Cam Cole: Canada looks destined for silver in Olympic team figure skating If there is anything at all — even a scrap of truth — to the story of a Russia-U.S. judging conspiracy, the deal must have been worked out a long time ago.A time when there was some doubt. A time, unlike this week, when the Russian figure skating team wasn’t sure it could win and wanted to shorten the odds.Those doubts, if they ever existed, have been blown away by a series of surpassing Russian performances in the first two days of the Olympic figure skating team competition — each more lustily cheered than the last by the host country’s loud, proud, chanting fans.And Canada, which came in as the No. 1-ranked skating country, looks destined to take silver. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. (Photo: Jean Levac/Postmedia Olympic Team)

If there is anything at all — even a scrap of truth — to the story of a Russia-U.S. judging conspiracy, the deal must have been worked out a long time ago.

A time when there was some doubt. A time, unlike this week, when the Russian figure skating team wasn’t sure it could win and wanted to shorten the odds.

And Canada, which came in as the No. 1-ranked skating country, looks destined to take silver. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. (Photo: Jean Levac/Postmedia Olympic Team)
