RIVERSIDE — Tammy Gambill has coached figure skating champions before. But weeks like the one she and her skaters spent in Omaha, for the U.S. Figure Skating Championships Jan. 21-27, are the types from which spring daydreams of Olympic medal podiums.

It can’t be helped.

“For some of them, it’s very realistic,” Gambill said. “It’s just a matter of time.”
