Quite a bad comparison, since in swimming they did so with suits that became illegal after a while. Here everything falls into place (top shape, top conditions, everything), which might happen again even though it'd take some years.

 

here there's nothing "falling into place"...

it's either "doped ice" or "doped guys"..if not both (most probably)...:evil::whistle::pope:

Yeah in that factor it's most likely not different from any other sport, but pretty much everyone agrees that these specific weeks are because of top shape and top ice, otherwise they'd have been way faster in the run-up to the Olympics instead of in the non-important post-Olympic season.

Yuskov might have gotten back his WR if he didn't lose one and a half second by not shaving :p

Hahaha, Murashov and Kulizhnikov trolling everyone and their dog in the very last, super mega hyped race of the season....by going slow, opening in 11+ and finishing in nearly 40 seconds :rofl::bowdown:

According to a Russian coach it was because of 'little physical problems' and they only wanted to start to secure the World Cup points, but of course nobody believes that :d 

 

Mark Tuitert and Erben Wennemars on Dutch TV are absolutely mad as fuck, steam is basically shooting straight out of their ears :lol:  Sure, it was incredibly disrespectful but also hilarious :d

Kulizhnikov to Dutch TV: "I won 7 of the 11 500m's and still that doesn't mean you win the World Cup, that's not fair." After which he also apologized to the people

Translation (from someone else) of his interview with Dutch TV:

 

Quote

• When first asked about the reasons why he had done this, he replied that he had had enough injuries and doesn't want to risk his health. He assumed that the ice was really bad as it had not been prepared after the previous race.

• Pavel doesn't agree with the rules. He mentioned that he doesn't like the fact that he has to start in the same lane as yesterday as well as the fact that he was not leading the classification after several wins. 

• He also mentioned that he did it "because he has already won 7 races out of 10" and so no reason to take the risk.

• He noted that if Shinhama rode the WR he would've gone fast.

• Finally, when asked about this attitude towards the noises of ingratitude coming from the tribunes, Pavel replied: "It was just a couple of people".

• In the end, he apologized.
