At this juncture, I think the favourites for the Olympic Ladies competition have to be Kostner, Wagner, and Suzuki. I don't believe that Kim Yu-Na or Miki Ando will be coming back. I also think it unlikely that Mao Asada will ever get back to her best - if anything her technical problems are getting worse, not better (hope she proves me wrong). As for Sotnikova, Tuktamysheva, Lipnitskaya, Gold, Osmond, and the various other newbies, they need time to get through their various growth issues and to get there PCS levels up. I think the 2014 Olympics will come too soon for them, and that their time will come in the next quad leading up to the 2018 Olympics. Of course, doing a Lipinski/Hughes is by no means out of the question - but, realistically, I think it unlikely. That leaves Kostner, Wagner, and Suzuki as the leading contenders. Czisny, Leonova, and maybe one or two others are also possibilities, but only as outsiders due to their lack of consistency. Hence, hypothetically, if it does come down to a contest between Kostner, Wagner, and Suzuki for the Gold in Sochi, who would win?
