U.States and Russia conspire to fix Olympic ice skating competition

The International Skating Union said they had no comment ,,& U.S. Figure Skating "categorically" denied the allegations...

On Saturday, The Canadians skaters were penalized ,leading too the allegations

During the 2002 Winter Olympic Games at Salt Lake City, a scandle arose when Russian & French judges were caught colluding to fix the ice skating competition....resulting in having to award a second gold medal to Canada....

I watched this at work tonight and I'm sorry, I believe sporting events are "fixed", as in I knew the Seahawks would win the Superbowl because it was all over UTube...

But these two American skaters from Detroit had a connection, or something along that line and it was undeniable. My co-workers were also in awe. White and Davis were beautiful together, and deserved the highest score. I didn't see who skated after them.

That aside, cheating is among the most detestable things we can do internationally. I mean, other than blowing up wedding caravans, and extraordinary rendition, and giving latin americans syphilis. But yea, other than that....cheating sucks the worst.

In all seriousness, I don't think I am surprised to hear this. Corruption exist in every power structure.

So the French .. who were actually caught cheating .. are throwing around accusations with no evidence at all?

I would BE MORE surprised to learn that someone had not conspired to cheat or hadn't cheated. How sad is that? There is always talk about this during any kind of sporting event including each and every Olympic event ever held. Why anyone "feels like a winner" when they have cheated is so far beyond me.... I don't know why you would bother. But people do.

Nobody in the world would be surprised to hear that the US conspired to cheat or actually did cheat at ANYTHING I don't think. I certainly wouldn't be.

Cheating, lying, stealing ... indirect harm. And yet, the ISU had no comment.

People train their butts off for the Olympics. For many of them it's their one chance for athletic glory.

I saw this happening a long time ago and lost all interest in The Games.
