Allow me to make a thread for Zijun Very Happy . I had hoped that she'd skate to a tango this season to project herself more, and indeed she'll skate to Danzarin.


This looks very promising. Her layback and spins are amazing and she showed a new dimension of her skating.

I think she's lucky to have both good coaches and good choreographers. Her programs are often very age appropriate and suits her perfectly.

I really like Zijun. Lovely girl. Lovely skating. Lovely attitude. If she keeps on improving she'll definitely be on the podium someday or sooner. I just hope the puberty monster will be kind to her.

Many people like her. The Eurosport commentators kept raving about her. But the judge seemed to be unimpressed. I think they don't like the princess-like, subtlet or lighter-than air style. Her PCS at 4CC and Worlds were underscored. They seem to prefer powerful and athletic skaters like Caro or Yuna.
I hope she wouldn't have problem with puberty. Most Asian girls' bodies don't change much after puberty.

Here's Zijun's SP at the China Grand Prix. Tango is not her strength. She said in an interview that she wanted to skate to Nutcracker, but Lori felt that it was too mature for her. I don't get that. Nutcracker should be perfect for a graceful 16 year-old girl.

Zijun replied to her fans' inquiries that she hadn't been training systematically and that was her first time skating through the SP music.
Plus, it's obviously in the video that she might be injured with her left leg.
Hopefully she'll get better with the program as the season progress.

Has Lori been smoking something? Nutcracker would be PERFECT for Zijun.Very Mad  How is Nutcracker (the ballet is great for kids by the way) too mature for a 16 year old, but Tango is OK...if anything, it should be the other way around. And for Lori's information, Nutracker is more than just the Sugar Plum fairy Pas de deux! Man, this would trully be perfect for Zijun.

What is her LP this season?

Her LP is Coppelia. I've never watched it, and she hasn't debuted it either, so don't know what to expect. Uh, why do so many skaters go to Lori? This is Olympic season, and Lori has too many clients, so naturally she'll devote more to her favorite. I'm all for skaters experiementing and trying new things, but this season is not the right time to experiment.

I came across this montage of Mao while searching for coppelia. Brilliant. This ballet piece fits Mao's style like a pair of gloves.

I've just watched her LP. The camera angle was really bad so I couldn't tell how good the choreography, step sequence and jumps were. But it's obvious that she was injured. Hope she'll get used to it soon. This program has the potential to bring the house down.

Thanks for the clips.  I want to wait to judge if I like her SP or not until when she will be able to skate it with her full potential.  And, I think it's good idea for her to venture out of her comfortable zone with music choice this season.  It's less likely that she will finish on the Olympic podium at Sochi anyway (but it's more likely that she will win an Olympic medal, hopefully OGM Cheering , in 2018 if she improves steadily as she has done so far). So trying something different now should be beneficial for her.  I just hope she will get better sooner and do not push herself too much when she's injured.

Thank you for the link.
Gosh I hope she's OK, she just stopped performing for a little while after the fall on 3Lo.pale  She should rest and heal, so she'll be able to blow everyone away at GP and especially Oly's. But resting and healing is something Chinese federation has never heard off.Depressed Crying
