Only the 1st and 5th stages have Sr and Jr pairs. These two events count for the qualification of National Winter Games next year so higher profile skaters from all disciplines were likely to take part in.

Here's the rest of pairs results at 5th stage:

Senior

5 Yuyao Zhang / Yunzhi Guo 77.61
6 Weijia He / Junming Huang 58.12

Junior

1 Yuchen Wang / Yihang Huang 155.25
2 Huidi Wang / Ziqi Jia 147.41
3 Jiaen Li / Zijian Wang 130.93
4 Motong Liu / Tianze Wang 121.55
5 Daizifei Zhu / Yuhang Liu 103.18
6 Jiaxuan Zhang / Zhiyu Wang 87.93
7 Yixi Yang / Shunyuyao Deng 70.91

Sr Nationals will start this Saturday (Sept 14-15) and will be broadcasted.

Notable participants: Han Yan, He Zhang; Xiangyi An, Hongyi Chen; Peng / Jin, Yu / Zhang, Tang / Yang, Liu / Xie; Wang / Liu, Chen / Sun, Ning / Wang

BTW, Hengxin Jin went to train with team Tutberidze after JGP Courchevel for about 10 days. Here are a few pics of her with Eteri, Sergei Dudakov and other skaters.

ETA: Wang / Wang won't be at Nationals due to her injury. Sorry @Jeschke :( . But their club posted this Tuesday saying that they were back on ice so I assume the injury was probably healed already.

I have no clue about the details of the National's Sr singles field but according to Han Yan Fan Van it seems Han Yan won the nationals. Congrats to him! Even without quads his skating is always beautiful and he actually matured on the artistic side. 🥰

Peng Cheng/Jin Yang win pairs at Figure Skating National Championships (recap article in English; this "also served as a qualifier for the National Winter Games next year"): http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/2019-09/15/c_138393738.htm
Excerpt:
"We are not satisfied with the free skate," said Jin. "It's the season opener and we need to make some adjustment."
In the men's competition, veteran Yan Han came back strongly and won the gold medal with a beautiful long program "La La Land". Yan, seventh at the 2014 Sochi Games, had thought about retiring last season, but still cannot give it up as he still dreams about the Olympic Games.
"I want to take part in the Beijing Winter Games, so I come back," said Yan, who won the gold in 231.50. Zhang He and Wang Yi ranked second and third respectively. Jin Boyang, who took fifth at the Worlds earlier the year, didn't take part in the Nationals.
Boyang Jin wasn't there because he was made his international season debut at Lombardia Trophy in Italy this past weekend and won the gold (268.31 total):
1st in SP (101.09): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MVxEo_KwvA

@Gris, do you (or anyone else) know of any Asian Open Trophy junior/novice singles links for starting orders/results? Ditto for the ISU Challenger Series competition this week in Dongguan (ETA: there's supposed to be a livestream for this comp.). I'd like to post the info in both competition threads in the Kiss & Cry section. Thanks in advance!

Love Love Love both programs of Xiangyi AN for this season, especially FS (by Richaud?) :love: Wish she'll be more consistent on jumps as the season goes. Do we know if she has an entry to any international competition this season?
I'd love to see her getting an international novice competition too but that seems unlikely...
Asian Open Figure Skating Trophy 2019 (Dongguan CHN)
Advanced Novice Girls (competed Oct. 30 & 31):
GOLD - Xiangyi AN CHN 138.63 1 1 (93.01 FS, 6 clean triples)
...
ETA link to 5 award ceremony photos posted by "Nini" An's fan account: https://www.instagram.com/p/B4SfvPKJQd2/

Loved both the SP and LP. Kudos to P/J and team for making interesting music choice and utilizing interesting choreography. I need to watch the programs a few more times to grasp all the nuances in the choreography.

These programs could vault P/J up in the standings. If they skate well, maybe even get them on the podium at Worlds.

Quoting myself from the Pairs thread - looks like Yu / Zhang have split.

Xiaoyu Yu is on Ice Partner Search so I assume she and Hao Zhang have split.

ETA: Her bio has been removed. Wonder what this means...

Given the fact that she’s on Ice Partner Search, I’m guessing it means her career with Team China is over too?? :unsure: I mean, if China had a partner for her, she wouldn’t be on IPS.

I find this :wuzrobbed on a lot of levels.

It's inevitable that Zhang's partner, whoever it is, would be left needing a partner at some point. I hope she savors her Olympic experience. 4th and 7th at worlds are nothing to sneeze at either.

BTW, China announced their team for the Youth Olympics earlier today -- can anyone confirm that the JGP pair of Yuchen WANG / Yihang HUANG ( http://www.isuresults.com/bios/isufs00104704.htm ) are included?
Yes, and Yudong Chen too. We were only the next eligible alternate in Junior Men so there must be a country that gave up their quota.

I wonder if Zhang will be back with a new partner. I don't remember if he was injured or if it was just Yu that was having a lot of injury issues.

It was his injury not hers. She actually skated their SP as a solo before while he was injured and recovering.

YU Xiaoyu's IPS profile (dated today 12/26/19): http://icepartnersearch.com/showbio.php?i=6729 (ETA that the link now reads: "Yu Xiaoyu has removed his/her biography.")

Bing HAN is listed as the coach (listed 2nd in her ISU bio with Hao Zhang: http://www.isuresults.com/bios/isufs00055106.htm ).
Wow it seems like this is a very strange situation. After all, China doesn't use Ice Partner Search - they just pair people up. I wonder if she was hoping to form a team with someone from another country or something and China vetoed it? Or maybe China has already found another partner for her?
