    Is there anybody who thinks that Kim won't win this? Or shall I make it more realistic and ask who think she will win by fewer than 15 points?

    You aren't serious, are you?

    Well, a win is a win regardless of whether it's by 1 point or by 40.

    Not just the consistency. It's also that Road Runner Speed.

    The contest is between Sasha and Rachael for silver and Rachael needs that silver or goodbye to GPFinal.

    As for Yu-Na, it would be more interesting to predict her score or how many mistakes she will make.

    My prediction: Below 200 and two mistakes (one mistake each) because I am always a pessimist.

    Her score will be somewhere between 203 ~ 218.

    In Men, this seems to be designed for Lysacek to win. It doesn't have the strong Japanese contenders who were the barriers for him the last a few years. Verner is definitely capable of beating Lysacek, but historically, he has never done it. So I will go with the most of the people here:

    1. Lysacek
    2. Verner
    3. Mroz

    I actually want her to save some energy for gpf and olympics.

    IIRC - Verner came in ahead of Evan at the 2007 Worlds as the one time he has. That said, I think Evan's time has come.

    other top ladies have to skate their *** off to score in that range.
    but for Yuna it's saving energy.. haha..



    and as for Sasha, you guys have to consider the fact that today's COP is not the same one from the Sasha days. e < frightening isn't it...

    Looking at recent pictures and videos of Yu-Na, I will say if that girl doesn't EAT something soon, she could get too sick to skate.

    I heard she doesn't eat more than 1,200 kcal a day during a season.
