YEKATERINBURG, February 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian sports achievers told a news conference on Thursday of the skill and professionalism of Russia's judges at the Sochi Olympics, who have avoided the mistakes made by their predecessors at the 2010 Vancouver Games.
Bronze winner in cross-country skiing at the 2006 Turin Olympics Ivan Alypov noticed no judging mistakes in skiing, biathlon and other disciplines, while Kontinental Hockey League judge Stanislav Raming noted competent judging in hockey which “demonstrated professionalism in difficult and disputable games”.
Punishment for mistakes should not be toughened as judges were disqualified for incorrect rulings, were made to miss games and could not earn a living, which was “adequate punishment", Raming said.
