I've heard similar things said about other skaters and they ended up falling from grace.
Everyone knows that it's figure skating and that anything can happen. It goes without saying that the favorite might lose. As for Ashley, she's the clearest favorite in years. Even if she wasn't the defending champion she'd probably be the favorite because of the way she has been skating this season compared to the other ladies. Does that mean the others don't stand a chance for gold? Course not.
