INTRODUCTION The New Ice-Dancing Champions of the Soviet Union are Irina Moiseeva and Andrei Minenkov. The pair took the title for the first time at the Soviet Figure-Skating Championships in Vilnius, in Lithuania.
SYNOPSIS: Moiseeva and Minenkov, from Moscow, were last year's World Champions. And they could be in line for this year's as well. The Soviet skating teams for the European and World events are largely selected from the national championships here. They managed to give this brilliant performance despite a collision during practice that put another pair out of the contest.
Nine five-nines for technique; artistic impression eight sixes.
