    that's my choice as well. I'm not that sure about Artur's 2nd place though...he might not medal this year.

    <Pairs>

    What I hope for:

    1 Yuko/Sasha
    2 Aolina/Robin
    3 Tatiana/Maxim

    My predictions:

    1 Aolina SAVCHENKO/Robin SZOLKOWY
    2 Tatiana VOLOSOZHAR/Maxim TRANKOV
    3 Yuko KAVAGUTI/Sasha SMIRNOV

    My guess is if Aolina & Robin can skate almost clean, judges will give them the Gold once again, in thanking to their unique styles, superior skating skills and contribution to the pair descipline all these years. Come 2012-13 season, my bet is judges will start holding up Tatiana & Maxim no matter what, and the Russian pair remains simply 'unbeatable' at every single competition till Sochi.

    As I wote in another thread, Yuko & Sasha are my sentimental favorite for the Gold.
    When Russia seemingly had no other top pair teams after Totmianina/ Marinin, and desperately needed spots at Worlds and Vancouver, it was Yuko & Sasha who did everything for the federation. All the efforts, hard works and sacrifices they made should deserve at least, one World title. And this year's might be their best and last chance for the title.
    I really really wish they will skate 'lights out' and get the Gold with two clean skates. Fingers crossed!

    I hope K/S get the GOLD as well. They are my favorite Russian pair in the last 10 years.

    Just reposting from my post in the "the Edge" board

    Ladies:
    G. Kostner
    S. Suzuki
    B. Asada
    4. Wagner or Czisny
    5. Leonova
    6. Wagner or Czisny
    7. Gedvanishvili
    8. Murakami
    9. Korebeynikova
    10. Zhang
    11. Helgesson
    12. Marchei
    13. Glebova
    14. Lacoste
    15. Kwak
    16. Silete
    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...

    Dance:
    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

    next time can we just have one predictions thread?

    I read the opinion of all of you with fascination. And I thought as follows.

    【WOMEN】
    1 Carolina Costner
    2 Mao Asada
    almost the third place
    Akiko Suzuki, Alena Leonova, Ashley Wagner

    【MEN】
    1 Patrick Chan
    2 Daisuke Takahashi
    almost the third place
    Takahiko Kozuka, Javier Fernandez, Artur Gashinski, Jeremy Abbott, Michal Brezina, Yuzuru Hanyu

    About women, I think that Carolina's techniques and confidence are the most stable than other women's, in this season.
    And I feel that Mao hasn't conviction about techniques of her own yet.
    If they feel uneasiness during competition even for an instant, it influences performance. Of course it is not problem only for women.

    The first place and the second place of men will be either of Chan or Takahashi. I think it's approximately stable, if without big trouble.
    Then, who comes in the third place?
    I can't help paying attention to Yuzuru Hanyu. I referred to words of his own, and many Japanese news and newspapers.
    After Japan National, he improved quality of skating to make up for stamina lack and improved choreography between elements to get a better evaluations in PCS. He is stronger than many other skaters mentally, and he has highest success rate of quad of Japanese now, and is by no means inferior to Takahasi and Kozuka in TES.

    However of course it goes without saying that all skaters continue making an effort.
    I want all of them to do their best. So if miracle happens, I want to watch performances without miss and fall of all skaters.

    <Ice Dance>

    What I hope for:

    1 Meryl/Charlie
    2 Nathalie/Fabian
    3 Kaitlyn/Andrei

    My predictions:

    1 Tessa VIRTUE/Scott MOIR
    2 Meryl DAVIS/Charlie WHITE
    3 Nathalie PECHALAT/Fabian BOURZAT

    If, I hope not, but if Nathalie & Fabian are forced to withdraw, I think the bronze will go to one of Russian teams, whichever the cleaner team.
    My bet is, judges do not like the podium sweep by the North Americans two years in a row, and especially at the Worlds in Europe, they simply are not going to allow it.

    Sorry they just don`t think like that weaver and poje have beaten the russian teams at the last two or three competitions and bobrova and soloviev twice at home, I like I&K i think they can become great but their programs are not that great i want them to beat the shibs though.
