AP also now has a story .. said she suffered from ***ism in recent years,
and was "plagued by personal problems."

No website.  But soon-to-be published:  The Descendants of Grand Duke Michael
of Russia and Countess Sophie von Merenberg.

AP has updated its story to mention that she was 38 years old.
She was apparently found today after being stabbed to death a
few days ago.

A sad end...can't say she stood out in my mind from other
Soviet championship contenders,and the East Bloc had Witt then
so they didn't build Ivanova up that much.But few skaters who
have risen so high,have wound up in such straits.

The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.

What a shame.  I always wondered what happened to her since I last saw
her at the 1988 Olympics.  She used to ge criticize for not showing
enough personality on the ice, but the few times I saw her smile it
was a lovely, infectious smile.

RIP, Kira.
