    The only skaters not confirmed are the ladies except for Japan, South Korea and the U.S.

    Pretty sure Russia will be Julia and Adelina, unless Adelina decides to end her season now.

    Any word on if Kostner is skating at worlds or if she is retiring after the Olympics?

    These are the teams listed for China, they only have 2 spots; Sui/Han are in italics.

    Pang Qing / Tong Jian
    Peng Cheng / Zhang Hao
    Sui Wenjing / Han Cong

    Given that Evgeni Krasnopolsky has just appeared on Icepartnersearch, looks like Israel will not be using its pairs spot.

    Hopefully Mao will be there to say goodbye to her home country crowd but I don't think Yuna nor Caro will have the motivation for go. I think, if clean, this should be Asada's to lose. However, it will be even more interesting to see the battle for silver and bronze. There you'll have Murakami and probably Suzuki with hunger to better their Olympic result and there you'll have Julia vs (hopefully) Adelina whose national rivalry is huge both have something to prove not only to themselves but their fans. And of course, you'll have the best set of competitive Americans in years. The USA haven't medaled since 2006 with Meissner's once in a life time performance and I think this year will be a strong battle between Gold and Wagner for the top American finish (and possibly end of that medal drought).

    It's gonna be really interesting.

    Yes, Worlds on in just a month! In the ladies, I'm thinking Carolina and Yuna will bow out. That leaves Adelina, Yulia, Gracie and Ashley to duke it out. Mao has already won Worlds so I'm thinking she's done. In the mens, again, Chan has already won Worlds. Based on his recent comment, "I can see me winning another Worlds but maybe not this year", I see him packing it in for this year maybe two and then reevaluating his chances in two years. I see Hanyu, Javier, and Ten giving it a go. The Russian man (terrible, forgetting name) who was passed by for Evgeni has alot to prove. Are Abbott and Brown going or did they give one spot to Max Aaron? Love Daisuke but I think he's done. In pairs, both Russians will be tough to beat. I think the Germans are done. I don't see anyone else in their caliber. In ice dance, I hope Meryl and Charlie finish their amateur career at Worlds but understand the financial end if you have to "make hay while the sun shines." The window of opportunity is limited for such a niche sport. Pretty sure Scott and Tessa are done. Will be very interesting to see how the young Russians pair against the senior duo and if Cappellinni and Lanotte can make it on the podium. Love them! Farewell to Pechelat and Bourzon - they were fab!!! Could Chock and Bates squeak bronze? Shibs have some thinking to do - have they hit their best or can Marina take them higher?

    It would be funny if the federations that were slighted at Olympics formed a coalition against the Russians in order to derive them of spots for next worlds. Well, it would be funny in the same way watching grudges in professional wrestling is funny.

    Agreed. He can do much better than that. I want him to have a clean FS. I like the R&J program very much and I want to see it without mistakes at least once.
