Elizaveta Tuktamisheva and Gracie Gold
Am I the only one who's extremely excited to see these two in competition? They're bringing some of the best of their countries along, and it'll be interesting to see how it all plays out.
What do you guys think? Predictions on who'll make the podium?
Welcome to the boards, ForeverFish! Post ofteh, post long!
I begin to like Gracie more and more. There is something about her that makes you watch her, like her..I saw the new programs and I gotta say that Liza has changed so much! I'm excited about new season)
Does anyone know when single event tickets go on sale?
not really saw elizaveta last year, impressed me. waiting for puberty spurt.
gracie impress me at junior gp event last year, unimpressed me at nationals and wtt competition.
hype up early
well both are mostly done with growth spurt, mostly just filling out

Also, does anyone know how caroline zhang has been doing post Nebelhorn?
I don't think Lisa will win here, she is not at her peak as she came back from a leg injury, I think its Gracie's to lose, Gracie has never lost a competition this season other than a fluke win from Agnes.

3 Akiko or Kanako
I definately thing that Kaetlyn Osmond can surprise us like Christina Gao did at Skate America. I would not be surprised if Kaetlyn get a medal. I have faith in her.
How many competitions has Gold skated this season

Gold's season prior to Salt Lake, AFAIK:
- At Skate Milwaukee, she performed only her SP. http://web.icenetwork.com/news/artic...&vkey=ice_news
- Then she placed second (behind Hannah Miller) in the Ladies Final Round at Skate Detroit. http://www.goldenskate.com/2012/07/2...or-highlights/
Am I missing anything? What has Gold already won this season?
If she wins one or both of her upcoming GP events, good for her.
Regardless, "fluke" is a terribly unfair and disrespectful description of Zawadzki's win at Salt Lake.

1 Amelie LACOSTE CAN not very good results last years
2 Kaetlyn OSMOND CAN good progress last time, high but not extremely high level at Nebelhorn Trophy
3 Elene GEDEVANISHVILI GEO Good, but not the best world level skater
4 Kanako MURAKAMI JPN At Chubu Regionals SP - 3T<+3T< и 3F<
5 Akiko SUZUKI JPN 3rd place at Worlds. But with URs and 1Lz. Not good skating (2 falls, TES 50.29) at Japan Open 06 oct 2012.
6 Ksenia MAKAROVA RUS Past season all her FS were bad, at test skating - not very good level.
7 Polina SHELEPEN RUS Horribly low results of this season.
8 Elizaveta TUKTAMYSHEVA RUS After injury, puberty issues, her skating at 2nd Event of Cup of StPetersburg was technically lower than at previous seasons (only 3T+3T at SP, no 3+3 at FS).
9 Gracie GOLD USA Her results after WJC-2012 were not stable.
10 Caroline ZHANG USA Total score 124.13 of Nebelhorn Trophy, 46 points less than Osmond.
So we don't see any really high level skater at predictably good state.
No predictions may be done.
Results of Skate Canada must be very interesting and important to estimate real level and state of skaters.
