The South Korean Olympic Committee has protested the results of the women's figure skating competition, although the sport's international governing body said Saturday it has not yet received the letter.
With the pressure off and no medals at stake, it was time for the Olympic figure skaters to have some fun.
Highlights from television coverage of the Sochi Olympics:
South Koreans still love Yuna Kim. The judges, however, are another matter.
President Vladimir Putin congratulated Adelina Sotnikova on Friday, hailing the 17-year-old Russian figure skater who "won and conquered."
Russia's newest star in figure skating says she wants to add a lot more gold to her collection.
Russia's figure skaters meekly left the Vancouver Olympics four years ago with just one silver medal.
Any sport without a finish line or clock or some definitive standard is subject to skepticism about the results. It has happened at the Olympics before, and now it's happened at Sochi after Adelina Sotnikova skated away with the gold medal, the first for a Russian woman in the individual event.
Leave it to figure skating and judging, where winning can be obscured by whining.
Yuna Kim's career ended Thursday night with an Olympic silver medal.
Adelina Sotnikova of Russia wins Olympic gold in women's figure skating.
Kim got silver, followed by Carolina Kostner of Italy for bronze. Kim was trying to be the first repeat winner of the women's gold since Katarina Witt in 1988.
Russia's cupboard was so bare of world-class female figure skaters that the sport's most dominant nation had to turn to the kids a few years ago.
As Adelina Sotnikova finished her gold medal-winning skate, only the Olympic ice felt nothing, because it is cold and hard. Russian hearts - passionate, patriotic and on this night bursting with warmth - melted for their new champion.
Adelina Sotnikova won the women's figure skating gold medal at the Sochi Olympics pretty much because of one extra triple jump.
"I am only here to skate," she said.
While the free skate on Friday could determine which of the three Russians will fill the host country's two slots at the Olympic Games in Sochi next month, Sotnikova said she did not have the internal competition on her mind.
