Unless we have a repeat of 2008 and the podium is a complete surprised and comprised entirely up and comers, something like Gao, Zawadzki, Siraj, and Lam.There is no clear favorite in Ladies.
I'm just going to go based on recent history and that's to say the following:
- Rachel Flatt will NOT win the event.
- Czisny will do well for herself, get on the podium somewhere.
- There will be a surprise entrant among the top 6.
Note that this is based ONLY on recent history/trends and does NOT reflect my hopes for what will happen in Greensboro.
