2014-2015 Junior Grand Prix Season Begins
Believe it or not, the 2014-2015 season is about to get started! The main event (the senior GP) is still several weeks away, but we've got the Junior Grand Prix to hold us over until then.
The first of the seven events, JGP Courchevel, kicks off next week in France (August 20-24). Junior world bronze medalist Evgenia Medvedeva (RUS) will headline the opener along with Amber Glenn (USA) and Da Bin Choi (KOR).
I'll do my best to have another perfect season of posting and updating here at Naked Ice. I managed to cover all of the events last season (both junior and senior) and plan on doing that again...if time permits. Check back soon!
