    In tandem with the retrospective I did on the 1980 Olympics, here is a poll on its most controversial element - the Ladies competition.

    By way of background, the following is the segment on the Ladies competition from the retrospective

    I voted for Biellmann since even though I know about the figures, Poetzsch and Fratianne compared so unfavorably to her in free skating they deserved 4.9s if she was getting 5.9s. Realistically speaking I guess Poetzsch.

    IMO Beilmann and ,to a lesser extent ,Watanabe of Japan were the only engaging skaters of this era. For me, Fratianne vs. Poetsch is the Plushenko vs. Lysacek of the past.
    The two of them were just so uninspiring and blah, that it's hard for me to have any type of opinion ,whatsoever, about who should have won. In both cases I wish the gold medalist could have been the Swiss or Japanese skater.

    However, I will admit that Fratianne's entitlement whining makes me :rolleyes:
