Baby joy for star pair (3)


09:18, April 18, 2013

"I recently went to Heilongjiang province to select young skaters and I have a rough list now," said Zhao.

"I want to select potential pair from those young singles skaters. I also plan to give them detailed training both on land and on ice. They will receive artistic performance training on land and skating skills' training on ice."

Since Shen and Zhao's retirement, Chinese figure skating has been in a bit of a slump. Current top pair Pang Qing and Tong Jian, two-time world champions and Vancouver Olympic silver medalists, have been hit by injuries. Young teammate Zhang Hao, who changed partners last year, has been unable to recapture the form which saw him claim silver at the Turin Winter Olympics in 2006 with former partner Zhang Dan.

"Chinese figure skating is in a difficult time right now," Zhao said.

"I'm still waiting for the administrative center to approve my coaching position … I want to give the young skaters all of my experience if I'm appointed coach."
