    US:
    Has Karen Chen already been mentioned? very mature presentation for her age
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqxWK1DOEd8

    Or Nathan Chen (are they related?? ...)

    Candada:
    Canada's big hope is Nam Nguyen

    South Korea:
    Da Bin Choi
    also they have a new ice dance and pair skating pair who are apparently very promising, but I forgot their names -_-'

    Japan:
    I think Shoma Uma looks promising
    and the newly formed Team Takahashi/ Kihara, formerly Takahashi/Tran just need some time

    China:
    Xiao Yu/ Yang Jin looked talented few years ago, I have stopped following them but I believe they're still one of the top juniors/ young seniors in China

    Karen and Nathan Chen aren't related. But I do agree that their skating is really good and I hope both of them get over their injuries.... (I think it's them?)

    Last night, my news feed on Facebook was getting inundated with videos of Lisa Nugumanova (Russia).

    Unfortunately for those that are not on Facebook, the videos that were being shared around last night had been uploaded directly to her Dad's profile. However, there are quite a few videos of her on YouTube.

    I can tell you something, for somebody so young, she looks impressive!

    So, perhaps this is somebody we should keep an eye out for in the future.

    Something recently occurred that made me want to bump this thread. I noticed that in discussion of the Philadelphia Summer Championships, a US club competition, everyone was talking about a young man named Andrew Torgashev. He is referenced in Lynn Rutherford's article here:

    http://www.icenetwork.com/news/2014/07/21/85572800

    Anyway, I went to go search for some programs of his and was pretty impressed:

    ETA: Noticed Andrew is listed as an alternate for the first JGP event.

    Impressive, indeed! YouTube indicates that this was uploaded by her dad:

    Aside from everything else, her arm movements caught my eye -- so fluid, graceful, and natural. I bet she's had a lot of ballet training.
