Kurt Browning won his third world championship in a row. Elvis Stojko (CAN) lands the first quad in combination, the first quadruple toe loop-double toe loop combination, at the World Championships.
The U.S. became the only nation to ever sweep the ladies' podium at a World Championships.
Midori Ito and Laetitia Hubert collided with each other during a practice session. In the short program, Ito stumbled over an opening in the boards and into a camera but was back on the ice after three seconds. Tonya Harding became the first American woman to perform a triple-axel at an international event.
The judges voted two couples (from Czechoslovakia and Poland) exactly the same (each 12 placings in compulsory dance 2).
