Russia is waking up to another success at the Winter Olympics Tuesday morning after figure skaters Tatyana Navka and Roman Kostomarov won the ice dancing title
Russia is waking up to another success at the Winter Olympics Tuesday morning after figure skaters Tatyana Navka and Roman Kostomarov won the ice dancing title. The defending world champions won gold late on Monday with an exciting performance with stunning choreography to the Carmen Suite and an overall score of 200.64. It meant that Russia's figure skaters had achieved a hat trick of gold medals in the pairs, men's and dance. Tanith Belbin and partner Ben Agosto (196.06) took the silver for the United States, the first U.S. figure skating medal in Turin, just ahead of Yelena Grushina and Ruslan Goncharov (195.85) from Ukraine, who finished with the bronze. The winners told a news conference that Russia could hope for all four figure-skating titles at the Olympics, despite the doubts of critics, as they said 2005 World Champion Irina Slutskaya was the favorite in the women's competition, which starts on Tuesday. "Slutskaya is the best figure skater in the world and she will be Olympic champion," Navka said. "We [Russians] win not because we are Russian, but because we are strong." The new champions were full of praise for their fans in the arena, saying that their support had helped them achieve victory. The remaining Russian pairs, Oksana Domnina and Maxim Shabalin, and Olympic debutants Yana Khokhlova and Sergei Novitsky, finished 9th and 12th, respectively. Four teams - Germany, Austria, the United States, and Russia - had won seven golds each after day 10 of the Olympic competition
