Countdown to US Figure Skating Championships: 3 Days!

Richard Dornbush (All Year FSC)

  • 2008 US Jr. Nationals 4th
  • 2008 Jr. Grand Prix Final Bronze Medalist
  • 2010 US Nationals 11th
  • 2010 US Jr. Grand Prix Final Champion

I have yet to see any of Richard's programs this season, but I hear his Sherlock Holmes free skate is quite a sight to see and I will look forward to seeing it in Greensboro. What I can tell by looking at his scores is that he has had a rollercoaster of a season. His score of 52.74 at the Junior Grand Prix of Austria was the lowest international short  program score for a Senior US Man this entire season, but his 70.75 at the Junior Grand Prix Final was just below what Brandon Mroz scored at Trophee Eric Bompard. His 109.16 free skate at the JGP of Austria was third from the bottom this season but his 148.81 was the second highest free skate score posted internationally by a US man all season. In terms of total scores, his 219.56 from the Junior Grand Prix Final places him second to only Adam Rippon but his total score from the JGP of Austria is the lowest by a US man this entire season. Let's hope that "good Richard" shows up in Greensboro, because that Richard can seriously contend for the podium.
