The Olympics are here again, so idarklight is again distracted by prettiness. Here’s a post dedicated to the young generation of figure skaters.
First up is the darling of the team – Liu Zijun. At the age of 17, she’s the national champ for female solos four times over. The first Chinese female to medal in a world event since Lu Chen in the 90’s, not to mention one of the cutest. The girl is such a charm that her routines have so far consisted of Snow White, Up, and my favorite, Sleeping Beauty.
Next up is Yan Han, whose ship with Liu Zijun I can predict rising in the future. Three time national champion at the age of also 17 (but a bit older than Liu Zijun), China’s top male soloist is also quite handsome with a lovely smile. Also a big fan of the formalwear style of his costumes. If adult him isn’t cute enough, just look at him when he was 10!
Among the pairs, the young star featured is Peng Cheng (16), who is paired with four-time Olympian Zhang Hao. The “uncle and lolita” team placed 2nd in the pairs short program in teams, but didn’t place in pairs after Peng Cheng fell. Zhang Hao says he’s still ready for 2018.
Also, guys, Tian Yucheng is training with the help of Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo, and Tian Liang is finally considering letting her going into sports if she wants to. Can you imagine how adorable she will be if she makes it?
Also, more Li Zijun cuteness!
