    Which Skater (despite the odds) You Hope Skates His/Her Best?

    My picks would be:

    Ladies: Jenni Vahamaa

    Men: Vaughan Chipeur

    Pairs: no pick. (they withdrew)

    Dance: Copley/Stagniunas

    None of them will make the podium, imo, but I like them anyway.

    Jenni Vahamaa withdrew over a week ago.

    As Chuckm noted, Jenni's out. The ISU lists only 11 ladies for CoR. I would like to see Kimmie Meissner deliver a good performance; the placement is less important.

    I would also like to see Cappelini/Lanotte on the podium, which considering the way the have been judged so far would require an amazing performance. Also, I hope the Zaretskis skate much better than at CoC, and that Voloshozar/Morozov win the pairs - again, this would require a very strong performance. And of course, I want Brian Joubert to skate like himself and not like last week; considering the way his season started, I'm not sure what the odds are on that.

    ok With Jenni out, Glebova or Meissner.

    I would also like to see Cappelini/Lanotte on the podium, the Zaretskis with a better showing than at CoC, and Voloshozar/Morozov win the pairs. And of course, I want Brian Joubert to skate like himself and not like last week.
    they are all kind of considered for a medal. Really, looking for the downtrodden and looked over ones you kind of like but do not have a chance..

    The Zaretskis have a chance? This year? There is no way they can win a medal. I'm worried they may finish lower at Euros and Worlds compared to last year.

    My first choice for pairs withdrew (Castile/Okolski). But there is still Volosozhar/Morosov; if they land on the podium here will that get them to the GPF?

    Dance: I'd like to see Davis/White prove that a Russian team can be beaten in Russia just so that there's no "conspiracy theories." The same goes for Anna/Luca as well. For me, those are the two teams I'd most like to see on the podium. I also hope that Copely/Stagniunas skate better than at SA; I'm really beginning to like them.

    Ladies: Kimmie! I just want her to get her jumps back, and better than ever! I want her to skate with confidence again.

    Men: It may be a bit against the odds (I just don't know), but I'd like to see Abbott overcome the nerves again and prove he's a real contender. I'd also like to see Rippon land his 3A and look happier than he did at SA.

    Kimmie!!! I believe in her, and I hope she believes in herself and gains her confidence back. I also want Alissa to skate well, and hopefully skate a clean SP!
