Junior Figure Skating Worlds 2024: British Top Ten Finish for Third Consecutive Year!

From 28th Feb-2 March 2024, Britain was represented by a talented team of young skaters at the ISU World Junior Figure Skating Championships in Taipei.

Some strong performances were delivered, including by Edward Appleby whose fantastic 9th place finish in the men's competition makes it the third year in a row GB athletes have secured a top ten spot at the competition. Phebe Bekker and James Hernandez finished in the ice dance top ten at Junior Worlds in both 2022 and 2023, making Ed's 9th place finish Britain's third consecutive year with a top ten result!

The Junior World Championships are an incredible development opportunity for young skaters, where they can gain valuable world-stage experience and grow as both athletes and individuals. We are so proud of each and every one of our athletes for reaching this milestone and making the most of the experience; congratulations to them and their teams for all the hard work and dedication it took to get here!

Ed Appleby

A spectacular short programme performance secured Ed, the current men's British Champion, a personal best score and 6th place going into the free skate.

His mature free skate performance saw him finish in 9th overall, the first top ten finish GB has had in the men's category at Junior Worlds in over 20 years!

Ashlie Slatter & Atl Ongay-Perez

It's been a brilliant season for Ashlie and Atl, securing fourth-place finishes at two Junior Grand Prix before delivering a stunning performance at the Youth Olympic Winter Games that saw them win bronze!

At Junior Worlds, their high-energy rhythm dance qualified them for the free dance, where they secured their overall position of 13th.

Lucy Hay & Kyle McLeod

Lucy and Kyle are the current British Junior Pairs Champions.

Though their short programme performance didn't quite meet their expectations, falling just one place short of qualifying for the free programme, it has still been a season of massive progress and growth for the pair.

The current British Junior Women's Champion, Alexa has showcased her talents at multiple international events this season, including two Junior Grand Prix.

This season Alexa has been focusing on long-term development and learning harder technical elements. These didn't quite go as planned at Junior Worlds, but the maturity of her performance and commitment to the technically stronger program means there was plenty to be positive about!

In just their second season as an ice dance couple, Molly and Alessio competed at two Junior Grand Prix, though an injury sadly saw them have to withdraw from the season's British Championships.

Their 44.19 point rhythm dance landed them 26th place at Junior Worlds, an exciting start for this relatively new skating pair!
