69.97 + 1.9 + 0.2 = 72.07 which is clearly in the 72-73 range. Nadia is correct.
Not sure what the "wonky flying camel spin" has to do with it, unless you feel she wasn't docked there. But then again, she doesn't always have a wonk flying camel spin.
A gold lock. Mmmh, I suppose the really boring result would be this: V/T, Chan, Kim, D/W and Team Canada. So basically this years World Champions. Did that happen before? I mean that all the World Champions from the season before won the Olympics? I hope it won't come this way because it would be boring like I said. I hope and pray that the Olympics at last will be different from this years worlds. I don't want any controversies, I want all to have a clean performance and deliver their best on that night. Just thinking of a mens event like 4CC or Worlds....ew. Please no.
Strangely I also think that Chan is probably the least likely lock, even though he rules the men after Vancouver. I think his star is slowly dimishing and you could see the first signs of it this season. His peak came to soon. (Or too late if you think Vancouver) I'm really curious how the Olympic pressure might get to him. The only reason why I think that V/T are a lock is because Sochi is in Russia. It just won't happen for S/S there. Basically because this is the only real chance of Russia for Gold in Figure Skating. So I think that V/T even have a mistake margin. And mistakes are something that S/S cannot have. It cannot be too obvious though, or there would be outrage. If it wouldn't be Russia S/S would have a chance. But even a Silver Medal would be great, considering they only have Olympic Bronze. They want the Gold, yeah, but I think Silver is something to be proud of too. I wish them a great program and the performance of a life time in Sochi. Yuna is just an amazing wonder to me. I think it is sooo awesome that she is on top without a high value coach. No - she is even coached by the team that coached her when she was small! Isn't that amazing? It is her talent and not the work of some wonder coach. As much as I love Mao - I don't really think it'll happen for her, but there is a slight chance. And I want a medal for Carolina to put the Olympic disasters behind her and end her career on a high note. But Yuna is the lock for me, too.
Someone has to win, I suppose. Chances are it will be V/T. Or it might be S/S if mistakes are made. Or the entire competition might be a train wreck.
In any event, ISU really needs to take a look at the quality of pairs programs we're seeing, and find some way to remedy this. CoP, as it stands, isn't getting the job done in pairs.
