    I would agree with this. As much as I like Kwak, Lee, and Tuurkilla, they have no shot at a medal, at least not this season, and they are the only other "newbies" I can think of who will be attending.

    Yeah the only newbie with any shot is Murakami. The newbies who should make their debuts in the next 1-2 years of course who might be contenders include multiple women from Russia, U.S, and possibly more to come from Japan.

    As far as newbies go, I hope Maé Bérénice Méité and Kanako Murakami skate very well. I really like them both! :cheer2:

    Yuna just announce that she will compete at worlds.

    That just made the whole thing more interesting to me.

    Mae has no chance at a medal. She's a newbie, and she is talented, but as of now I'd group her with Kwak, Turkkilla, and Lee - not with Kanako. Kanako is the only newbie this season with a chance to medal. Although I will say I like what I've seen of Juulia Turkkilla, she seems poised to fill the steps of Kiira and Laura once they move on and has the characteristic great basics, strong jumps, and elegance of the best pretty finns.

    Silete is much better IMO.
