But because Belbin is a Canadian native in the process of applying for U.S. citizenship, and both skaters must be citizens of this nation to represent it at the Olympics, they might not be in Turin. The couple has hired a law firm to help speed up that quest and is getting help from a congressional representative. Belbin and Agosto almost certainly need an answer by the end of the year for her to be able to skate at Turin. Russia’s Elena Sokolova, skating a clean but somewhat lackluster free skate, had little trouble beating a second-level field in the women’s event. Coming off two disappointing seasons after finishing second in the world in 2003, Sokolova never struggled here, but lacked the pizazz of American Alissa Czisny, who won the long program. But Czisny was third in the short program and couldn’t catch Sokolova despite a personal best free skate. Japan’s Yoshie Onda finished third. A 20-year-old University of Minnesota-Morris student was killed Saturday when football fans rushed onto the field and pulled down a goal post at the end of the school’s homecoming game. Richard Thomas Rose, of Benton City, Wash., was pronounced dead at a hospital after attempts to revive him on the field failed, school officials said. SOCCER: Cruz Azul won its first Mexican Primera Division game since coach Ruben Omar Romero was freed from kidnappers a month ago, halting a four-game winless skid with a 3-0 triumph over visiting San Luis return to the top of the Apertura Group 3 standings. Cesar Delgado scored his eighth and ninth goals of the season as the Mexico City-based Cementeros (8-3-2) climbed past Monterrey (7-2-4), which rallied for a 1-1 tie with visiting Necaxa. Toluca (7-4-2) overtook Pachuca (6-2-4) for first place in Group 2 with a 1-0 victory over Atlante. Pachuca is home today against Guadalajara.

SPEEKSKATING: Jennifer Rodriguez won twice, and Olympic champion Casey FitzRandolph and Shani Davis set course records in U.S. Long Track Speedskating competition at West Allis, Wis. Rodriguez won the 500 in 39.01 seconds and the 1,500 in 1 minute, 59.97 seconds. FitzRandolph skated through in 35.56 to take the men’s 500. Davis won the 1,500 in 1:46.44 to smash the record of 1:47.73 he set last December. COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Division III Mount Union lost a regular-season game for the first time since 1994, falling 21-14 to Ohio Northern. Mount Union had won 110 straight regular-season games and had not lost an Ohio Athletic Conference or regular-season game since Oct. 15, 1994. The Olympic figure skating season is off to a fine start for Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto. The only problem: They’re not eligible for the 2006 Olympics Turin Games. Belbin and Agosto, the first U.S. dance team with a legitimate shot at an Olympic medal in more than two decades, won Skate America on Saturday at Atlantic City, N.J., with a flashy flamenco free dance. It was a fast-paced routine featuring some stunningly difficult footwork – very impressive for the opening Grand Prix series event.
