    I really love Berntsson's SP from this season. It is so much voidier and crazier than last year even though he uses the same music.
    And I also really like Schultheiß. I never thought Romeo and Juliet would fit him but he has done a great job with it, IMO. It is a stretch for him to do something classical but he did it and he even added something new to the theme which I hadn't thought would be possible for such a beaten-to-death-music.
    Majorov has great potential for sure but isn't there yet. He could be the surprise winner if Berntsson's nerves and lack of training get the better of him and Schultheiß bombs but I wouldn't count on it.
    Therefore, my money is on Schultheiß.

    SkateSweden.se has published highlights from the press conference, including comments by Schultheiss and Majorov: http://iof2.idrottonline.se/SvenskaK...lladdadeforSM/ The only skater who was missing was Berntsson, whose train was delayed due to a snowstorm between Gothenburg and Malmö. He arrived just in time for the end of the meeting, though.

    I know I'm not allowed to post spoilers during the competition, but after watching the live stream for the short program, it looks like one of these guys may have knocked himself out of the gold medal position.

    SVT had a news report on the Swedish Championships, which included brief interviews with Sasha and Koffe, plus clips of the Top 3 men's long programs: http://svtplay.se/v/2274812/konstakn...bast_i_sverige

    As always, an English translation is greatly appreciated!
