Excerpt: "French figure-skating star Brian Joubert is taking his first step toward the Vancouver Olympics in 2010 by turning to four-time world champion Kurt Browning [for help with choreography]....
"'On my mind is, if I'm Brian Joubert, how do I compete against Lambiel?' Browning said yesterday. 'Technically, I think Joubert is better in the jump category, but Stéphane has got him in spins, and right now, he's got him in footwork and overall musicality.
"'I think not this year, but somebody like Joubert can improve enough that in four years he can be competitive against Lambiel. So how to get that first step of improvement into him is my first task.'"
