This year the Junior categories have been introduced for the first time and created an interesting new balance in the competitions. Both in the Junior and Senior Ladies, the Long Programme confirmed the partial ranking of the Short Programme. Big party for the Motley brothers (USA), both on the highest step of the podium in their category: Natalie confirmed the 2014 Gold in Reus, after the Silver Medal of the past year in Cali.
