    I am not sanguine about Tugba's chances in the GP.

    Her SP program jump content: 3T+2T (-GOE), 3S, 2A

    Her FS program jump content:
    3T+2T+2L, 2F+2T, 3S+2T, 3T, 3S, 2A.

    She doesn't have triple lutz, triple flip or triple loop. She has mostly level4 spins and spiral sequence, but the GOE on her non-jump moves is mostly 0s.

    She does consistently land her jumps, but the difficulty just isn't there.

    Jamal Othman didn't get any GP events, so he can't be on the GPF podium.

    With the exception of Pang/Tong, Suguri and Drobiazko/Vanagas, all your other choices are not on my "hope" list.

    Hope that for next seasons she will have also the other triples. It will be an historical result for Turkey to be in the top 10 at Worlds. And about next season GP, it is just good that she has a spot. Good luck Tugba!

    I can't do this. Like for the Olympics, I have about eight choices for the Men's podium, and a handful for each of the others

    My hope for Karademir is that she gets the scores she deserves, maintains a personal best that qualifies her for the future, and adds to her ISU rating.

    Assuming they are all skating this year, I'm hoping that Berntsson, Zelenka, and Othman are in line to replace any skaters who need to withdraw.

    BTW, every pair that competed in one of the qualifying events last season had a top 75 personal best

    I'm going to miss Berntsson, Zelenka and a healthy Othman, this GPs. Maybe they will show them at Euros.

    If CCTV5 from China continues to broadcast the same amount of skating, they should be shown over the Internet and be available for download.

The western media frequenty portray Turkish women as secluded and oppressed. But the last time I visited the country, I could see more women in tanktops (smoking cigarettes at beach cafes) than those wearing hijabs. I guess it's just the fact that I don't like personal factors overshadowing the actual performance. Why should the audience have to care how much Katy Taylor has to save towards her pink hummer?

    My only hope is that Emily Hughes is using this time to take off 15 pounds. If she does not, she might be finished, but, given what's been given her, I think she will be there. She has what it takes, no question. It's her competitive spirit and her raw talent.

    However, if she's stupid and eating all sorts of donuts, ice cream, sugared soft drinks, then Kimmie will be the only American.
