And a good Tuesday morning to you all, as we kick things off in figure skating. Now it seems it’s not just the fans of Kim Yu-na nor the Korea Skating Union, who are unhappy with the president of ISU, Ottavio Cinquanta.
Tim Wood, a former world champion and Olympic silver medalist, Bill Fauver, a five-time U.S. pairs silver medalist, Tim Gerber, an ice skating technical specialist, and Monica Friedlander, a journal in figure skating, have started an online petition, seeking the resignation of Ottavio Cinquanta. Some of the reason include, his lack of knowledge in figure skating, introducing anonymous judging system, which can lead to scandals, and a new system that has resulted in more political and reputation-based judging resulting in scandal and scandal including the most recent Kim Yu-na scandal in Sochi. The petition has so far been signed by over 15-hundred people online.
