In the end, it was gold and smiles for the Russians and Canadians.
A Spotlight
Too Bright

Figure skating always draws the attention at the Olympics, but this is getting ridiculous. A judging controversy in the pairs set a tone that carried on for two weeks, and throughout the Utah countryside. By the end of the Olympics, almost everyone in every sport was trying to get their own personal injustices overturned. It all left Jim Caple wondering if anyone won at all.
 
• French skating head: Second gold 'nonsense'
• Caple: Ice War | Ice War II | Isn't it sweet | Cry Zone
• ISU's investigation continues in April | Judge felt pressure


A 16-year-old was there to save the day
In its simplest terms, sports comes down to athletes performing at their peak in their biggest arenas. Sarah Hughes brought figure skating back its simplest terms. The 16-year-old American performed a near-perfect, and quite difficult, long program, and was rewarded with gold. Media darling Michelle Kwan was not so fortunate.

Caple: Cold front still alive
