牛哇牛哇 should be replaced with 🕳️🕳️ 哇 that's all I got to say about this "competition" (well, also, the stream remains beautifully high quality, fingers crossed NWG will be equally well done)

eta: oh look! not even the competitors care about this comp and it shows!

Tian Tonghe would be a huge deal if he could land difficult jumps. His skating and presentation skills are just brilliant and evolved SO MUCH compared to his JGP debut. Team Jilin should stop spending money on irrelevant skaters and invest their money on someone who has true talents.

SHADE

Does Jilin have no good men's coaches? I find it ridiculous they can't just hold a "talent" competition as it were and let the best skaters switch provincial clubs, or why they don't at least let Fu/Xu be the jump experts available to every male and female skater. It would make perfect sense, and the jumping legacy would at least endure?

I gonna get it straight, ALL OF THEIR ICE DANCERS:D

All of the skating legacies of Jilin have already been transferred to Beijing (the Beijing Century Star skating club is created by mainly all of the former Jilin skaters). Jilin does produce some good men skaters, like Li Chengjiang, and Li Chengjiang is also a coach right now coaching Chen Hongyi at this moment, but he is now working for Team Hebei and his coaching skill is just Meh... Xu/Fu would not help the other province's skaters because they are working for Team Beijing right now.

Right but I don't get why this "province" thing exists though. They should be "national" coaches. Put them and Yan Han's coach in a "national" team. They can teach the most talented singles skaters around the country jumps + skating skills together. In fact this set up would be no different from what Eteri "has" in her doping centre, and what Colorado Springs wishes it had but failed to have.

The quality of the Ladies’ short program today was very good, and most of the skaters delivered clean programs. The stand-outs were definitely Li Ruotang and Tong Ruicheng, the 2nd and 3rd in Nationals this year. They are just so lovely and lyrical and have great talents in musicality.

I didn't watch yet, but I did notice China has very nice women coming up. It's actually not just Nini, even though she's head and shoulders above the rest. I think I pointed out how the audience was very excited after the women's long at nationals, rightly so.

Wow, hadn't watched him before since I don't really follow the junior circuit, but his musicality and ease of movement remind me of a young Nathan Chen.

It will be fun to root for Luan Bo teams and root against Jilin Dance teams with raruki and otisgear the next three years. And to go :scream: with gris when Sun/Li are on screen.

Guo/Zhang's 3Tw3 looks so solid and the height, distance, and glide out of their 2FTh is amazing it's really not far away from a triple.

Thank you Luan Bo for bringing some light to the Chinese pairs scene once again

Pity that Luan's girls are still around 10 and 11 years old and they will have at least one or two years of waiting to attend the JGP.
But the good thing is they have enough time to grow, and given what they performed yesterday, they truly give us hope indeed and will pick up more triples right away!
💀BUT Let's hope Luan DO NOT suddenly force her skaters to practice quad twist and quad throw again💀

I have a request for all the people who are kind enough to post Chinese skating news for us. Please could you put the family name in all upper case. I know Wenjing SUI is Sui Wenjing for you, but for many of us we've switched her name to the western way as that's how she appears in international competitions.

I look at all the skaters listed above and don't know how I'm going to get to know any of them if I can't even get their names straight so it would be a great help to have their family name in capitals, even if you retain it in first place in the Chinese way.

Thank you so much.

ETA: What's the black hole thing? Who does it refer to?

with some exceptions, the majority of names are three characters, 3 syllables. If it is a list of names (if formatted consistently), it's a safe guess that the single syllable part is the last name. But it does help if names are consistently formatted (last name first or first name first)

Ok that helps a lot, thanks. So I can see the playlists that @raruki has posted above the names are (of course) in the Chinese order with the family name first and given name second. Have I got this right?

when I clicked on the link I don't see a list with the same order, but I do see some names on the right and they all seem to be last name first. e.g. Zhang Siyang/ Yang Yongchao - the last name is Zhang and Yang.
e.g. Lin Yufei, even without reading the Chinese, Lin is surely a last name.

Of course, if you have a two or four syllable name you will have to ask. Sometimes there are 2-syllable last names but those are less common.

Sorry Guys, I don't notice that the playlist doesn't match the orders of the final rankings(The playlist of SP did match the orders of the rankings in SP though). I have edited the post again and inserted the specific links of each skater. And thanks for following the Chinese skating news.
