Some of the judges took that charge very seriously: predicting Kaetlyn Osmond to win Four Continents was one of my favorite predictions, courtesy of Taryn. Some of our judges didn't exactly go out on limb: predicting that Evgenia Medvedeva would win Worlds felt a little too easy. But we've got a really good mix of totally-out-there predictions, obvious jokes, really blatant (and often admitted) wishful thinking, more scaled back possibly-realistic predictions, and pretty safe guesses. Let's review what everyone predicted for 2015-2016!
Predictions are presented by skater. In cases when more than one skater is mentioned, I made an arbitrary decision to assign the prediction to the skater of my choosing. And if the prediction was too entangled to pull out a single skater, I put it at the bottom in either a country or international grouping. Predictions are listed in the order they were made.
I've also made the bold (get it) decision to editorialize a bit. It's been fun to read the judges' thoughts all season, even when I disagreed with them (which happened quite a bit), and I'm excited to say my piece, too!
