    I love your picture of Kozuka. He looks so fierce.

    My dream Finish for the ladies is not quite clear-cut, but I can tell you such a podium would be missing Mao Asada and Kim Yu Na.

    I want to see just the older guys on the podium. Nobody under the age of 22 need apply .

    I'd love for Carolina Kostner to get a medal/win with two good performances. I'm not counting on it, though.

    Dance - for the Kerrs to get a medal would be really cool but probably unlikely. I can't imagine they'll continue after next year, Sinead is already 30 and John is 28 or 29. And I'd like to see Del/Schoe defend their title.

    Pairs: S/S, D/D, and V/M, in whatever order.

    There are some skaters I'd rather see off the podium, but I decline to say which ones as I prefer this to be a positive thread.

    Sorry Khokhlova/Novitski, can't find a place to put you in top 3, well well, there is next time.


    Ok, I will be over the Moon if Ponsero(all time favorite with yagudin) wins the title and hopefully Olympics.

    I will be happy if Maxim(Shabalin) doesn't screw up at the worlds, if he does She (Domnina) should find a new partner, may be Kostomorov

    and

    Mukhortova/ Trankov will have a Free program free of mistake(at this point it is close to nominated for 8th Wonder)

    Apologies in advance for distasteful English, it is not my 1st language and can't find a means to improve it.

    It's not so impossible. I mean, this season is so unpredictable. We could see anyone of the top men wins the gold (how many are they? five, six?)
    Sometimes an underdog skates a good short program, and while everybody talk about the most famous skaters who could do this and that, the underdog skate a perfect long, the others fall and ta-ta! a surprising winner.
    Anyway don't forget Samuel Contesti! He will surprise you, I'm sure.
    ah, and don't worry about your English. I make horrible mistakes sometimes but the people here is so kind that don't point it out to me

    GiuliaPlum, I your signature picture of Jeremy. Also, I'd be very delighted at a podium that included Abbott, Ponsero, and Contesti in any order. I love them all so much!

    Honestly, I'm a fan of so many of the men that my dream podium changes a lot in this particular discipline. So many of them are so wonderful!

    I think the last reigning world champion to win the OGM was Scott Hamilton. For the men, anyway.
