China’s Sui Wenjing and Han Cong scored 155.47 points for a total of 239.88 to win the gold medal in the free skating pairs event at the Beijing Winter Olympics tonight.The Russian Olympic team was ranked 2-4, with Tarasova/Morozov, Mishina/Galiyamov and Boykova/Kozlovsky respectively.Another Chinese pair of Peng Cheng and Jin Yang finished fifth with 214.84 points.In 2007, Sui and Han were paired by luan Bo, then a famous figure skating coach, to start their pairs skating career.To tell the story of Han Cong and Sui Wenjing, injuries at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics are an unavoidable story.On the eve of the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, Sui Wenjing developed fatigue periostitis in her right foot.In the pre-match training, Sui Wenjing originally “slide step all pain” of the right foot suddenly aggravated to the heartbreaking pain.Han Cong asked her how much it hurt on a scale of 1 to 10. She clenched her teeth and “underreported the number”, only saying that it was about 8 or 9 points.Although sui’s injured foot was so swollen that no bones could be seen before the short program, she didn’t let anyone see that she was injured during the competition.But it was under such circumstances that Sui wenjing took painkillers to go on the free skating competition.She carried The pain and Han Cong to win a silver medal.They finished 0.43 points behind the German champions Savishenko and Marcelo.Defeated at such a disadvantage, Sui Wenjing could not help but regret tears.After returning to China, Sui wenjing was diagnosed with a stress fracture of the second metatarsal bone in her right foot, requiring weight-reduction for six to eight weeks and wearing stress-relieving shoes on both feet.As a result, the pair missed most of the 2019-19 season.In April 2020, han Cong was replaced by han Cong.He underwent hip surgery.The two have supported each other through the trials and tribulations of injuries, big and small.With that experience, you can see why they chose The Golden Bridge over Troubled River this season.They used the same repertoire when they won the 2017 World Championships.”We used this program in 2017, when Sui Wenjing had surgery. I had to wait for her to return to the ice rink and give her support and strength like a bridge.Sui became my bridge when I had the operation.”And select the two tracks, and care for the moment for epidemic plagued the cause of the world: “in the current moment like this, there may be many miles apart can’t see each other, hope can through our programs to give people the power of the” bridge “, let everybody can sense the beauty of figure skating the sport at the same time, also can feel our support for you.””We hope that through our programs, we can build a bridge with the audience and with everyone, so that there is a strength in everyone’s heart and we can be more united and fight against difficulties together.”But the old songs had to be highlighted once again, so they worked out a whole new program with Canadian choreographer Laurie, with a lot of attention paid to lifting, spirals and other details, incorporating many new elements.Among them, “twist throw jump around” became the bright spot this time.This is extremely difficult, and the “green bucket combination” was tried in the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, but no international athletes have used it so far.In addition to the twist and throw around, the pair have previously revealed on social media how to perform a triple twist and triple jump.Both moves were well interpreted in the competition.The final margin of 0.63 points also proved that beating Russia’s three difficult and artistically expressive pairs would be no easy feat if it were not for the audacity of the artisans.
