Oh, and not to take anything away from the Russian skaters who did win the medal, but the Canadian skaters who ended up with the Silver got screwed out of the Gold. Everyone who watched the broadcast, and seemingly everyone in the arena but the judges knew it. It’s a shame for the sport of figure skating really. There are people who don’t watch it except for the once every four year Olympic competitions. I, for one, have a hard time with sports where judges determine the outcome to begin with. Referees or umpires are one thing, they can have some effect on the outcome, but when judges have enough leeway to make someone who obviously gave an inferior performance win, I take exception.
