In a letter addressed to the members of the ISU councils, Ottavio Cinquanta, the president of ISU (International Skating Union) proposed changes in figure skating, including the abolition of the short program and introducing the individual performances in all five of the sport’s disciplines.
According to Chicago Tribune, Cinquanta tags the initiatives as “opinions”.
Cinquanta’s reason for cancellation of the short program is mainly due to a fact that “no other sports are based on two segments.”
The way Cinquanta uses his logic is exactly the reminiscent of how the ISU tries to justify their fraudulent crime in Sochi. The number of segments in figure skating competition has nothing to do with what figure skating faces today since Sochi Scandal.
It also shows Cinquanta’s magnanimous ego. Does he really think that the over one hundred year old sport has to change because of his moronic number theory?
Then we will have to close down figure skating first, because no sports are judged as arbitrarily as figure skating.
In his defense of anonymity of figure skating judges, Cinquanta insists that “nobody can detect which score has been decided by which judge” and proposes “simplifying the scoring system”.
As apparent in his letter, Cinquanta has no clue of his position right now. As a chief culprit of Sochi Scandal, he ought to be impeached for his mishandling of the sport and corruption.
The letter shows how Cinquanta has brooded Sochi Scandal and the judging system has become an accessory to the ISU’s systematic manipulation. Since 2013 Worlds the ISU internally shifted the judging policy, which not only opens to arbitrary judging but also denies the validity itself.
After having driven a knife into the very heart of the sport, Cinquanta turns a blind eye to why figure skating had to face the untimely death.
Cinquanta is not an incompetent imbecile; he is a willful criminal to the sport.
Cinquanta has to go.
Nothing is wrong with short program, and nothing is wrong with the COP system . What is wrong is Cinquanta and his corrupt members of the ISU who use the sport to their political gain and impede the operation of judging system by exercising their power to induce a fraudulent outcome such as Sochi.
Their crime is constitutional violation against the sport integrity, therefore invokes an internal investigation by an international consortium. Sochi Scandal is a calculated internal corruption.
It’s a time for the international federations to motion his impeachment on the ground of Sochi fraud and mishandling of judging system. Cinquanta’s leadership turned the ISU to a den of crooks whoring with moral decadence.
Cinquanta and his leadership have been poison to figure skating. It a time to end the root of evil.
