    American nationals podium predictions

    Samantha Cesario
    Haley Dunne
    Joelle Forte
    Yasmin Siraj
    Kiri Baga
    Morgan Bell
    McKinzie Daniels
    Nina Jiang
    Sophia Adams
    Leah Keiser
    Angela Wang
    Caroline Zhang
    Alissa Czisny
    Rachael Flatt
    Christina Gao
    Vanessa Lam
    Mirai Nagasu
    Ashley Wagner
    Agnes Zawadzki


    Take your pick it looks like its going to be a good fight this year although in my opinion Alissa will win due to how together she she was at her two grand prix events and the final may have been a fluke although i always have hope that Christina will produce something amazing and get on the team for worlds but for her to get a descent shot after her grand prix performance she'd really need to win oh well . Anyway can't wait to hear your opinions WOOOOH!!! IM SO PUMPED FOR THIS SEASON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ahem excuse my blathering

    I don't see Gracie Gold. Is she going to be in junior nationals?

    I think its probably for the best she doesn't as so many skaters have burnt out (Caroline Zhang is a good example of a skater who learned bad technique because she was rushed to senior level) and she probably wants to test the waters at junior level first.

    Im hoping the World team is going to be Alissa & Mirai. I love both and am torn on who I want to win. So Im going to say:

    Mirai Nagasu
    Alissa Czisny
    Ashley Wagner(although Id love for Caroline Zhang to have an amazing comeback story)

    I think Flatt, Gao & Zawadski will be in the mix.

    I hpoe Joelle Forte has a great Nationals

    It's not this, it's more that she didn't make Nationals last year at the Junior level, so she stayed back

    If the information provided on another board is true and the USFSA did not release Keifer Hubbell to Canada to skate with Vanessa Crone, following nationals we can see a change in partners for either Charlotte Lichtman or Emily Samuelson (my prediction)...

    Didn't Emily already try out with Keiffer, and it didn't work? Charlotte could definitely use a new partner, since Copley hasn't grown.

    Well it will be interesting to see what happens. If Keiffer Hubbell was skating with Vanessa Crone at the DSC until December and then the USFSA nixed the release...if Hubbell and Lichtman do partner up - do they skate under S/Z in Canton or K/C at the DSC...I know I am jumping the gun...but I can't see any other reason why the USFSA would not release Mr. Hubbell...

    In whatever order.

    Among the men, I think most would agree that Jeremy is the favorite despite a non-stellar Grand Prix. Silver, bronze and pewter; it's hard to guess.

    You really went out on a limb with your third pick. Sorry, don't see it happening unless something amazing has happened in the last 2 months.

    I would love to see Nagasu, Wagner and Gao, but that's not a prediction. A prediction would be Nagasu, Czisny, and Wagner. I would be thrilled if Yasmin Siraj or another of the up-and-comers could pop up to the podium. I think Zhang is just staving off the inevitable, unfortunately.
