    The Junior Pairs from WO are all missing from this list. Not sure if there are others out West yet.

    Katherine Bobak/Ian Beharry
    Shalena Rau/Phelan Simpson
    Mary Orr/Anthony Furiano

    And I think there might be another one as well.

    Junior predictions

    Junior Ladies:

    1 Seguin
    2 Daleman
    3 Purich
    4 Bergeron
    5 Cournoyer

    Seguin is a very polished skater and strong. Daleman can do it if she gets the jumps counted. Purich had a terrible short at Challenge, but depends on the jumps.

    Junior Men:

    1. Petkov
    2. Sylvester
    3. Obrien
    4. Wolfe
    5. Vandervelden

    Expect top two to stay the same from Challenge. O'Brien to move up a place. Wolfe s still getting stronger from his injury. Vandervelden had the 5th highest Free at Challenge after a disaterous short.

    Junior Pairs:

    1. Bobak/Beharry
    2. Orr/Furiano
    3. Dejardins/Bilodeau

    B/B a lock for 1st. O/F for 2nd. I picked D/B based on Challenge.

    Junior Dance:

    1-3 BC/YT or QC

    Don't really know here. Teams from BC/YT and QC are strong. I expect the Hasagawas to improve on Challenge

    Junior ladies SP has just been skated and Daleman was on fire landing 3Z ( huge ) 3S+2T and 2A , all jumps gorgeous.

    She scored 47.59 in the short.

    If she wins junior ladies there is a very good chance she will get the ticket to JW as she has by far the most consistent 3Z ( the key jump in the short this season ) of all the ladies that can go to JW. Indeed her lutz is even more consistent than that of Phaneuf and Lacoste.

    While I agree with Daleman having a great skate last night, I am not convinced that the lutz is that consistent (She missed it at Challenge and at some other competitions). will be interesting to see how she handles the pressure on Wednesday to stay ahead. Realistically, would SC send a person to Jw who never skated internaionally before?

    To be fair, most consistent lutz among the Canadian ladies doesn't equate to a consistent lutz.

    6 pairs in all of Canada? bahaha. the whole discipline should probably just be cancelled from official competition until they can actually fill the event.

    Then we would have missed the superb skate of Bobak/Beharry. That by itself made it worthwhile to have a junior competition.

    Move them up to senior, they'd do fine, I mean probably the majority of the senior teams are probably doing [Juvenile level singles] double lutzes for their side by side jumps .

    At the junior level there is no choice about the side by sides. They all have to do the double lutz. They have done double axels in sequence with each other before. So they would be doing at least double axels if they skated senior.

    Grant you they will need to add triples to be competitive as seniors. But the rest of their skating is at a pretty good senior level already.

    Some countries hold national championships even if there isn't enough competitors to fill the entire podium, let alone three warm-up groups. Why not? So there isn't a full roster of twelve teams; that's no reason to deny the others a chance to compete. Competing against other skaters at your level is a valuable experience, and it motivates them to improve.

    (I didn't know that about the sbs double lutzes, btw. I thought B&B just knew they didn't need anything more difficult than that).

    Is it normal for there to be a small field in junior pairs? Just wondering. If so, it doesn't seem to be a problem, since pairs is one of the more competitive disciplines at the senior level.
