Four Continents Championship Under Way

The Four Continents Championship, which garnered such controversy because of who is NOT attending (Yu-na Kim) is under way today.  Ice dance compulsories and pairs short programs have been completed. 

The ladies field is a bit of a shock - as Japan's Akiko Suzuki and America's Amanda Dobbs OMG!!! lead Mao Asada - wondering if a fall on the beloved triple axel is to blame?  America's Caroline Zhang is in fourth place.  This is a big competition for Asada.  She is barely out of first right now but if she does not win this it will look very bad indeed for the prospects of a true rivalry between her and Kim at the Olympics.  But every competition is a new day I guess.

In the ice dance, Canada's Weaver and Poje lead (although this competition this year is just so sad for me as it is mainly a consolation for teams not making the Olympics).  America's Hubbell and Hubbell and Chock and Zuerlein lie in fifth and sixth place, respectively, but bravo for them for making that trip to Korea so soon after the ice dancing final at nationals.

In the pairs short, China's Zhang and Zhang are the leaders, with America's McLaughlin and Brubaker in second place.  Canada's Duhamel and Buntin, America's Yankowskas and Couglin, and Canada's Brodeur and Mattatall round out the top five.  I would expect Zhang and Zhang to win based on their past placements; if they don't, it will be quite an upset.  I'd like to see McLaughlin and Brubaker stay in the top three to end up on a high note.

In the men's competition, the Americans have a very strong group of competitors with Ryan Bradley, Brandon Mroz, and Adam Rippon.  I would look to them to do well here.  Although the top Japanese men are not competing, perhaps we will see an emerging star.  And we'll look out for Canadians Shawn Sawyer and Joey Russell, as well as Kazhakstan's Denis Ten, who is always capable of a surprising performance.

Full results after the jump.
