Usova & Zhulin had an awful free dance and it was much weaker than Torvill & Dean and Grischuk & Platov performed that night, but since they were reigning world champions and it was their turn for the gold medal they should have been given it, and the judges were wrong not to. They are too great a team to not win an Olympic gold too, and Torvill & Dean already had one and Grischuk & Platov were almost certain to get in in the future, so even though their performance sucked that night, they should have given it for their overall careers.
I would given the womens gold to Witt since her winning her 3rd Olympic gold would be a better story and none of the women were even that good anyway, so why not. Baiul landed the same number of clean triples as Witt.
Men I would given to Urmanov since Stojko was so ugly while Alexei is quite handsome, and their skating was about the same.
Pairs I would given to Artur Dmitriev since he is hotter than Sergei, and the performances were about the same, so I go with the cuter.
Usova & Zhulin should have won since they were the only team to perform well in all phases. Torvill & Dean had weak compulsories this year that if anyone else had performed would have gotten 8th or 9th. Gritschuk & Platov had a weak OD that deserved no higher than 4th and should have taken them out of gold running, especialy when Usova & Zhulin did better compulsories too.
I think the judges were distracted by what Baiul was doing above the waist during her programs and forgot to pay attention to what she was doing with her legs.
Men and I are like pianos - when they get upright, I feel grand!
Maybe the judges had a taste of Kerrigan's personality
