Who is most likely to an upset at the Olympics?

I personally believe it'll be Caroline Zhang. Shes as solid as a rock. She constantly and seemingly effortlessly throws 6-7 triples per program. Her artistry is pretty good too and I think shes the dark horse. Of course, she'll have to make through the selection camp first, which as we all know, are not her best friends.

Miki Ando is also a potentially a very big threat to the podium, who knows maybe she'll pull a miki ando from the 2007 worlds!

Joannie Rochette is also a very good candiate for this position, as she recently finished 2nd at the world championships and is coming back from a sensational season.

Believe me... Miki is more than a threat to the podium! Cool

I think Miki's a huge threat! At Worlds she was really the only one who could match Yu-Na's power in her jumps (of course, poor Mao was not at her best).

BUT, I'm going to throw it out there and say MIRAI NAGASU might be a threat! Hell, no! (Even though she's not on the poll!)

I'd vote for Rochette, but at the Olympics she'll be like a 'special case'. So Miki Ando, and no one else probably. But it will greatly depend on her previous competition (what will it be, Nationals?). So, if at Nationals she fails greatly, I think she'll have some big chances to even win the Gold. But if she's fine and everybody says "hey, Miki, win the Gold, will ya?", I guess she may have some difficult time struggling for the Bronze. study

I'm not sure if CaroZ can make up her deficit of PCS scores...yet. Or any of the young Americans for that matter - this includes Ashley, Mirai, and Rachael as well. All four of them, though, when they are on - have more than enough ability to post an impressive TES score (CaroZ and Mirai in particular). Once their PCS scores start improving they can definitely become a podium threat.

But until then, I say Miki or Joannie. I love you I'm personally anxious for CaroK to get herself back in form, and it would be interesting to see if her sports psychologist arrangement will help out to the level that it did to Joannie... Yep!

ops! I forgot a word at the title! Moderators can't fix that in this section or else I would have fixed it. Can an admin fix it? Thank you!

If I had to choose someone to win other than Mao, it would definitely be Sasha. Not only because she's my second favorite skater, next to Mao, but because I think she has the most potential to do it. I know she had a reputation for choking under pressure, but who knows where her head is at NOW. If her mental game is finally there, she will be a huge threat. I think Miki, and Joanne will be the next biggest threats.
