    Obviously this pair are technically very good but they are doing absolutely nothing for me. The only memorable thing so far is that they have the farthest apart side by side spins I've seen in recent history.

    Cheng PENG / Hao ZHANG (CHN)

    Music: Yellow River Concerto

    4Tw - solid, good height
    3T+2T - she doubles 3T
    3S - he doubles
    FCCoSp - bit far apart, unison off
    PCoSp
    3LoTh - good distance, but stepout
    ChSq
    3STh - nice
    Li - star, split
    FiDs
    Li - lasso, into star
    Li - lasso, into star, into carry

    Some smaller mistakes, but overall solid

    Score: 58.98+58.11 = 117.09,182.18, in 2nd out of 6

    Second that. They could do a good job on it.

    Seriously though, part of me does wonder if they have another young man they're working with behind the scenes for when Zhang has to retire and she still wants to go for another quad or two...

    Agreed. When she looked a little downcast after they ended, he patted her like a father would pat his daughter.

    Nothing for me either other than make me feel like I'm watching Father-Daughter Skate Night or Beauty and the Beast on Ice.

    Tulosai, +2 GOE for all the snarking. :D

    Peng/Zhang have impressive elements and improved basics but that program fell really flat. Stacking spins at start and lifts at end for bonus points without any purpose or connection to the music was bad choreography.

    Well, the age difference does not bother as much as the height difference of some pair, such as DR.

    Zhang wants to skate for another quad, at least.

    Now this pair is adorable, but I feel like I'm watching a 10 year old and 12 year old skate together. are they super super short??

    Is this being filmed by a special process or with a different camera? It looks different that any competition I've watched this season. In some ways an improvement and others not.

    I'd say the aspect ratio is a bit off?

    Oh dear, she looks like she did not like that last lift at all!
