Time to speculate: Russia in a tight squeeze!
To the horror of Russian skating, there is only room for one male skater to represent Russia in sochi.
My questions are:
Who do you think will make it to Sochi?
Who do you want to go to Sochi?
Which will prevail next year: youth (gachinski, kovtun etc.) or experience (plushenko, menshov etc.)
Are you a plushenko or menshov fan?
I just have to assume that even though his wins in 2012 and 2013 weren't exactly extreme blowouts plushenko would win over everyone like he has been. Though maybe the Russian federation will just pick kovtun because they love him so much and unlike plushenko anyone else like gachinski or kovtun could be relied on more than plushenko to do both team and individual! No i am sure that no matter what happens if plushenko wins Russian nationals or loses and beats them at euros plushenko is going to the Olympics again. If there is no plushenko kovtun vs gachinski I bet they go with kovtun unless gachinski is really really impressive.
I wish Menshov could go, but I don't think they'll pick him, especially after he popped his shoulder out at WTT. I think it'll be Plushenko if he is even remotely healthy. If not, maybe Kovtun or Gachinski but Voronov is in the running too.
