '98 Winter Games in Nagano. To "help sort out the situation," the ISU is "trying to persuade" Olympic gold medal winner Oksana Baiul to apply for reinstatement. If she fails to apply, it would leave the ISU without a "big-name women's star," possibly forcing the federation to "throw open" the Nagano Games to all skaters (Jody Meacham, SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 3/36).
