Skating is art, if you let it be.
He could have just done a 2Axel instead and won the Bronze anyway. The judges had him way ahead. But, yes, it's annoying the amount of points people get for doing a quad splat. The problem has only gotten worse with updated CoP rules (6.3 points for a fall on a Quad Toe these days...sigh), which is a big reason for why Patrick Chan's competitive results are seen as undeserved.
