We have some really strong skaters out there. The top Men have all been in Olys before, but some are all new to this ultimate of events. The top Ladies, I believe are all brand new. This will be a new Era for Ladies skating in all the upcoming competitions. Pairs will be some close calls during the season of the top Pairs teams, and Skate Dance do not seem to challenge for the podium, let alone, win the event.
The season will begin in October and travel all the way to the Olys, and for some the Worlds.
Will Joubert retire after the Olys? or after the Worlds? or not at all?
Plushenko, Weir, Lysacek, Verner?
Will Mao and YuNa hang around for another Olys? Will they skate 2010 Worlds?
What about the young American Ladies?
Joannie, Sarah Meier, Carolina ?
Lots of Pairs and Skate Dancers.
Appreciate your thoughts on Retirements after 2010,
