    -My wish for Sochi olympics

    Plushy medals at Sochi against all odds(injury, tough competition)
    Yuna skates two clean programs so that she can have her happy farewell to the (competitive) sport.
    Mao skates two clean programs so that she can have no regrets in her skating life. She deserves that, really.
    Ashley and Gracie skates lights out and finish around top 5-ish.
    Ricky Dornbush makes it to Olympic team, and secures himself as a real contender.
    V/M win another OGM.
    Carolina wins an oly medal.
    Javier wins an oly medal.
    Chan wins an oly medal, if that one is gold, I'd be the happiest.
    S/S bring mind-blowingly amazing two programs and go clean to get OGM, their long-dreamt goal, a crowning touch to their glorious career.

    Mao and Dai win OGM. This is my biggest wish
    S/S win OGM with their best programs in their career
    Nathalie/Fabian win an oly medal.
    V/M and D/W to place 1 and 2 at olys (in whatever order. They are too good to pull a Maroney. I think I want D/W to take the gold this time. It would be a shame for one of the best ice dance couple to retire without the Olympic title)
    russian ladies skate well at Sochi
    Javier and Kozuka win an oly medal
    Carolina and Yuna win an oly medal
    Zijun wins a medal at 2013 Worlds

    37.26 9.25 9.07 9.39 9.39 9.43 V/M, GPF SD

    57.63 9.54 9.46 9.71 9.75 9.68 D/W, GPF FD
    56.86 9.39 9.29 9.61 9.61 9.64 V/M, GPF FD

    37.82 9.32 9.43 9.39 9.61 9.50 D/W, 4CC SD (they were 2nd)
    37.62 9.39 9.14 9.50 9.50 9.54 V/M, 4CC SD (they were 1st)

    57.74 9.54 9.43 9.71 9.71 9.89 D/W, 4CC FD
    56.47 9.39 9.25 9.25 9.75 9.54 V/M, 4CC FD

    For next year my wish is that the top skaters at the Olympics reach their peak. I would love for Kostner to medal with two clean programs. I would love for Mao to skate an 8-triple performance, and it's hard to envision anyone even attempting that for many years to come. I would love for Chan and Dai to skate clean and Fernandez to land 3 quads, resulting in a nail biter. If not clean performances, I really hope that the skaters who deserve the podium make the podium, even if they're not "supposed" to make the podium.

    For following years, my wish is that the Ladies up their technical content and we start seeing 7-triple performances again -- hopefully Radionova/Sakhamovich, etc. develop artistically and really push the field the way Kim did. Maybe more 3A's or even a quad. I would hate to see the typical slump in the years following the Olympics.

    I'd love to see men attempting higher-level quads in competitions. By 2018, would love to see an Olympics with most men attempting 2 quads in the SP and 2 quads in the FS.

    I hope PCS is ironed out so that lesser skaters who skate lights out with high difficulty get the marks they deserve, even if they haven't been around for a while, and also so top skaters aren't held up in wake of errors.

    I would love for Kim to stick around for the Olympics in South Korea, much like Plushenko in Sochi.

    In general, I'd love for the world to be excited about figure skating again, especially since aesthetically it is one of the most beautiful sports and athletically it's one of the most difficult.

    I find this comment rather mean spirited, sorry. I think they're both great teams, but let's not put one down to elevate the other.

    It won't happen. Just like I wish there was some way to reward, not punish directly at least, V and M for trying so many different things while D and W always were safe. I was always surprised the lack of ability of D and W to do the latin dances and tangos. Sure they are good but they really did not pick up on the nuances. Yet they got rewarded still.

    And I was surprised at V&M's inability to convey polka happiness, bounciness, and general perkiness.

    Fortunately for both teams (and the fans), they both are good at quickstep, which is next year's SD pattern dance.

    I thought it was finnstep? I guess my wish will be V and M in part because i don't want the world to assume how great G and P are for winning to OGM. They were good but werelucky to get one OGM.

    The Finnstep is a quickstep, derived from the quickstep OD of Rahkamo & Kokko, the Finns. So the pattern dance is the Finnstep, but the general character of the Finnstep is quickstep.

    I wish for a Russian sweep of EVERYTHING with all the Russians skating clean and well.

    The amount of whining and moaning and crying in the horrendously biased press and the horrendously biased forums would be amazing!

    Hah, as amusing as that would be I'm pretty certain it won't happen in singles and absolutely certain it won't happen in ice dance (although B/S likely just need to stay on their feet to claim bronze).

    For clean performances all around at the Olympics, without any weird controversy over the scores. That being said, my wish list would be a return to the 6.0 system at some point after Sochi and an expansion of the Grand Prix to about 10 events to establish a more legimate and prestigious pro skating tour that gets rid of the silly "pro" and "amateur" distinctions once and for all.
