    Not necessarily. They wait until after 2010 U.S. Nationals to decide, and the placement at Nationals is the most important consideration.

    Yes, I know that, but I mean if you think about the skaters who were on the team the year before the Olympics, they seem to end up on the Olympic team.

    Based on the current situation, I'll say Flatt and Zhang. A lot can change, though.

    Wagner could pull it together next year. That girl sounds just as smart and driven as Flatt. I think she's just been going through some artistic growing pains this past year. And I certainly won't rule out Nagasu.

    After seeing her 2007 Nationals FS, I really believe Alyssa is one of the most talented skaters in the world. I realize she is somewhat of a risk, but I think if she could pull together two relatively clean programs, she'd really be in contention for a medal in 2010. I'd love to see her there.

    ^ it would be cool if Alyssa got to go to an Olympics...

    She had a legit shot in '06 though and blew it BIG.

    I too think Alissa & Flatt will be on the team. The third spot is a toss between Mirai, Ashley & Zhang.

    Do you really think we're going to have to worry about who will get a third spot?

    I know there would be only two spot but I chose three anyway.

    Rachael-consistent
    Sasha-feels like complete version of Alissa and Caroline and I'm worried about Caroline's jumps
    Ashley-just love her style

    Right now, I think Rachael and Caroline is the most obvious answer to this question. The poll also reflects that. My personal dream US Olympic team is Sasha and Ashley. But I think if Sasha comes back, it's still more likely to be Sasha and Rachael because unless Rachael bombs the GP and Ashley shines, it's unlikely Ashley will make the Olympic team over Rachael. If Sasha does not come back, I'll hope for Rachael and Ashley. Big underdogs to make the team (they're underdogs because the didn't have a very good 2008-2009 season) are Kimmie and Mirai.
    I'd be very surprised if Alissa or Bebe or any of the JGP skaters made the Olympic team.

    well I voted when this poll was brand new...

    I'll put Ashley and Rachel on the team now if I could.
