Sign this Petition for open investigation into Judging Decisions of Women’s Figure Skating and Demand Rejudgement at the Sochi Olympics.
In a nutshell: Kim Yuna won silver at the Sochi Olympics this year and Adelina Sotnikova, who is a Russian, won gold. What made people so outraged is the fact that one of the judges’ sheets gave Yuna a score of 0 when it was nearly perfect. Sotnikova, who made a more visible mistake than Kim, received a higher score, which leads to speculation that the judges were biased. signing this petition will mean an investigation into the scores. This was Kim Yuna’s last year competing at the Olympics. “She never got the points she deserved, and she will never be able to break her ownrecord.” (Via michelle Pyo on fb) heartbreaking, when breaking our own record is what drives the majority of the human population.
I do not have anything against adelina. i believe that she deserved a medal. However, if the reinvestigation happens, then in the case that things were judged fairly, nothing would change and people would be appeased and happy. if the judging was unfair, then everyone would get the scores they deserved. :)
“As far as I know, figure skating is not just a competition among countries or contenders. It’s not a solitary competition with myself, either. Though I’m still in the process to learn and realize what skating really is, what I know right now is that the most important thing in figure skating is the connection with the audience. So I hope that I and everyone watching my performances will not feel joy or sorry accompanied by the colors of the medals, but share joy and happiness that I’ll deliver through the music and my performances.”
Yuna: We’ve been compared and have competed for so long, and it seems like there won’t be that competition between us again. I think I’ll remember her the most. I don’t think there are many skaters like us two, who were constantly being compared. (x)
Mao: She and I have shared ups and downs since Juniors, always under the spotlight, always trying our best. For both me, and I’m sure it’s the same for Yuna, this Olympics was about a challenge for ourselves. And we both did it. And I’m so glad. (x)
