    It's official :(: Wenjing SUI / Cong HAN were crossed off from NHK Trophy on the ISU site in today's update (Oct. 19) and they have been replaced by Wenting WANG / Yan ZHANG at Cup of China.

    Wang/Zhang placed 4th (147.10) in Sr. Pairs at 2012 Chinese Nationals in Sept. 2011, according to Wikipedia (there are YouTube videos of them from that comp.).

    ETA that Wang/Zhang placed 7th (47.52 + 98.01 = 145.53) in Sr. Pairs at the Chinese National Winter Games in Jan. 2012, according to the competition thread archived here at FSU. Their SP: http://youtube.com/watch?feature=plpp&v=pKllaNiWz-4

    Their most recent result (Chinese National Figure Skating Grand Prix, Sept. 20-21, 2012, Changchun, Jilin Province), as posted in the Chinese competitions thread in Kiss and Cry:

    Well at least with the WD of S/H, Kexin and Han Yan being kept at juniors, lots of obscure chinese skaters are getting the opportunity to debut internationally and getting Season best scores.. Otherwise they would never stand a chance.

    very sad, I think the late withdrawal was in a hope that Sui would be well by GP but It seems the 3-5 months off the ice will have to be observed
    any chance of Martiusheva/Rogonov getting one of the open WD slots ?

    1. I'd love to see Maritusheva/Rogonov get something.

    2. There's a Wang/Zhang and a [former] Zhang/Wang? I need to follow Chinese pairs more closely.

    Its Dan Zhang's former partner...
    Martiusheva/Rogonov has Cup of Russia though I'd live them to get another GP event.

    ZHANG Dan's former partner ZHANG Hao is currently skating with PENG Cheng, so it's Z/Z to P/Z. I can't keep track of all the ZHANGs and WANGs either, they are some of the most common last names in China. lol


    ZHANG Kexin was assigned to senior GP but she withdrew. And YAN Han did not need the host pick spots had he moved up to senior (kiddo totally thought he would).

    But happy for WANG Yi and ZHANG Ying for getting COC :)

    maybe I misused the comas but I knew that Kexin withdrew also. And if Yan had moved to senior of course he will have given COC even though he didnt need a host pick.

    Zhang/Wang have competed at 4CC, Worlds and were JGP finalists. ;P

    Nope. That is ZHANG Hao and he is now skating with PENG Cheng.

    ZHANG Yan is skating with WANG Wenting and they were 4th at Chinese Nationals.

    There are still 2 pairs slots to be filled: Rostelecom Cup (to replace Vartmann/Van Cleave) and NHK (to replace Sui/Han); plus France's TEB host slot in dance (to replace Zahorski/Miart).

    Montalbano/Krasnopolski were added to Cup of Russia- I guess it was either them or nobody as the other 2 teams (M/R and DM/G) on the alt list are already at CoR.

    Late withdrawal tweeted by Tatjana Flade: "S. Kemp/D. King (GBR) have withdrawn from #SkateCanada as it had to be expected. She has a knee injury."

    Too late to replace them, sadly.

    I don't think they would have replaced K/K even if K/K withdrew from SC the same time they withdrew from S/A.

    Takahashi/Tran have been crossed out from both their GPs (COC and NHK), are they injured?

    I watched a video of them a few weeks ago and Mervin had a big cast on his hand, so it's possible. :(

    It's probably too late to fill the Pairs slot at CoC. And now there are TWO empty pairs slots at NHK. Who's available to fill them?

    I think only Della Monica/Guarise and Martiusheva/Rogonov are left on the alternates list. I know Donlan/Speroff and Zhang/Bartholomay, among a few others, have met the GP min score, but didn't have a SB score from last season so I don't think they can be chosen.
