    2. Oda
    3. Song

    Ladies
    1. Tuktamisheva
    2. Kostner
    3. Czisny

    Does anyone know how it works if a skater competes in more than 2 GP events? I remember when Weir competed in 3 in 2005 the ones that were going to be counted toward his GPF points were already predetermined. Is it still the same or am I remembering completely wrong. I'm just curious b/c Brezina is skating in CoR too.

    It's a very tough dance field. Of course, V&M will run away with the gold, and at home, I think it is a given that P&B will take the silver. However, the bronze will be difficult. I like C/L's programs better, particularly their FD, than I&K's.

    Pechalat/Bourzat, from Skate America where Fabian had bronchitis
    SD 60.07, but with a -1 deduction for the fall, and bronchitis
    FD 96.22 with the bronchitis

    Capellini/ Lanotte from Skate Canada
    SD 61.92 (and a nice one it is)
    FD 92.95

    Ilinykh/Katsalapov from NHK, where Elena bruised her knee badly prior to the FD
    SD 61.83
    FD 87.65

    I'm hoping for C/L to medal here..I ,too, prefer their programs to I/K and it was so good to see them skating so well at SC , and really on the comeback trail.

    Joubert has withdrawn---his back hasn't healed enough for him to chance competition.

    I believe the best 2 of 3 results may be applied towards GPF qualification, considered an unfair advantage by many. However, there is financial penalty against the the earnings from 2 participated events if the skater/team withdraws from an event for whatever reason, even medical. The French Dance team of P/B has already suffered the consequences when they withdrew from SC after he skated in SA while sick with bronchitis. Ironically, they entered 3 events for financial reasons.

    Even if she does it's not 100% because she's tied with Sotnikova and Leonova right now!

    I will cheer for Viktoria too as I enjoyed seeing her relate with her sister and her mom at SkateAmerica.

    I would love to see Viktoria do well here too, her programs are lovely this year, she just needs to nail those jumps

    Very tough for her though, Alissa and Carolina should be top 2
