The main event

Traditionally, the premier event of the Winter Olympic Games, the women's figure skating competition begins Tuesday with the short program. Despite and up and down year and the fact that she is without a coach, American Michelle Kwan is the favorite for the gold. But she'll face competition from a tough field, featuring Russians Irina Slutskaya and Maria Butyrskaya.
