    I realized today that there hasn't been any news about her on the JGP. So is she still skating? Or is she too old to be on the JGP?

    I don't know the specifics. :(

    I don't really think anyone does.

    Her LP at Nationals was great this year.

    Too bad!

    I posted the following in the US Ladies chitchat thread back on 9/14:
    Usually when a skater's name is removed from a team envelope it means he/she is not competing this season. I believe Gong is currently a high school senior (she's 18).
