    Predictions: 2007 World Juniors FS Championships

    So - now that we are getting fairly close to the event - any predictions as to whom will come in 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each of the championship competitions?

    With all the Americans entered, there just might be an American sweep.

    Don't get this one wrong, but I really hope there won't be any sweeps. It would make the entire thing really boring.

    I hope that:
    German man makes Top 10 - most likely Philipp Tischendorf will go. he just went to a training camp with Mishin
    German lady - Brigitte Blickling qualifying for the free skate and placing better than 25th
    German ice dances make Top 15

    No problem Saundra. I am of the best man that night ilk. I'm just going by the results of the JGPs. I do like a diversified nationality result.

    I strongly believe that there will be a American Sweep of all four gold medals and possibly an American sweep of the Men's podium

    Thumbs up

    I have to say that after seeing the download of Carriere's JGP Exhibition performance that I would expect to see him in Germany in March '07.

    Have to agree with you. US Nats Men's Division is not necessarily the two expected ones and third place will be up for grabs regardless.

    There are so many American ladies that could be sent (each with a very realistic chance at medalling too!)

    Zhang, Wagner, Flatt, Nagasu, Bulanhagui, Rosenthal, Cannarozzo, Oster....what depth the U.S. has in junior ladies!

    If it was up to me, I'd send Zhang, Nagasu, & Flatt.

    With Rachael's fine showing in senior nationals, I think that ought to be a lock. Interestingly, the one that has yet to be tested is the U.S. junior champion.
