There are pairs skaters - and then there is Xue Shen and Hongbo Zhao! This married couple has come back after being off the competitive circuit for nearly 3 years and they haven't missed a beat. They are the gold standard when it comes to pairs skating and in the short program at the Grand Prix Final in Japan - they set a new record for a pairs short program! They were so incredibly good and skated with such evident joy that I was moved to tears!

If you get a chance to watch any figure skating over the next few days - try to get a glimpse of these two luminous and brilliant skaters from China. I am betting on them to win Gold in Vancouver!
