It was the only figure skating performance I watched all of beside Tim Gable. It's so nice when the best performer gets the highest award. She was beautiful.

This has saved figure skating. She almost lost. Through a complicated system, the best skater won, by the slimmest of margins.
Everyone should be thanking the judges. Tonight they have saved figure skating. Sarah Hughes won the gold medal, not because of nationality or reputation or corruption. She was clearly the best.

I don't get the scoring system, I don't care to. I just like to watch. After her long skate, I told everyone, she's just won the gold medal. I was so surprised to see that she actually *tied* Slutskaya and won on a tiebreak formula. I'm glad it went her way, for on that day at that time, she was the best skater in the world. Despite the screwy scoring system.
