Men: Gold-Lambiel, Silver-Buttle, Bronze-Othman
Ladies: Gold-Suguri, Silver-Volchkova, Bronze-Rochette
Pairs: Gold-Pang/Tong, Silver-Dube/Davison, Bronze-Marcoux/Buntin
Dance: Gold-Delobel/Schoenfelder, Silver-Drobiazko/Vanagas, Bronze- Dubreuil/Lauzon
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.

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!

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 MUST SAY, THE MEMBERS OF GOLDEN SKATE ARE VERY DIVERSIFIED IN THEIR HOPES.
I LIKE THAT!!!!
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.
