Hotter?

Nooooo..

Between two men, I am not a judge to choose... But between two women, Yelena is so much hotter....

I wish I could say the Russians deserved the gold medal but they don't. I always say "let the best pair win" and had anton/elena been the best pair and won fairly, i'd be happy for them and give them credit. But, they weren't. Therefore, their gold medal is very empty.

Just got one thing to say, whoever voted Berezhnaya - Sikharulidze either didn't watch them skate tonight or are voting for them the same reason that the few judges voted for them. Pure out bias!

By the way, Jamie is definetly cuter ;)

Another view?

I haven't seen it due to the non-coverage
of the Winter Games in Singapore;but
if I'm not mistaken aren't mistakes suppose
to be deducted a bit more??

I remember so many instances during the
winter olympics where mistakes were
dealt very harshly.

On the other hand; biased judging??
What hasn't changed all these years!

Oh, what a horrible photo! *shudder* I didn't see it and would have voted for Abitbol and Bernadis had they been competing, anyway :p

I saw both teams skate and I thought the Canadians were clearly better.

My question is... the Canadians were flawless and the Russians made mistakes, but how did they win? :confused:

Another question is... I thought the Canadians actually got better marks than the Russians, definitely in technical marks anyway from what i can remember, but they were placed second! :confused:

Also I noticed that the judges who gave the Russians #1 were Russian, Chinese amongst others... Whereas the Americans, Canadians gave Canadians #1. The competition doesn't really seem fair :mad:
