DOG ASIDE:

The 1986 World Figure Skating Championships were held in Geneva, Switzerland from March 18th to 23rd….where at the event…which was sanctioned by the International Skating Union (ISU)….medals were awarded in men’s singles, ladies’ singles, pair skating, and ice dancing.

The ISU Representative was Josef Dědič (Czechoslovakia), and the ISU Technical Delegate was Elemér Terták (Hungary)….as the Soviet judge Natalia Danilenko was suspended for ignoring a new rule requiring mandatory deductions of 0.1 for falls….when she gave USSR Alexandr Fadeev a score of 5.9 after he fell twice, instead of a maximum of 5.8. 

This particular men’s competition featured three really great skaters in USA Brian Boitano (Gold)…..CAN Brian Orser (Silver)…..and USSR Alexandr Fadeev…..which for any fan of figure skating is MUST SEE TV!!!
