    I think Lipnitskaya has proven that she can still do all her jumps and spins after going through the major stages of puberty. I think she probably has the best chance of gold at this stage, but injuries will surely come and go within the next 4 years
    Lipnitskaya has HARDLY grown, she has all the tough stages of growth ahead of her. Wait until she deals with hips and extra body mass around her upper thighs. That jump technique is not going to hold up. Look at Tuktamysheva over the past couple years as an example to demonstrate the body changes Lipnitskaya still has to go through. Lipnitskaya has nowhere near a woman's body yet.

    Time will tell, but I think we'll see struggles around this time next year. Hopefully she pulls through them

    The Kween. Hopefully she realizes that US skating needs her and will stage a comeback.

    Surprised Osmond and Li have so many votes. They are good skaters, but Olympic Championship caliber? I highly doubt it.
