    This feels like my nightmare podium - except for Kurt

    Maybe Canadian Prancers B/K could get a special merit badge - no team was ever so consistently undermarked soley for their nationality

    And you might be underestimating Yuna

    HEHE but YuNa and Johnny *heart* each other.

    And I don't recognize B/K. I can only think of a Whopper.

    Let's face it - as soon as Lambiel became available to skate with Yuna at COI (Cheesefesta On Ice ) Johnny was dropped like a hot potato.

    I honestly don't think this will work since I'm very sure Joubert will decline to be throwed out by Takahashi right-out. But ths reverse is fine. In fact, more than fine. They will definitely make a beautiful pair.

    Great podiums BTW!
    (ETA: the only thing is I don't want to see Zhang/Zhang on the podium. But I'm not that crazy about pairs anyway. I think I can live with them getting bronze )

    LOL oops! Takahashi/Joubert.

    The Zhang/Zhang is a sentimental thing.

    Men

    1) Yagudin
    2) Plushenko
    3) Lambiel

    Ladies

    1-2) Slutskaya/Mao
    3-4) Ando/ Kim

    Pairs

    1) Mishkutenok /Dmitriev
    2) Bereznaya/Sikharulidze
    3-4) Ando/ Voronov (I know it was Medusa joke, but i liked the concept of them skating pairs together)/ Savchenko/Szolkowy

    Ice Dancing

    1) Domnina/Shabalin
    2)Lobacheva/Averbukh
    3-4) Anissina/ Peizerat & Grichuk/Platov

    Not surprisingly the list ended up looking very Russian..... Except for Voronov, everyone on the list has a olympic medal, or very likely to have them after 2010.
