Junior Grand Prix: South Africa

In a stunning reversal from last week when no American's made the podium, this week the American's swept the podium at the Junior Grand Prix in Cape town, South Africa,

Richard Dornbush took the men's title, his second title on the Junior Grand Prix. Alexe Gilles bettered her silver from Mexico and won the ladies title. Madison and Keiffer Hubbell stayed consistent and won the Ice Dance title.

Given these results, Dornbush, Gilles, and the Hubbell's will qualify for the Junior Grand Prix Final in South Korea. Gilles and Donohue, who took the silver in Ice Dance should also make the JGP Final. Amanda Dobbs who won the ladies Bronze medal also should qualify for the JGP Final.

Overall, a very successful day for the Americans! Full results can be seen here.
