    ^^ How very prescient of you.

    Maybe so if it goes something like this:

    Mao, Suzuki, Osmond, Gold, Gao

    It could just as easily be:

    Mao, Osmond, Gold, Suzuki, Gao

    Or, Gao could make the podium and Mao could be toppled by Osmond or Gold for the gold.

    I was thinking Gracie, Christina and Asada. Only so that TSN will come up with some cheesy Rob Black quote like Gold wows Mao and Gao. Or if Osmond wins, "How now Mao Gao?"

    Gold - Mao Asada
    Silver - Gracie Gold
    Bronze - Christina Gao/ Kanako Murakami

    After seeing Akiko in recent competition, I doubt she can regain her good condition in a weeks time, but if she does it would be a pleasant surprise!

    A whole lot of talent will be there that's for sure. Of course we will have to sit through about 20 dreadful skaters before we get to good skaters.

    CBC has the 4CC, not TSN.

    Much as I hate saying it, yes, there will be some craptastic skates there. And I'm one of those people who support increasing the number of skaters attending! But some of these will be really, REALLY bad.

    Judges for the event: AUS, CAN, CHN, TPE, JPN, MEX, KOR, RSA, USA

    With 4 judges from the Far East, I wouldn't be surprised to see two or more Asian ladies on the podium.

    I no longer see Mao as an automatic podium finisher, and I am a huge Mao fan. Her jumps have been unreliable for a long time now, and her PCS marks cannot make up for the marks lost in the jumps department anymore. I hope I am wrong about her.

    Surprised to see Kexin Zhang on the poll. Is she still skating?

    If all perform well I think it will be Mao, Osmond, Suzuki. I think Zawdski, Gao and Gold will be just off of the podium. Imo Agnes and Christina have much better choreo and performance quality than Gracie between the jumps so I think they will finish in that order off of the podium.

    I'm hoping for an Asada, Osmond and Gold podium. I would not mind it if Osmond won the entire thing, but I'm realistic about her lack of experience and will settle for a top 3 finish.

    Ah ha! And, the rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain

    While in Japan, Asada was bred to retain all the street cred … she’s gotta have it!

    And Gold may fold … (or mayhap, she'll boldly zoom on a Starship enterprise to strange and exciting new Worlds!)
