Skaters dismiss report of collusion between Russia, USA

SOCHI, Russia – Twelve years after the judging scandal in figure skating that rocked the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics, at least a report of judges in collusion entered the mix during the team competition Saturday night at the Sochi Olympics.
The French magazine L’Equipe reported earlier in the day that a deal was in place between judges from Russia and the USA to help Americans Meryl Davis and Charlie White in ice dancing – at the expense of 2010 Canadian Olympic champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir – and thereby help Russia win the gold in the first Olympic team event.
