CONGRATULATIONS TO SHOTARO! 2013 SP WORLD JUNIOR FIGURE SKATING CHAMPS VIDEO LINK INCLUDED.


JWC 2013 Shotaro OMORI SP by arealy_ru

Today the men’s SP was held at the 2013 World Junior Figure Skating Championships in Milan, Italy. Shotaro Omoro threw down the gauntlet in this event by skating a beautiful short program, including a fantastic triple axel, great spins, excellent footwork and great choreography. After today’s SP, Shotaro is currently in second place. The US men currently stand in first, second and third place after the short program.

Fantastic job Shotaro! All your hard work and effort is paying off. We’re all sending you our best wishes for another great skate in your long program!

GO SHO!!!!
