2017-2018 ISU Figure Skating Season - The Road to PyeongChang & Lombardia

Recommended Posts

Well "tradtionally" they've been strong in pairs, ice dancing and men's competition. They've only begun to really get strong in women's after the 2010 Olympics in preparation for their hosting time. Yes they've had strong skaters in the past like Marya Butirskaya and Irina Slutskaya but there were always better skaters than them that prevented them from achieving gold at the Olympics.

And after evgeny plushenko left skating full-time due to injury and whatever crap that bignosed twat was involved in, there was no other Russian male to follow in his footsteps and taking gold for Russia since Viktor Petrenko in 1992. And that will probably stay so long as the russian men's coaches only focus on jumping and not the other elements that the Japanese, and even the Russian ladies coaches have learned to properly exploit.

2010 was a wakeup call for Russia in figure skating to get their glory back in the sport. Unfortunately, there's no way to tell how many of those athletes won their golds without cheating since their discovery of the doping scandal and the allegations that the majority of the Russian athletes did in fact dope.

He represented Unified Team in 1992 when he won his gold medal, not Ukraine. So it's still considered a Russian win.

Considering how many gay guys and creepy old guys peruse this site I'm shocked how little attention this thread has gotten!

The US National champions ended this past week and it was not without its drama! The top 3 finalists in the ladies event were chosen to represent the US at Pyeongchang. Who was missing? Ashley Wagner.

We all remember 4 years ago she placed 4th in the US National championships as well and in a controversial move, she was chosen to go to Sochi instead of Mirai Nagasu, who finished 3rd. Although there was outrage among fans and disappointment from Mirai over the decision, she took it with grace.

Not Ashley though. The douche has been whining about her scores and the decision to leave her off the team. Should Mirai, Karen or Bradie be worried about another Tonya Harding assault like we saw 13 years ago? Probably not, but I wouldn't put it past the old heffer Ashley Wagner. Watch your back girls!
