    Sochi Controversy, Drugs, Rigging.....

    Fallout continues after Russian Adelina Sotnikova wins figure skating gold over Korean Yuna Kim

    A Russian figure skater has beaten a Korean skater to the gold medal in the women’s free skate despite clearly being the second best competitor on the ice.

    And Korea, which hosts the 2018 Winter Olympics, is absolutely furious.

    Word among figure skating experts is that you’re skating on very thin ice indeed to believe that Russia’s Adelina Sotnikova’s upset victory over reigning Olympic champion Yuna Kim of South Korea was richly deserved.

    There is even the suggestion the fix could be in, with many seasoned skating commentators and former competitors absolutely astounded at the result.

    Katarina Witt, the former East German glamour queen of the ice, tweeted “Shame Gold Medal, Yuna Kim is a real queen”.

    Alex Goldberger, Olympics researcher at US broadcaster NBC said “Adelina Sotnikova was excellent tonight, but Yuna Kim was robbed”.

    Adding to the intrigue is the fact that Russian judge Alla Shekhovtseva, is married to the general director of the Figure Skating Federation of Russia.

    There were three other Eastern European judges on the panel but no Korean. And if fans in Sochi have taught the world anything at these Games, it’s that Eastern European nations cheer for each other if one of their own is not winning.

    Italian, German kicked out of Sochi Games for doping

    THE first doping cases have hit the Sochi Winter Olympics after a double gold-medal winning German female biathlete and an Italian bobsledder tested positive for banned substances.

    German biathlete Evi Sachenbacher-Stehle, who has won two gold medals at previous Olympic Games, confirmed she had tested positive, describing it as the “worst nightmare you can imagine”. The Italian Olympic Committee said bobsledder William Frullani had tested positive for a banned substance and had already been kicked out of the Games.

    The German Olympic Sports Confederation said in a statement that both Sachenbacher-Stehle's 'A' and 'B' samples had tested positive for the stimulant methylhexanamin.

    It said she appeared before an IOC disciplinary commission, has now been excluded from the German team and was leaving Sochi immediately.
