    Yan Liu - the new Lu Chen?

    love this skater do you have an opinion on her or do you think she is just meh? i think she has an elegance and refinement , it is in just the potential stage right now, but it is there. Is she the new Lu Chen? yes i do think so!

    I love her too. But she is too old to be another Lu Chen. No chance to be on top, but I do expect her to win some medal in the GP event.

    Well, she doesn't have seem to have a genuine smile like Lu Chen's, and from what I've seen on TV she is quite fragile and lovely but a bit unpolished and slow at the same time. But all in all, I'm expecting her to do very well in the GP this season. Her two assignments (Cup of China & Cup of Russia) definitely have weaker fields, so I believe it is her chance to win - or lose.

    I adore her. She said that Lu Chen is her idol. However, so far, her programs have been very similar, while Lu Chen could jazz it up. Yan Liu would have to be more versatile before she reached Lu Chen's level, in my opinion. But she has the jumping ability and basic skills to get there.

    Is this the skater that collapsed/fainted on the ice last year out of sheer exhaustion? I really liked her, not sure if she's Lu Chen -like, but she does have a wonderful quality about her.

    Yes, but it was a combination of illness and exhaustion as she had one of the hell trips from Skate Canada to Cup of China. A number of skaters were hurt by the draconian flight arrangements and delays.
