In a surprise win Shizuka Arakawa won the gold in the Ladies Free Skate tonight. While her program wasn't thrilling, it was the only flawless one, and it put her FAR ahead of the other competitors. I should be happy that Sasha Cohen came in second, but lets be honest, she deserved nothing. Maybe her skating is fluid and artistic (in my opinion the most artistic of those who skated tonight) but tonight was not a shining performance. She fell too much and too hard. Too bad for Slutskaya, she was robbed of the silver. But whatever the result, it made for an exciting night of skating...see you in four years!
