    Cinquanta says....
    'Synchronized skating is part of the ISU family and is duly respected by us. A team synchronized skating has 16 individuals. If ten teams with alternates [compete at Olympics] that is about 200 people. Now the situation becomes technical and organizational. Why technical? Because to permit a team to offer strategies, lines and wheels, the team needs [living] space and ice time.
    That doesn't mean [the ISU] will not try. We have to be cautious and make proposals at the right moment. There is a problem with the number of people staying in the Olympic Village.'
