Relive the glory of the 2002 Winter Olympics figure skating competition — without the controversy.

You may recall the judging scandal that rocked the Salt Lake Games. After the French judge admitted she was pressured into voting for Russians Elena Berezhnaya and Anton Sikharulidz, the IOC awarded a second set of gold medals to Canadian pair Jamie Sale and David Pelletier.

Sale and Pelletier will be back in EnergySolutions Arena on Saturday, Feb. 18, at 7 p.m. They’ll be joined by American gold medalist Sarah Hughes, Todd Eldredge and skaters from Stars on Ice for a program that includes highlights from 2002 as well as new performances.

Oh, and Mitt Romney — who was president and CEO of the Salt Lake Organizing Committee in 2002 — is also scheduled to take time out from his presidential campaign to make an appearance.
