LOS ANGELES - Michael Weiss was certain he wanted to skate his long program to music by Puccini during this Olympic season. But he was just as certain he didn't want to finish up like Mimi, Tosca, Madame Butterfly or any other tragic character from one of the Italian's famed operas. "We've been focusing on not only do I not die at the end, but I build," said Weiss, who hopes to win his third national title this week in the U.S. Figure Skating Championships. Weiss is concentrating on consistent effort.

"I can skate like I did in qualifying." In qualifying, Plushenko was mesmerizing. Every jump was perfect, every step was perfect.
