    Yu Xiaoyu & Jin Yang

    Pair skaters Yu Xiaoyu (Chinese: 于小雨; pinyin: Yú Xiǎoyǔ) and Jin Yang (simplified Chinese: 金杨; traditional Chinese: 金楊; pinyin: Jīn Yáng) represent China. Yu was born on Jan 2, 1996, while Jin was born on May 16, 1994. Both skaters were born in Harbin, China.

    The future of Chinese Pairs, continuing the 2000's new Chinese tradition!

    They remind me of Pang / Tong: good elements, but more importantly, they have room for huge Component marks improvement.

    Yu & Jin will be one of the ones to watch for in 2018 and 2022 Olympics, barring disaster and major injuries

    They are the 2016 Four Continents bronze medalists and the 2015 World Junior Champions.

    "Note: Due to a wrong entry the pair - Xiaoyu Yu / Yang Jin - from China, placed originally 8th in the final result, had to be deleted. In the corrected versions of each result of segment and Final each of the lower placed couples will move up accordingly. Due to the deletion of the pair Xiaoyu Yu / Yang Jin from China, which was originally qualified for the final Free Skating, only 15 pairs will belisted for the final result as having skated the Free Program.

    China had only qualified two teams to 2010 World Junior Championships but sent three. The mistake was not discovered until after the competition was finished.

    If Yu & Jin's scores had counted, they would have been:

    Thank you for starting this thread. They were, for me, the most lyrical and musical pair at COC. Too bad about that one disastrous lift it was frightening! But looking forward to seeing them in the future. And yes: 2018 and 2022 (the latter more likely, so they grow artistically).

    I love them! Really like their programs, esp. their lp. Yu has lovely lines and Jin is fantastic overall. I agree, they do have a lot of room for improvement.

    Congratulations to Yu/Jin for winning their second Junior Worlds title! Throughout the season, I wasn't sure if I wanted to declare myself a full-on fan, mainly because I didn't know if I'd be able to hold so many wonderful Chinese pairs in my heart. But they've really won me over. They have a classic elegance, and are reminiscent of Pang/Tong.

    Reposting from the Jr. Worlds Pairs Free thread, interview with Yu/Jin after their win:

    - Their future plans: Going to WC in Shanghai to study the strength of older competitors, to improve on their weaknesses
    - Next season: they will do more all elements more perfectly
    - They will stay a few more days in Estonia. What they want to see: Last time, they saw big ship, and want to see it again since they didn't get enough of a look the first time. They will cheer on the other competitors, both Chinese and foreign.

    Yang Jin comes across as articulate and thoughtful, and gives detailed answers.

    I especially love love Yu/Jin's LP, such an intimate program. As Kurt Browning said in previous CBC commentary "as if there is a do not disturb sign".
    I have never seen a program has this kinda feel that is for a junior pair(fresh, green, young, childhood sweetheart, pure, quiet, understanding, soulmate, ...). Amazing! David Wilson is a master of master of choreo and music editing

    I translated while their winners' interview was streaming on CBC. I don't know if someone recorded it... Perhaps you can try asking around the Pairs Free/Videos & Results thread.
