They'd challenge for Gold. :shuffle:


Europe only has two hopes, and they're both so fragile.

Neither girl has ever skated two back to back clean programmes at the same competition, I'm HOPING that this will be the year.

Lepisto's FP at the Olympics was sensational.
Korpii has great programmes and the jumps too.

Mao/Miki/Suzuki..........Nagasu.............Are the top gals this season and I see no reason why clean Fins couldn't beat them all.

Will they ever go clean????

Lepisto's olympic fp cures cancer :swoon:
Korpi has one of the better programs this year, and if she lands her shites including 3-3, a spot on the podium should be a fair game. Lepisto is injured, so I'm not too optimistic about her chances, but she should contend for WG if she replicates her olympic performance.

You should add Carolina and Ksenia to the list. I think they are very capable of winning World medals should they skate clean. I like Kiira but I don't know if she'll get the PCS.

Right now the World title is wide open for the ladiezzzzz. :yawn: Things would be so much more interesting right now if Yu-Na and Joannie were skating; alas, they are MIA and no one IMO is stepping up to the plate in their absences. I guess if there is a favorite at the moment, it would be Miki, even though I'm not really liking either of her programs. Still, she has been getting the job done technically and her reputation at the moment is the most intact of all the ladies. Caro and Alissa have to prove that they can be reliable. Mao has to shake off her recent habit of melting down or else she could inherit the nickname Meltdown Mao. Mirai needs to learn how to get through a LP without a SashaLPfreakout(TM). Laura needs to get healthy and stop being a DoublejumpDiva. Kiira and Akiko need to overcome their pop-itis; singling jumps is so 1914. :shuffle:

..but when was the last time Kiira skated a clean program? I think all the ones I've seen have had tons of popped jumps.

Well, Kiira is beautiful, but her skating always seems a bit tight to me. And she rarely lands all of her jumps. I doubt she will medal at Worlds. ;)

Lepisto could probably win gold since she's the judges' pet.

If Yu Na shows up at Worlds at even 80% she will cakewalk to it this year.

Having it wide open is :yawn:?

No, having Yu-Na show up and win the SP by 20 points is :yawn:! I'm happy there is actually no clear favorite this year, it makes things a bit more exicting. Right now a different lady has won every GP, it's going to come down to who nails it on competition day, and right now, that could be many people.

If Kim is technically proficient, exciting and beautiful then I've got no problem with her showing up and winning by a mile. It's not as though anyone else has really shown anything stunning in the GP series yet, though hopefully at least some of them will improve by March.

I would like to see Kiira skate to her full potential and at least medal at Europeans. Pretty sure Ksenia will be on the European podium too. As for Laura, I'm worried that she'll be hampered by injury, and even when fit and healthy she's frustrating to watch.

Poths dear, I share your hope.;)
But, first of all, Lepistö has to recover. I am afraid she still is not able to train properly.:(

Having it wide open only because no one's stepping up is :yawn:
Kim and Nakano were two skaters who always started the season strong (how Nakano didn't manage more GP golds, I'd never know). With both of them out, I've been most impressed with Czisny so far. Never in my wildest dream thought I'd say that :eek:

If Lepisto and Korpi skated clean programs at worlds... it would mean that there really was no world championship and people were running imaginary competitions in their heads.

at the very least - 3 ladies will be qualified for 2012 Worlds which means Susanna Poykio makes a return! (will Jenni Vahamaa ever return)?

Well Nakano was competing when Mao, Yuna, Miki and Joannie were in prime condition and Kostner was (dare I say a little more consistent). If she were still competing, given her jump contents, it will be enough to win.
