    Seems like this is true more true regarding the men than the women. Many of the current woman podium contenders have done very well at junior worlds.

    Well i don't think so. Adelina and Liza are so talented and consistent and she hasn't been. It is possible that she could, but i don't see her winning, just contending for the podium.

    I agree with this. A couple mistakes in the ladies event could make the difference between 2nd and 6th place, potentially. There are 7 girls planning 7 triples in their LPs and most of them are pretty well rounded skaters on top of that.

    And he hasn't won a Senior World medal. Hence...

    By the way, the answer to this thread title is: "No, a clean Agnes can not win Junior Worlds. But a DIRTY Agnes can!"
