    It is the IOC press release. Journalistic standards or pr standards? The writer is a mystery and not being revealed and their work was taken down and edited.

    The IOC (or the ISU) are hardly models of professionalism or integrity in the first place, so I doubt anyone will be shocked over this latest transgression.

    And here IOC was trying to wash their hands of the matter. This hardly speaks of impartiality on their part regarding what happened.

    Yuna doesnt deserve this. She wants to retire but all the media on her boyfriend and now this? Can't a girl just enjoy a normal life for once?

    The allegedly false article was published at the Youth Olympics site. IOC is apparently concerned that the judging controversy may leave bad impression of the Games on kids and potential future Olympians.

    Then IOC should not have yielded to Putin. You can't eat your cake and have it.

    She has been by limiting her comments. The problem is that the IOC seems to be devaluing other skaters on the podium to quiet the controversy down, like the comments on their short program highlight video where Yuna's 3lz-3t became 3lz-2t and 3f-3t by Kostner became 3t-3t then not mentioning Sotnikova's easier 3t-3t combination.

    What difference does it make at this point? The medals have been given out. Yuna has retired and is hopefully moving on with her life. Adelina is doing whatever Adelina does. What possible outcome can come from this other than another 200 page thread on GS?

    I think you didn't get any point. Outcome is not a matter at all.
    We are denouncing distorted reports by the media.
    As you know, Journalism and broadcasting must be based on the truth.
    The victim from this happening is a figureskater Yuna Kim who wanted to be classy from the resault.

    Now the question is why IOC did this stupic act?
    What they want to hide by this fabricated interview?
    Differences between before and after is that it is getting obvious IOC want to hide something.
    What a political and foollish.
    However, it is also pursuasive to some people who don't know very well about figurskating unless issuing apology to Yuna Kim about this article.

    My point is?
    ISU should apology to Yuna Kim.

    First, there should be prove that this quote actually existed. It's so easy to manipulate digital images, and everyone knows it. Yet, everyone is so eager to think bad of everyone else and believe the worst - I am just shocked. What about "innocent before his guilt is proven"?

    IOC want to inflate Youth Olympic's outcome.
    It was a deliberate black lie.
    Yuna even didn't see Sotnikova's skating that night.
    It's not enough to take her GM, heh?

    Now they correct their shameless lie.

    I was curious about this too, so I searched for the cached version of that page and the quote was there.
