There was plenty of drama Thursday night at the finals of men's figure skating at the Vancouver Winter Olympics. One skater's laces broke in the middle of his program. And American Johnny Weir performed exceptionally well and crowned himself with a wreath of roses while waiting for his score.
I like this lead by Tom Goldman, sports correspondent for NPR. He answered most of the W's and that is good for the audience. He also put in some words that could make the audiences picture the event happening without even watching it on television. I think it worked pretty well for a standard newspaper lead writing style.
