But if he can get it consistent, why not. His 3axel and quad were already quite consistent last season so perhaps it's time to step it up if he can manage it. :kickass:

You mean
SP. 4s 4t3t 3a
Lp 3a2t. 3a. 4t3t 4t 4s. ....
Something like that?:eek:

More reasonably something like"

SP - 4t-3t, 3a, 3lz

FS - 4t, 4s, 3a-3t....3a in the second half. Think Fernandez' or Brezina's layouts.

Now I can't find any persuasive reason for Han Yan to stay in Junior.
I hope these Vids convince Chinese Federation to change their mind.

Actually they went to the training camp to watch him practice,and even applauded when he landed those big jumps.The boy is gonna win more golds for them.That's what the Fed all cares about;) So I don't think they will change their mind whatsoever:blah:

I think that the whole thing with having to prove your worth and having to be seen as good enough is a cultural thing to do with 'saving face' isn't it?

It drives me up the wall because there are so many skaters training and competing in China who never get an opportunity to compete internationally. :(

Kevin Reynolds is the first and only skater to do that.

Han Yan needs to keep himself away from random colds / fevers before competitions... Not sure if it's related to growth or stamina.

Second this. Yan was in nine competitions this past season, and he had high fevers for at least three of the events...

^^ Wow, Jeff is also thriving this season. I'm so looking forward to see how he will bring out artistic side of Nan Song's.

It seems a real inflection point in the success of Chinese skaters, comes when the skaters expand their access to more diverse choreographic influences. Shen and Xao really blossomed when they first started working with LeAnn Miller. I will be very interested in the work that Nan Song accomplishes with Jeff Buttle. I would guess that Buttle's creativity and temperment will provide very important levels of insight, that will help Nan Song take the next steps in his overall skating.

Except for the almighty Chen Lu, I don't believe most Chinese skaters understand tempo. They could mostly interpret mood and hit nuances, but few could skate to the tempo / rythym of the music.

Please, let Jeff help them.

Considering this was where Jeff failed himself (great at mood/nuances, bad at timing), I have my doubts. :D

But yeah nothing can be worse than the crap choreo Song has this season. :scream:

I am disappointed that Han Yan wasn't seen as SENIOR ENOUGH by the Chinese Fed yet to be sent to a good choreographer. Given his skating style is quite soft and fluid, Buttle could work quite well for him, probably.
