Miki Ando is obsessed with chainsaw sculpting; in fact, this is what led to her original shoulder injury. She refuses to give up her craft and her sculptures are now greatly in demand and help to support her skating.

The plot of Bizet's "Carmen" was originally a backstage musical -- a light hearted romantic triangle set in a 19th C. Spanish high school.

IMHO, I thought that Apolo was a far better dancer than Evan was, and his transformation was unexpected and far more pronounced. Who would have ever thought that a short track speed skater would have excelled to the extent that he did?

ISU judges give higher scores to national champions than to other skaters.

ISU judges fairly score all skaters, particularly World Champions, based on what they do on the ice. The absurd criticism that politics come into play was only a ploy to attract a political demographic to the sport. It's worked too - every candidate, as well as all their family members, who has ran for electoral office at any level of a political campaign is a HUGE fan of figure skating, which is why it's so popular all around the world and rules all forms of media.
