Thanks for this schedule.

You're welcome. I'm glad I started looking into the schedule ahead of time. I probably would have missed Thursday's performances.

We'll be super-cheering for Gabrielle Daleman (Newmarket, Ont.) on the Canadian team. We know her grand-dad and he's over the moon excited.

That was a very creative Triple Salchow - Double Axel combination that she did last season. I never thought I'd see an Axel as the second jump in a combination.

It's a tough Olympic year to be a female skater though. Russia is sending the two best female skaters in human history to this Olympics (both of them easily better than Yuna Kim). Unless one of them suffers a fluke fall or something, the rest of the world is going to be competing for the bronze.

Oralloy's Olympic Figure Skating Predictions, 2018 Edition

Dance
Gold: Canada - Tessa Virtue / Scott Moir
Silver: France - Gabriella Papadakis / Guillaume Cizeron
Bronze: USA - Maia Shibutani / Alex Shibutani

Ladies
Gold: Russia - Evgenia Medvedeva
Silver: Russia - Alina Zagitova
Bronze: Japan - Satoko Miyahara

Pairs
Gold: Germany - Aliona Savchenko / Bruno Massot
Silver: China - Sui Wenjing / Han Cong
Bronze: Canada - Meagan Duhamel / Eric Radford

Men
Gold: Japan - Yuzuru Hanyu
Silver: Spain - Javier Fernández
Bronze: Japan - Shoma Uno


Confidence levels

Dance:
Very high confidence that the French and Canadian teams are fighting over gold and silver. The French team recently pulled ahead of the Canadian team. But this Canadian team has a reliable history of being beaten just before the Olympics, and then coming back unbelievably strong in the Olympics themselves.

Very high confidence that the American team will get the bronze.

Ladies:
Very high confidence that these two Russians will win gold and silver. It is scary how good they both are. Really a tossup which of the two will get gold.

Low confidence on the bronze prediction. But it is my best guess.

Men and Pairs:
Low confidence. All of these people can achieve this on a good day. None of them have good days with any consistency.


Other thoughts:

I'm glad that China is finally sending Sui and Han to the Olympics. China's decision to not send them to the last Olympics was a catastrophic blunder.

@ehBeth,
I wish curling were more popular (at least in the US). It might be my favorite event, but it doesn't seem to get much convenient air time here.

@tgordon92,
Geez, I honestly didn't look at anyone else's picks before making mine. You and I have very similar picks (yet again).

Good luck!
