    Short Dance
    Men Short
    Ladies Short

    - Fri Apr 20:
    Pairs Short
    Free Dance
    Men Free

    Looks like the pressure on Gracie's shoulder just went up a few notches.

    the easiest country to win is Japan--strong in 3/4 disciplines-balanced overall-most like to medal in ladies-men, pairs, dance is weak spot
    russia
    next with decent ladies, pairs, dance -most likely to win pairs, and medal in dance and probably medal in ladies

    U.s. can win but weak spot is men -jeremy has to finish and/or medal and or both men has to finish as high as possible -hard to do with patrick, france, japan men, with a strong showing from russian men -might be hard.
    ladies-ashley i can see a top 4 finish, gracies a top 8- top 4-(caroline, ashley, akiko, alena- next group- kanako, gracie, adelina, valentina, (last 4 would be mae-bernice, yretha, amelie, cynthia.
    pairs can finish with a medal and or 4th


    ladies can medal might go not weak but not strong.

    canada can win-but needs help from ladies to win-one/both has to finish in top 6 jwith ashley, alena, akiko, kanako, carolina, adelina, gracie fighting to keep them down.

    italy and france rounds out for me

    the teams are more balanced this year -no runaway unless major mess up.

    i see a team winning it with 50-52 possible a 54

    Having no real entry in Mens means Russia might be last. you can't just have three disciplines and not even go for all 4- especially in the singles! You need two singles skaters.

    1-Japan
    2-United States
    3-Canada
    4-France
    5-Italy
    6-Russia

    Semantic question:
    Will 2012 WTT event have medals for top finishers in each of the four disciplines? The only "awards on ice" will be for the top teams in the final overall standings.
    But will there be separate "small medal" ceremonies for the four disciplines?

    2012 official language is the same as for 2009:
    "11. AWARDS ON ICE
    The winning team will be awarded with the ISU World Team Trophy. All participating Skaters/Couples will receive a medal.
    The national anthem of the country of the winning team will be played and the flags of the countries of the three best teams will be hoisted.
    For the Skaters/Couples having obtained the best individual scores, gifts may be remitted. However, no podium shall be used, no national anthems can be played and no flags can be hoisted."

    The individual medalist will get medals and a gift, last time it was during the banquet.

    japan if skates well and finishes high can runaway with the event. they can place high in points. if all skate well.

    as far as alissa-i heard they promised her a spot regardless of where she finished at worlds, so asking her isn't out of the question-since she made sure regarding 4cc. but gracie

    I have no prediction for this event.
    But, I wish that Cynthia Phaneuf skate to her potential and I hope that Brian Orser give her the confidence that she needs to perform well.
