Adam Rippon has shown that he really has what it takes to be a champion. I've always kept tabs on the junior skaters but at this years nationals I really took a detailed look at them, especially the men, and was incredibly impressed. Adam Rippon leads an extremely talented field of U.S. men in Bulgaria, all three in the top six, and I can tell you our future of U.S. men (Adam Rippon included!) looks very bright.
Adam, good luck in the free skate and in your future endeavours! I can't help but get the feeling that this guy is trying to make his time now...and what better time with the Olympics less than two years away!
UPDATE: And has fate would have it...Adam Rippon has won the Junior World Title!
