August/September 2007Carrying the torch
At the Junior Grand Prix Final in Sofia, Bulgaria, the U.S. recorded the first sweep of all four gold medals since the series began in 1997. Two months later, it was the U.S. again atop the medal stand with three gold medals at the World Junior Championships in Oberstdorf, Germany.
Only two falls in ice dancing prevented the U.S. from likely sweeping all four gold medals.
Now, with the 2007-08 campaign about to commence, those World Junior champions are anxious to test the waters against the top senior-level competition on the planet.
Read all about 2007 World Junior champions Stephen Carriere, Caroline Zhang, and Keauna McLaughlin and Rockne Brubaker in the August/September issue of SKATING.
