Article on Michael Christian Martinez of the Philippines (who came so close to winning the bronze medal at the JGP in Lake Placid!): http://www.goldenskate.com/2012/09/martinez-puts-the-philippines-on-the-map-for-figure-skating/

In his free skate to King Arthur, the Filipino pulled off the triple Axel again as well as four triples and three level-four spins to move up three spots. The mistakes in the short cost him the medal in the end, which would have been a historical first for the Philippines. However, Martinez will get another chance when he competes in his second JGP in Zagreb.

Before the event in Croatia, however, Martinez will debut at the international senior level at Nebelhorn Trophy in Oberstdorf, Germany, at the end of September.

The skater is currently training in California, mostly with Ilia Kulik, but also with John Nicks and Peter Kongkasem. Over the summer he learned the triple Axel.

Good article. Michael will be age eligible for Sochi, so I wonder what kind of criteria will be applied (season results or skate-off) if Christopher Caluza qualifies an Olympic spot either via 2013 Worlds or last-chance qualifier.
