Wenjing Sui & Cong Han scored a runaway victory on home soil at at 2017 Cup of China. It was the first competition of the season for the reigning World pairs champions. “We only competed nationally this season but I think we were in good shape and we looked forward to this event,” Han said.

When the duo decided on selections from ″Turandot″ for their long program — the same music their coach Hongbo Zhao and Shue Xen used for the 2009-2010 Olympic season — Zhao told them they would have to be better than he and Xen and they would have to make it their own.

David Pelletier and Kurt Browning believe they are the frontrunners for 2018 Olympic gold.
