Does it seem like most of the supposed "favorites" for Torino already hit their stride some time in the past, and are now in a "hold on to what I got" mode? I wonder if this will leave the door open for the rising star who peaks at just the right moment.
Irina had the best year of her life last season. Does she have anything left?
Michelle is struggling to regain her one-time position at the pinnacle of the sport.
Sasha's best shot was 2004. Now she is holding steady, at best.
A year ago the Japanese ladies were the future of the sport. This year they all slid off the world podium
Plushenko battles injury and faces genuine competition for the first time since Yagudin retired.
Joubert is very good. But is he getting any better?
Did Lambiel and Buttle shoot their wads at worlds?
There is a tide in the affairs of men, which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Which shooting star will hit his/her apex at Torino? My prediction: Weir and Kostner.
