The first person on the list is Evan Lysacek, who hasn't competed since 2010, and therefore hasn't posted an international qualifying score for these Olympics.  Unless he manages to do that within the next few weeks, he won't be eligible to be named to the U.S. team, and even if he does get to Sochi, he's not remotely a medal contender.  The only sport I know is figure skating, but I'm going to assume the rest of this article is bullshiat too, based on that example.

Meanwhile, here's Meryl Davis and Charlie White's free dance.  They're favored to become the first U.S. ice dancers to win an Olympic gold medal, and as a bonus, they're going to do it in Russia.  The lift about 35 seconds into this program is the most impressive thing anyone has done in figure skating in the past four years.

Not supposed to do lifts in ice dancing. I hate that it's become more like pairs in recent years. And I hesitate to call them favorites when they're up against Canadians Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, who won gold in Vancouver with this and have been trading World Championships with them for the past five years.

Of course, in dishonest competition (ie: anything that requires a "judge"), there tends to be favourtism for the home side and neighbours, so expect Ekaterina Bobrova and Dmitri Soloviev to probably take the gold with other Eastern Europeans receiving beneficial scores at Sochi at the expense of the North Americans and Asians. Don't blame me, blame the crooked aristocratic euro-centric corruption that infests these Games.

/yeah, I pay attention to this shiat
//and I'm not gay
///what of it?
////still not a sport

I won't deny Virtue & Moir have a shot, but so far this season, Davis & White have been stronger all around. Nobody else is going to touch those two - there's only enough politics left in dance to get Russia a bronze they probably don't deserve. Don't be so sure it'll be Bobrova & Soloviev, though. Ilinykh & Katsalopov just beat Pechalat & Bourzat in France, and they're a team with long term potential. The Russian fed would love to get them on the podium. Bronze is going to be where the maneuvering happens, but D&W and V&M are only competing against each other.
