Just my thoughts on the Men's Free Skate ...
... there is no question that Stephane Lambiel is the rightful champion ... he skated superbly through all three parts of the competition.
But what's up with the rest??? I mean, I can just get over Jeff Buttle winning silver (though he shouldn't have been ahead of Weir) ... but Lysacek with the bronze? Are you kidding me?`
I was watching the competition live in TV with two friends who couldn't understand this either.
The German commentators were completely outraged at the final result!!!
How could Johnny Weir not be on the podium? How could anyone prefer Evan Lysacek's program to that of Johnny who is so much stronger both in the technical elements and program components?
I have been watching figure skating for many years, and have been to many competitions, but this World Championship is leaving a bitter aftertaste.
There were several other decisions that apparently no one can understand but not giving Johnny Weir the Bronze medal is unforgivable.
