One of those who may be competing with Olympic champion Yuzuru Hanyu when he goes for his second consecutive gold medal at the 2018 Pyeongchang Games in South Korea is American junior champion Tomoki Hiwatashi.

Hiwatashi, who was born to Japanese parents in Englewood, New Jersey, in 2000, marked his 16th birthday last week by capturing the U.S. junior crown in St. Paul, Minnesota. Hiwatashi, who was the focus of a recent feature in the Daily Herald, a suburban Chicago newspaper, boasts an impressive resume at a young age.
