    China now has three pairs of the world's top figure skaters, namely Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo, Pang Qing and Tong Jian, and Zhang Dan and Zhanghao. All of the three pairs come from Heilongjiang and hold world championship titles or Grand Prix honors.The Chinese figure skaters arrived in Vancouver, the host of the 21st Winter Olympics, on the early Monday morning. The team will make final preparations for the competitions in the Canadian city.

    The Chinese delegation to the Vancouver Winter Olympics hopes that the pairs of figure skaters could help bring home the first ever figure skating Olympic gold medal.

    The figure skating team is the last part of the Chinese delegation to arrive in the host city. The organizing committee of the Vancouver Winter Olympics set up an accreditation center at the airport to carry an easier entry and registration services to athletes, coaches, officials and journalists from all over the world.

    It only takes less than 30 seconds for staff to complete each accreditation application.

    Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo, three-time figure skating World Champions, said before their departure to Canada that it will be sad if they fail to win an Olympic gold medal in their career. They said that this was the major reason they made a come back in 2009 after their retirement in 2007.

    On February 16th, the three Chinese figure skating pairs will go to the rink to compete against other world's top skaters.
