What an interesting list. I see Irina Slutskaya is not competing. Also, I think that in two years world junior champion Yukina Ota will have a better shot than either Arakawa or Onda -- and maybe Miki Ando should be there, too.
A lot can happen in two years. Maybe AP MacDonough or Bebe Liang will be a factor.
Anyway, I voted for Fumie to edge out Sasha for the gold. There are lots of interesting possibilities.
I personally think that Michelle will go and will make the podium, but not necessarily in first place.
I've voted for Fumie, but I guess it's just hope and wishful thinking. Well, we'll see and find a winning Lady for sure, no matter if Kwan competes or not. It wouldn't change anything! :D
LOL, sorry, there has been a mistake! Of course Slutskaya should be on the list as well...
Well, if these were the only candidates, I would go for Elena Sokolova She looks as if she will skate on forever without getting tired or injured.
None of the above. Torino (in Italian) or Turin (in English) will have a rivalry between Yukina Ota and Bebe Liang for gold! Remember you heard it here first.
Sasha. As soon as she gets a grip on her nerves and gains consistency.
Fumie, because I just think Sasha needs more consistency and I an a fan of Fumie.
It's much too soon to tell. Everything can happen till then.
I think Yukina Ota and Miki Ando should be on the list.
I didn't vote for any of them because I am betting it is someone that we don't really "know" yet. A suprise like Tara and Sarah. But, if I had to guess, I would say Sasha Cohen. The talent is there.
I would guess some little American girl that we have barely heard of.
Either Kostner or Miki Ando
No Irina, no Michelle? Then why Elena or Arakawa?
IIRC, Elena is at the same age as Irina and both one year old than Michelle.
I go with Mathman's assesment.
Windspirit, I agree so here is what I think. I HOPE that Sasha will do it in 2006.It's much too soon to tell. Everything can happen till then.
