but there's also tech, Dai is great but i don't think he can nail it in such short time, not at the level of more experienced teams lime Komatsubara Koleto, also 6 points gap in ice dance is hugeTBH I wondered...because Dai is so popular and so loved. I was thinking this morning I've never heard anyone say a negative thing about him! Which seems so unusual to me and for skaters in general!
shame, Ruizhong (rweijon right?) sounds amazing,I find the Oliver Zhang/Cho Eichu situation really interesting, he's Canadian although with Chinese parents so in theory he's supposed to go the Tim Koleto route and have Oliver Zhang written in katakana. But they got his Chinese name (Zhang Ruizhong in Mandarin) and read the Chinese characters in the Japanese way (Cho Eichu)
