    Yep, they're assigned to croatia and italy. Really hope the Chinese camp has been working on sbs jumps...

Hope lori will work on it more if this is what they're sticking to.
    i am not worried; it is early and when the skate clean the marks will jump. S/H are still the faves and defending world champs. Give them time to clean up and work their magic. I would have preferred not to have both S/H and Patrick Chanuse Hallelujah though. Mind you I guess one can argue S/H are contenders anda t best patrick is a pretender? Depending on your perspective.

    Nah, I'm not worried about their shape at this point; like you said and my original post, it's early and they'll get the points if clean esp. with their world champ status. just wish the music cuts are changed. Don't mind/doesn't matter that patrick and s/h are both using hallelujah. Different discipline.

    Just saw a HD version of S/H's programs. actually the short program is quite nice, very different feel from Patrick's. and the smooth skating skills plus the connection between sui and han gives warm and aromatic feel.

    The LP - most of the athletes had big mistakes in that event, heard the venue was quite cold and the ice was not very good. probably that's the reason. Regarding the music cut, I do hope Lori can re-touch it a bit. the first half is excellent, just the second part is a bit......over the top... OR it was that the mistakes messed up the whole feel. Honestly, I'm not worried about them too much...


    Peng/ Jin's LP... oh dear - I miss Lulu,,,, the best version of butterfly lovers ever - 1998 olympics LP

    Yu/ Zhang ... Love the SP, love the classic piece when everyone goes vocal. LP suits them well too.. Overall, I think Y/Z's programs are slightly better.

    It's a sappy pop song, and G/X are still unpolished and somewhat slow on ice, but IMO the music choice alone is already far above the rest of the juniors and it provides a great vehicle that can be built upon. As for S/H, I think the root problem are their music cuts, which are atrocious. Not much can be done if your music is not good. I'm also trying to have faith in S/H since it's so early in the season, but it would be a shame to see them suffer a setback after a fantastic two seasons.

    (Unfortunately rather than working on jumps it seems like G/X regressed because Gao grew so much )

    Of the new programs, I like Han's best immediately. The rest I have to wait to see them more practiced, polished and maybe even adjusted. I'm sure I'll enjoy them a lot more later at international events and with better videos.

    Goodness, she is tall for a pair girl. They have less height difference than dance pairs. Amazingly the twist still looks good. Sigh at the ur(probably) 3s... Hopefully she can get overcome this rough patch and get some triples before seniors.
