Whom should you be rooting for in the Ladies' Olympic Figure Skating competition scheduled for Wednesday, February 19 and Thursday, February 20?

There are, after all, so many elements that go into making a winning program. Judges are looking at jumps, spins, footwork, spirals, connecting moves, musicality and artistic presentation.

You could spend years acquainting yourself with the intricacies of the sport, the new Code of Points, the subtle differences between an inside and an outside edge, not to mention a Lutz and a Salchow jump, or a Donut Spin versus a Biellmann.

Or, you could sit back, relax, and let television make the decisions for you.

They would really, really prefer it if you did.

Find out why, as well as behind the scenes stories about Peggy Fleming, Janet Lynn, Tai & Randy, Irina Rodnina, Tonya Harding, Oksana Bauil, Michelle Kwan and this year's Sochi 2014 Olympic Figure Skating team at:,0
