    Stunning program by Karen Chen! I love how she uses her arms and hands. Please please please USFS get her on the JGP ASAP!

    That's the first time I've seen Karen Chen. Lovely oozing expression and she is just gorgeous in the air. But of course I know better than to get too attached...

    Any Courtney vids yet?

    Yes, Karen should do some damage in the Junior Grand Prix.

    After these summer competitions I hope they wise up and give her a few assignments. She has very nice presentation and good technique on her jumps as well as beautiful artistry and expression. Karen would definitely be a standout on the JGP if they give her the assignments.

    Thank you for the video. I just watched it (again). Dang the girl frustrates me. She could be GREAT.
    She has the musicality, the talent and the "it" that you are either born with or not. She also has the most beautiful hands and arms (except for the cocked wrist when she sometimes has her hands overhead) in figure skating. She just doesn't seem to have the heart, (Call it drive, internal pusher, whatever) to really take it and keep it at the top.
    DH - and that's just my opinion

    Karen Chen is one of the listed alternates for the first 2 JGPs. I hope that she will be assigned to a JGP soon.

    They are complete idiots if they don't get this girl at least one event. She could be junior world champ skating like that!

    Wow she really is very good. You really can't keep your eyes off of her.

    It's amazing what Tammy Gambill has done to her jumps. No more underrotation! Hope she can survive puberty because she could also go for 2018!

    Man, was she late for a hot date or something? Incredibly rushed and quite boring, though she is a fabulous technical skater. Hold your moves, girl!

    Exactly. She doesn't look as frantic as she used to but she zipped through a lot of her movements. The program isn't that great. To me, Karen Chen has the best programs if the US ladies so far! Gracie, Mirai and Courtney need to track down her choreographer. My first impression of Karen's programs was "Wow!" Those other 3 all got various versions of "Meh."
