I found a slightly older news clip of the three teams practicing the quad: http://t.co/0alhobIv9q
There was an icenetwork article mentioning that they stopped when she hit her head, thankfully. Now that growing pains are out of the way and they're getting their throw triples consistent again, I really wonder if by 2022 or something they'll have it. I certainly hope they'll surprise me. It's weird to me to think that they're young enough to go for 2026 if they're up to it. Really praying for as little injuries as possible.
I wonder if they're upgrading their side by side jumps? They were great with them last season, no pops at all and only one fall - miraculous for a Chinese team, but they really need another triple. I saw her going through the motions of a 3sal in some video or another. Hope they have success with that if they're putting it in.
I was thinking about the sbs jumps too. A lot of people praised them for their consistency on them compared to the other chinese pairs, but they had a 2a-2a seq. and a 3t, whereas sui/han were already doing 3t-2t-2t and 3s for a few seasons now(even with the questionable success rate),, so I remained skeptical. I saw that Jin mentioned Yu was already able to do two types of triples when they paired up(the same article you mentioned, I think), so I believe they can indeed do a 3sal. At any rate, I'm mostly impressed by the technique the Chinese are teaching not just because of the height/length of the throws and twists, but how they can get the pairs to sustain that quality with such little height difference. Han is tiny for a pairs man and they have amazing pairs elements. Jin is taller/bigger, but he and Yu don't actually have much height difference either and they have lovely elements as well.
