Alysa Liu, the 13-year-old who became the youngest U.S. women’s figure skating champion in January, will compete on the ISU Junior Grand Prix for the first time from Aug. 29-31 in Lake Placid, N.Y.

Liu, who landed three triple Axels between two programs at nationals, will not meet the age minimum for senior international competitions until the 2022 Olympic season. But she can continue to compete at senior nationals.

Russians dominated the Junior Grand Prix the last two seasons, but the top three from 2018 are all entered in Senior Grand Prix events this season.

The Senior Grand Prix begins with Skate America from Oct. 18-20.
