    A short interview with Zhao Hongbo:

    http://sports.sina.com.cn/o/2013-05-...06581256.shtml
    ETA: He said he's not forced to do this; the team needs him and he won't dwell on the personal benefits. There are some problems but it's better to know now than at the Olympics. At the moment Yao is still in the hospital because of his neck (???). So he'll know more about work arrangements later.
    Zhang respected Zhao's choice of lp music this year (Yellow River Concerto). Zhao thinks it's important to show case something representative of your people. He's not lonely because he's doing it himself; his wife will help as health allows. (He says it's a girl and the baby will be their "treasure" regardless of sex)

    An article about his role:

    This one has more about S/Z's personal life:

    He said for sure Pang/Tong will take up one spot, so it's just a matter of Sui/Han vs. Chen/Zhang. And it is on these two pairs that he will focus most of his energy. He also said that although it will be a challenge, gold/silver will be within P/T's reach. Ack. I wish they'd let P/T retire and rest, and let the two young pairs go instead.

    Why does it matter what music the pair uses.

    I wish China did not qualify a pair for Sochi if only to finally let P&T retire and rest. With how broken P&T are and how green and untested the other two top pairs are, I think China is very daring even thinking about a pairs medal.

    Short program is gonna be some sort of wild movements; lp is silence of the lamb
    He says his strength is in his bladework; he thinks he's not that far off from the top skaters. He needs experience and performance skills.

    My guess would be Song's short program is to Bruch, long program to The Mission.

    Actually he means blues music,not Bruch.

    And Han Yan's short programme will be Minor Waltz (Laurent Korcia) and Viper's Drag ( Nigel kennedy's version)

    http://sports.sina.com.cn/o/2013-06-...56613154.shtml
    They are done with their programs. Yao Bin still in the hospital. They want to do well but they also want to contribute (by helping the sport)

    Does anyone know how Geng Bingwa does these days? I like her but recently I can't find any news about her. Any small information is welcome, please.

    Interview with Li Zijun:

    http://sports.sina.com.cn/o/2013-06-...96618699.shtml
    She wants to do two perfect programs at the Olympics. She wants to improve her fitness, the reliability of her jumps and her performance ability. She has no plans to up her diffculty. She believes herself to be a balanced skater.

    About Shen/Zhao:
    http://sports.sina.com.cn/o/2013-06-...96621029.shtml
    (Zhao admitted to being chauvinistice and needed Shen to work with him.)

    Han Yan talked about his new programmes during the press conference of Artistry On Ice: http://sports.sina.com.cn/o/2013-06-..._bid=246472924

    The short(music had been revealed,Minor waltz mixed with Viper's drag) is about a guy falls in love with a girl and do some crazy things,and Han Yan added later on his weibo " it's quite hoodlumish."

    And the Long is from the soundtrack " Hannibal" and he is going to portrait Dr. Hannibal Lecter.According to the weibo of Han Yan's fan club, the music piece he use is "gourmet valse tartare" mixed with "the blue danube"from Strauss II. Lori choreographed a short programme with "gourmet valse tartare" for Patrick Chan back in 2006,but someone who apparently listened to the new music cut said it's very different from Patrck's.

    Han Yan said the short is fun and the long is "unbelievably difficult". I am very looking forward to the two new programmes!
