On the ice: 3 short track speed skating and gold figure skating pairs strive to make up for regrets

At this Winter Olympics, this "Knife on Ice" has already earned 2 gold.

  In the second half, short track speed skating will also produce 4 gold medals. The Chinese team has the strength to compete for gold medals in the women's 3000m and men's 5000m relay, as well as the men's 500m 3 events.

Among them, the men's 500m was the only event that the Chinese Legion won the gold medal in the last Winter Olympics. The defending champion Wu Dajing, the "double champion" Ren Ziwei of this Winter Olympics, and the "post-00" teenager Sun Longjun successfully advanced in the preliminaries. Strive to defend the title for the Chinese team in this project.

  Figure skating pair skating will produce gold medals on the 19th.

At the last Winter Olympics, Sui Wenjing/Han Cong finished runner-up with a difference of 0.43 points.

This season, the Chinese pair have won consecutive World Cup championships.

In this Winter Olympics figure skating team competition, the two scored first among all competitors in the double short program, and this time they are expected to make up for the regrets of four years ago at home.

  Speed ​​skating will also yield seven gold medals, with the Chinese team expected to compete for medals in the men's 1000m event.

  At the Canadian Station of the Speed ​​Skating World Cup two months ago, Ning Zhongyan reached the top in the men's 1000m final, which is China's first international championship for speed skating in this event.

In the men's 1500m speed skating final at the Winter Olympics, Ning Zhongyan expressed "dissatisfaction" after finishing seventh.

I hope the 22-year-old will have no regrets in the 1,000-meter event.

On the snow: The little ghost is still a veteran and the sword is not old

  At this Winter Olympics, the previous situation of the Chinese Army's "strong ice and weak snow" has been changed.

As of 18:00 on the 12th, the China Snow Project has contributed 1 gold, 2 silver and 1 bronze.

In the second half of the Winter Olympics, China's gold-winning momentum in snow sports is expected to surpass that on ice.

  "Home Alone" is the biggest attraction in the second half of the Chinese snow sports event.

At present, 18-year-old Gu Ailing and under 18-year-old Su Yiming have won 1 gold and 1 silver respectively. Next, these two teenagers will also appear in 3 competitions.

  From the 14th to the 15th, Su Yiming will play in the qualification and final of the snowboard big jumping platform.

Su Yiming won the event's first World Cup title for the Chinese team this season, and his strength and ability in the event are considered to surpass his silver medal-winning slope obstacle skills.

  At this Winter Olympics, Gu Ailing has three events, and the freestyle ski jumping platform that won her the gold medal a few days ago is her "weakness".

At last year's World Championships, Gu Ailing won 2 golds and 1 bronze. The bronze medal came from the big jumping platform, and the two gold medals came from her upcoming freestyle ski slope obstacle skills and U-shaped venue.

  In the freestyle skiing arena, the Chinese team also has two gold points guarded by veterans: men's and women's aerial skills.

Aerial skills are the traditional advantages of Chinese snow sports, and it is also the source of the Chinese delegation's only snow sports gold medal in the previous 11 Winter Olympics.

  At this Winter Olympics, the three Winter Olympics "four dynasties veterans" of the Chinese Freestyle Ski Aerial Team have won silver medals in the mixed team competition.

In the individual competition, Xu Mengtao, the runner-up of the Sochi Winter Olympics, is the biggest favorite for women's aerial skills.

Jia Zongyang of the men's team is the silver medalist at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics, and Qi Guangpu is the double champion of the World Championships and the World Cup. The double insurance of the two is expected to add another medal or even a gold medal to the Chinese team.

  In addition to competing for gold and silver, there are many things to watch in the second half of the competition for the Chinese team.

The men's ice hockey and men's and women's curling battles are getting better and better. It is worth looking forward to what kind of performance and achievements the several Chinese teams will have.

  In the first half of the trip, the Chinese delegation has had a number of projects that either filled the gaps in the Olympic Games or made historical breakthroughs.

In the second half, the surprises brought by the Chinese Legion to the audience will continue.
