141 I think was overscored, but yulia still deserves first place. Some people find her artistry “tasteless” – I think her artistry is better than any russian skaters I’ve ever watched. Very graceful, and if you watch “the story of yulia lipnitskaya” in youtube maybe you’d fully understand why her program is just incredible.

what is the point of this story Gracie and Yulia were in a team competition so gracie was working with the other american skaters just like Yulia was working with the other Russian skaters to get point to win. Yulia and the other Russian got gold because they skated better as a team compared to the US Team , so asking if Gracie was robbed of gold is not a real question because there was no way american could have won the gold in the team comp because as a team ,russia has stronger skaters . Gracie and Yulia have the ladies skate to compete against each other and be compared so maybe try this story again after they have both skated and not mislead your readers

Mika I’m not sure what competition you watched but gracie was def better and the judges are bias with favoring the girl from Russia if this compitition was anywhere else gracie would have won once again corrupt judges

The previous Guest is right! There was no gold to be “robbed of” in an individual performance. Even had Gracie won her skate over Yulia the only difference would have been the Russian team placing ahead of the US by 14 points rather than 15. :)

Gracie was deffinetely underscore and should have won. She skated a flawless and artistic program. She hit all 11 jumps with hight and precision her skate told a story and flowed with grace il believe anywhere else she would have won the judges are playing favorites for Tara this is a joke no way she was 12 PTs ahead this makes it hard to watch Olympis gracie had the skate of the night

Yulia was obviously better. Sure Gracie put the other 3 to shame last night, but when Yulia’s turn ended, there was no way she shouldn’t walk away without the Gold.

Did the person who wrote this article even saw the Russian performance?
That little girl did a way better number, she was spinning and jumping like no other and the dance part was flawless. She deserved that medal 100%

An unrelated aside: the Russian skater, Yulia Lipnitskaya, is Jewish. Interestingly, she skated to the theme of “Schindler’s List”…notably wearing a similar red dress as the young girl in the movie’s related scene. Thought you might find that interesting.

She doesn’t look Jewish because she is actually very pretty.

Why is that interesting? Yulia is a skater, and athlete who chose a specific musical piece, developed choreography to it, and performed the routine with an emotion that fit the musical score. There is nothing sinister, no conspiracy, no hidden message. Just take off the tinfoil hat, relax and enjoy the competition.
