I think it's mostly a function of fewer true skating fans in the audience whch is probably a function of fewer people travelling to the competition from abroad which is probably a function of bad organization and/or security worries which is a function of bad publicity ahead of the games.
average local citizens not necessarily skating fans
also russian Hockey fans went to watch FS, nothing wrong with high turn out of locals
that means people are interested
