Naomi Lang, 23, a member of the Karuk Tribe of California, and her partner, Peter Tchernyshev, 30, born in St. Petersburg, Russia, have qualified for the 2002 Winter Olympics to be held February 8-24 in Salt Lake City, Utah. From March 18-24 they will compete at the World Figure Skating Championships in Nagano, Japan.
This comes after the 2002 US Figure Skating Championships held January 6-13 in Los Angeles where Lang and Tchernyshev won one dance competition after another defending their National Championship title, and earning the right to compete in the Winter Olympics!

We can see Lang and Tchernyshev on ABC television:

Note that there’s a three hour difference between Eastern Time and our Pacific Time.

Lang, who lists her hometown as Allegan, Michigan, was born in Arcata, California, on the coast west of Happy Camp. She includes the Karuk flag on the bio page of her website. The Karuk tribal headquarters are in Happy Camp as this is part of their ancestral territory.
