I'm not convinced Hanyu will medal. He's incredibly talented and I love his skating, but he's not always so consistent, and has stamina issues sometimes. If he skates like he did at CoC, he will probably be in the lower end of the top 10, nowhere near the podium. And if Kozuka delivers, I tend to think he will be placed ahead. Javi was looking like a good bet but then Euros happened. For this reason I think someone unexpected might sneak onto the podium, most likely Joubert for reasons I discussed earlier, but maybe even someone like Amodio, Verner, Abbott etc. Brezina could jump his way to the podium too, but he seems to have plateaued a bit this season and he always seems to make silly mistakes at the end of his long programs. I could actually see Verner beating Brezina here honestly, because his FS at Euros was bad and he still managed 144, meaning if he's clean he could get like 160, and then if he does 4-3 in SP, he could get on the podium. Of course the stars would have to all allign and it's Verner so I doubt he goes clean, but you never know. Jeremy again like Tomas doubt he skates clean but if he does, should be enough for bronze unless someone like Javi or Hanyu skates clean too with all those quads. Idk. My money is on Joubert.
