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. :)

If you tell me that Yuna didn’t take risk, we can’t be friends. LOL. But seriously, we just can’t be friends if you think her BV is so fucking low or she played it safe. It’s a calculated risk to put all your chips into your GOEs and PCS. TES is not just base value, guys; it’s BV + GOE. It just so happens that she got screwed over in her GOEs and PCS. Look at Yuna’s jumps. There’s a reason why Scott Hamilton keeps calling them textbook perfect.
Also, Yuna makes her circular step sequence look so easy. She follows a CW path while her natural rotation direction is CCW. Majority of the things she does in the sequence is done in one foot. And she’s doing all that with good speed, while changing edges — clear edge changes — and not compromising her choreography. Kurt Browning was right, you don’t become a better skater overnight. Yuna, Mao and Caro took years to build their PCS, and to make their skating look effortless. It’s crazy and stupid that they weren’t rewarded accordingly.
Just getting it out there because I’ve never ranted about this shit right after the ladies finals.
Welp I guess we solved the mystery of the person who gave Yuna Kim a 0. Didn’t know that the skaters could be friends with the judges ^__^ Also didn’t know that figure skating was a team collaboration between the judge and the skater. Corruption at its finest.
