Nope...I don't like so-called sports where artsy performance is evaluated...and every country votes for it's own and tries to drag down the others, just unfair :P ...and the athletes or performers have to use more and more silly ideas to stand out from the usual crowd...all the images show it and also the video in this thread, nabi posted...

but that's why it's called figure skating and ice dancing- there'd be artsiness involved which can only be judged by others qualified to do so....but I think that the olympics have already come a long way from ""cooking the goose" in the olden times....more people are savvy and even the audience will already recognise what a good or sucky performance is...you can't eliminate the human element from this- that's why they're different from the other swifter, stronger, faster, higher sports- and that's not a bad thing I think...

Unfortunately the others are not qualified....and the dancers have their own way to be stronger, faster, swifter, i.e. more and more complicated loop jumps, compulsory figures (and questionable ideas and dresses) :P

but that's why- a combination of art and athletics....or artistic expression and technical execution...so it's not that bad for a sports...

Canadians are strange, have a look how they make their medal count:

medals1.jpg
Canada = 3rd place

in Germany we do it this way:

medals2.jpg
Canada = 1st place
Looks better.... ;)

...and finally I start to like snowboarding: in the US, the ski resort Breckenridge, CO legalised marijuana (the private possession of up to one ounce that is), presumably for the many snowboarders there... :lol:
