Oona Brown & Gage Brown are the World Junior Dance Champions and Lindsay Thorngren is the World Junior Bronze Women’s Medalist. Team USA brought home three medals, including two golds, at the ISU World Junior Figure Skating Championships 2022 in Tallinn, Estonia and SCNY members won two of those medals! 

In the ice dance competition, the Browns became world champions, leading an American contingent which saw all three U.S. teams finish in the top seven. After setting a personal best in the rhythm dance on Friday, the Browns extended their lead, setting new personal bests in the free dance and total score, shattering their previous personal best by more than 15 points with a combined 170.25. Skating to “Exogenesis: Symphony, Part 1: Overture” and “I Belong to You (+Mon coeur s’ouvre a ta voix)” by Muse, the three-time U.S. junior medalists won the free dance with 103.27 points.

Lindsay Thorngren set international personal bests in both her free skate and total score.Performing to music from Queen’s Gambit arranged by Cédric Tours, the 2020 U.S. junior champion nearly hit 200 points with 199.42, including 133.28 in her free skate, receiving a positive grade of execution on every element and earning all Level 4s.
