In this column I'll include any breaking news on Brian, including upcoming competitions, and so on.

Friday, 03/25/05 Champion skaters jam on ice By EVELYN ATZLINGER
Sarah Hughes, who turns 20 on May 2, is not your typical teenager. On Feb. 21, 2002, at age 16 and after thousands of hours of practice, Hughes skated a near-perfect program to win the 2002 Olympic gold medal in women's figure skating. Today, she'll grace the ice at Gaylord Entertainment Center as the headliner for Smucker's Stars on Ice. Hughes, who became the first person to rebound from fourth place to win the gold medal since the short-program free-skate scoring system was instituted in 1992, makes her debut in the production. The show is described as set in an atmosphere of fantasy, wonderment and mind-boggling magic, according to Smucker's. But Hughes won't be alone on the ice. ''They'll have six Olympic champions. There's great music, great costumes and everybody seems to have a good time,'' Hughes said. She'll be joined by 2002 Olympic champions Jamie Salé and David Pelletier, Elena Berezhnaya and Anton Sikharulidze and Alexei Yagudin; as well as world champions Todd Eldredge and Yuka Sato; world bronze medalists Kyoko Ina and John Zimmerman; eight-time British National champion Steven Cousins; world pairs champions Xue Shen and Hongbo Zhao; and European and two-time French champion Brian Joubert. ''You don't have to be a figure-skating expert to enjoy'' the show, Hughes said.

Apparently, Brian and Laetitia are no longer a couple! She has declared about a month ago to a French television that they have split up.
