Okay..Han Yan, Zijun, P/Z, S/H(of course), Y/J and W/L just WD from Chinese Nationals? :scratch2: Uh.....is this normal? :shocked:

Haha yeah, this is pretty normal for Chinese Nationals. A few years ago when I first started following Team China I was also confused when I saw all the withdrawls. I guess Chinese Nationals just isn't as big of a competition compared to Japanese, Russian, or US Nationals.

The written version of the video report

  新浪体育讯  近日,国家体育总局冬季运动管理中心公布了最新一期花样滑冰国家队名单,运动员方面基本没有大的变化,但是在教练组方面变动不小。

  一是前双人滑世界冠军庞清将出任单人滑教练,带领闫涵和李子君去美国训练。另外,2002年盐湖城冬奥会双人滑冠军、加拿大人戴维-佩特蒂尔(男)将于七月初到任,出任双人滑的训练工作,这也是中国双人滑首次引进外籍教练。

  本届中国花滑队教练组名单如下:赵宏博、许兆晓、李明珠(外教)、于丽杰、韩冰、张欣、黄桂玉、奚鸿雁、高海军、庞清、关金林、戴维-佩特蒂尔(外教)。

此前执教女单的名教头李明珠回归值得注意,而闫涵的教练贾曙光并没有出现在名单中。

Recently, the National Winter Sports announced the newest list of the National Figure Skating Team members. Basically there is little change with the athletes but quite some changes on the coaches' side.

One of them is the engagement of former Pairs World Champion Pang Qing as a Singles coach, who will lead Yan Han and Li Zijun to train in the US. Another is that David Pelletier, Pairs Champion from the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics, will be coaching Pairs beginning in early July. This is the first time the Chinese Pairs skating has brought in a foreign coach.

The current list of the Team China Figure Skating coaches is as follows: Zhao Hongbo, Xu Zhaoxiao, Li Mingzhu (foreign coach), Yu Lijie, Han Bin, Zhang Xin, Huang Guiyiu, Xi Hongyan, Gao Haijun, Pang Qing, Guan Jinlin, David Pelletier (foreign coach).

Worth noting is the return of well known coach Li Mingzhu. And Han Yan's coach Jia Shuguang does not appear on the list.

Han lasted 13 min 40 sec in the plank position, very impressive. Others were as exhausted as he was.

Chinese police officer Mao Weidong sets plank world record

An average Joe might be able to hold the position for up to a minute, while a trained gym bunny would be proud of making it to three minutes. So spare a thought for the physical strength and mental resilience of Mao Weidong, who last week set a new world record by holding the plank position for a whopping four hours and 26 minutes.

I was getting all misty eyed just watching Cong skate by himself, and then I was really losing it when he brought her out on the ice! I have secretly been hoping they would be ready to come to Skate America, but I think Wenjing's recuperation is going to take a little longer than I thought. Wish them all the best!...That Tango Amore music is very catchy. Jin really seems to be developing a lot more personality on the ice!

An hour long video with Team China: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBdvuvI46S4 It includes some skates, like Sui/Han, Wang/Wang (I think) or Zijun and lots of other fluff. Zijun, Sui and Han Yan seem very friendly with each other :luv17: Of course I don't understand anything, but one can still watch ;) If anyone knowing Chinese can say, if there's anything interresting, please do :)
