Extractions: Barry Mittan Russia's Alexander Abt has had so many injuries that you'd think a black cloud was hanging over his head. His career started auspiciously with a silver medal at the 1991 World Junior Championships and he was a strong contender at the Russian Nationals starting the next year, coming in fourth in both 1993 and 1994. But the injury bug started biting in 1995 when he injured his hip and couldn't compete at Europeans. The next year, Abt wrecked his right knee at the NHK Trophy, missing the remainder of the season as he recovered from knee surgery. But the worst was yet to come. While skating in a Russian team exhibition in Mexico City in August 1996, Abt fell awkwardly coming down from a jump and crashed into the barrier with his leg twisted the wrong way and his blade imbedded in his right thigh. A broken leg and severely torn muscles required surgery which kept him in a Mexican hospital for two weeks as doctors debated whether he would ever walk again, much less skate. But Abt proved them wrong, although he was completely off the ice for six months. He was forced to relearn all his jumps before he could compete again, but returned in time for Russian Nationals, finishing back in the pack. Abt performed well for the next few seasons, but then had to go under the knife again in 1998 to rebuild his left knee, again missing the Russian Nationals and failing to make the World team. Last year, he underwent more surgery; to remove a cyst from his sinuses after a sinus infection at the 2002 Europeans had left him so weak that he collapsed in the kiss and cry.

Extractions: BRATISLAVA, Slovakia - - French world champions Marina Anissina and Gwendal Peizerat unexpectedly tied their Italian rivals Tuesday after the compulsory portion of ice dancing at the European figure skating championship. After the French took the opening dance, the Westminster waltz, the Italian pair of Barbara Fusar Poli and Maurizio Margaglio went ahead in the second, the Silver samba. The decision was tight - the French had four firsts of the seven-judge panel on the opening dance and the Italians had four first-place votes on the second. Both teams are unbeaten this season with three victories apiece, having avoided each other on the Grand Prix circuit. They enter Thursday's original dance, worth 30 percent, tied. The final free dance Friday is worth 50 percent. At the world championships in Nice, France, last March, the French stumbled during the original dance and had to rally during the free dance to beat the Italians, who were leading after the compulsories and original.
