For the second time, Jo is the recipient of the Petro-Canada FACE grant (the first was in 2016):

Hi SnowWhite, you're going to have change several URLs in the first post because my main Vimeo account was deleted in July after the site changed its policy so that free accounts have a storage limit of a measly 5 GB. :gaah: Since mine had already reached 50 GB at that point, I lost about 200 videos in one fell swoop. :bang: I've re-uploaded Joseph's performances, so when you have the time, please correct the dead links.

Since we probably won't get any news for a while, I thought I'd share CBC's coverage of Joseph's 2018 Junior Worlds LP (which doesn't seem to be available on YouTube), in case some of you who live outside of Canada were interested in hearing the commentary: https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6vihvm

It's not in HD, but it's better than nothing. His SP wasn't broadcast on Canadian television.

My vids of Joseph's performances from the SC Challenge are 3 weeks late, but better late than never. (I have the best---and worst---excuse ever; if you haven't already heard about my life-threatening incident, you can read about it here: https://www.goldenskate.com/forum/showthread.php?72200-2018-19-Canadian-figure-skating&p=2266347&viewfull=1#post2266347 )

SP: https://streamable.com/x6dis

LP: https://streamable.com/qdzt7

Considering that he was last year's SC Challenge champion, this competition must have been a huge disappointment for him, and I almost wanted to cry during the livestream. :cry: Perhaps this is an unpopular opinion, but maybe returning to Yvan Desjardins isn't such a bad idea...


I recently found a 2-minute interview that Jo did as part of the FACE summit: https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6zbwye The microphone doesn't seem to be working properly because I have a bit of trouble hearing what he's saying.


He will skate in the 2nd group for the SP at Nationals: https://lamp.skatecanada.ca/results/2019cdn/2019CDNSSeniorMenSP1SO.pdf

Great job Joseph :yahoo: Much better than the beginning of the season! Does this mean he gets the 2nd spot for JrWorlds?

My version of his Junior Worlds SP is watermark-free (No Commentary 720p): https://streamable.com/94995

Shame about the hand down on the 3A, but he's only about 4.5 points away from 1st, so Joseph still has a very good shot at a medal. :)

Not the finish he wanted for sure. But on the bright side, he had a great SP and a SB there! Congrats on that and good luck next season!

P.S. I almost had a meltdown in the stands on that fall. He scared me half to death :sad4:

Great interview, mostly focused on his last season.

I didn't know that he had to go back to a high school just because of moving to Toronto.
Wish him to fulfill his goals next season!

For those you who didn't check the Quebec Summer Championships thread, I'm finally active again on this forum after going "missing" for several months. To make a long story short, I did finally get the operation that I needed for my life-threatening condition, so I'm no longer in danger of dying, but my recovery isn't going as well as hoped, so if my current symptoms don't improve after a certain amount of time, I may have to undergo another medical procedure. :eek:hwell:


Here are my fancams of Jo from that competition, which he won :medal" :

Jo grew by an inch compared to last year, so he's now 5'11".

In case anyone was curious, my new avatar is his peace sign and gold medal from my (super adorable! :love: ) photo with him.

Jo's new Next Gen profile pic: https://skatecanada.ca/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Men_Phan.jpg

A recent promo image: https://twitter.com/SkateCanada/status/1160551698370351104


I was the recipient of that beautiful beaming smile of his a few times last weekend. :love: Jo is 18 now (his birthday was Aug. 4th), and his appearance has noticeably changed since I last saw him a year ago. He looks like a young man now, not the teenager that I knew previously, although he remains as endearing as ever. :luv17:

It's 2 weeks late, but Patinage Québec has finally made the archived livestreams for the Quebec Summer Championships accessible to the public (they were set to private before), so I've cut this performance from the video file I've downloaded.

LP: https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x7hfgdh Unlike the YouTube version, my vid includes Jo's replay and kiss & cry.


Unfortunately, the Junior Men SP is nowhere to be found (this event wasn't livestreamed), so we have to assume the official footage is non-existent due to a technical glitch. You'll have to go back to my fancam for that particular performance.


Jo's mother recently informed me that there's one item among the birthday goodies that I gave to him in Pierrefonds that Jo absolutely adores, and he uses it daily ever since he returned to Toronto. Wow, I'm so thrilled that he's very happy with at least one my gifts!!! :dance2:


I like to call Roman Sadovsky "my Princeling" and Nicolas Nadeau "my King", but I believe Joseph Phan is destined to become my Emperor! :bow: (His long program music is "Emperor Concerto." :biggrin: ) It's so fitting that his costume is purple, which is a regal colour.

I'm catching up on uploading a few videos that I've neglected during the tail end of last season due to my health issues.


2019 Junior Worlds Gogolev + Phan Coming Up Promo (CBC 720p): https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x7jhc1p

2019 Junior Worlds Canadian Men Preview (CBC 720p): https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x7jkxxp Jo is only mentioned briefly.

2019 Junior Worlds LP (CBC 720p): https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x7jh915 His SP wasn't aired on Canadian television.


His ISU bio has finally been updated ( http://www.isuresults.com/bios/isufs00015182.htm ), and he's now listed as 180 cm, so I was right when I estimated his new height to be 5'11".


A picture of him was used in a Skate Canada press release announcing the JGP Riga entries: https://skatecanada.ca/2019/09/canadian-skaters-headed-to-latvia-for-junior-grand-prix-3/

Patinage Québec's newest Facebook banner features Jo: https://www.facebook.com/patinageqc/photos/a.312103792181604/2485876061471022/?type=3&theater
