Well, the Chinese fed has done that before. Huang & Zheng used to be with Linichuk.
Yes, last season Krylova and Camerlengo did their programs but before that they used to work with Linichuk.

This is going to be a very interesting battle between B/S and P/B for gold and the winner should have their chances of olympic bronze strenghtened. From the first two GPs I think that C/L and W/P have been marked very generously, interesting to see how the judges score both couples here.
Go Aldredige and Eaton (one always hope a new team have a successful first outing--if only to get them off on the right uhm skate!).
Huang/Zheng have withdrawn.
sorry for them. Is it too late for a replacement? pod opportunity for young teams.

Quickstep: Swing With Me by Jessica Simpson (Started with the finnstep)
Foxtrot: He's A Tramp (not Trump )
He spun in place for part of his second twizzle, may be a downlevel
