Questions were raised over the judges' decision to award Russia's Adelina Sotnikova the gold medal in women's singles figure skating over Yuna Kim of South Korea at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Critics note that one of the judges had been suspended for a year for trying to fix an event at the Winter Olympics 16 years before and that another is married to the head of the Russian figure skating federation.
