http://web.icenetwork.com/news/2013...redicts-return-to-prominence-for-russian-team The article is interesting; however, there is one paragraph: "In 2006, Russia claimed three gold medals and a bronze. (Slutskaya says now that she was told before she skated in Torino that "I had no chance [to win gold]. There was no way, even if I skated perfectly, that they would let Russia win all four gold medals. I could do everything I could, but there was no way we could sweep." As it turned out, Slutskaya did make mistakes in her program and ended up with the bronze.)" Has this been talked about? Was there any actual chatter or is this purely speculation and/or Irina's words only? Anyone know?
