^^ Oh, come on VarBar, save your Chan defense for Sochi.
Chan deserved to win 2009 Worlds and 2011 Worlds. His 5th place in Vancouver was generous to say the least. Strange we never hear Chan fans up-in-arms about Chan being denied 2009 Worlds, which he actually deserved to win!
Lambiel could have won it all in Vancouver had he actually been prepared to skate well. Unfortunately, he was not and he did not.
As far as Weir's placement in Vancouver, your thoughts clearly are sympatico with those of US fed at the time who didn't care where the F Johnny placed*, and with those of ISU judges, and Johnny detractors everywhere!
*Because their thoughts were solely on ensuring Lysacek would be in contention for gold
