US Figure Skating Champ Ashley Wagner moves into fifth in figure skating short program

The Olympic games in Sochi are in full swing with many events already over and several still to go. One of the most popular events at the winter games is figure skating. The US two time champion Ashley Wagner currently sits in fifth place in the women's short program with three people left to compete reports The Washington Post.

Wagner was docked points for under rotating one of her tricks in the beginning of her routine. She was given full credit for the triple flip. Where she was docked came on the triple toe that followed those flips.

The routine was performed to the Pink Floyd track "Shine n You Crazy Diamond." Wagner has struggled with the triple triple all season according to reports. The triple triple is something that is believed to be a requirement if she wants to win a medal at the Olympics this year.

The leader now in the women's short program is Kim Yu-na followed by Russian skater Adelina Sotnikova. Third place in the standings right now is Italian Carolina Kostner. The top US skater is Gracie gold in fourth place, with fifth place going to Julia Lipnitskaia, who fell during one of her jumps. The event isn’t over yet, but it is looking unlikely for Wagner to medal right now.

Michael Phelps no stranger to defeat

Source: Salt Lake Tribune

Irvine, Calif. • Michael Phelps has always fed off adversity. Not that the most decorated Olympian has faced much in the pool. Until now. Phelps lost all four of his races at the recent U.S. national championships. Hardly shocking for a guy who is four months out of retirement, but somewhat surprising for someone who already owns 53 national titles. Phelps, though, is focused on his long-term goal of competing in a fifth Olympics in 2016. “I’d rather lo ...

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
