    IMO, Ottavio Cinquanta should br publically discgraced and be ejected from the ISU. He has taken hold the ISU and is using to feed his agenda to getting more money to speed skating at the expense of figure skating. Alot of his major decisions about figure skating have been detrimental to the sport. The organisation is insular and doesnt connect- its not dysfunctional- actually its very functional but they made poor decisions in terms of the IJS.

    we need a fresh face with new people with new ideas to bring skating in north america back to something that is respectable as well as find other ways to make speed skating more marketable so one day they can stand on their own two feet and not jave to rely on the money that figure skating rakes in.
