Aren't Z/Z - Zhang/Zhang?
Yes, thank you. It's Freudian. My least favourite Chinese team. I like to forget they exist.
My favorite pairs team is Sui and Han. Two Chinese kids performing as American cowboys? That's hilarious. They should get a gold medal just for that. I love watching those two. They do such awesome tricks. The girl is absolutely fearless and so bendy. I wonder why they didn't medal at Worlds. Probably because the judges have a fetish for angsty, operatic, dramatic, romance programs. ZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
They finally finished their career together. I'm not surprised since other American couples are becoming more consistent at jump elements.
I read it after I posted, but I disagree. First off, I don't mind the pumping stroking that Sui, Kanako Murakami, and early Ashley Wagner do. It just doesn't bother me. For people that it does bother, Besides, lots of skaters lack power in their stroking and it's fixable.
Secondly, which I think is more important, Sui and Han are the only pairs I can watch without nodding off or shrugging my shoulders at. Pang and Tong's Turandot? Meh. Shen and Zhao doing yet another classical music rendition? Seen it. Zhang and Zhang are serious and in love. I get it. The epitome of pairs, that Russian G-number1 and G-number2, only did quietly angsty, serious, lovey-dovey programs that all looked the same. I'm sure their stoking skills and etc are better, but what's the point if their programs are boring to watch? Does anyone want to take a second look at any of Patrick Chan's Take Five variations?
I take back my statement that only Sui and Han are entertaining. At last year's worlds, the German pair's Pink Panther was fun.
