dream team for me is Kostornaia, Valieva and Shcherbakova. although obviously i wouldn't be mad at all if Trusova made it, she also deserves it, but for me is too much of a wild card at the moment. if things had gone the way we all expected them to in the FS this past weekend, she would have been well off the podium.

Kostornaia and Valieva have a level of skating that deserves to be seen on the Olympic stage. when in form both of them are consistent (more so Kostornaia). Aliona's 3A is the best in the world and Valievas Rippon 4T is sublime.

Shcherbakova is an artist and has the technical arsenal as well, and her musicality is second to none. she has also proven herself consistent and trustworthy time and time again- 3x National Champion and now World Champion.
I agree with everything you wrote. We voted the same way too.

The upcoming Olympic season could be epic. We know it will be emotional and draining for all of us and especially these great skaters.

I voted for Aliona, Sasha and Daria because they are my favorites right now, but I also really wish we could see Anna, Alexandra, Aliona because they are such a talented generation and it's so unfortunate that their Worlds were cancelled. On the other hand, Maiia, Daria and Kamila are also incredible. But a trio of Alina, Evgenia and Elizaveta would be amazing as well...

Trusova because she’s an innovator, Valiava because she’s the new young thing and Tuktamysheva because she’s missed out in the past and she keeps improving.

Anna, Sasha and Aliona for the nostalgia of the trail blazing 3A trio sweeping all the podiums.

Realistically, it'll be Anna, Kamila and somebody else.

Kostornaia, Medvedeva and Valieva are the skaters I like watching the most. Anna 4th.

But Dream Team for sure is Kostornaia, Shcherbakova and Trusova. Every competition they competed together as the top 3 has always been the most exciting.

Tuktamysheva and whichever two of the young “wonder girls” are skating best at the moment.

I am a big fan of Liza, she was the first who got my vote. She always impresses me but she made me cry because of her own tears last weekend.. I was so happy for her (despite all those discussions about wrongful judging. I don´t care. She got a silver) and I really want to see her at the OG.

I also like Evgenia. She has ploughed through, despite the odds. I hope she can make it back. So she got a vote from me.

And for some reason I feel sorry for Sofia Samodurova who got a EC title unexpectedly and then just got dropped by everyone (except Liza and Mishin himself who I am sure will keep on encouraging her). So she got a vote too.

Probably not very realistic. But why should I vote for skaters whom I´d rather see in 2026 when they´ve matured? This is me, I like woman´s skating, not girl´s skating. Sorry. Sofia is a bit of a in between, but I can´t stand it when someone is successful and then gets dropped so easily.
