The next generation of talented young Figure Skaters takes the stage as the Juniors traditionally start the season with the ISU Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating Series 2022/23.
The ISU Junior Grand Prix Series features talented young Skaters aged 13 to 19 (21 for the male Ice Dance and Pair Skating partners) from Europe, North and South America, Asia, Oceania as well as Africa and provides them with the possibility to compete at the international level. Today’s stars such as Olympic Champions Nathan Chen (USA) and Wenjing Sui/Cong Han (CHN) all started their journey to Olympic glory once on the ISU Junior Grand Prix. Now with the start of the next Olympic cycle, there are plenty of future top Skaters to be discovered at the ISU Junior Grand Prix.
The 2022/23 season marks the 25th edition of the ISU Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating which was introduced in 1997. The Series was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the 2020/21 season.
