I will not be ignored! -Me
Well what do you expect? Tom Zzzzz doesn't know how to make world champions.
Junior Worlds seemed to have two strange periods. 1982-1987 and 96/97-2002/2003.
deffinitly Mao Asada her victory was soo mesmering, a genius at the age of 15 doing 3A and 3-3 and performing every element flawless,gourges spins, beautifully extended spirals, unbelievable fast and diffecult steps, this performance was the biggest indication to kind of skater she is, and what the future she hold for her... hands down Mao Asada
I thought Mao Asada's Junior worlds win was spectacular, with 3A and the whole program just flowed perfectly. Never seen a skater be so graceful at 15. Rachael was very strong i thought. Yuna was good, but i personally thought her program was a little boring ( although her jumps were good ). Adelina was good, but i think she has been out-shinned by Julia Lipnitskaya
It's odd that of the 4 skating disciplines, only the ladies have not had a repeat winner at Junior Worlds. I think it's because it's rare that a girl wins, then is not old enough for senior Worlds next year.
I voted for Lipnitskaya. She was simply amazing this season and I can't wait to see her develop.
I voted for Yuna.
Usually when I watch Junior competitions, even the winners look mainly cute, lovely, sometimes vivacious, but still mostly juniorish. Not that it's bad, 'coz they are juniors.
But Yuna's performances were very mature, lyrical and gorgeous. For me that really makes her stand out.
I wish I could vote for Jenny Kirk in 2000, but instead I had to vote for Caroline Zhang in 2007.
YuNa's JW win was a historic event of Korean skating. It was the first major championship for Korean figure skating and it was when ordinary Korean people began to know her name.
