European ladies have no chance this time. It's not Torino, or Sweden, you know? Ice may be slippery, but the Europeans are the first to slip. As same as four years ago, Ando and Asada will finish 1-2. Ando can retire with honor. The bronze goes to one of Flatt, Kim, Murakami. I hope the US ladies get back three spots. It ALL depends on Czisny.
I would like to see another Asian Domination at world.

One never really knows. Who thought Nagasu would have a meltdown in the FS after doing so well at Nats, Olys?
Then Czisny, with a history of peaking early and doing badly at worlds...history would indicate that she'd skate at best how she did at 4CCs, likely worse. This is one case where I hope history makes the wrong prediction.
mot's post pretty much speaks my mind, but I would like to add that :
I'd LOVE to see Miki win this!! and yet at the same time see some portion of GS/FSU posters keep complaining about it. In other words I, as a big Miki fan, don't want her to bring the utmost "skate of her life" in this game. That's for some other time to come true. My joy is Miki improving each year, and hopefully it will be so till Sochi.

Kiira Korpi has been the top Finn in three Europeans, but she has never been the top Finn in Worlds. I wonder if Laura has it in her to beat Kiira.
I want Miki to win!
She is a powerful, solid, on-fire performer with big jump and she continue to improve.
I also has a soft spot for her as there are so many Miki hater.
It would also be great if Alisa can get medal.

could Kostner win a medal in 2008 if it was not in Europe?
could Rochette win a medal in 2009 if it was not in North America?
could Lepisto win a medal in 2010 if it was not in Europe?
This year, it's going to be fairest event (I hope).
I guess by your logic Asia is the only region of the world that is free of bias.
