    Only if Kaetlyn doesn't get spooked skating between Yuna and Mao...

    Gracie should be okay. She skated first at CoR (granted, in the SP) and won that portion of the competition.

    Gracie does well when she is behind the pack her ranking skate order is on her advantage, Top 5 is within reach
    cant say the same for Osmond's skating order, though she will still get a huge inflation even with Osmond's 2 falls in the LP

    I notice a trend Osmond skates well when she is Canada but bombs when she is out of her comfort home zone country ( e.g. 4CC's )
    Osmond should be a lock for 5th or bronze/silver medal .

    1 Yuna
    2 Carolina
    3 Osmond

    1 Yuna
    2 Carolina
    3 Mao

    1 Yuna
    2 Osmond
    3 Carolina

    this will be the podium selections

    Looking at the start order, I'm already feeling some absurd inflation going on in the last group. But hopefully the judges have realized that a fall automatically warrants a -3 GOE and a double-footed/UR'ed jump deserves negative points.

    Yuna , Carolina are safe for a podium finish
    also Osmond will get huge inflated scores, I think Osmond can get the silver medal if Kostner gets her FS meltdowns
    Kanako's FS will be dinged with major UR's, she wont stay 3rd in the FS

    She will have to suck it up and just do it. No one is going to just hand this thing to her. But I am feeling that she is up to the challenge.

    You worry too much, she has been solid all week. She may have issues but consistency is not one of them.

    Agree, disagree, agree.

    I'll eat my shoes if Yuna doesn't make the podium. Carolina is less certain, especially since she had some fumbles at Euros and in her SP, but she pulled herself up last year so who's to say she can't do it again?

    Osmond is just too far away, and with Asada, Suzuki, and Wagner nipping her heels. And she isn't known for skating clean in the FS, either--I think she's had one all season, and that wasn't even at Canadian Nationals.

    I hate to say it because she's a lovely skater, but I don't see a medal for Kanako this year. She has too many technical issues that could spring up in the FS, and as we've seen, the judges are (mostly) sticklers for accuracy and precision.

    Katelyn, here's a girl practicing at a mall rink..like she said she has nothing to lose. She came here hoping to finish in the top ten and look where she is at now. In her interview Katelyn said that she is going into the long program skating as if she is on the mall rink..no expectations...With regards to Katelyn bombing out, Gracie hasn't had a stellar season either...The problem with Gracie is that the American media has her pumped up so much, that she's the next best thing since sliced bread...It reminds me of the Gimmie Kimmie era. Now it is Here's Gracie. Gracie has been held up to to high of a standard, that she can't live up to...to much pressure..

    Suzuki isn't that much stable either, Ashley we'll see if she can deliver back a clean FS but we will have to wait and see
    but a clean Osmond will beat a clean Wagner, Osmond is the hometown girl, she will get huge pcs and inflated scores even with mistakes probably 120-130+ range
    so No, Osmond on the podium is not out of the question.

    Now let's be clear here, millie. I don't think anyone here has said anything to the tune of "Kaetlyn will bomb the FS and skid right out of the top ten." But I also don't see her holding onto fourth place with the three top ladies currently behind her and hungry to medal. And as for Gracie Gold, I agree that she's entered this competition with a ridiculous amount of pressure that she can barely handle. The USFSA needs to stop treating her like the poster girl for Olympic redemption, especially in her first senior season.

    Like it or not, though, this is how the game is played at the senior international level. If you can turn the pressure into a memorable performance, then you're good to go. If you're at serious risk of falling apart (as we've seen both Gracie and Kaetlyn do this season), then you'd better figure out what's going on and fix it before the federation asks you to hang up your skates.

    so No, Osmond on the podium is not out of the question.
    Osmond was sixth in PCS in the SP, and third in TES--keeping in mind that many of the other ladies made serious errors.
