I agree with everything you wrote. We voted the same way too.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.
The upcoming Olympic season could be epic. We know it will be emotional and draining for all of us and especially these great skaters.
