    Li Zijun

    This is a thread for Li Zijun (李子君) of China.

    Her name can be pronounced as Ztze - Juen two separate word in Chinese Mandarin, and she shares the surname Li as the legendary Bruce Lee Hope she will become the next big star for China, as well... they could really do with one!

    ZiJun put on a life time best at the recent NHK 2012 and brought best results for Chinese Ladies for over a decade at age 15 breaking the key 170 barrier with a total score of 174.11.

    She had the 2nd highest TES score at her FS with the biggest jump combination 3F+3T of the day where she received good GOEs and 10.60
    She ranked 2nd in TES for her SP as well where she had a 3T3T combo, 2nd highest combo only to Akiko's 3T3T.

    Her choreographers includes
    - Karen Kwan
    - 2011/2012 SP Jiang Hailan, LP David Wilson.
    - Current season Jiang Hailan SP "Dark eyes", Lori Nichol LP "Sleeping Beauty".

    Her favourite skater is
    - Yuna Kim

    Obviously she is still very young, and physically she is not quite there yet (power, speed, strength etc) but there's a quiet sweetness and serenity about her skating that I really like and is a lovely foundation to build upon. With more life experience her expressions will improve (just like the Russian super babies). She along with BingWa and KeXing are the Chinese skating future for the ladies. Hope they will do well.

    Thanks for the information, os168!
    I really like Li Zijun. Her jumps look great, she's very pretty and lovely on the ice
    She reminds me of 16-year-old young Yuna who was very pure, endearing, and fragile. I think she has a lot of potential. Hope she can be on the podium soon.

    The information of her choreographer is out of date. Karen Kwan was her choreographer in season 2008-2011.
    In 2011/2012 her SP was choreographed by Chinese choreographer Jiang Hailan and LP by David Wilson.
    In this season, Jiang Hailan choreographed her SP "Dark eyes" and Lori Nichol choreographed her LP "Sleeping Beauty".

    No wonder her LP choreography seems so generic. I think Karen Kwan was a better choreographer for her. Loved the program she did to the "Up" soundtrack.

    Zijun posted these today (New Year Day) at her Instagram of her practice. She did not take part at recent Chinese Nationals due to still recuperating with series of illness and probably growth spurt.

    May be it is a good way to give herself good morale boosting for 2014, but as a fan I am obviously very concerned about her lack of training issues most of this season. Stamina etc. Does she even have a new program? She did not respond to question if she will take part at Sochi. Wish her luck!

    A video of FS parctice (devided into tree parts)was posted on weibo this afternoon. Zijun landed all the jums(3F3T, 2A3T,3Lz,3S2lo2lo,3F,3lo,2A) and looked faster than ever.

    And Zijun said: "This video is sent to all people who care about me. I want to tell you, though in sick, I did not give up, has been working hard in silence!"

    Thank you for the videos! Her speed looks really improved and it's nice to see the jumps there. I enjoyed her immensely at Worlds last year and hope she can surprise us with another perfect performance in Sochi.
