    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?? ...)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yHVKoCPmxNA

    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.

    I admit, I am totally biased when it comes to Anna. I have been a fan of her skating for a few years now, and over the past year or so I have become quite good friends with her.

    Anna was a very promising Junior level skater. 2010 was definitely her best year. In Russian Juniors, she finished 2nd, coming back from a disappointing 8th in the SP to win the FS. It is worth looking at the results sheet to see the names that Anna beat! Then in Junior Worlds, Anna came 5th (behind Murakami, Zawadski, Agafanova and Shelepin). This time, she won the SP, but came 8th in the FS.

    But the next few years were tough for Anna. First, she had problems with her leg, which ultimately needed surgery. Then her family decided to move to Switzerland, as Anna’s brother was at a private school there.

    About a year ago, Anna did an interview with a Russian language newspaper in Switzerland (translation on FSU) and she admitted that she found it very hard to adjust to living in a foreign country, and getting taught in a foreign language and everything. I found it very upsetting to hear this and, after reading it, I just wanted to fly over there and give her a big hug!

    But, things have improved since then. Anna has settled into life in Switzerland, and is actually enjoying living there now (I asked her about it myself). She entered Swiss Nationals in 2012, and finished 2nd at her first attempt. Then, in 2013, she won the title.

    Anna competed for Switzerland at the World Championships this year, and although she made quite a few mistakes, and had a few falls, you could see how much she was enjoying the experience.

    Nevertheless, for my choices of programmes to watch, I am going to go back to her Junior days. The SP in particular is brilliant!

    2010 Junior World Championships SP
    2010 Russian Junior Championships FS
    Some addition.
    Anna Ovcharova was 2nd at Russian JrNats 2010, after Agafonova. She was ahead Shelepen, Tuktamysheva, Lipnitskaia, Sotnikova, Radionova. Lipnitskaia and Radionova that season were very young but well known as very talented skaters.
    She did not compete at season 2010/2011 because of medical reasons.
    At season 2011/2012 RusFed was good for her. Anna had two Russian Cup Events (6 and 8 places) and SeniorB (Coupe de Nice 2011 - 3rd place). She was also an Nationals (by solution of RusFed, 6 and 8 places of Russian Cup Events were not high enough) and was 17th of 18. Anna had chance to return in Russian top, but skated not so good.
    After that she went to Switzerland (with her parents) and at season 2013/2014 competed for Switzerland at four SeniorB's and Worlds.

    There is absolutely unofficial info that she may retire.

    Has anyone mentioned Rebecca Peng, Vivian Le, Pooja Kalyan or Tessa Hong? (All USA. First 2 Novice, second 2 Intermediate last season)?

    Don't worry - I know most of that stuff. I was deliberately trying not to lay it all on this time. You see, any time Anna has come into the conversation in other threads, I have tended to go on and on about her, because I like her so much. So, I didn't want everybody to be getting bored by me again!

    Unless something has happened within the past month, Anna is definitely not retiring. A few weeks ago, she sent me a PM asking if I knew of any competitions in August. This prompted me to start a thread on here asking that very question, but I was very dismayed and upset that there was only one proper reply.

    Anyway, apart from this, she was really excited about her GP allocation at the NHK trophy. And she has been posting quite a few photos of her on the ice at Oberstdorf recently.

    Oh, how I hope this rumour isn't true!

    That is a real pity, as I really thought Kristina had a lot of potential.

    Back in December, I posted a link in Adelina's Fan Fest thread to a video that some of the CSKA skaters had made to mark Adelina's birthday. Unfortunately, that particular link doesn't work any more, but somebody posted the same video to YouTube a few months ago.

    Сборы 2013)

    For me, Adelina and Kristina were the standout stars of this video. So, it is a real shame that while one of them is now an Olympic Gold Medallist, the other has just quietly disappeared from the skating scene.

    All the best to whatever Kristina gets up to in the future

    Here is an interview of an up-and-coming hungarian skater Ivett Tóth:

    video from last year JGP: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqqR7-Bp1Is

    Hopefully, she will follow the footsteps of Júlia Sebestyén and help to make Europe a more competitive place.

    I know Tessa piqued some interest last season thanks to TSL. Rumor was Frank didn't attend NHK with Gracie b/c he'd already had plans to be with Tessa for sectionals/regionals (whichever one it was). She's a lovely skater for someone so young. Nice lines and presentation...it will be interesting to see how she progresses.

    I'm ready for the JGP season to get started. I love watching the junior ladies not only b/c many of them are so fearless and haven't succumbed to the pressure of expectation, but b/c it's always fun to say, "Well I've been watching so-and-so since their junior days." For some you get to watch them grow/mature and succeed, for others you watch them struggle...especially with the ladies. I've watched so many promising skaters teeter out once they hit the senior level. It's always a toss up.

    I'm wondering who will emerge as the one to beat this year? Last year the Russians ruled (as per usual) but no one really dominated. In seasons past, there's been a clear cut favorite (Adelina, Julia, Elena) but last season there wasn't one. None of the top Russian juniors from last year will be competing seniors this year so it's likely there will be a round two of last season. I'm excited to see what happens. The first event is less than a month away...wonder when the ISU will post the official entries list?

    Thanks!

    I'm excited to see Evgenia (such a cutie!), as well as Amber Glenn. I'm wondering who Rin Nitaya is for Japan. I've never heard of her and I can't find any YT videos of her.

    Roman Sadovsky: superb natural musicality and sensitivity, and very soft, soft jumping landings.
