Looking at the scores, looks like Boyang Jin did a descent job. A 4th place is not bad at all for a 15 year old, and first year in his international competition.

Brown is just a very special skater though. Such overall package and attention to detail are extremely rarely seen.
Isn't Brown aging out next year?

He should try to make the Senior team with JW to fall back on if he fails.

Josh deserves the GOE on his jumps...they are like twice the size of Jason's. His quad was rotated, got huge height, and looked good in the air - he very nearly landed it, so I agree that it's worth the points he got for it. I don't think Jason wuzrobbed at all, he got higher PCS than Josh after all by some 2+ points, in the SP he did not deserve higher PCS because his program was not clean and it affected the impact. Jason is a gumby doll and his spins are incredible, but besides that I don't see where he is so superior to Joshua? Tastes differ and they have very different styles so it's natural some fans will prefer one to the other, but Jason did not deserve to win this championship given the programs the two guys put out. You can argue about if they hadn't made mistakes but based on what was performed, the result is right. Josh's GOEs are fine, his jumps are gorgeous and while Brown has even better spins, for a male skater Josh's spins are still very, very good. If anything, Jason's GOEs on his jumps were a bit generous, his jumps are quite small.
