Fan Zone article on 2022 World Junior champs Oona & Gage Brown by @clairecloutier (May 25):
Last month, Oona Brown and Gage Brown achieved the biggest success of their career to date, winning a world title in ice dance at the ISU World Junior Figure Skating

It's a choice they've been contemplating for several months.
"Moving up makes a lot of sense, having just won Junior Worlds," Gage said. "We're leaning toward seniors right now, and our coaches' stance is the same."
"But we're not 100% sure," Oona cautioned.
"If we do juniors again, it puts pressure on," Gage noted as being the reigning Junior World champions would mean high expectations for them. "I'm confident that we could do well. But, it would be nice to get a couple of senior years under our belt. I feel like now is the right time. And I'm actually pretty excited."
