Just to further elaborate on my choice of Shen and Zhao... look back at some of their earlier programs when they first came on the scene. Shen had a mouthful of crooked teeth, her costumes were uninspiring, and their choreography and music choices were nothing to comment about. When they retired from competitive skating the Chinese federation had become more professional - her teeth were fixed, her costumes were gorgeous, they brought in choreographers from the US, etc. etc. Yao Bin realized to promote his pairs team and make China competitive he had to step it up - and he did!! They always had the talent - just didn't have the packaging. And from that one pair look at all the pairs that have followed and the success they've had. And now Zhao has picked up the reins and is continuing "the legacy!"
