I can't believe the event starts next week!

Kiri Baga is withdrawn, Zijun Li has taken her place.

Men

1 Andrei ROGOZINE CAN
2 Keegan MESSING USA
3 Joshua FARRIS USA
4 Han YAN CHN
5 Max AARON USA
6 Zhan BUSH RUS
7 Gordei GORSHKOV RUS
8 Richard DORNBUSH USA

I bet we'll see 2 US men on the podium, and Keegan was impressive in Romania so I think he might be the US number 1. I'm not a huge fan of Yan and that's why I have him OTP, I think his programs are a bit bland.

Ladies

1 Adelina SOTNIKOVA RUS
2 Christina GAO USA
3 Risa SHOJI JPN
4 Polina SHELEPEN USA
5 Zijun LI CHN
6 Yasmin SIRAJ USA
7 Liza TUKTAMYSHEVA RUS
8 Kristiene GONG USA

I think the nerves will get to Liza and she bombs and the lutz gives Yasmin trouble and keeps her down that far. Adelina, Christina, Risa, Polina, and Zijun I think will all skate well and at their best I think they would rank in that order. Poor Kristiene is just up against such a deep field.
