2017 World Figure Skating Championships
I just looked up results in Helsinki! What's going on? Fernández and Medvedeva were leading after the Short Programs, but the rest of the results were shocking outside of Chan in 3rd place! Caught it today and Medvedeva took the ladies' event! Looking forward to the guys tomorrow afternoon!

I haven't paid much attention since last '14 Olympics in Sochi! I had no idea the men had finally taken the sport to new heights with jumps I thought would eventually cripple these poor kids! When I was growing up, you weren't allowed to even attempt triples as a junior; now they're pushing 12 year old girls to perform regulation 4 min. LP's! I still SMH from about 20 years ago; I believe it was Trophy Lalique! The spoils were usually split evenly among the top skaters and this event was obviously already relegated to Maria Butyrskaya! Jennie Kirk couldn't have been more than 16; a petite little thing like Tara L. of old! She not only performed well, it was flawless, ending on a triple Lutz! Not even a pro skater does such a thing on tired legs! Maria was her usual stiff self, held onto a couple landings, and probably hit the ice at least once! She not only took the gold, Jennie was relegated to BRONZE! She wasn't established yet; probably her 1st Int'l event since Michelle Kwan usually just did Skate America and Canada! It's one of the reasons FS is still hard to watch! Even with the new scoring system, it's still one of the shadiest Int'l sports!
