What do you think Gracie's chances are at the Olympics, skating like she did at Nationals, repackaged by FC, and w/ the promotion of the USFSA?
I think she is a medal contender. I think Gracie's technique and SS are better than that of Sotnikova and Lipnitskaya, but the competition is in Russia which gives them an automatic leg up. Of course, either of them skating lights out in Russia would almost guarantee a medal.
Could she be any sort of factor against Mao or Yu Na?
What about Kostner? In her present state, she will be hard-pressed to compete w/ those she was supposed to.
