I'm glad Guan Yuhang is going to 4CC. I really enjoyed his skate at CoC and I think has a lot of potential. Hope Han Yan is doing well health wise since it's a good chance for him and Zijun to get the momentum going before WC's. Wishing Team China all the best!
Sui/Han are obviously practicing it. According to the CBC crew during the 2014 Olympics, Peng/Zhang are practicing it as well (though take this with a grain of salt, since Irving/Lane/Browning don't always get their facts right). I don't know if we'll see the quad throws this season... maybe S/H could test theirs out at 4CC.
gorgeous gorgeous photo of P/T from lovely Korean Fans. must save!
And the last one
While he's not my favourite skater, I have such mad, mad respect for what Boyang did out there today. Three quads, a triple axel, two 3-3s, and pretty much everything done cleanly. He won the free, beating the eventual Junior World champion by almost 10 points in the segment. While the rest of the favourites made errors like a typical nervy men's figure skating event, Boyang brought the most difficult content of them all and was the only one who delivered everything he promised.
If this competition had happened several months ago, and he hadn't lost a lot of momentum due to inconsistency... Well, I think the outcome might've been different.
He still needs to work on the non-jumping side of things, but he's improved a lot since the start of the season. I was one of the harshest critics of his programs. But his LP actually isn't that bad, when he delivers all the tech content and ditches the green patchwork monstrosity. And there was a nice Ina Bauer at one point.
I hope Boyang stays healthy, and can soon put the whole package together. I'm really starting to root for him, and if he can put more conviction into his movements, work on the spins, ect. he will really go places.
