Countdown to US Figure Skating Championships: 1 Day!

Yasmin Siraj (SC of Boston)

  • 2009 US Novice Nationals 5th
  • 2010 US Junior Nationals 2nd
  • 2010 Junior Grand Prix France 2nd
  • 2010 Junior Grand Prix Great Britain 2nd
  • 2010 Junior Grand Prix Final 7th

At only 14, Yasmin is going to be one of the babies of the 2011 Senior Ladies event, but she is definitely worthy of competing among our country's best. Her top short program scores this season are competitive with Alissa Czisny and Rachael Flatt as are her free skate and total scores. Internationally, she has outscored Agnes Zawadzki this season, the only person who beat her last year at Nationals in the junior ladies event. But, along with Kristiene Gong and Christina Gao, she had a meltdown at the Junior Grand Prix Final, so we'll see how she holds up in her next high pressure situation in Greensboro. Either way, she has nothing to lose and will most likely make the Junior World team.
