They have the tenth highest personal best coming into Junior Worlds, quite an achievement for a team in their first season together in ice-dance. Good luck to them!

Jeffrey Chen announced today on his instagram that he and Katarina had to withdraw from this week's Nationals due to his torn ACL. Bummer. I was looking forward to seeing them. :(
