Now that Yuna has performed her free skate (link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ye0u0lM9IP4), it's clear Worlds 2013 will be about Kim vs. Asada, with Wagner a strong podium contender (though Suzuki could knock her off).
As for Sochi, it's too far out to say. I personally would wait until Worlds to declare anything, but with the Russian wonderbabies underwhelming recently, it might be another Kim vs. Asada battle all over again.
What do people think regarding Leonova's chances? I know she had a terrible GP season, but the young girls have failed to deliver what a lot of people thought they were going to, and I think she might still be Russian #1 in 2014.
Lol at some technical frailties for Mao. She has no triple lutz or barely a flip she urs almost every jump sometimes but jumps are irrelevant with her pcs. she definitely no longer has triple axel ability and barely most jumps that are triples. She is atrocious but the whole idea of the thread is possible with triples really being irrelevant.

For example, I didn't really expect Yuna to score 200+ points but she did!!! (congrats for her )
I would much consider the battle for the gold medal : Kim Vs Osmond
Osmond could have be the «it» factor this year if she could have competed at NHK Trophy 2012 and she could have easily beat Mao Asada at the Grand Prix Final.
Look at those score at Skate Canada Challenge (5-9 december) that Kaetlyn Osmond earn:
Kaetlyn is definately able to win Sochi, she is very consistent and artistry
Kaetlyn is NEVER going to receive those PCS scores (at least this season) among Kim, Mao, and Ashley...!!
Even Browning is a huge Osmond fan and feels it was obvious she was not wanted at the final. She really might have won, or pushed Akiko off the podium. Will someone please post ashley's injury? How bad is it?
I notice that Mao Asada and Kim Yu-Na in their first year Senior have also received high mark in PCS scores in 2007. Why not Kaetlyn, she is truly talented like Yu-Na and Mao in my opinion. She could definately be on the podium at world this year. Watch out!
