    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?

    well both are mostly done with growth spurt, mostly just filling out
    Tukt basically is just petite from genetics and did not grew at all

    I guess that, due to puberty problems and a back injury, Tuk may not even be going.

    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.

    1 Gracie - probably will score by a huge margin, maybe 190+ ?
    2 Liza
    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.

    sky_fly, you need to check your facts.
    FALSE: "Gracie has never lost a competition this season other than a fluke win from Agnes."

    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.
