    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.

    The 1997 World Figure Skating Championships did not take place.*

    * That's a book by Jean Beaudrillard, by the way.

    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    - Dagmar Lurz was also a competitive speed skater.
    - Jan Hoffman was, in fact, Superman in 1970's "European Films".
    - Katarina Witt's 1981 SP was a tribute to her secret love affair with Sweetums from the Muppets.

    Nancy graciously took a dive, because she knew Oksana needed the Gold more than she did.
