I have a feeling there is a very good chance Stephane Lambiel will win the Olympic Gold medal next year. He was able to win Worlds despite only two months of training and 2 competitions, due to injury. He has the jumps, spins, footwork, style, and musicality, of a champion. His skating at Worlds showed he is clearly one of the two best skaters in the world right now, maybe the best with Plushenko's health a question mark at the moment. If Plushenko's injury persists
I think Lambiel will be in great shape to win the Gold medal next year. I expect him to be that much better next year, his performances this year were if anything reduced by his inability to skate and train a full season like the others.
