Alex Krasnozhon gets another chance at the World Junior Championships

At the 2018 World Junior Championships, Alex Krasnozhon was in the lead after the short program, poised to take the title. Then disaster struck on the first jump of his free skate: He injured his ankle and withdrew from the competition.

After months of rehab on his ankle and a solid season on the senior level—including a fifth place finish at the 2019 U.S. Championships—Krasnozhon returns to Junior Worlds with a fresh perspective, and goals of putting a quad back into his long program. He says they will assess whether to include the quad after the short program. This will be his last competition at the junior level, and he says that he is looking forward to competing at Junior Worlds one more time.

Before leaving for the competition in Zagreb, Croatia, Krasnozhon chatted with Figure Skaters Online for a brief question and answer session.
