    It happens every time.

    What you guys are saying is double standards. You're ok with winnings of those who are immature, young but North Americans (Lipinski, Hughes, Gold) or mature but not good enough in TES as long as they're North Americans (Evan, Rochette...).
    Yes. This post is 100% right.

They had to do it all on their own merit, an unusual position for a Russian athlete, and one they typically struggle with.
    They do extremely well in those judged events, syn. swimming, rhy. gymnastics which nobody really cares. FS is getting more and more obscure except the scandals. Meaningless metals... I probably watched one hour in total. I knew it would be fixed beforehand.

    The crazy thing is those judges from East European countries and Soviet Union. They suffered so much under communist Russia but still feel indebted to Russia, culturally to prop up Russian athletes. Well typical Stockholm syndrome, I guess.

    If Vancouver has the same level of inflation Joannie and Chan will be gold contender not bronze or podium respectively.

    I think Korean officials are too timid to try that, and they care too much about how other countries think about them, unlike Russia.

    Did you watch the 2002 Italy-Korea game in the world cup they hosted? They are definitely not above fixing matches.

    They were gold contenders. Chan always falls on his ***; not much to be done.

    If you said so against Spain, I agree. Not for Italy.

    There were a lot of questionable games at that world cup http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZPd8YmFcvtQ

    BUT the good news is that despite fan/footballer/ex-footballer outrage, neither FIFA, football nor the South Korean team really suffered for it So as long as the US media doesn't hop on the scrutiny bandwagon, this whole scandal will die down eventually.

    2A 3.63 x 
    Total 61.84

    Sotnikova
    3T+3T 8.20 
    3F 5.30
    2A 3.63 x

    3Lz+3T 10.10 (Wrong edge. should get -GOE -1~-2 but Judges gave +GOE.)
    3F 5.30
    3Lo 5.10 
    2A+3T 8.14 x
    3F+2T+2Lo 9.24 x 
    3S 4.62 x 
    2A 3.63 x
    Total 63.26 

    the difference is only 1.42 point.
    Their PCS is almost same in both SP and FP.
    YuNa's step sequence got level 3 in SP and FP and Adelina got level 4 and 1.7 GOE.
    This is fixed from the beginnig.YuNa was robbed of gold medal.
