How? By politicking to have their biggest competitor weakened. It’s common sense, if you take away their number 2 in two disciplines, you weaken the team. Surely even you won’t be saying that Astakhova/Rogonov was anywhere near comparable to Stolbova/Klimov? Or is Zagorski/Gureiro comparable to Stepanova/Bukin? Even you must be able to see the difference. No matter how much you would like to pretend that everything was ok.What I want to know is how Canada cheated their way to the gold when it was obvious Zagitova and Medvedeva would both compete in the team event, and the top 2 pairs from Nationals/GPF were assigned?
I’m completely of some Canadian athlete results from about 1996 until 2003, but give me a break on this one.
