    Who do you think will skip Worlds after the Olympics?

    Just curious... I'm sure it would depend in many cases on how things go at the Olympics for certain skaters. I just know that every Olympic year there are usually many that don't continue on to Worlds after "living the Olympic dream"...

    Yes, and Evan if he pulls off gold. Mao also if she wins gold. If she doesn't it'll be interesting to see what she decides. Mirai and Rachael will go no matter what happens, and I'm so excited for them. If I were Jeremy Abbott I would go to worlds too even if he wins gold at the Olympics. But he probably won't. It'll be interesting to see what Johnny does.

    I don't see Plushenko going to worlds even if he doesn't win gold.

    Call it a hunch - but I have a feeling Cathy and Chris Reed may not go to Worlds... her back has been badly injured since NHK and they are skipping
    4CCs to rest for the Olympics. I guess it would depend if she has recovered or not.

    I just read his interview, he said he will decide after Olympic, if everything will be ok with his health.

    Plunshenko, Lysacek, Kim, Ando, Shen/Zhao, Pang/Tong, Virtue/Moir. I think Plushenko, Kim, Shen/Zhao and Virtue/Moir will be the Olympic gold medals. Plushenko and Shen/Zhao have already won Worlds and won't care about going to Korea. I see Kim definitely appearing at World's but probably not competing. Virtue/Moir and Kim will both be really busy with appearances if they do win Gold, so I don't think they'll be prepared training wise for Worlds. I think Ando, Lysacek and Pang/Tong will win Olympic medals and have all won Worlds already so won't go to Korea. I could see Lambiel and Delobel/Schoenfelder skipping too, although I think Delobel/Schoenfelder will probably compete next season, so that they have a proper send-off.

    I think Kim and Ando will be there unless one of them wins gold in Vancouver. Mao will be there whatever happens in Vancouver. I also think that Virtue and Moir will go to Torino no matter what happens at the Olympics. They have never placed above third there so they cannot say they have accomplished everything.

    I agree that Lambiel and Delobel/Schoenfelder won't show up...thier returns have been Olympic only. Same for Plushenko.

    I dunno, if Evan wins the OGM I think he just might ride teh high straight into worlds... he's one of those big time competitors, not all that interested in just taking the prize and running.

    I think Johnny, no matter what the placement, will bow out of Worlds... Jeremy might run with the gold and not show at worlds, but then I don't know...

    Shen and Zhao, I think, will skip worlds.

    I don't think anyone, not the skaters, not the coaches, not even their mothers and fathers, know who will go to the Worlds, after the Olympics. Even if some of them have said, they would. Some skaters who have won OGM have gone to the Worlds in the past. Some may be pressured to go even if they are not up to it, mentally or physically, in order to secure future placings for their countries. I think all of the Olympic participants would make that decision, final decision, when the Olympics is over, and many of them will change their mind from their past pronouncements.

    My bet is, as it is usually the case, a whole slew of them, whether they medal or not, will retire after the Olympics, especially those who have retired before (Shen/Zhen and Plush for example). Which is a reason, I have, completely irrational I know, why I don't want some of the top contenders (won't name them) to win the gold because I want them to stay in the game longer so we can enjoy them.
