    Karen Chen

    Karen Chen, or why there is still hope for technique and artistry in American figure skating.

    See here what I mean.

    Seriously, I am SO impressed by this junior 15-year-old. She skates like a senior. Such expression, much artistry. We should all watch for her this season for JWC.

    I have been interested in Karen's skating since I saw her in this amazing performance in an exhibition in 2012.

    Pacing. Hope she is not rushed or pushed in ways which put her at risk for injury. A wonderful talent. Hope to see her continue to thrive.

    Doesn't not qualifying for the JGPF mean she will have to go to sectionals? If so, that means we'll get to see her in a couple of weeks.

    Yes, we should know whether she is scheduled for sectionals soon. Ice Network will air Pacific Coast Sectionals.

    Yes, I am. I think her skating is beautiful: her spins, extensions and elegant steps. I just wish she could get her stamina and jumps back consistently in the LP after her ankle injury.

    I hope she overcome her injuries soon
    with the current field of US lady skaters being so inconsistent
    she could have a bright future for 2018 and beyond

    Those UR's and fall though. It seems she was judged a little liberally in the LP, that would receive a lower score in an international competition. I would say she has a lot to work on based on those protocols. But, I am excited for her in Nationals, I LOVE her skating!
