Admittedly, I'm talking out of my neck here...but I think we are way to quick to blame something on a small confounding variable. Meaning...sure it could be contributing, but prove it. It could also be subpar ice conditions, a bad lunch, fatigue (from carrying your toilet paper to the bin), any number of things.
I understand we are talking about precision athletes who need everything tip-top to reach their potential...but from what I've seen about the Sochi games, NOTHING is tip-top.
I agree 100%...it makes absolutely no sense to have not tested them adequately before using them on the worlds biggest stage...not a wise move IMO.
