    Yulia is ma fav. I just love her, but I don't want her to win now. It's too soon and she's too young. I would be very happy with bronze medal but that's it.

    If she skates well and gets 5th I'm still happy to see her skate. It just speaks well of the whole sport in this case!

    Yeah, me too. I was just saying bronze, meaning that if there is to be a medal it's better that one, for now.
    I just want to see her grow and skate well, and have a long career. The medals will come with that i due time.

    Yes, but will she have time to train and perfect this in the run-up to worlds? We're only a month away! (I realize you did the eye-roll so was wondering if you were for real or being sarcastic ....)

    Very sarcastic. But she will improve. I'm sure of that.

    My cousin lives in Tokyo and tried to get tix, apparently it's slim pickings for good seats now with the intense interest in the sport there, and the likely last competitive performances from Mao and Dai. Good luck, have a great time if you go!!
    Thank you so much. There are very few tickets left, but I'm sure all the good seats are gone. The problem will be accommodations. All hotels in the area are fully book already. Unless you want to spent USD500 per night++ or spend an hour or two travelling to the venue.
    We'll see how it goes, since the flight is so cheap now for some reason.

    Winning = SP + FP under control (both!) so my guess would be:
    1) Adelina (already a winner)
    2) Mao (skates in Japan, best FP)
    3) Julia (probably the best if the season)

    Podium will be Mao, Carolina and one Russian (either Lipnitskaya or Sotnikova) but I expect the order to be different than in Sochi, meaning no Russian standing atop the podium. Gracie will probably end up 4th again. I don't think 2 Russians will be put ahead of Gracie outside of Russia, though. Ashley will probably end up around 6th. Akiko is a mystery - injuries and such.

    Let's say we pencil in the top 6: Mao, Caro, both Russians, Ashley and Gracie.

    The rest of the top 10? How about Polina, Valentina, Kanako, Mae? Sound about right?

    This assume Akiko doesn't go and Satoko or Haruka takes her spot, and I have no idea how these two others would fare in the senior top ten at this time.

    If Mae goes clean should she not be ahead of Ashley? I could see a case for that.

    I wish clean skates for everyone! <3

    Podium I'm hoping for (w/clean skates):
    1. Mao/Caro
    2. Caro/Mao
    3. Gracie/Yulia

    Podium I'm expecting (assuming clean skates):
    1. Adelina/Adelina/Mao
    2. Mao / Caro /Adelina
    3. Caro / Mao /Yulia

    Mao, w/home advantage will definitely finish on the Podium, but I'm expecting Adelina to finish no lower than 2nd (for issues of credibility after all the controversy). I would love to see Caro win, but I doubt she could take the title given the politics that seem to always come into play (homegrown hero vs. OGM reputation talked about earlier). If Adelina doesn't win (again because of politics) I foresee Yulia bumping Caro off the podium
