For what it’s worth, I do think the judging was flawed or fixed in women’s ice skating. The score differentials between Sotnikova and Kim and Sotnikova and Kostner were too great. Had it been closer, I might have just been disappointed, not suspicious. But Sotnikova’s scores for both the long and short program were way too high. There is more to this event than jumping.
