    News Messing ready to challenge the best

    It's hard to miss USA's Keegan Messing at any competition in which he competes. The 2010 Junior Worlds fourth place finisher is just that kind of guy.

    Paula, Thanks for the interview of Keegan! We really enjoyed his skating at Liberty this year.

    Here's his new SP to Robin Hood from this year's Liberty competition:

    And here's his Hulk LP from last year's Liberty competition. This year he put in a 4T:

    I really liked last year's Hulk costume, where he had the green Hulk arm breaking out of the plaid shirt.

    He is definitely one to follow. Almost medaling at Jr worlds-it was a very narrow loss for bronze.

    I have seen his skating several times before. He is a really amazing skater. I am always puzzled by his huge jumps with his small body. I love his triple axels. They are really solid. He is very fast and has really quick rotations in the air.

    Keegan is FANTASTIC! I love watching him skate.

    Read this article while in Fairbanks this weekend (saw GregPet skate for the first time since 2008! SO HAPPY) and got all giddy. It's about time he got recognized. With the fact that skating is not well sponsored/supported up here in Alaska and he doesn't get as much ice time as others in his group do it's amazing what he's accomplished!
