MEN

Gold - Jeffrey Buttle, Canada

Silver -- Stephane Lambiel, Switzerland

Bronze -- Evan Lysacek, U.S.

With or without quad, Buttle is ready to take final step to top of podium. He's got the moxie to handle home country expectations; If defending champ Lambiel finds 2005 worlds form, he'll repeat. It'll be a tight fight for gold; Lysacek had one of best free skates at Turin Olympics. He'll bring that momentum to Calgary.

WOMEN

Gold -- Sasha Cohen, U.S.

Silver -- Fumie Suguri, Japan

Bronze -- Joannie Rochette, Canada

Cohen has been a bridesmaid long enough. It's her title to win, if nerves don't get to her; Some thought Suguri deserved a better fate than fourth in Turin. It's her turn now; Rochette landed more triples than anyone in Olympic free skate. She'll rise to the occasion again.

PAIRS

Gold -- Dan Zhang/Hao Zhang, China

Silver -- Maria Petrova/Alexei Tikhonov, Russia

Bronze -- Qing Pang/Jian Tong, China

Zhangs won't be trying the quad throw that gave them so much trouble in Turin. Their time has arrived; Wily veterans Petrova and Tikhonov are podium bound again; Pang and Tong posted personal best score in Turin, just missed the medals. They won't here.

ICE DANCE

Gold -- Tanith Belbin/Benjamin Agosto, U.S.

Silver -- Marie-France Dubreuil/Patrice Lauzon, Canada

Bronze -- Isabel Delobel/Olivier Schoenfelder, France

With Olympic champs out, all eyes -- and pressure -- will be on Canadian-born Belbin and Agosto. It's their gold to lose; Fall crushed Dubreuil and Lauzon's Olympic medal dreams. They'll revel in the moment as sentimental favourites in Calgary.
