    If this hasn't been an issue until now with Kim's fans, I don't know why it would be any more likely for them in particular in Sochi.

    In almost every competition I've been to in the last decade, the announcer has followed with "It is dangerous for the skaters."

    That's why it's important to take a test photo and get feedback on whether there's a flash. I often see/hear that happening, and it takes about five seconds to ensure you're not being disruptive.

    I had an older camera that would turn itself off, if I didn't use it for 5-10 minutes. Sometimes I would forget that I had to re-turn off the flash when I "restarted" the camera. I just never brought it to skating competitions.
