is Dan Zhang retiring? maybe she could skate singles since she's a good jumper? China doesn't have that many good ladies singles skaters, besides Kexin Zhang and Bingwa Geng is decent too.

Peng seems to have good SBS jumps of her own based on the youtube videos I've seen. No 2axel-3toe, but solid 3toe and a 2axel are a good building block.

hm, would be sorry for them.
i really like the skating of dan zhang; would be hard to find a girl with 3sal and 2a3toe, think itīs almost impossible :D

I wouldn't worry about it, the Zhangs didn't hit that combo enough times to make it worth it anyway ;)

Yeah I would like to see her try singles. She was an incredibly boring pairs skater anyway, and she brought him down, especialy artistically. She could choose some stony serious music to skate to, it would suit her non expression as she skates, and she could actually try and make it work if on her own. I think she could do a number of triples training for singles, she seemed to be an excellent jumper.

I hope she does singles, even if only for a year.

And I'm calling bullshit on her growing at age "24."

They hit it when it counted in 2006.

They've been competing internationally since 1999, including JGP medals in 1999.

You can go watch old youtube videos to check what she looked like then.

How old do you think she is now? Do you think she was eight or ten back in 1999?!

Obviously she's bit of an anomaly to be still growing in height into her 20's, though athletes in general have later growth spurts than non-athletes. Is this harder to believe than that she was winning JGP's at 10 (though looked 13-14)? I guess it's up to you what you want to believe in...

I didn't say they couldn't do one...that element was not there most consistent.

I'm glad I'm not the only one thinking that. :shuffle:

Oh this would be so disappointing. They worked so hard to come back from injuries and he still seemed troubled by his shoulder as well. I have always enjoyed their power.

It's rumored that multiple tryouts happened
and TPTB pretty much decided on Peng Cheng...

How tall is Peng Cheng? She has all the goodies to be successfull with him, but she needs dance classes so bad. She does not finish her moves.
