Congrats to Shun! The jumps weren't quite there in the FS, but you can see he has huge potential. Very nice feel for the music.

Congratulations to Shun. Just qualifying for the JGPF is great, let alone to take the gold medal. Loved his FS Kiss & Cry. Not sure who was more excited -- him or the coach! :laugh: What a great moment.


Adding -- corrected my post. I meant the first time he qualified for the JGPF, not the first year he is skating as a junior.

It was incredible. And he managed to impress my figureskating averse daughter by his love for panda bear stuffy toys, so that’s all around awesome :)

Does anyone else absolutely love the music arrangement of R&J that he skates to? I'm usually very critical when it comes to arrangements and music cuts (coming from a music background) but I love his so much every time I watch him skate to it.

The final...... so good. :love: I'm so proud, especially after how devastated he was at junior nats.

Edit: I still think Yuma has better performance/musical interpretation (at least at the moment), but both skaters have their strengths.
