Career

Song started skating at age six. His parents put him in skating to improve his health.[1][2] He lives and trains at Beijing's Capital Gymnasium Sports Complex, which includes dormitories.[1]

In his final season as a junior, Song two junior Grand Prix medals, a silver and a gold, to qualify for the 2009–10 Junior Grand Prix Final. He finished second to Yuzuru Hanyu in both the Junior Grand Prix Final and the 2010 Junior Worlds.

Song turned senior in 2010–11; his best result in his first senior season was a bronze medal at the 2011 Asian Winter Games. In the 2011-12 season, Song won a bronze medal at the 2011 Cup of China and the silver medal at the 2011 Trophee Eric Bompard. He was the first alternate for the Grand Prix Final.[1]

Song withdrew from the 2012 Cup of China after sustaining a concussion in a collision with American skater Adam Rippon a minute into the final warm up before the free skate.[3][4] Song was kept in the hospital overnight for observation.[3] Although 14 days rest was recommended,[5] Song decided to compete at his next assignment, the 2012 Trophee Eric Bompard, finishing 5th. Song then won the gold medal at the 2013 Chinese Championships.

In the 2013–14 season, Song won gold at the 2013 Winter Universiade.
