The Russian figure skater won the gold legitimately. If you looked at the technical scores, she won in more layers than one. Because Yuna has been called the Queen of Skating, naturally there are those who will argue. Because Russia defeated her, there is extra angst, just because she is Russian. If I had been scoring the contest, I’d have given the silver to Caroline of Italy, and her skate to Bolero. As it was, she won the bronze.
Please anyone who cares about this, put your national pride aside, as should always be done in the Olympic Games, and be happy at least in the Women’s skating, they did it right.
Only Ice Dancing is fixed. It has been from the beginning, and other than when Torville and Dean won in 1984 (also dancing to Bolero), and couldn’t have gone any other way, I think there has been a fix in.
How many who are bitching about the Russian woman winning were agreeing with the Canadian writer who was so upset over the ice dancing this year.
Whatever, I believe the women’s contest was graded fairly, even if I wanted Italy to win the silver.
