    She said she is aiming at top ten at worlds next year with her partner. She said one big obstacle is the shyness of Chinese teams and the inability to project the dance themes effectively. She said her partner doesn't talk much

    Good Lord. She said when they first went aboard for training, she had to share a bed with another skater (I can't tell who that person is) to save money. The first day they went to the rented apartment, it had no light, no table. It was completely unfurnished. They put down a black trash bag on the floor, then sat there and ate Ramon noodle.

    Interesting group of upcoming juniors esp. the men (I am very impressed with Han Yan). If they continue to improve, looks like the men from Japan, China and USA will dominating the podium places in next couple of years.

    The original 4T+3T video and 3A+3T video from the same training camp, courtesy of wenwenyin. Also contain some 3A attempts by He Zhang. Apparently the training sessions were open to the public.

    Thank you so much!
    I'm impressed. He is just amazing.
    I was concerned about his second 3T cause he occasionally missed it but my concern proved unfounded!

    And this seems to be a run-through, which means his new FS music is "Tango Jalousie"?

    Not thrilled about "Tango Jalousie" as the music choice for Yan Han but the jumps and his basic skating look amazing.
