The People’s Daily Online reports that the new figure skating season has officially begun – at least, it has here in China. The China Figure Skating Masters competition will be held over two days this coming weekend in Beijing, and will give China’s stars and its new talent a chance to shine before serious training for the new season begins. Among those scheduled to compete: Olympic pairs silver medallists Zhang Dan and Zhang Hao, Olympic bronze medallists (and 2006 world champions) Pang Qing and Tong Jian, and men’s international competitor Li Chengjiang. The Beijing Century Star Skating Centre (首体世纪星溜冰场) will host the event. Want to know more about the skating center, or skating in China in general?
