Baiul to Train in U.S.

KIEV () -- Olympic figure-skating champion Oksana Baiul will leave Ukraine next month to train permanently at a new rink in Hartford, Connecticut, her coach has said.

The offer, which was accepted Friday, had been made after Baiul won the Olympic title in Norway in February.

Since winning Ukraine's first Olympic gold at the Lillehammer Games, Baiul and her coach have complained of poor training conditions in the destitute former Soviet Republic.
