    I'm not surprised -- unfortunately.

    Yes, actually this was reported about three weeks ago. Cinquanta ran unopposed and was re-elected by acclamation.

    Most interesting to me is that on each of the two all-powerful technical committees (figure skating and ice dance) two of the four members are from Russia and Italy (including both committee chairmen).

    Fabio Bianchetti is the Italian representative on the figure skating technical committee. Evidently he does not share the views of his mother Sonia about how corrupt the ISU leadership is.

    I see that Phyllis Howard was re-elected to the Council. Conspiracy theorists suspect that she was given this plum as a reward for throwing Jackson and Pfenning to the wolves over the WSF fiasco.

    And so it goes...

    Who would run against him? Does the job pay much? I think living in Lausanne would be nice and easy living.

    I heard that no one ran against him, and that's part of the reason he's still there. Why? I don't know.

    I know this is trivial,but......

    How is his family name pronounced,is it Sinquata,Chinquata or Kinquata?I've heard commentators use all three at different times.

    It is pronounced "Chinkwanta". Cinquanta is actually Italian for the number 50.

    Feel free. Thought it best to go with the "edited version" as the "undedited version" is simply NOT appropriate for this board and would probably get me banned.......

    My guess is he won't. He's on a power trip. We have to hope that he'll do something so bad that the ISU will have no choice but to remove him. Here's hoping that happens sooner, rather than later.

    She tried. In 2003 the ISU banned her for life from holding any ISU position.
