Last night's dramatic women's free skate figure skating competition proved why it's arguably the most anticipated event at the Winter Olympics.

Russia's Alina Zagitova won gold, while her friend, training partner, and (as NBC reminded us over and over and over) major rival, Evgenia Medvedeva took silver. Canada's Kaetlyn Osmond snagged bronze, and the Americans had their worst placing in women's figure skating in modern Olympic history.

According to CBS, at least one American woman since World War II — this year, Bradie Tennell, Mirai Nagsu, and Karen Chen finished 9th, 10th, and 11th, respectively.

But after watching Zagitova and Medvedeva's performances, it's hard to be bitter — except a lot of people are. The two athlete's tied in last night's free skate competition with a score of 156.65, but Zagitova's slightly higher score in the previous short program ultimately took her to the top in total points.

There's no doubt that the 15-year-old Russian prodigy put on technically brilliant and artistically elegant performances, but 18-year-old Medvedeva seemed to steal the hearts of viewers, who are saying she was "robbed" of her gold medal.

Robbery of the first order!

They are both wonderful ladies but Zhenya was straight-up robbed. Alina may backload her entire program, but she skates like a robot. Evgenia laid down the best Olympic performance of the night and deserved gold.

You were ROBBED. Scoring strategy should not win over flawless technical and artistic achievement. The points were rigged - she even botched a jump in the beginning. You deserved gold 10000000%.

She also likely felt "robbed" as Medvedeva was visibly upset after learning she landed second, and her coach (who is also Zagitova's coach) had to console her.
