How many times has Michelle skated this short? All of a sudden, the short is now too long? I do not understand that at all. I've read the US filed a protest.
This actually might be just what Michelle needs to get her in fighting mode. If she comes back next year revved up, she could carry that into the Olympics.
Still, it's disheartening. We always have to defend the sport because it's subjective in so many ways. Yet when there are objective standards [like the number of revolutions in the spin] it gets ignored.
I've loved skating for over 30 years, but I'm starting to get sick of the whole frustrating mess.
