The "sport" of figure skating has adopted a new code of ethics. The five page document in the wake of last year's uproar involving the (GASP!!!) French judge's voting, who supposedly (double GASP!!!) gave in to pressure from the Russian and German judges. The Tonya Harding incident of ten years ago also played a role in the decision. Members of figure skating's governing body hope that the move will prevent future scandals.
That's probably true, but it will also make figure skating a hell of a lot less interesting.
