German Worlds Team
Germany is finally sending some skaters to Worlds who won't necessarily win. I think the new powers that be at the federation understand that experience is a good thing.
Men: Stefan Lindemann
Ladies: Kristin Wieczorek
Pairs: Aliona Savchenko / Robin Szolkowy ; Mari-Doris Vartmann / Florian Just
Dance: Nelli Zhiganshina / Alexander Gazsi
Penny & Nick!
Oh, I'm sad the Beiers aren't ready to return.
All Hail Queen Yu-Na!!!!!!
Interested to see how Savchenko and Szolkowy will factor in after their oh-so inflated scores at Europeans??????
Penny & Nick!
They were fabulous in the LP, and could beat the Chinese IMO.
ITA, and in person in the LP, they were the smoothest I've ever seen them.

I don't think S/S's scores were inflated at all. Their FS performance was one of the best Pairs performances I've seen. Shen Zhao are amazing, too, but they aren't quite keeping up with their music and their sbs spins are not as good as S/S's.
No doubt in my mind: the Chinese will not sweep the podium this year. Two spots, yes, but not three. One is reserved (deservedly) for S/S.
