    Unfortunately, Nakano did not make the Japanese ladies' World team this year. She managed to only finish 5th at Nationals. The Japan World team will consist of Asada, Suguri, and Ando.

    And I am going to be really mean and say the skaters I really DON'T want to medal:

    Ladies
    Granny (although I don't think she will), Joannie Rochette
    I know some people love these skaters (esp. Joannie) but I just don't like their styles (I know I know, I must be crazy because I like Carolina and not Joannie who is apparently SO MUCH BETTER but whatever, I like what I like). I think Joannie's long program suffers in comparison to MK's 2003 version.

    Men
    Evan Lysacek, Brian Joubert

    Pairs
    Zhang/Zhang, Savchenko/Szolkowy (their short program is the single worst thing I have ever seen in my life).

    Dance
    Delobel/Schoenfelder

    This will be fun...:chorus:

    Men
    Patrick Chan (Would that make him one of the youngest mens world champs ever?)
    Nobunari Oda (Is he going to worlds??)
    Yannik Ponsero (Love his new style this season.)

    Ladies
    Joannie Rochette (She's had the season of her life, and her programs are actually worthy of the title this year.)
    Yu-Na Kim (I adore her SP, and love how much her expression has improved.)
    Asada

    Pairs
    Dube/Davison (Their artistry is paralleled only by the Germans (IMO), and I'd love to see them get rewarded for it like lasy year.)
    Savchenko/Szolkowy (They're awesome.)
    Pang/Tong

    Ice Dance
    Virtue/Moir (If anyone can pull off the impossible, its them.)
    Delobel/Schoenfelder (Still the classiest team around, and I'd love to see them succeed again this year.)
    Davis/White (Their FD is definately worthy of a world medal.)

    I know, I know, i'm being completely biased, but hey, a girl can dream.

    1 - Glenn ( = Jeremy)

    I can't think of a younger one. Dick Button was 18 years 8 months when he won worlds in 1948 (he was robbed in 1947 ). Evgeny Plushenko was 18 years 4 months when he won in 2001.

    Partick will be 18 years two-and-a-half months old in mid-March.

    Yagudin was born on 18th March 1980 and became World Champion at Worlds 1998, those Championships were from the 29th March till 5th April 1998.

    Quote from Iceskatinginternational
    Yadugin is the second youngest men's World Champion, just 6 days older than the record holder, Donald MacPherson of Canada.
