Ladies

Medals awarded Thursday, February 21, 2002
Hughes, fourth after the technical program, skated an energetic free program without obvious flaws. Kwan led after the technical program but slipped to third after two jumping errors. American Sasha Cohen finished fourth, skating a strong program marred only by a fall on the back end of a triple lutz-triple toe combination. Slutskaya became only the second Russian to medal in the women's event at the Olympics.

Hughes and Slutskaya finished with tie scores, Hughes winning the gold medal on a tiebreaker for having won the free program in a close result. The Russian skating federation filed a protest over the results for a second ladies gold to the ISU. The ISU dismissed the protest.

A controversial decision which extended the Russian dominance of pair skating at the Olympics. Salé/Pelletier were the crowd favorites and skated a flawless program, while Berezhnaya/Sikharulidze, skating a program with more complex choreography, stumbled during their double axel. Minutes before the Russians went on, Salé accidentally collided with Sikharulidze.

Judges from Russia, the People's Republic of China, Poland, Ukraine, and France placed the Russians first; judges from the United States, Canada, Germany, and Japan gave the nod to the Canadians. The International Skating Union announced a day after the competition that it would conduct an "internal assessment" into the judging decision. On February 15 the ISU and IOC, in a joint press conference, announced that it would award a second gold medal to Salé and Pelletier, and that Marie-Reine Le Gougne, the French judge implicated in collusion, was guilty of "misconduct" and was suspended effective immediately. Berezhnaya and Sikharulidze were allowed to keep their gold medal as well.

Complicating the issue is Le Gougne's subsequent recanting of her story of collusion.

Ice Dancing

Medals awarded Monday, February 18, 2002

Anissina, a Russian, emigrated to France after Averbukh, her former partner, left her to skate with Lobacheva. Lithuanian ice dancers Margarita Drobiazko and Povilas Vanagas, who finished fifth, filed a protest noting that they finished behind two couples who fell on the ice but did not receive required deductions in the judging. It was the first gold in Olympic figure skating for France since 1932.

The first compulsory dance was the Quickstep. The second was Blues.
