Most of the consistent skaters have pulled out of the competition, leaving only Chan and Oda as the remaining two non-headcases. I have no idea if all these withdrawals will alleviate the pressure on the now top contenders or cause them to want it too much or think they already have it in the bag.
We don't know which Joubert will show up.
We don't know which Abbott will show up.
We don't know which Takahashi will show up.
We don't know which Bradley will show up.
We don't know which Contesti will show up.
If the evin twin version of all those men show up at worlds, the podium will consist of: Chan, Oda, and Berzina/Kozuka. If the good version of those skaters show up, it's anyones game.
I agree but Chan hasn't been THAT consistent this year.
