Nobody of competing now Junior Men can beat Josh.

with no Maxim or Yan
unless he meltdowns in the LP. Joshua has this in the bag
could be an All-American podium
USA boys are unbeatable
Too bad Maxim Kovtun or Han Yan are not here. That would have been an entertaining competition
Honestly I don't think anyone in this field is capable of toppling Joshua and Jason when they're both skating well. The question mark over Jason is always the 3A - will he land it, if he doesn't, how much damage will it do, etc. But beyond the jumps and spins, Joshua and Jason also both skate with a presence and quality that the other skaters don't yet have. They're still Junior by level, but definitely they are both Senior level skaters in terms of their maturity.

Shotaro OMORI (USA)

3A - nice height and flow
3F - landed, but scratchy
Solid skate... the americans are doing great!
SP: 39.75 + 31.07 = 70.82 (PB)
in 2nd (out of 34)
Wow Shotaro! First time for me to see him Loved him!
I think I liked Omori better than Joshua. Maybe because I dislike Joshua's costume, I think it's not helping his overall look on the ice. Jason Brown though was the best for me in terms of Pe/CH/IN.
I saw Omori in 2011 at Brasov JGP, he grew a lot, back then he was just a bit taller than Nam Nguyen. I remembered his name, he is a completely different skater since then

I have never seen omori before, but I really like his style.
Congrats to the US Boys !
how old is Shotaro ? he looks mature already
American 1-2-3 at the moment.
Shotaro only just beat Jason though, and Shotaro went pretty clean.
17, so it wouldn't surprise me if he was.
