    Vincent Zhou won't be 13 until October so he can't compete Junior internationally until 2014-2015.

    Interested to see Sakhanovich, if she continues the Russian JGP dominance. And Polina Edmunds finally getting assignments.

    I agree with you that M/C have an awesome future ahead in ice dancing.

    Looking forward to seeing Shotaro Omori on the JGP as the leading US man. Chen's got a bit of work to do to re-establish himself. I really enjoyed Omori at JW, he was very smooth and lovely.

    but Chen was injured, if he is in good shape this coming JGP
    he can score higher than Omori, Chen already scored a 225+

    Anyone being in good shape is always an "if".

    Chen's still got a lot of growing etc to do. I'm not 100% sold on him yet for that reason. Shotaro has done most of his growing, I would imagine.

    Still, Chen was quite amazing at his first JGP. If he regains that kind of form I'd expect he could still put up higher scores than Omori, unless Omori suddenly gets a quad. Of course, where it sounds like Chen is suffering through something related to Osgood-Schlatter, it might mean that getting back into his best form and being truly healthy/free of most pain may be a multi-year process. Omori needs to work on his consistency. He was great at Junior Worlds and had a good SP at Nationals, but his FS was not terrific there and his performances on the JGP and sectionals were far from stellar. Clearly, he is capable of doing very well, but we'll have to see if he can start skating like he did at JW most of the time now.

    Chen has a problem with his knees, and it is very painful. He will outgrow the condition, but until he does he can't do lutz or 3a because the pain is so unbearable.

    I'd rather see Omori peaking at the right time, not in the JGP. JW is more important pointwise than JGP events (250 for gold, 164 for 5th place; 5th at JW is worth 328), to say nothing of prestige.

    I think one of the problems Kaetlyn Osmond had this season was she peaked much too soon: at the Challenge. Her last two performances were the worst of the season.

    Nathan‘s Osgood-Schlatter comes and goes but his ankle injury really troubled him all season.He almost recover from the injury before Omaha but norovirus ruined his championship utterly.
    So nice to see you guys concern him so much.Wish our boy a good season next year.

    I don't think they count much as they are inconsistent
    like Titushkina, Stavistkaia, Gerasimova etc.

    Is Proklova old enough to compete at JGP next season?

    I don't know why you bother with the Russian skaters then, since none of them are apparently good enough for you.

    Alexandra Proklova inconsistent?

    See video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tubgtdBhzH4
    (Moscow qualifiers to Younger Age, a month ago)

    Can anybody call girl, who skates so, "inconsistent"?
