    If Carolina shows up she wins. Silver and bronze to Russians, I will guess Leonova and Tuktamysheva.

    I voted for Tuktamysheva, Kostner and Korpi. Is Lipnitskaia not eligible for Euros?

    Carolina lost to Tuktamisheva at last year's TEB. It's not that easy ;)

    Based on what? We haven't even seen her compete this season.

    Is Leonova definitely on the Russian Euro team?

    There are 4 russian ladies on this list. So, I don't think we already know the russian team for euros. ;)

    Leonova is tanking this season, last chance to redeem herself at Nationals, Makarova is worse
    and Polina K. is inconsistent so not much of a choice for No.3, lol

    Since skating anything like she did last year, she crushes everyone on this list. If she is a bit down from last year she still beats everyone on this list unless Lipnitskaya regains her early season/last season form 100%. She also has a history of delivering at Europeans even in her headcase years past.

    Lipnitskaya cant compete though she's too young

    about Caro she's not a guaranteed Gold, she can medal but it will be her first start from returning to competition from her brief break

    Tuk, Kiira, Kostner are gold contenders
    some other inconsistent skaters might podium as well like Elene, Sotnikova, Leonova, Helgesson

    Sorry forgot for a moment about Julia L. I was thinking for a moment the age rule only applied to Worlds and Olympics.

    I agree Caro is not guaranteed gold I guess, but she will have to show up in really bad shape and skate poorly to lose in this field, which is not a very good one. The best skaters at the moment are clearly Wagner, Asada, probably Kostner (pending how she looks here), Suzuki, and once she returns nearly certainly Kim. The young Russians are very much works in progress at this point, and even Korpi's better LPs dont score big.

    Liza skated very well at her most recent GP, and she narrowly missed the podium in her first GP back from injury. If she continues to improve, she could be a gold contender at the Euros.

    Carolina Kostner and Kiira Korpii are shoe-ins.

    I love Elene Gedevanishvilli's programs this year. I can only hope that she skates superbly at 4CC and falter at Worlds (so other countries can get multiple spots for the Olympics XD). Mean but strategic

    No, she won't debut at Euros. She will skate at Italian Nationals in December for sure and there are rumours she will be attending Golden Spin in Zagreb in mid December. This hasn't been confirmed yet though ...

    Same :swoon: I can't wait to see her programs!!

    I checked, Golden Spin is Dec 13-16 in Zagreb, Italian Nationals Dec 19-22 in Milano, so that sounds doable.

    Going with the crowd here, Kostner, Korpi and Tuktamisheva. But I think that Leonova has a shot too and so does Elene G who skates one of my favorite long programs this season in the ladies' field.:swoon:

    Korpi gold, Kostner silver, Elene bronze. The only Russian woman who may have a chance is Liza. Leonova always bombs at Euros.
