POST-WINTER OLYMPICS VERDICT:

Russia did not enjoy the best of Olympics and one of their crowning moments was overshadowed by the ongoing saga of ‘Skategate’.

Yevgeny Plushenko was overshadowed by both.

As the storm over the pairs raged on, Alexei Yagudin wowed the crowds and judges alike and gained the highest number of 6.0s in the history of the men’s Olympic competition.

Plushenko, the reigning world champion, also dazzled on the ice, but it was all a little too late.

He had already made a surprising and costly slip that had ultimately meant his performance was only good enough for silver behind his compatriot.
