    Official says judges slanted toward Adelina Sotnikova

    Brennan: Official says judges slanted toward Adelina Sotnikova


    A high-ranking Olympic figure skating official, who spoke to USA TODAY sports on the condition of anonymity due to the sensitive nature of the topic, said the geographic makeup of the judging panel "was clearly slanted towards (Olympic gold medalist) Adelina Sotnikova," adding "this is what they can do."

    As for reigning Olympic champion Yuna Kim, the judge said: "Kim was so much better than Adelina in all aspects. Both Kostner and Kim were better than Adelina."

    Can we not create new threads for every article out there, and just post articles in the appropriate, general thread?

    It´s simple. You can´t win without good technical content (without 3Lo and without two combinations with triples), especially when the concurrence do it.

    Thanks for this, with olympic officials coming out and saying something, I think it is a huge step at more transparency.
