(Beijing Winter Olympics) Chinese duo Sui Wenjing/Han Cong set another world record in pair skating short program

  China News Agency, Beijing, February 18 (Reporter Zhang Su) 84.41 points, the electronic screen of Beijing Capital Gymnasium announced this score on the evening of the 18th, causing the audience to cheer.

Not only because the Chinese pair skating team Sui Wenjing/Han Cong topped the short program list, but also set a new world record for the ISU pair skating short program.

  "No feeling." Sui Wenjing said about breaking the record.

After all, the original world record (82.83 points) was created by the pair when they participated in the figure skating team event at the Beijing Winter Olympics on February 4.

Moreover, they now need to focus more on the free skating competition to be held on the 19th.

  Four years ago in Pyeongchang, Sui Wenjing/Han Cong lost the Olympic figure skating pair skating gold medal by only 0.43 points.

Today, the Chinese pair, who say they are "not too young", continue to increase the difficulty and "rush for gold", and they will make a "quadruple jump" in the free skating.

  Difficulty also means risk.

After the short program, the three groups of players from the Russian Olympic Committee followed closely, chasing each other closely.

But in Sui Wenjing's view, every group has a chance to win gold, and the "slight difference" is the highlight of the competition.

All they have to do is show their best and "have fun and have fun."

  Another Chinese pair, Peng Cheng/Jin Yang, temporarily ranked 5th after the short program.

Compared with the short program stage in Pyeongchang, being able to advance to the free skating is a breakthrough.

After completing all the moves today, Peng Cheng couldn't help but jump up on the ice.

  Jin Yang was more calm. After the replay, he said that the two played to an ideal level, but some details were not in place, so they failed to refresh the best results of the season.

  This season, Peng Cheng/Jin Yang broke through the action of twisting the upper hand to reach level 4, and also carried out targeted training for personal weaknesses.

The short program selection is also twists and turns, and the two insist on the fusion of classical music and hip-hop music.

"Today's performance proves that our persistence is right," Peng Cheng said.

  It is worth mentioning that Shen Xue/Zhao Hongbo won the gold medal in pair skating at the Vancouver Winter Olympics in the last Chinese traditional lunar year of the tiger.

This is also the only Winter Olympic gold medal of the Chinese figure skating team so far.

The pair of "Ice Couples" also came to the Capital Gymnasium today to help out their two pairs of disciples, "Sui Han" and "Peng Jin".

  The world champions Mishna/Galiamov are regarded as the strongest "blockers" for the Chinese team to win the championship, and they temporarily ranked third after the short program.

Galliamov said he was satisfied with today's performance, and of course he was well aware of the heavy responsibility he had on his shoulders.

Mishna said: "We will enjoy the fun of being on the Winter Olympics again in the free skating." (End)
