    French first in final ice dance standings

     NICE, France (CP) -- Marina Anissina and Gwendal Peizerat of France received four perfect 6.0 marks for artistry in winning the gold ice dance medals at the world figure skating championships Friday.

     Barbara Fusar Poli and Maurizio Margaglio of Italy won the silver medals, and Margarita Drobiazko and Povilas Vanagas of Lithuania won bronze.

     Canadian champions Marie-France Dubreuil of Ste-Catharine, Que., and Patrice Lauzon of Boisbriand, Que., finished 10th, and Megan Wing and Aaron Lowe of Vancouver finished 15th.

     The win was the first for France in any of the four disciplines since Isabelle and Paul Duchesnay, the Canadian-raised siblings, won the dance event in 1991 in Munich.

     Anissina was an apparition to Peizerat, portraying a monk, in the free dance that won them the title.

     Anissina, 24, was born in Moscow. She linked up with Peizerat, 27, in 1993. They won the European title in Vienna earlier this season. They were the world silver medallists in 1998 and 1999. When champions Anjelika Krylova and Oleg Ovsiannikov of Russia were unable to compete this season after Krylova suffered a back injury, the path to the top of the podium was open.
