    Predictions for 2011 Worlds

    Let's go nuts. Predict the medalists for next year's worlds.

    MEN:
    I don't think Plushenko will make it without an injury until Worlds and I think Weir and Joubert will retire. My opinion.

    1. Takahashi
    2. Kozuka
    3. Rippon

    WOMEN:
    Kim retires, along with Rochette, Kostner and Ando.

    1. Nagasu
    2. Asada
    3. Murakami

    PAIRS:
    Pang/Tong retire, Savchenko/Szolkowy retire, Volosozhar/Trankov become a pair.

    1. Kavaguti/Smirnov
    2. Zhang/Zhang
    3. Volosozhar/Trankov

    ICE DANCE:
    Virtue/Moir, Faiella/Scali, Domina/Shabalin, and Kerr/Kerr retire.

    1. Davis/White
    2. Pechalat/Bourzat
    3. Bobrova/Sloviev

    1. Nagasu
    2. Asada
    3. Murakami

    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.

    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?

    Already!!! lol
    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

    Joubert, Ando, Savchenko/Szolkowy, Faiella/Scali have all announced that they will stay next season. And maybe Weir or Kerrs or Pang/Tong too.
