    Something you don't see often: 2 US teams at the top of any intermediate leader board

    Seen it already. I love Sui/Han. They're very good pairs skaters, and two of the best performers in competitive skating right now. But the Chinese pairs program has come a long way down from Shen/Zhao, Pang/Tong and the Zhangs. It would have to for a team like Zhang and Wang to be bronze medalists at Chinese nationals.

    And it's not that bad a score.

    That said, I'm not watching until I know nothing bad happens (injury wise).

    The Chinese dont even have a pair capable of medalling at the World level anymore. The Zhangs are no longer a real threat, and Sui & Han have a long way to go still. Pang & Tong are getting old and dont seem to be competing much anymore.

    Thanks, icemusings, I'm going to be late. :( But I want, I MUST watch the end of this, lol. Going to make some calls to my lovelies to tell them I will be a tad late, but will make up for it with a trip to Seattle's oldest toystore downtown, as well as a movie tomorrow.

    Pairs power is back with Russia in full force. Russia has more podium-worthy pairs teams than they know what to do with.

    Nadine, Pairs girls are of tiny bodies, biggest guts. Pairs guy are strong physically to be good chick hoisters but also need mental strength to deal with guilt and trauma of mishaps.
    Best description of pairs skaters ever, both in terms of seriousness and in terms of humor. I don't know which I like better: of tiny bodies, biggest guts (totally true), or chick hoisters! (Not demeaning at all when said by someone who loves skating and skaters as much as you do.) I actually never thought about that last idea of yours, but it's true that guys have to be able to withstand the guilt and trauma of mishaps. They can't second-guess themselves, or they'd never be able to lift, carry, and throw their lady. (Who is often their girlfriend or wife.)

    since you are discussing Chinese pairs.... Zhang(man) has an injury, right? And Pant/Tong, were they only planning worlds this year (somehow, I thought they would come to 4cc)...thanks in advance if you know the answer.

    I knew Pang/Tong weren't doing anything but Worlds.. I think I did hear about the injury to Hao Zhang at one point but I think it slipped my mind.

    didn't Pang/Tong retired ? so they are making a comeback for 2012 Worlds, how old are they now ?
    It'll be tough for them to get Bronze again, they haven't competed internationally last season and will have to fight the spot again with K/S

    Sui/Han are the best Chinese Pairs atm, they will age out at Junior Worlds this season.
