2017 JGP Australia Men’s Preview

Junior Grand Prix events outside of Europe tend to have smaller fields, and this one is no exception.  Only 16 men from 11 countries are competing at this event.  The junior level has become increasingly more and more competitive, with top junior men now expected to execute not only consistent triple axels but multiple quadruple jumps.  The quad is not allowed in the short program, so scores may seem much closer after that segment.  The required solo jump for juniors this year is a lutz which also can be a great divider.  Since the lutz is one of the more difficult jumps, some competitors may not be able to do the triple and will have to settle for a double, leaving points on the table.

Alexei Krasnozhon is the highest ranked competitor returning from last season.  He finished 8th at Junior Worlds where he set a new personal best short program, but he was still over 30 points from the podium.  This will be his third year on the JGP circuit, but he had his best season last year, taking home a gold and a silver medal and qualifying for his first Final, where he placed 5th.  His personal best score was set at JGP Czech Republic last season, but he was never quite able to replicate it.  The rest of the season he scored between 208 and 211, over 10 points less than his personal best.

Roman Savosin is going into his second season on the Junior Grand Prix circuit.  He won a gold and bronze medal and qualified for the Final, where he finished 4th.  He finished just behind Krasnozhon at one event, and just ahead of him at another.  His personal best is just a shade below Krasnozhon’s, however, his was set at the senior level, where there is an extra choreographic step sequence.  In junior level competition, he never scored above a 212 last season, and even scored below the 200 point mark once.  He finished a distant 8th at Russian nationals and was not named to the Junior Worlds team.

Joseph Phan skated his first Junior Grand Prix season last year, finishing 5th and 6th.  He set a personal best of 197 at JGP Slovenia.

Daniel Grassl also is fresh off his first year on the JGP circuit with two 7th place finishes.  He showed improvement between his two events, and ended with a personal best 177.  Eric Sjoberg only competed in one JGP event last season, but he set a 177 in his first time out.

Gold: Alexei Krasnozhon

2016 JGP Japan Men’s Preview

Vincent Zhou won two silver medals in his first JGP season last year to qualify for his first Final.  With Nathan Chen out of Junior Worlds he was a favorite for a medal, but finished 5th overall, despite setting new personal bests (he missed the podium by less than 1.5 points).  He is capable of landing two quads in his free skate, which would give him a huge technical advantage over the field.  Despite his young age, he has a well developed sense of artistry compared to the rest of the field.  If he can stand up on his jumps, he should have no problem walking away with a gold medal here.

Jun Hwan Cha is competing in his first JGP event after taking 7th at the World Junior Championships.  This will only be his 4th international competition.  While he finished only two spots behind Zhou at Junior Worlds, there was a 14 point gap between them and he doesn’t have the same technical firepower to make up those points.  Unless Zhou makes a mistake, it will be hard for him to overtake him for gold, but he stands a good chance of medaling in his first event.

Roman Sadovsky looked like he was going to be the next big thing when he won a bronze medal in his Junior Grand Prix debut.  Now going into his 5th season, he is a very different skater.  He’s been up and down with his results but has gained consistency recently.  He has won four medals on the JGP and qualified for his first Final last season.  He is capable of breaking the 200 point mark, but he also scored as low as 168 last season.

Emmanuel Savary last competed on the JGP circuit in 2011.  He didn’t compete again internationally until last season and took home the gold medal as a junior at Triglav Trophy.  He should be able to improve his personal best significantly and even contend for a medal here, but he didn’t get anywhere near the 200 point mark last season so he definitely has some catching up to do in the technical department.

In the hunt are Daniel Grassl who finished 7th at JGP France earlier this season and Kazuki Tomono who despite placing 15th at Junior Worlds, has a score that makes him competitive in this field.

A pair of Russians are making their debuts and hoping to contend for the podium.  Alexey Erokhov and Artem Kovalev finished 12th and 14th respectively as juniors at Russian nationals last season, and while national scores tend to be inflated, it would put them among the medal contenders in this field.

Gold: Vincent Zhou

Silver: Jun Hwan Cha

Bronze: Roman Sadovsky
