    How many Olympic medalists (men/women/pairs) will skate clean?

    I'd love for all the Olympic medalists to have mistake free short and long programs, but I anticipate a fall or two (or seven or eight).

    I'm wondering how you all think the men, women, and pairs will skate.

    Will it be a fall free Olympics?

    I am going to go out on a limb and call Voloszhar & Trankov and Kim winning gold with clean performance, and Julia L. winning a medal with a clean performance. The other 6 medals will not be won by clean performances.

    I voted incorrectly. I thought this only considered the gold medalists. I think for gold, D/W and V/T will win with clean programs. Chan will win with one or two falls and Yu-Na will win with 0-1 falls (probably 0, but I don't think clean is completely guaranteed). If V/M win dance they'll also be clean but if S/S wins pairs they won't be (probably one fall). I have no idea about the other men or ladies or the other medalists.. well, besides that if someone besides Chan wins they will have to be clean.

    I think whoever wins the bronze will have to be clean. I think the gold and silver will be between Yuna and Mao, and both will either be clean or mostly clean. I think a clean Julia and a clean Ashley are in the running for the bronze, maybe a clean Akiko, and Carolina is only in the running if she somehow manages to skate a clean performance then and there, which we will have to wait on.

    And I even took off my rose-coloured glasses before I voted:

    No Olympic medalist will fall

    After how the final group of Ladies skated in Vancouver i expect this time it will be more like 1992. A splatfest.

    I don't want to jinx it for my faves, so I won't. You can generally count on mistakes in pairs though. I don't think any of the medalers for pairs in 2010 skated completely clean.

    This is why I'm okay with V/T winning. At SA, all the teams except V/T had one or more visible errors, and V/T were the only ones who looked Olympics ready. If they're clean, then I have no problem with them winning gold.

    P/T skated a clean long program.. I don't remember if they made any mistakes in the short though. Anyone?

    Their short program was clean - they were 4th.
