    The big pro for Caro this year, is that she's not expected to win, or even being on the podium. If she manages to keep calm, confident and simply happy to be again in the competition, she can skate well, quite well. Others must win and earn spots
    for their Nations, Caro (unfortunately for us) not.
    I know she is not young like others so I won't expect her to win
    but I like to watch her, she works hard to came back and respect her for it and she work with mishin which looks like not a easy thing
    why not get a medal? anything can happen...

    I expect Maria Sotskova to skate two clean programs (ok ... maybe with 2, 3 URs across event). That Free Skate at the Europeans was a bad day in office, she's known for her remarkable consistency since junior days. What result it can bring? That is a mistery, everything between 3rd to 6th is as much likely in my opinion.

    Do Karen Chen and Mai Mihara have a BV that could push them above Anna?
    No, neither of them really do. In the SP Mai could move slightly ahead in BV if she got her step sequence to level 4, but she's been hitting level 3 all season. She does have a more difficult solo jump (3F versus Anna's 3L) but the difference in base value isn't much between a flip and a loop. Karen has the same SP content as Anna but she doesn't always max her levels either which leaves points on the table.

    Anna usually earns all level 4s on her non-jump elements which helps, plus she has a sizable lead in PCS over both Karen and Mai. Even if those two could best her by a bit in TES the PCS gap would be too wide for them to catch her.

    Thank you for your answer! I'm at a stage where I have no idea about levels other than the number of turns in a spin, so I always forget about them.

    I predict Medvedeva will probably break the world records on sp, fs and total -again.

    I have posted this in a few threads, but I figured this would be good to add to this conversation, since I've seen some posts about her "2 foot skating"

    Here is Ashley training her short program on 3/22/17

    3-3 looking solid there. Let's hope it's like that in competition!

    Above is Ashley's FS run-through from today in Helsinki. Mostly marking, some jumps. Looking solid, save for the one fall.

    Instead of Amano whose judgement is overly harsh on UR, so sometime questionable but at the same time is very lenient on take-off edges, Vanessa Gusmeroli who was one of the Tech panel for the ladies at Sochi is assigned to the most important event of the year. How nice. I used to like her a lot as a skater, but as a judge, nada.

    Susan Lynch and Lena Laaksonen are also very familiar names.
