Pic of the Week

With most of the attention going to the Senior skaters at the Grand Prix Final, it's easy to forget that there is a very talented group of Juniors competing this week in Tokyo as well.

Ross Miner is certainly in the mix to medal, if not win, this weeks' men's event at the Grand Prix Final. Ross qualified to the Final right behind Japan's Yuzuru Hanyu on the strength of a win at JGP Lake Placid and a silver medal at JGP Croatia.

Miner is just one of several American Juniors competing this week that also includes Simpson and Miller, Kiri Baga, Angela Maxwell, Christina Gao, Ellie Kawamura, Maia and Alex Shibutani, Cannuscio and Lorello, Richard Dornbush and Grant Hochstein.

The U.S. is in fact the best represented nation at this season's Grand Prix Final (amongst both the Junior and Seniors!), no small feat to say the least.

Good luck to all the Junior competitors competing this week in Japan!
