They will appear in a inter-club competition next month but we really don't know anything. They were 4th in 17WC so they should be able to get two spots according to the comeback rule.

They don't have any spots currently. They could get the host TBD spot, but I think maybe they weren't submitted or they would already have at least 1 spot.

Does anyone know anything about the Chinese ladies competing this season on the senior GP? Are they promising skaters? Do they have a chance at the top 5?

Hongyi Chen has a PB of 165 points, so a top5 at Cup of Russia is unlikely, but not impossible if she improved during the summer. At Cup of China it will be more complicated.
Yi Zhu's PB (junior) is 135 points... But she was injured most of the season.

Xiangyi's fan club posted a video of Emily last year and said she might be representing China. In that video the announcer said she represents Richmond Figure Skating Club. So she is the girl ranked #6 in US JR nationals.
FWIW. Richmond Emily Zhang is skating this weekend at the Chesapeake Open. Other skaters are listed as representing different federdations so I am now questioning if this is the Emily representing is Team China.

Maybe the NY Emily Zhang?

Well, let's wait until next month. She will be in the inter-club competition so we will get videos. The federation says there will be live coverage online so we can have some good videos.

Is An Xiangyi going to be at the interclub competition too?

Yes. All the promising girls except Hongyi Chen will appear in the first competition. The first and fifth competitions are the qualification for the next national games so everybody will be there. In fact, the first competition has over 450 contenders (including elite and amateur skaters) so they have to give it another day to finish the competition.

Hongyi injured herself at the end of April so she need time to recover. She will be at the fifth competition.

Another Orser camp this week and yet again Boyang not in sight again. I don't why they are wasting so much money flying in his team along with his skaters only to work on a bunch of random kids where most of them probably haven't even got their double jumps. Why is he not attending these classes? Such a waste of money

He was in the photo that Jason posted with Orser's athletes on the Great Wall.

Yeah but he was not present in the group pics posted by one of TCC skaters during the camp. https://www.instagram.com/p/BzP6CPSpYzf/Also he has never been in any of the pictures of the camp from previous weeks not even in the official photos from photographers. Unless he is going into great lengths in avoiding being in the photos it is likely he did not attend the camp

The inter-club competition has a lot of different groups even for amateur skaters. There's a group called family on-ice drama.

Little Shen Xue is about 5 years old and she will be in 幼儿低龄组 in amateur section which might be similar to Juvenile group. she competed in the same event last year. The program had no technical component.
Lu Chen's daughter is called Anastasia Petrova and she will be in the 少儿高龄组 in elite section which is similar to Advanced Intermediate A or Advanced Intermediate A. She is 10 now and she can do all the doubles except 2A.

Can someone please fill me in? What is this interclub competition and who will be there?

It's a series of competition organized by CSF. In China, a lot of skater used to skate for national or provincial sports teams but nowadays many young skaters skate for clubs. The competition is aimed to give more chance to young skaters. Also amateur skaters also have their stages so more people will get to know and participate in figure skating.

According to the entry list, all the promising skaters will be there except Sui/Han and Peng/Jin. Even Boyang and Han Yan will be there so that's pretty exciting.

Oh, they are really going for it. Kudos to them trying to push themselves on the sbs jumps as well. Hope she stays injury-free, obviously.

Here are some videos of little Shen Xue when she participated in the club league last year. I think Zhao Hongbo said that at that time, she had only 6 months of figure skating lessons.

Chen Lu has a lot of videos on her instagram about Anastasia. Here's a video where she was in the Asian Junior Open in Beijing

Why isn’t former US skater Beverly Zhu (sp?) competing on the GP this season? Is she not old enough? Sorry, I’m just anxious for China to have some top ladies. This year doesn’t look too good.

I think she may actually be invited to Cup of China, though I don't know what she has done to earn it yet so if it's not her, I would not be surprised either. There is a Yi Zhu on the list, and I remember reading that Beverly was using a Chinese version of her name at some point.

Her jumps are getting bigger and the skating skills are really improving.
She is also practicing 3A in her training but lacking the last 90 degrees.

Zhu Yi's SP: https://weibo.com/6361703010/HDkNkDo5P?type=comment
3Lo was beautiful!! Just hope she can put 3Lo3T or 3F3T in her program to up the technical part.
