Lysacek Gold: Olympic Mens Figure Skating: Johnny Weir Robbed?
Evan Lysacek wins Gold at Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games
Evan Lysacek has won Gold for the United States in the Men's Figure Skating competition in Vancouver on Thursday night. Lysacek's Gold medal was certainly well earned as beat out Evgeni Plushenko who didn't have the cleanest jumps, getting a silver. But the internet is all a twitter that Johnny Weir was robbed?
Some blogs and media outlets particularly from the gay and lesbian community say Johnny Weir got robbed
I am no skating expert, but it appeared to me like Weir got under-judged. Our skating writer Chad Conley, who was down on Weir pre-Olympics, left me a message that said, “Johnny got robbed tonight.”
At first when I saw the google trend Johnny Weir Robbed I thought some one had broke into his Olympic Village residence - now that would have been news. For the record Johnny Weir skated well and a 6th place at the Olympics is nothing to sneeze.
But perhaps the real issue is why did Plashenko not get the Gold?
