This depends on how you would like to judge a horse race. Do you give the win to the horse that looks prettier and has a smoother gait or do you award the horse that croses the line first? The Americans never complained about the jumper getting the gold medal in Calgary when the jumper( Brian Boitano) beat out the artistry of Brian Orser. I think the guy that has both qualities is the winner. In most competions that take in style points as wel as dificulty, like half pipe or ski jumping, you wil not get the gold with nice lines if your distance or time or dificulty is not best also.If I was just interested in the asthetics I would visit the Bolshoi. This is suposed to be a sports venue, right?t

The only skater to land a quad was not recognised for his superior technical ability. Next time when the rest learn the quad it will be a deciding factor. There is no other issue. Well except that he is a russian, he could’ve done it inside out & not scored more points.
I have seen all the performances of these skaters. Here is my opinion. I will be straight and honest. Evan Lycacek did not deserve any medal at all in my opinion. Plushenko’s program was more challenging and even with a few mistakes he made, it was worth the gold. I also enjoyed the performance of Johnny Weir Poker Face. His fallen angel performance was not as good. I believe Johnny Weir is a talented dancer on ice, better than Lycacek. Lycacek did not have any real moves even as a dancer and the music was horrible. Plushenko showed that he is a real Olympian by performing very difficult program that included jumps and artistry. I believe though that Johnny Weir is a very talented modern dancer on ice.
