    The "I have a gut feeling that..." thread for '14-'15.

    Just for fun!
    It's way to early with a whole summer in front of us to predict what will actually happen next year. That, and the ice is slippery.
    But does anyone have any funny gut feeling that something will happen? A surprise retirement? A surprising result?
    Please share

    Here are my funny little feelings, none of which have an real reason behind them: Adelina will retire. Mao will not. Polina will win US Nationals.

    Yuzu's going to land the 4S perfectly at almost any competition.
    Denis is going to win the silver medal at the worlds.
    Unfortunately, Machida won't repeat the great performance from this year.
    S/K will beat V/T one time next season, but not at the worlds.
    Elena will win the european championship.

    Adelina (or probably different girl) is going to try to jump 4T at the GP or another official competition. Not successfully.
    I/K are going to skate together at least one more season.
    Russian girls are going to win at least two medals at the worlds.
    US team is going to win zero medals at the worlds for the second year in a row.
    Russian team will get 12 spots for Worlds 2016.
    V/T will win all their competitions and will set new world record in FP.
    W/P and/or C/L will retire after next season.
    More scandals and accusations about unfair judging.

    My gut feeling: Vera Bazarova will find a partner less truck driver-ish than Yuri Larinov. I/K will not break up. Polina Edmunds is done.
    Nah she's just getting started.

    Very excited for Polina. Her reputation has sky-rocketed since finishing 2nd at US Nats and her good showing at Sochi. I am very excited for her future. Her jumps are good!

    So many of the girls are up in the air right now b/c they are so young. Adelina and Gracie are the only ones who have made it through puberty so far. Zijun had a growth spurt last year and she's been struggling ever since. Same thing for Liza T. Julia, Elena, Anna, Polina, Karen, and all of the baby juniors are all 15-years-old or younger...no one knows what will happen with their bodies in the next year or two.

    Someone (I forget who) with a deleted comment asked me to explain why I had the feeling Adelina would not be back. And I really wish I had an answer for it. I wasn't surprised when she withdrew from Worlds, but then when the competition actually happened without her and I thought more about the depth is Russia, I just have that sneaky feeling that the Olympics was her last competition.
    To add another gut feeling to my list: Aliona Savchenko and the new partner thing will never get off the ground. I don't think we'll ever see them compete.

    I think you should correct the name to "Korobeynikova". The way you put it sounds very obscene in russian

    a mistype
    but there seems to be sort of a Polina name curse ?

    look what happened

    Polina Korobeynikova - grew too tall and is now into obscurity
    Polina Agafonova - when she grew and filled out she now is a natural UR
    Polina Shelepen - got injured and now into obscurity with No.1 Grimm Reaper Coach Sokolovkaya

    I predict Polina Edmuns will suffer the same fate, her dad was very tall btw
    she isnt done growing and will get taller
