Bad Sport – Episode: Gold War

Bad Sport is a docuseries in which true crime and sports intersect to examine global controversies and scandals with firsthand accounts from those who were involved. One specific episode, entitled Gold War, focuses on the judging scandal that erupted during the pairs figure skating event at Salt Lake City 2002 when one judge was allegedly pressured to place a Russian duo higher than the Canadian pair of Jamie Salé and David Pelletier.

This hour long episode began streaming on Netflix on October 6, 2021.

It was expected that the battle for gold between Salé and Pelletier and Russians Elena Berezhnaya and Anton Sikharulidze would be tight. After the short program, it basically came down to whichever team won the free skate would win the gold medal. In the long programs, the Canadians had no noticeable errors while Sikharulidze had a slight miss on the landing of his double Axel. But when the scores were revealed, the Canadians were in second place on a 5-4 judges’ split which was stunning to most observers.

The scandal gained steam when French judge Marie-Reine Le Gougne told another official she was pressured to favour the Russians as part of an exchange that would benefit the French ice dance team later in the Games. The International Skating Union and International Olympic Committee investigated and announced that Salé and Pelletier would be upgraded to become co-gold medallists.

This documentary gives voice to the athletes who were unwillingly involved in this controversy, as well as to several American, Canadian and Russian experts, who lived it up close. We can see a preview of this episode’s content 50 seconds from the video below.

This episode of Absolutely Canadian puts the gold medal won by the Canadian relay quartet at the Atlanta 1996 Olympic Games in context. Bruny Surin, Robert Esmie and Glenroy Gilbert review their state of mind before the legendary race, speak to the rivalry that reigned with the American team and their performance which has now become history.

Even though we know how it ends, it’s a race that we never tire of watching! The relay is available on CBC Gem here.

And because we want to share everything we know about this legendary gold medal, we might also suggest this Team Canada Rewind that features four-time Olympian Bruny Surin.
