    Thanks! Excerpt re. Zhao's coaching role:
    Besides becoming a father and an artist director, Zhao will take on another role soon — a coach of the Chinese figure skating team.

    Although that position still has to be approved by the Chinese Winter Sports Administrative Center, Zhao has already started laying out his plans.

    "I recently went to Heilongjiang province to select young skaters and I have a rough list now," said Zhao.

    "I want to select potential pair from those young singles skaters. I also plan to give them detailed training both on land and on ice. They will receive artistic performance training on land and skating skills' training on ice."
    ...
    "Chinese figure skating is in a difficult time right now," Zhao said.

    "I'm still waiting for the administrative center to approve my coaching position … I want to give the young skaters all of my experience if I'm appointed coach."
    A separate, celebratory thread was started here: Shen And Zhao Will Be New Parents Soon!

    Article on ice dancers HUANG Xintong / ZHENG Xun

    落选赛成中国冰舞黄金组合最后机会 冬奥会后退役
    http://sports.sina.com.cn/o/2013-04-...46536099.shtml

    Quick summary:

    HUANG / ZHENG have been together for 14 years (!!) and nebelhorn trophy is their last chance to qualify for the Sochi Olympics. Because her health issues, they will certainly retire after Sochi. He is not considering to find a new partner.

    They recently performed in an ice show and were quite happy with her recovery. There is certainly a lot of pressure for the team to qualify for Sochi, and the competition is way more difficult compared to four years ago.

    After retiring, he wants to coach the little ones, and she just wishes to "heal and rest" first.

    I so hope they qualify, but I think they will be at Sochi in any case if they can regain their national championship, because China qualified for WTT this year (top 6) and the Olympic version has the top 10 teams. And I am expecting them to regain it. I hope Huang continues to heal!

    So maybe my eyes were not deceiving me when I thought it was Hao ZHANG in a Toronto area skate shop on Sunday with a bunch of young asians (maybe some skaters.. wasn't really paying attention to them)?

    Yes they are still in Canada. YAN Han just posted a picture of himself taking a dance class. Other than that, not much news.

    Whilst I really dislike her work (Kostner's programs being an exception), she surely can't do any worse than the crap he had last season.

    Coach YAO is still the head coach of the national team.

    ZHAO is the 8th member of the pairs coaching team. His role is not yet finalized, but according to the report he will likely coach WANG Xuehan / WANG Lei and CHEN Xiaoxue / GUO Wenxiong.

    Sorry I pasted in a rush and added the link without any explanation.

    P/T will be assistant coach. Li MingZhu will be coaching ladies. Pairs and singles will be training in Beijing; Ice dancing will be elsewhere, coached by 奚鸿雁

    ETA: more articles http://sports.sina.com.cn/o/2013-05-...96569455.shtml

    This second article link posted by jlai seems to say (last section) that Pang/Tong still hope to compete in the Sochi Olympics despite his knee injury while also transitioning to a coaching role? http://sports.sina.com.cn/o/2013-05-...06568581.shtml

    I wish P/T would just retire. From the article it sounds like the injury is v hard to heal and another Olympics may not be worth it. Plus he is putting off surgery which makes it worse

    Agreed, and China only has two Olympic spots, so if Pang/Tong don't retire means that either P/Z or S/H (probably the latter) won't get to go. Sadly, I think P/T might be forced to continue in the hopes of earning an Olympic medal.

    Article in English about Shen/Zhao's new coaching roles: http://usa.chinadaily.com.cn/sports/...t_16518502.htm
    Zhao, a figure skating promoter, husband and soon-to-be father, has added another role to his impressive resume as he was appointed coach of the national team's pairs skaters on Tuesday as they prepare for the 2014 Sochi Games.
    ...
    Having acted as artistic director for the Artistry On Ice show following his retirement, Zhao said he will work with the young skaters on improving their artistic moves.
    "Figure skating requires complicated skills, but it is also an artistic performance," he said. "For many years, Chinese figure skating has been regarded as first class in jumping, second class in gliding and third class in artistic performance. Shen and I learned from many performances against foreign skaters how to overcome that (artistic) weakness.
