Olympic hopes and funding are important to a lot of sports associations so whinging about needing judging makes zero sense as many sports have a style component ..gymnastics notably, diving, etc.
Having a mix is fine.
Getting the national bias out of the judging is critical and I like what the figure skating has done with their judging to lose the scandals.

Despite the downsides ....sports diplomacy has a long history and notably with Korea just now ( ping pong for China )

Nice to see Canada with another gold...
