Boyang Jin CHN
2018 Four Continents short program
We know he can entertain the crowd with Spiderman. It had become the program that he was known for because of the sheer enjoyment he had and the projection to the crowd. But it was his Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon short last season that really brought out the musically-sensitive side of Boyang Jin.
This performance of it at Four Continents was particularly noteworthy because he was just recovering from ankle injuries that plagued him during his second Grand Prix at Skate America. And after taking time off to recover, we really didn’t know how he would fare going into the Olympics.
But he delivered - and this intense performance was, for me, his finest work to date.
