I don't know how you sell this to the general public, but what would happen if instead of ranking the skaters, they were slotted into weighted ranking groups based on their score and how many standard deviations they were from the leader?

So in the ladies SP, for example, you'd have Valieva as #1, then Wakaba as maybe 3, Gubanova & Schizas as 4, Chen as 5, Schott, Shabatova and Brezinova as 6.

Actual rank could one of the tiebreakers.

It would make it unpredictable, lol.

For months now, I have read speculations and projections (many of them thanks to Karen-W) about who will compete and how it will play out, and I don't remember a single one that included pre-event positive test for recreational drug from member of gold medal winning team involves legal action.

Not a one.

Since this oversight has thrown 54 pages of messages into total meaninglessness, I will add one final speculation and that is pre-event positive test for recreational drug from member of gold medal winning team involves legal action leads to Diana Davis getting every single medal still lying around.

Now, all possibilities have been covered!
