Why did the U.S. get a better seed than Russia in the women's olympic tourney?
Russia ranked higher in their division and also got more points than the U.S., yet the U.S. got the bye and Russia didn't.

The US is a superior team to Russia, played against harder competition. The IOC rigged the format to stop Canada and the US appearing so dominant.
