Predictions for 2011 Worlds
Let's go nuts. Predict the medalists for next year's worlds.
I don't think Plushenko will make it without an injury until Worlds and I think Weir and Joubert will retire. My opinion.
Kim retires, along with Rochette, Kostner and Ando.
Pang/Tong retire, Savchenko/Szolkowy retire, Volosozhar/Trankov become a pair.
Virtue/Moir, Faiella/Scali, Domina/Shabalin, and Kerr/Kerr retire.
Nagasu will never beat Asada. Asada said she'dl work on her 3-3, work on her 3A more, work on a quad to beat Kim's score. Her PCS will go up even higher because by the next season she will be the only top skater left. Let's worry about Nagasu getting a medal first before crowning her the world champion.
"Hold an edge and look sexy!"
Yep, the off-season has officially begun.
My predictions for top 5 in each discipline in no particular order.
I love Murakami but I think she might get robbed in PCS. She is still just a very little girl. Also, Ando said she isn't retiring and we still don't know about Yuna and Joannie. I guess none of the baby Russian girls will be eligible for the nest worlds, but maybe Ksenia could get on the podium?
Ladies event just finished 2 days ago. At this point non of the peoples are confirmed yet. Plushy is out due to injury, Lysacek is in hollywood and doubt he will be back. Kim, rochett still a question.
Top 5 in random order:
Ladies - Asada, Ando, Lepisto, Nagasu, Kim
Men - Taka, Chan, Joubert, Kozuko, Abott
What makes you so sure?
