No, she's too old. The USA lady hasn't been officially announced yet and YOG takes place the week before US Nationals -- see the Youth Olympics thread in GSD (or Kiss and Cry if you have access) for all the known competitors so far: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=78858

Jordan Bauth's Icenetwork bio states that she will be competing

YaY. hope this is true
any article link source ??

It wil be interesting will Adelina hold on to her junior gold streak and beat Liza again or will Liza finally beat Adelina, hopefully the GP has also add them enough lessons and experience.
Go Tuk Tuk and Sotnikova

btw, isn't Gracie Gold too Old
like 17 and she wil be seniors by next year ?
well the US too has plenty of young talented skaters at national levels
that should be given a chance to compete. YOG could be their breakthrough

what about Julia lipnitskaya ? :confused:

Will Tuktamysheva and Sotnikova be competing in the 2012 junior worlds as well given that they are ineligible to compete in the 2012 senior worlds?

Yes, I think so
now with also Julia Lipnitskaya possibly competing at Jr. Worlds
will be interesting to watch a trio battle for Golds :cool:

Bauth finished 5th at Easterns this season. This is the best we can send to compete against other top Junior Ladies at YOG's? This suggests to me that U.S. Figure Skating might not consider this first-ever IOC event of any great significance.

What a crock! :rolleyes:

USA and Canada have conflicts with their nationals. National skaters are trying to qualify for junior worlds and envelope funding. YOG is not of high prominence yet. (Not to mention the age range is really narrow. Very few athletes meet the requirements)

I guess they're gonna be meeting familiar faces then:) Stephane and Yuna! I hope they could have yet another motivation and inspiration from this event! Best of luck girls.
