Figure skating controversy

  1. Several years ago I saw a Chinese contender do a standing four flip frontal rotation with a new position having his legs spread wide and rotating on that axis and he didn't win. He should have. Plushenko is the best in the world and he didn't win. It was close, who's to win, the best athlete or the best entertainer. I'll go for the athlete every time, the judges should also.

    In the Dance routine it's grace and entertainment. Just my opinion.

  2. I would go for the athlete too Don. Always remember that it's a competition and a sport.

  3. That requires skills and extra ordinary attention.
