Hello, friends! THE GRAND PRIX SEASON IS FINALLY HERE! It feels great to be back sharing podium predictions and this event will be special for me because I am attending an event live for the very first time. (Make sure you follow me on Twitter for pictures, videos, and updates!) I've previewed the dance and pairs events, and now it's time for my favorites- Mens and Ladies!
Podium Predictions: Oh god, I hate picking winners in the men’s events! Considering that we haven’t seen Denis compete yet this season and that we’ve seen jump inconsistencies from Jason, I cannot pick either to win with confidence. Alright, I’m gonna take a leap of faith and pick Shoma Uno to win after his fantastic performance at the Japan Open. I think we will seen an improved Jason Brown end up in second, with Denis Ten in third. Han Yan would be my pick for fourth, with Mura and Aaron in the top six.
Podium Predictions: I’m going to play it safe and say that Satoko Miyahara will win the event. She’s been nothing if not consistent and steady- I trust her to get the job done. I would put Gracie Gold in second, because I expect a few errors from her. Based on what we saw from Julia at Finlandia, I think Evgenia Medvedeva will beat her out for third. Elizabet Tursynbaeva should round out the top five.
That's it for predictions-I'll be sharing fantasy picks tomorrow and lots of photos and video from practices on Thursday!
