MINNEAPOLIS -- When he won the national title a year ago, Todd Eldredge seemed like a caretaker king, keeping the throne warm for the return of 1989 champion Christopher Bowman.When he won it again yesterday afternoon, Eldredge seemed lord and master of his domain, the men's competition at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships.With a freestyle long program that overwhelmed Bowman's in technical difficulty and nearly matched it in artistry, Eldredge persuaded any remaining skeptics that his 1990 triumph was not just a product of the injury that sidelined Bowman midway through last year's championships.

NAGANO, Japan -- The way it looks now, Todd Eldredge will not attempt a quadruple jump in his long program, even if it costs him the Olympic gold medal.His decision would run contrary to the "go-for-it" spirit that American sports fans seek in their Olympians. His decision would draw sharp criticism if he loses by the narrowest of margins.But know this:It would be the right decision for Todd Eldredge.He needs to be comfortable. He needs to go with what got him to this point. He needs to ignore the casual figure skating fans who turn into experts every four years.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Christopher Bowman works best when he works alone.The gossip and the rumors that envelop the bad boy of American figure skating fade the moment he steps on the ice. Give him a spotlight, dress him in black and then stand back and watch.Yesterday, Bowman ended yet another tumultuous week in his career by winning the free-skate final and claiming his second men's title at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships.This was hardly the best of Bowman, but the show was good enough to send him to next month's Winter Olympics in Albertville, France.

ALBERTVILLE, France -- There is no hiding the frustration that has built in Todd Eldredge. It is there every day in practice, every time he attempts a triple Axel jump, the move that has come to separate the medal contenders from the pretenders in men's figure skating.Eldredge, the 1990 and 1991 national champion, is not the skater he could have been at these Winter Olympics. He realizes that with every botched triple Axel attempt, like the one during a run-through yesterday morning of the original program he will skate when the men's competition begins tonight.
