Dear Ottavio Cinquanta,
Is it really appropriate to send an e-mail to the head of a skating federation asking them to have a skater compete to raise the profile of an event so the event is more profitable?
Trying to cover your ass are you? I pray the head of the Korean skating federation flat out says "no." I take enjoyment from seeing you fail...not sure why.
I assume you sent similar notes to the skating federations of China, US, Japan, and Canada. If you didn't...well that would make you lame!
It's an Olympic Year so competitors aren't going to exhaust themselves with this very poorly timed and placed event. In an Olympic Year this event needs to be moved...I don't know where but move it somewhere...
And stop begging...it's unbecoming of an ISU President.
