    My dream podium, that means I can be as much subjective as I want and it has nothing to do with a real prediction

    Men: I definetly want Daisuke to win but I would also like Hanyu. I love Fernandez programs and it will also be nice to see a european on podium. I also like Kozuka and very much Machida (Lambiel is a genius). I already said it, this I also like a little bit of Chan. So it's hard with only 3 places. But: 1. Daisuke, 2. Hanyu, 3. Fernandez

    Ladies: When I first saw Akiko's LP on youtube, before she presented it at JO I said :"I want her to be world champion this year!". I don't like her SP and until now it wasn'tvery well received by the judges. But she is a late bloomer, so I think at world she will look much better and consistent than now. I don't know about Yuna and Carolina, if they are coming or not. I like both of them but this year I want some new faces on the podium. I think I would like 1. Akiko 2. Ashley and 3. Kiira and Mao and Gracie around the podium.

    Pairs: I don't know yet, Tatiana and Maxim were my fav but I didn't like the way they won at CoR. If they win worlds then they should skate clean just because they can and have far more better programs than the germans (and costumes!!!). Than I really don't know, have no favourites.

    Ice dance: exactly the opposite, I have too may favourites: Tessa&Scott, Kaetlyn&Andrew, Nathalie&Fabian, Anna&Luca, Madison&Evan and I also like Meryl&Charlie's SP but they were never my fav. This is hard: 1. Tessa&Scott 2. Nathalie&Fabian 3. Kaetlyn&Andrew and the rest around the podium.

    Men:

    1.) Daisuke Takahashi - even though I don't love his programms this year, I really want him to become WC for a second time.
    2.) Yuzuru Hanyu - we can't have our little wonder baby do worse than last year
    3.) Javier Fernandez - nice programms, and it would be so great for spain!

    Ladies:

    1.) Mao Asada - I could never go for anything else.
    2.) Akiko Suzuki - lovely FS, and she'd deserve it.
    3.) Adelina Sotnikova - partly to proof those wrong who wrote her off already. Plus, I want a newcomer on the podium, but Elizaveta Tuktamysheva or Gracie Gold would be great too.

    For Pairs, I just want S/S to win. And P/T to do nice enogh so they can be proud of themselves. In Dance, I'd like to have the Shibos and P/B in the podium, I like those way better than V/M or D/W.

    My dream podium for Men 2013 Worlds would be

    1. Chan
    2. Abbott
    3. Oda

    I have other favorites but would dearly wish for Abbott and Oda to each win an over due Worlds medal. The others will have their chances, especially in the Olympics, but really, I would like to get this "injustice" over with and move on.

    Now that's entertainment. Can we bring in DomShabs for a special guest appearance with their aboriginal dance?

    I'm doing to do dream top 6

    Ladies
    1.) Akiko Suzuki (love her FS this year; I think the SP is a work in progress, but could be great by worlds)
    2.) Yuna Kim (I'd be OK with her winning, but she's a big question mark at this point)
    3.) Ashley Wagner (She looks REALLY great so far this season
    4.) Mao Asada (Beautiful as always, but I feel like she needs more tech content to be a contender)
    5.) Gracie Gold (Great tech, but PCS components (save transitions and skating skills) need work)
    6.) Adelina Sotnikova (Would also be okay with her being way higher. She has great ice coverage, speed and presence but her jumps have been failing her this year. If that changes, I'd put her higher).

    Men
    1.) Yuzuru Hanyu (Such strong programs this year; he just needs to skate them)
    2.) Javier Fernandez (The guy has 3 quads planned in his FS; craziness!)
    3.) Takahiko Kozuka (Love both his programs this year; so lucky I got to see them live!)
    4.)Patrick Chan (I actually like his programs this year and he is showing improvement in his expression. I don't feel right putting him much lower)
    5.) Nobunari Oda (I really like both his programs this season, in particular his SP.)
    6.) Ross Miner (What can I say, I love this guy. He is the most underrated guy in U.S. Men's figure skating)

    Pairs
    1.) S/S (The class of the field
    2.) MT-M (I really like their programs this season.)
    3.) V/T (Their programs are ridiculous this season, namely the SP. But can't deny their basics are high class)
    4.) D/R (I am eh on their programs, but admire their strong tech)
    5.) P/T (Could easily have them higher...)
    6.) D/C (Just for improvement's sake; hoping they can work on their PCS components in the next few months!)

    Dance
    1.) D/W (great SD; think the FD needs work but could be quite enchanting!)
    2.) V/M (great FD, but the SD doesn't quite do it for me)
    3.) B/S (I really like both of their programs this year. Even the dark Faust/death FD works somehow)
    4.) P/B (I like their ambition this year. That said, I'm not sure if they have the programs to back it up.) Actually I like C/L's programs better, so I'd put them here as well
    5.) C/L or P/B
    6.) S/S (I want them to show redemption....and prove the naysayers wrong. I think their FD could be amazing with a few more outings. Obviously far from where they were in 2011, but I think if they beat a few teams, it would be good.
