The Skating Lesson - Pairs Recap
Worth a listen to here.
In particular, here Jenny's story about Pang/Tong starting at 16:45 -I am shocked that Tong would take food away from Pang if she missed jumps. She needs to get the hell away from him!
I think there could be a lot of overreaction to seeing this, to be fair. Every athletes has a diet or diets. It is sad that for pairs the women have a lot more pressure to be a certain size/height, but that is the reality. Having said that, Pang is particularly skinny and always has been, and it wouldn't hurt for her to gain some more muscle, at least. I'm also not sure why they continue to skate. Could be outside pressure, could be their one last go at Olympics, but hopefully a lot of these problems go away once they retire. Most athletes regain a normal figure once they retire, anyway.
