It's not that she doesn't bother. She can not be a judge in ice dance anymore. You're naive if you think that for Russia was not important to win bronze.


It's nearly impossible to get rid of every conflict of interest, but you can put a dent in it by stating that no judge may officiate at any senior international event if they are, or have been within the previous two years, an officer or administrator of a national or regional skating body. This would include the spouses of such individuals
What about those individuals who are not married to Fed Presidents, or vice presidents, but are actually holding these official position themselves?
