Medal Winners Open
Sarah Hughes, Shizuka Arakawa, Irina Slutskaya, Laura Lepisto,
Joannie Rochette, Kurt Browning, Ilia Kulik, Alexei Yagudin,
Philippe Candeloro, Takeshi Honda, Jeffrey Buttle
So, one ladies' spot for MWO is still undecided. I guess it goes to Asada. Her presence should have a significant impact on the TV rating. Besides that there are not many realistic candidates left.
Kim is shut out from any IMG events. Kwan is too expensive and not so popular in Japan. Cohen ... could be an option. But the organizer has spent too much money already and I don't think they need another expensive skater to sell tickets.

Both rosters look wonderful! The medal winners open, with Shizuka, Kurt, Ilia, and Alexei, is simply mouthwatering--better than chocolate! I hope that if it's available to see on video on YouTube or on any site, we'll be told here on GS.
There are a bunch of ladies from Georgia who work in my office building. I'll have to tell them that Gedevanishvili is featured. I hope her streak of excellence continues and improves this year. Wouldn't it be great if she got a world medal?
waaah soo thrilled to see Mao participate in JO
