Biographical notes:

Ting started skating at age 7 because her parents wanted her to stay cool and get exercise during the summer. She participated in the Learn to Skate USA program and was coached by Chris Conte for three years. Her favorite element is the double axel. Her parents, Lily and Larry, are restaurant owners and a realtor. She enjoys relaxing with her brother, Hao, and hanging out with her friends when not skating, in addition to photography, biking, eating, and Pinteresting. Ting also volunteers for the Vicky Almonds campaign with the Baltimore County Executive.

I saw a rumor that she was switching from Vincent to Raf... does anyone know if this is true and have confirmation?

Can’t help but wonder if this showing has something to do with her current coaching situation. We know Vincent and her split but we have gotten no news as to who she’s with now. Is she coachless currently? Bc that certainly would explain this showing. These jumps come so easily to her, I mean heck, we saw 3-3-3-3-3’s on Vincent’s Instagram from her before junior worlds. At junior worlds she looked like she just couldn’t miss a jump. (The fluke fall aside lol) I realize it’s early in the season but something must be wrong to go from that to this. Hope she figures out a coaching situation and has a better showing next time. We believe in you ting!!!

well it should have been at least 60...apparently the judges really dont like her. besides the error on the combo she was beautiful. SO elegant. lowballed is an understatement...

The score is really disappointing.. but at least she can still fight for the 3rd place..
