Let's face it the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver was awful for European skaters. Not one Gold medal. Just one Ice Dance Bronze & one Pairs Bronze & a Sliver in the Men's.
In Turin it was Gold in the Pairs, Gold & Bronze in Ice Dance, Bronze in the ladies & Gold & Silver in the Men's.
SLC was Gold in Pairs, Gold & Silver in the Men's, Gold, Silver & Bronze in Ice Dance & Silver in the Ladies.
So what now for Sochi ?.
Russian ladies have really improved since Vancouver & V/T look like a lock in for the pairs gold.
But Ice Dance has been dominated by North America & European Men have had it tough without Plushenko.
Yes, Europe have an advantage with it being in Russia (just like North American skaters in Vancouver).
Will this be a good Olympics for Europe ?.
This thread is for fan's of European skaters. From medal hope's to the lower ranked skaters.
