    Who will be OFF the podium at World's this year?

    Which skater(s) will be surprised to find him/herself OFF the World podium this year? Some did not compete last year, but I believe they expect to find themselves on the World podium nevertheless.

    Note that all choices are former World medalists.

    MK will be there regardless of how she skates.
    Cupcake is going to have to fight for it.
    So will Fumei.
    Irina is a total X factor here, I have no idea how shes doing

    Yags will have to fight but I I hope he is on the podium.
    Plush will be on I think
    So will tim.

    Interesting not only is your favorite skater not on this list, you do not even allow others, ______________ fill in the blank as an option.

    Do here is my poll

    choice a: Realtorgal is so confident that one of her favorite skaters will make the (world) podiium (tempting skating gods?)

    or choice b: Realtorgal is not confident that one of her favorite skaters will make the podium, therefore she is not an option.

    PS

    I just wish all skaters do their best, those are the most exciting competitions to watch

    If my favorite skater (Sasha) were to NOT make the podium, this would not be a surprise as she has NEVER stood on the World podium. Therefore, she cannot be included in this poll. If you would care to notice, all other choices have already been World medalists.

    BTW, our polls on this board are meant in good humor. You may not have noticed that being a relatively new poster. We do try to avoid insulting each other.

    Fumie. I think there are too many artistically ahead of her. But I've only watched her skate twice, I think.

    All of them. Michelle and Irina won't compete and the ladies' finishing order will be Sasha, AP, Vicka, Elena L., Yukina, and Miki.

    Mathman, you can't really believe that Michelle won't compete at World's this year! No way!

    Really, you better be offering a lot of sacrifice to the skating gods. Just look at the numbers in my sig line.

    OK, OK, Fumie for Gold!

    RealtorGal, I don't know about Michelle's intentions this year. She is still fooling around in Hong Kong instead of trying to get a program together for the Campbell's Soup Bowl a month away. There may be a possibility that she will say, I'm having so much fun, who needs the aggravation?

    Last year I think that the main reasons she competed were, (1) she did so well when she was roped into doing Skate America that it got her competitive juices flowing again, and (2) she wasn't impressed with what the other ladies were doing and figured, I can beat that standing on my head. This year, it may be a different story.

    I think Yags. He won't be recovered from his injury and all.

    I voted for Petrova and Tikhonov not being on the podium (wishful thinking on my part)..........

    Uh.......and Michelle's always on the World podium every year because she's.........oh, off the top of my head........a great skater?
