It's a goddamn travesty that Evgenia Medvedeva got screwed out of the gold medal. Right? Who's with me? Seriously, how did THIS GIRL NOT WIN?! Her component score was only 2.4 points better than Zagitova's component score? Fuck that. Her component should have been at least 5 points higher. Zagitova saved most of her jumps for the last 30 seconds, well, brilliant bitch, doesn't change a goddamn thing. Medvedeva nailed all her shit (I know, they both kinda biffed a triple in their sets) and it was a ridiculously more artistic skate. I get that the scorers love more technical skating but this is bullshit. Zagitova might have attempted a more technical triple-triple but does that negate the fact that Medvedeva's skate made me feel something? Medvedeva gave me a reason to love the Russian skaters. She made me believe in figure skating again, in the beauty of ice dancing.
I know, I know, I was against Russians in the Olympics to begin with since they were initially banned. I say, ban 'em or don't. But, I agree with the Olympic Committee allowing these girls in as it was my favorite/least favorite part of the Olympics. I tried to give the shitty fucking ass Winter Olympics could win me over, and they did with the ladies winning the Hockey, Vonn winning any medals, and US men's curling being a real thing. But if they are going to reward Zagitova's run over Medvedeva's then fuck the winter olympics and I'll go back to only caring about the summer games (Michael Phelps or no).
Not sure how else to say this but since Medvedeva didn't win, I'm back out on the stupid winter Olympics. Sure, curling is fun and so is the biathalon (a sport the US should win every year, skiing and shooting, come the fuck on) but figure skating is what the world tunes in for. And, the US is fucking shit right now. Nagasu even said it was her audition for "Dancing with the Stars." That's goddamn a disgrace.
Regardless, Medvedeva should have won the gold and I'll never get over that. She got screwed on the component score vs Zagitova. Yes, Zagitova did win the technical score but Medvedeva was clearly the better skater, especially from an artistic level. It wasn't particularly close even though somehow the judges ruled them approx. 2 points apart in that way. Goddamnit, what a fucking travesty. Sorry, I'm drunk and I'm pissed Medvedeva didn't win. Such bullshit. If you want skaters to game the system than brilliant, fuck you. If you want the best skater to win, than you fuck you, you fucked up, assholes... You picked the wrong girl for gold...
