Of all the favorites, I hope they place in this order:

Gold - Michelle Kwan (USA)
Silver - Sarah Hughes (USA)
Bronze - Maria Butyrskaya (RUS)

As you can see I've excluded Sasha "Headhunter" Cohen. :p

I hope Michelle wins :D


"well if Kwan skates clean, there's no doubt these judges are placing her ahead of Irina"

Well of course - Irina is Russian, and don't you know - the judges are always against the Russians :rolleyes:

i'm sorry - i couldn't resist.

i think I know what you meant - there is an advantage in going after the other main contendors isn't there?

Becca- in the ladies event you mean. It's Kwan's territory this go around. That's one for the Usa already.

oh Jarett- Michelle can't possibly be complaining about her draw his time:p

Oh, I didn't notice that....lol! :D

May the force be with Michelle and Sarah. I chose Maria because it would be nice to see her go out with a medal.

This looks good for Michelle! Win the short program!

I have a feeling that this is going to be the closest Olympic games ever contested. Kwan, Slutskaya, Hughes, Butyrskaya, Cohen, I expect a few surprises!

Go Michelle! GO USA!! :)

Lol Jarett how true;) i actually thought it was funny whan a Kwan fan posted during the GPF how Irina 'had a magnet' on her fingers to get the last position or one of them in most of her competions. BTW we miss you on the ISFF:wavey:


me too geopee i'm hoping for a nerve racking ladies event;)!

Irina is a good jumper but by far not so gracious like Maria. Russian ballet school... Well, if Maria skates clean, she will take the title. Definitely!:bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

hello Lola. i'm pulling for Maria since this is her last competition as an amateur. hope she grabs that bronze away from Hughes. As far as the gracious thing on Irina....

statistics this year show that Irina is the strongest free skater since the beginning of the season and has not lost a free skate so far- the only one to do that heading in. So there must be something about Tosca that the judges like:p

Actually, Irina is weaker this year in the short program, so that will be the hurdle for Irina on Tuesday evening. She always comes back to win the free skate though with Tosca:drool:

So if any one out there dislikes Irina, the short program is the time to wish her bad luck since she has been struggling at that portion of the competition. LETS HOPE NOT;)! i'm hoping all the ladies skate to their capabilities and give us a memorable two nights of nerve racking skating:hearts:
