Shocker of the Season
This season has so many unexpected things that has happened, so I think this should deserve its own thread
here is my lists so far:
1 Weaver/Poje not making The Grand Prix Final and beaten by Bobrova/Soloviev Twice
2 Machida winning over Daisuke
3 Osmond winning Skate Canada, amid being super inflated scores
4 Voronov medaling at CoC, he medalled before in a GP ? a weak field but still if you are an anonymous or has no records even as a junior winning an event you can still medal as a senior, lol
5 Leonova bombing and No Grand Prix Final
6 Collision with Song and Rippon, and Nan getting hospitalized
7 Joubert pulling out of FS in Cup of China and getting sick
1 Han Yan not qualifying to the JGP Final

In the JGP:
Han Yan (reigning worl champion) not making the final
Ju/Jin being 2 and 4 in their events
And, in The senior GP:
Leonova being just 7 at SA
Zhang in the "Flatt-situation" (good programs but low scores because of PCS and GOE)
SkateFiguring took the violet pill
My theory is top skaters are battling each other for the underdog status into the Olympics.
LOL- don't want to go in with too much expectation!

It was mentioned but this is Voronov's second Cup of China bronze.
Then you have the pairs with V/T and S/S and P/T all winning so no upsets!
Dance has been the same for three years now. DW and VM 1 and 2 in whatever order and P/B third and P/B only threatened if they dont do an element. 4th keeps changing.
yeah Voronov did medal before at CoC as you mentioned but still unexpected for someone who never excelled even before even as junior, Voronov is classified as an anonymous or obscure skater
