    I am SO happy to hear this. I think they will really be the ones to beat with Pang/Tong and Shen/Zhao both gone. I can't wait to see more beautiful programs from these two.

    Yay!!!!! But I thought Pang and Tong were back next season.. unless you're just referring to subsequent seasons, expecting them to retire after this one..

    Hopefully, they can hold up for another 4 years of work. They are the best bravura team today and it is nice having them around. We have enough of the lovey/dovey teams.

    I second that.

    Before their Worlds freeskate I thought P/T had the best freeskate program of the season, but Worlds was like a S/S we hadn't seen all season. It was beautiful and skated so joyfully. I would have given them the freeskate. Good luck to S/S!

    I've always found them so elegant. I also enjoy Ingo Steuer's work with them. He's classy and innovative. All in all, it's great news to hear that they're continuing.

    That is good news. Of all the pairs, including the World and Olympic champions, I enjoyed this teams long program the best at the 2010 games here in Vancouver. They skated it their best at the Olympics. It was a joy to watch and I still get moved to tears when I watch it.

    Look forward to another great program from this team....

    I really like them! Their LP last season was lovely- Similar to their coach's style, but IMO more personality and elegance.
