    Lipnitskaia and Tuk are not age eligible for worlds. Lipnitskaia won junior world. Tuk sat out junior worlds this year to prepare and get an early start for next year.

    Japan, US and Italy(barely) earns 3 spots and Russia (barely) looses theirs. Georgia and China earn two spots. Sweden barely missing the target.
    Suzuki really deserves to shine though

    Men:
    G. Chan
    S. Takahashi
    B. Abbott/Kozuka/Hanyu/Fernandez/Brezina/Verner/Joubert...
    Not even going to bother. Too open
    Hoping that Takahashi wins though...

    G. V/M
    S. D/W
    B. P/B
    4. W/P
    5. Shibs
    6. B/S or I/L
    really similar to GPF

    Pairs:
    G. S/S
    S. V/T
    B. K/S
    4. P/T
    5. S/H
    6. D/R
    7. B/L
    8. D/C or M/B
    9. T/T
    10. B/H
    11. D/C or M/B

    Has anyone seen the medals and the small medals? I wonder if they are a motivator to make the podium (LOL). I have seen some rather ugh medals - like the standard ones from the trophy shop are nicer lol. I did like the potato chip ones from Oly 10 thought. I am most curious in dance who will win gold between D and W and V and M and can Patrick keep it together for world gold or will it be Daisuke or will we have a "darker horse" like Fernandez or Hanyu or Kozuka or perhaps Abbott. I still think the French men would be lucky to win bronze or silver but it could happen if people crash and burn. It will also be a battle royale for Pang and Tong against the Germans and V and T for world gold. Poor Kavaguti and Smirnov most likely will be left medaless.

    I think it'll be P/T left out in the cold. All the PCS won't help if they make their usual UR/pops/level errors. I wouldn't be surprised to see D/R or others beat them too.

    I don't think so, on the contrary; K/S will be battling with S/H ( seems they are the new favorite chinese pair ) for a podium
    It will be P/T that will be left in the cold, sadly their time has passed, old, UR Issues and with many mistakes I can see them dropping out of top 5 surpassed by B/L and D/R

    Too hard to predict except Chan and D/W for gold.
    But it would be wonderful to see Alissa, Akiko and Jeremy finally earn world medals. I think and hope that Mao and Carolina will be 1. 2. or 2 .1.

    Davis and white will not win their FD just hasn`t progressed or evolved since Skate america they have less risky elements than V&M in their FD, all Virtue and moir have to do is get their levels in both programs and they win the judging panel strongly favors them this year.

    okay, either DW or VM for gold then. Still more predictable than the ladies.

    Kostner has the edge for sure although Mao might surprise.

    why would kostner have the edge? the only edge kostner has is that she always can rely on the judges to boost her, where Mao on the other hand has to rely on her own ability like she always has... (if it's about throwing some easy tripples Mao could easily do it and win worlds but instead Mao takes the risk by doing a technically difficult program)
    I soooo dearly hope that Mao graps the title and thereby peaks at worlds, it would really be a huge step backwards for the sport if kostner with her easy tripples and her PCS got to win it... and god [bless] me I soo adore Mao Asada's programs it's simply soo magical and she truly is a beautiful skater...
