@tgordon92,
@tgordon92 is right; Norway should be moved up and split by gender. I'll fix this in the rules. If you already posted picks, please edit your post, or repost your new picks.

Sorry for this gaffe--I should've reviewed the groupings a little closer...

@wheel158,
Is there going to be another country bumped up into the group B to take Norway's spot?

@tsarstepan,
No, we should be OK with the 5 remaining nations in Group B.

I may change my mind, since I've more reading to do, and if Norway gets moved, then change picks, but I'll post now to get the matter in hand, lest I forget:

A) USA Men, Canada
B) Norway, South Korea
C) France, Netherlands
D) Japan, Poland, Slovenia, Croatia (may put Slovakia in instead)


I'm still the same on A), maybe to my detriment, and Add Switzerland to B).

@tsarstepan,
Are you kidding? I don't even know if I spelled it correctly.

But it sounds cold.

And, I have it on good authority they won a medal at the last one.

Plus, I understand they are giving out a $250,000 bonus for a gold medal, so there's that.

Drat! My picks - which I wrote down yesterday morning - are almost identical to Tgordon's. I have China instead of South Korea.

Denis Ten got the silver in last year's world figure skating championships.

Haven't heard much from him this year though. He's been out with an injury much of the season. (Of course, he might have recovered by now....)
