    M. Ando (3 world medals)
    E. Zayak (3)
    M. Butyrskaya (3)
    S. Bonaly (3)
    F. Suguri (3)
    C. Kostner (3)

    Pairs:

    Baess/ Thierbach (5 world medals)
    Petrova/ Tikhonov (4)
    Jelinek/ Jelinek (4)
    Nicks/ Nicks (4)
    Shishkova/ Naumov (3)

    I am sure the change of schedule/location affected everyone's mental preparation, but I think everyone gave his/her best shot. I was just happy that worlds took place only one month later.

    Putting Chan on this list is rather ridiculous. Yes he's already won 3 World medals but he's still early in his career and was only 19 and not a real medal favorite in Vancouver. Now if he doesn't medal in Sochi he'll be at the top of the list.

    Well, the person wasn't saying that he will never win an Olympic medal. They acknowledged that some of the skaters on the list, like Chan and Ando, are still eligible.

    I agree Chan doesnt belong on that list considering he is the obvious favorite for 2014 already. Ando is 26 and unlikely to even be around, let alone medal if she is, in Sochi so her inclusion makes sense.
