Alissa has Russia and Canada.

At the Russian event, she faces challenges from Asada, Ando, Leonova, Poykio, Sebestyen, Meissner and Wagner. Only Asada and Ando seem beyond reach. She could get a bronze.

At Skate Canada, the top non-Americans are Rochette and Lepisto. She could beat one or the other for the silver.

(Fly in the ointment: Zhang and Nagasu are also at Skate Canada.

Is this a pipe dream, or is anything possible?
