With Yuna kim confirmed retired and Asada and Kostner sitting out 2014 /15 (nicer way of saying retired?), which of the current batch of ladies do you think will be able to push the skating technical envelop?
1. The next lady to land a ratified 3A in competition?
2. The first lady to land a fully rotated quad jump under CoP?
3. The skater who will triple loop off running three turns (aka Slutskaya, Kostner - I love that entrance)?
4. Anyone crazy enough to go for a 3-3-3 jump layout in competition? (unlikely though cos the scores dun reward the difficulty)
Let me know who in your opinion will be able to hit the next big jumps.
My guess: 3A = Sotnikova or Tuk (if they fix their headcase issues); Quad = Radionova (I am not so sure of Julia Lip - her jumps are tiny, she depends too much on rotating fast but once she grows a bit more??)
