Should sports with style judges be in the Olympics?

Martin Bell, Very Happy - he's got a point (but I still say dressage isn't a sport, even by his criteria wink)

I would imagne that problem with the Ice Skating judging is that is a very small world all the judges know the trainers and visa-versa. This leads to buggings turn marking ie you have to do your number of years on the circuit before you can be given good marks. This explains when a established person or pair has a diaster they still get good marks. If you were a onknown skater and preformed perfectly you would not win.

No; style judges should either disqualify a 'sport' such as ice prancing, or be done away with (humanely) in sports with a significant non-subjective element, such as ski jumping.

The question is not whether something is assessed subjectively but whether it is capable of objective assessment. A ref may make a mistake about whether something was or was not a foul, or whether or not a ball crossed a line, but these are objective questions. Which pair of big tarts looks prettiest cavorting about on an ice rink is not an objective question.

Any activity which requires participants to dress like 1970s eastern European working girls should be disqualified (ice dancing, this means you).
