Do you know any good websites for figure skating stats and records?

http://winter-olympic-memories.com/

Has every single score of every single portion of competition from the Olympic Games. It is remarkable.

As far as other scores/results, the last few years have seen so many great resources disappear, however--

http://www.eiskunstlauf-ecke.de/archive.shtml

This website by Tino Eberl has competition records that go back 20+ years. While the rankings in individual segments and the scores themselves aren't posted, it's one of the only places you can find results for earlier competitions. I have a feeling much of Wikipedia's competition results listings were taken from this site.

Hope that helps!

Ask me a question about figure skating!

For the 2010 OG, check out this site, it breaks down all the components/ levels & scores. Just click on the + icon to the right of the scores for the breakdowns.

Here's the men's SP:

This is where some skaters lost the competition. Johnny's lack of choreo/ transitions really showed in his scores, 7.45 for transitions/ 7.9 for skating skills, ouch. Johnny also got only 2 level 4s on his technical elements, everyone ahead of him got at least 3 level 4s.

Lambiel got -1.92 for only doing a botched 4t/ 2t instead of planned 4t/ 3t. There went his chance of medalling. However every category of PCS (choreo/ transition/ interpretation/ skating skills) was highest of the night.

Plushenko's weaknesses also was exposed here. 6.80 for transitions, double ouch! Had he worked more on PCS he would've gotten gold.

Chan had a level 1 spin so lost some points there. Plus he got -2.52 on his failed 3a, on top of -1.00 for time violation.


men's LP:

Pretty laughable how Plushenko got lots of undeserved +GOE for his jumps & elements. Also 8.75 for interpretation? Higher than the next highest scoresr Lambiel & Takahashil? What were judges smoking?

@Anonymous #2 "What were judges smoking?"

I don´t know, maybe the same thing they smoked before scoring Lysacek? No wait, for Lysacek they used something stronger, to keep them awake during the performance!!!!!!
