    Here are mine, not doing ice dance since D/W are a lock for gold, and I'm not hugely into pairs.

    Men: Hanyu, Chan, Fernandez

    Ladies: Kim, Asada, Lipnitskaia

    Team: Russia, Japan, USA

    You should participate in our predictions game. I'm the men's scorer:

    Ladies' OGM did not win at Nationals of the Olympic season since 1998. Tara:2nd, Sarah:3rd, Shizuka:3rd, Yuna:didn't participate.
    Mao did not win the Japanese Nationals this season. This is just a recent trend, though
    These three have strong technical base value and good pcs.

    Orser did not fall apart at the Olympic but came in a very close and thrilling second. He was just following his own tradition of coming in second, except once when he won the World Championship, like Brezina following his own tradition of constantly coming in 4th. Browning was really the jinxed one, likely from carrying the flag at the opening ceremony as Canadian flag bearers have always become huge disappointments. Chan should not and will not carry the flag at the Olympic opening. I hope he will get voted to carry it at the closing.

    SP: 3Lz-3T, 3F, 2A.
    LP: 3Lz-3T, 3F, 3S-2T, 3Lz, 3S, 2A-2T-2L, 2A.

    Her short program jump layout isn't weak at all. Please tell me how many other top contenders in the ladies plan to do both 3Lz and 3F in SP?
    She repeats 3Lz and 3S in her free program. Granted, She no longer does 2A-3T like in Vancouver due to the 2A limit rule. However, her LP jump layout isn't exactly too weak either.
