    Articles on 2011 Worlds

    Will Worlds of pressure be too much for Takahashi?

    http://www.universalsports.com/news-...id=530723.html

    Plushenko, Volchkova speak on 2011 Worlds: (Interesting take. No Chan mentioned)

    ISU site preview on 2011 Worlds:

    http://www5.isu.org/vsite/vcontent/c...s-item,00.html

    Will Russian skaters succeed at home? (I'm wondering why the article acknowledged the experienced Japanese, French, and US men, but no mention of Canadians? Have they put Canadians in the category of US?)

    No, because Canadian men are not experienced like the Americans. Or, it seems, Canadian men don't exist as far as Russians are concerned.

    Yeah, US skaters are so experienced with Bradley, Dornbush, and Miner attending Worlds this time! Looks like the views are certainly different from the other side of the globe.

    It's not the view from the other side of globe, it's just the view of certain incompetent journalist.

    Well, I certainly wish they all forget about Chan. The reigning World champion Takahashi, the newly crowned European champion Amodio, the most technically packed Bradley, the most experienced Oda and Joubert, and Kozuka, and Verner, and Gachinsky, and Dornbush, and Miner, and ... Isn't that great for the dark-horse Chan?

    Heh. Awesome. I think he'd accept switching one of his silvers for gold, the other for bronze!

    Or he could keep one silver, switch the other, and have the full set.

    Bronze for Plushy? No way!

    Platinum!

    Only Gold and Platinum are acceptable.

    of course no way, he hasnt seen that color since Gpf 1998, and he is so old now, he doesnt remember it.

    But I like Mathmans version, the whole set would be cool

    He'll have time to get the whole set. I'm not kidding. I think it's possible in Sochi as long as his knees could hold.

    No worry there. They invented a new ice for his knees.

    Like the speedos in swimming, the new technology will creat the new records in figure skating?

    Do we have post Olympic drought? I don't feel it. It's so exciting! More exciting than in 2010 Olympic year.

    evil russians will make a trabolino ice by Sochi, he would jump on one side of the rink and land on the other
    You seem to share the same worries as Chan about Plushy knees. Cute
