Shen and Zhao won the Cup of China Grand Prix event last week, placing 1st in both the Short Program and Free Skate. Xue put her hand down on the throw triple loop in the Short Program, but it was an otherwise elegant and beautiful performance. Shen and Zhao earned 62.28 points in the Short Program. In the Free Skate Xue stepped out of the throw triple loop, but she and Hongbo completed the rest of their elements very strongly in a moving and dramatic performance to music from "The Soong Sisters." They earned 127.16 points in the Free Skate, and overall scored a total of 193.54 points in the competition. The silver medalists at Cup of China were their teammates Zhang and Zhang, and the bronze medalists were the Canadian Champions Marcoux and Buntin. For complete results, click here.
