From an article about Zhang/Zhang -- they and Pang/Tong are scheduled to compete in the Chinese National Winter Games this week: http://www.shanghaidaily.com/article...a.asp?id=43009
For China's top figure skating pair Zhang Dan and Zhang Hao, nothing but the gold medal could satisfy them at the 12th National Winter Games which opened here Tuesday evening.
Yet, the two-time defending champions have to battle against not only daunting rivals like Pang Qing and Tong Jian, the two-time world champions, but also pains from a string of injuries.
Zhang Hao was seen both arms bandaged in a training session at the Changchun Skating Stadium here at the capital city of Northeast China's Jilin province.
"The pain is killing me when I try to unbend my right elbow," said the 27-year-old Zhang Hao, who failed to complete the lift in training due to the injury and had to put an ice package on his arms to ease the pain.
