Local Skater In Second At Junior Grand Prix

Langley High's Armin Mahbanoozadeh, 17, stood in second place Thursday with 67.05 points after the short program of the International Skating Union's Junior Grand Prix Final in Goyang City, South Korea. Mahbanoozadeh, who put forth a nearly mistake-free performance, trails only France's Florent Amodio, who had 68.20, entering the deciding long program.

"I'm really happy," said Mahbanoozadeh, who lives in Alexandria and trains in Reston with the Washington Figure Skating Club. "It's a new personal best and I skated how I've been training."

Silver Spring's Kristine Musademba, 16, will compete in the ladies event at the junior grand prix final.
