I think she's better than Flatt, Leonova, Gedevanishvilli, Korpi, Meier, and Kostner and Lepisto if they pull their usuals, but idk if the judges will agree.
    ITA with you (as I actually do many times).

    Top 5 may be possible if she does very well with no downgrade (after the four of Yuna, Miki, Mao, and Rochette (note: no particular order)) and Top 8 seems more realistic.

    Ooops. Got the LP and SP messed up. Somehow I always thought the blue dress was for her Bond routine.

    But don't forget Kristi, Peggy, Dorothy, ~~

    I would like someone be bold enough to wear gold.

    though unfortunately 4A seems impossible even for her.

    Loved Peggy's green dress. Blue is so overrated as the luck color. I mean several winners in the past also wore red.

    and even with her full name - AlexAndrA PAuline SAshA Cohen - with six A's only Silver for Sasha.

    But MAriA ButyrskAyA did become the oldest Ladies WC in history.

    I was thinking more in the line of first names ending with the sound of a , but mixed up Shizuka Arakawa's

    wow, that seriously scares me! Carolina does wear blue dress for her LP and she does have the potential to win if she skates super clean. And she follows the trend 100% :(

    But on the other hand if she does there is nothing I can compliain. She can be great and if Yuna fails to deliver it's everybody else chance.
