The Olympic ladies event does usually go as roughly predicted as matter of fact: 1980- Fratianne and Poetzsch 1-2 in any order as expected. One of Lurz, Watanabe, or Marie Allen bronze as expected. 1984- Sumners and Witt 1-2 in any order as expected. Crapshoot for bronze as expected. 1988- Witt winning as expected. Thomas on podium as expected. On home ice Manley on podium not surprising either. 1992- Yamaguchi and Ito 1-2 in any order as expected. One of Kerigan or Harding bronze as expected. 1994- Kerrigan and Baiul 1-2 in any order as expected. One of Bonaly, Sato, or Chen bronze as expected. 1998- Kwan and Lipinski 1-2 in any order as expected. Crapshoot for bronze as expected. 2002- Slutskaya, Kwan, and Hughes as the podium in some order as everyone expected. Hughes winning was a surprise I admit. 2006- A podium of Cohen, Slutskaya, Arakawa as expected. With Slutskaya's age, illess, and Olympic history her not winning wasnt a shock. 2010- The expected podium.
