Readers Respond: Which Pair Skating Team Should Have Won Olympic Gold?

Responses: 2

The 2002 Olympic figure skating scandal caused the scoring system for figure skating to be revanmped and changed. Which pair skating team really deserved to win the gold? Share Your Opinion

In 2002 my first impression was that the real winners were Sallé and Pelletier, but 10 years after and watching the videos, I saw their routine and the Berezhnaya and Sicharulidze's program and I thought the Russians were better because the jumps and spins were more consistent and the difficulty were more than the Canadians and you can see it in the triple twist, the sit spins and the footwork.
