Pairs- Cant question V&T's win even if much of their scoring was disgusting- +3s for a two footed triple throw, +3s for hands down on a throw, early proof of the whole figure skating competition being fixed by the Russians. Still their win given the performance was unquestioned.
Men- Hanyu's win is pretty much unquestionable I think, and I havent heard anyone complain. 2 mistakes over the 2 programs to 5 for Chan, and arguably better quality technical elements and higher base value. There is only so much you can do for Chan on PCS.
Dance- Havent heard anyone dispute V&M's win here, even D&W fans.
Ladies- No brainer.
Pairs- No brainer. Tons of controversy after that, but that isnt the topic.
Men- No brainer, even if the scores were proposterous (like always for a Russian skater).
Dance- N&K's win was pretty much unquestionable. I know some think they were overrated but neither of the D&S teams skated cleanly enough over the event to merit winning, maybe one or both were robbed of a medal, but not gold. B&A also did not turn in a gold medal competition, only their OD was competitive with N&K here.
Ladies- Unquestioned win for Shizuka despite only 5 triples. Slutskaya had a bad fall, 4 triples, but also many shaky landings, lost levels, and a very slow and weak performance. Cohen had basically 4 falls (landed 5 but one with a shaky landing with -GOE and part of a 2 triple sequence with a substracted value so overall comes to more like 4 triples), a fall, a step out, and didnt do a 3rd combination or 3 jump sequence.
Yes Turin amazingly did not have even a single questionable gold medalist, let alone a controversial one. However it was also a fairly blah competition so maybe that shows us what has to happen for every win to be uncontested. Pretty much the competition has to suck for that to happen over 4 disciplines it seems.
Men- No brainer given how Plushenko skated vs how Yagudin did here.
Dance- Nobody thinks A&P shouldnt have won and had L&A won it (as they nearly did, what a scary thought) it would have been a scandal approaching Sotnikova's win yesterday. Lots of controversy about places 2-5, many think the 5th place finishers were the real silver medalists.
Pairs- No brainer given the performances, even if the gold performance was kind of blah.
Men- Cant question Kulik's victory.
Ladies- Despite falling in the LP there cant really be any debate about Kristi's win given everyone elses mistakes, and that Midori put herself in 4th in the short with a fall.
Pairs- Despite that the silver medalists had a cleaner performance, nobody questioned the win of Miskutienok & Dmitriev that I can recall.
Dance- Other than the egotistical Isabelle Duchesnay nobody questioned this result. Not even the crazed French crowd who instead booed the low 5.5 given by the judges from France to the deserved winners.
I'm pretty sure there's no one alive who would contests Lysacek's clear as crystal victory in 2010....
Yes there are people here who think V&T are overscored (and they certainly are) but firm Russian fed. #2 S&K are almost as overscored too, and if anything there are probably some who think they didnt deserve the silver even with S&S falling twice and P&T struggling with their jumps some. Saying you thought people might think S&K should have won with V&T having an almost clean skate, is like saying you think people would believe Duhamel & Radford (probably on their best day perceived as a similar level of team to S&K by fans, if not to judges) should have beaten V&T had D&R gone clean and V&T been almost clean as well.
