I guess there's one thing good to come out of the awful CCP social scorecards after all...

What about Wang/Zhu?
Yang/Deng are outscoring them now. Wang/Zhu have always struggled to get positive GOEs on their lifts, and were falling on spins and crashing into each other on their SBS jumps at the NWG... Their recent performances remind me very much of Zhao/Liu and their downwards trajectory earlier this season before splitting/retiring.

The future number 2 Chinese pair could be Jia(The giant misogynistic baby)Ziqi/Zhao Wantong? the new pair. HATE HIM but still have to admit that he is one of the few Chinese men in pair skating who is technically capable. Zhao is also a good pair girl. Hope that he can stick with her for a bit longer, unlike his previous partners.

But honestly, I don't think any of them might get a chance to compete internationally, and many of the senior pair skaters in China are pretty mediocre at international competitions. I also seriously doubt that Wang Yihan will be strong enough to carry and lift his current partner Zhang Jiaxun when Zhang starts to get puberty based on his poor work ethic and fitness level, even though they can land harder SBS combo and quad twist. The pair skating in China is just devastatingly hopeless in this Olympic cycle, I just hope that Luan Bo and Sui can make some magic on their junior teams in the future after Milan 2026.

They are Team Wang Jialei (Chinese Samba school and Chinese Eteri LOL).
Training in Coach Higuchi's rink is a good choice IMO.
Hope you guys are feeling bit less gloom and doom, btw, I felt gutted for your team and you fans.

I wish they wouldn't, given all that surfaced with IAM.

But it's good that, despite all the despair, Chinese skating clearly shows investment.
I believe they pay most of the fees by themselves, not the China Fed.

Some updates on Chinese skaters.

Jin Shuxian(金书贤/eligible for the next JGP season and NWG gold medalist) is now training and having new choreography in Korea.

Wang Yihan from Beijing(王一涵) is now training in Sofya Fedchenko's skating club in Russia

Liu Yuxuan from Guangdong(刘玉萱/11 yrs old)caught my attention in NWG this year, and she nailed 3Lo+3Lo+2A in training recently. Can't wait to see her performance next season.

Dai Daiwei’s new programs will be choreographed by Nikolai Moroshkin

No matter how desperate the current situation of Chinese FS is, the Chinese drama is always there.
Some insiders say that there will be a big swap in most of the Chinese Ice dance teams.

From my sources, It seems that only Lin/Gao and Xiao/He(Or Liu/Ge?)will be saved, most of the teams, including Chen/Xing, Li/Wang, have to end their partnership and pair up with the other skaters.
