Now because all of us 100% care and totally want to watch magic on ice, this account has updates:

I'm stunned nobody told me that the team's actually Liu/Ge. The guy, otoh, I don't think I've ever heard of (Qu Zhibo) and I'm going to pretend I didn't even if someone shows me receipts that in fact I did.

Yihan should work on her expressions, as she always keeps that poker face in every program. :ROFLMAO:
Bit unfortunate for her today because of the politicking of the judges and illness. She coughed before that messy 3F.
But yeah, still a very successful debut for her! and now gets that junior national title in November and competes in the Junior Worlds next year.

Question for our Chinese skating experts - are any of the junior teams eligible for the Winter Youth Olympic Games?

Both partners must be born between 1 Jan 2006 and 31 Dec 2009.

AFAIK no eligible pairs team. Several dance teams are, though, including Tong Liu / Quanshuo Ge (2008/2006) and Shanjie Yin / Shirui Yang (2007/2007).

Huh. Then it will be Tonghe's.

Junior worlds has two spots? Then Yudong has time, IIRC it will be based off senior nationals.

Yes there are 2 spots in men in JWC. It's (partly) based off Junior Nationals, but those with World Standing (including Junior WS) in top 50 by Dec. 31 will be given priority and Yudong currently is ranked 20th. I think his spot is safe as long as he recovers well.

Someone needs to make a Chinese skating twitter so people/I can bookmark/search tweets... i花滑 is active occasionally, someone needs to go harass them to be more active

Junior Worlds: Priority given to skaters in the Top 50 on ISU Season's Ranking. The other entries for Men, Women and Dance will be selected based on the results of the Junior Nationals (Nov. 19-27), the other entries for Pairs will be selected based on the results of the Senior Nationals (Dec. 21-24).
I forgot only Pairs is via senior nationals. Anyway I bookmarked this post now :p

Yeaji Shin was tagged as the choreographer for both programs in July.

Xiangyi (Nini) AN's new free skate, choreographed by Benoit Richaud, is from the Lara film soundtrack (2019) by Arash Safaian (refer to raruki's post above mine). Her new FS music is not yet listed in her ISU bio.

Team China looked pretty okay here. I didn't expect Day to be in shape because of how suddenly it all happened, but any experience internationally is good. Jin's improving his basic skating quite a bit - want to see more work on body movement and facial expression. Definitely looking like he's regaining strength with his jumps now. Like the LP much more than the SP, but I think this SP is supposed to show he can do transitions and "complex moves" so I kinda get it. Peng/Wang did great, throw triple and triple twist, maybe it won't be a complete wreck with them at the GPs, and the SP is fantastic choreography. Zhang/Yang did about as well as I expected, but I like this program more than last season's.
