Eh. It's just a feeling. I wouldn't be shocked if they did, I'm hardly a practising psychic :lol: but for some reason I think they won't quite get there.

its a good point. all of them are probably too young and still developing. conquering an olympic gold requires a lot of experience in competitions, maturity in all areas and the ability to put together big jumps with stellar skating skills. it takes more time than we would expect.
on the podium i see someone like Ashley, who's becoming a complete skater and developing the necessary toughness. she already went through the ordeal of not making the team so she knows what it takes.
