Moving up the testing structure
About Elladj, he missed out on the entire season due to a torn (something -- I'm not big on medical details!) in his knee, an injury sustained last Spring (April-May, I think). He restarted to land doubles a couple of months ago, but not in time for Nationals, so hopefully he's be back strong next year!

So happy with Yuzuru Hanyu, Nan Song, and Artur Gachinski !
Hanyu really shows himself in the competiton, he has that strong ability and special style that no one can compare. Just LOVE him skating! Very well done!
This is Song's last Junior Worlds and that will be a good memory for him. No Chinese has won a silver in this competiton before! His jumps are really beautiful and the other elements are great, just need to show more personalty in his performances and that will be perfect!
I felt so SORRY about Denis Ten, he's such a GENIUS skater, but surely this is not his season... I think his nation just put so much pressure on him, he's obviously OVERUSED! His so dynamic last year, but now he just look SOOOOOO PAIN! He's only 16, stop sending him to so many competitons!
Congratulation Hanyu, you are the future
Sorry for Denis,hope he doing better a world.
Very impressive jumping from Hanyu. He is so young and will hope that physical maturation adds strength without affecting timing too much. Growing is an adjustment. Is he too young for Senior Grand Prix events next year?
Too bad because this was the last season that Balde could compete as a junior internationally and unfortunately this season was washed out. Now he has to rely on senior B's and ihe might get Skate Canada if he does well in the senior B.

As well other candidates might emerge through summer monitoring.
I wouldn't be surprise if Skate Canada leaves 2 spots open to the best senior B skaters.
Nope! He's 15 and he's already been on JGP so he can do SGP next year!
