Anna Nagornyuk and Viktor Kovalenko

By Vladislav Luchianov

The 2012 World Figure Skating Championships in Nice started today with preliminary rounds in pairs and ice dancers. Anna Nagornyuk and Viktor Kovalenko of Uzbekistan could miss this championships. No, not because they are weaker than other skaters or because they didn’t want to come there. They could stay out of the championships because of bureaucrats, which could not do their job – give athletes visas on time.
