SAITAMA (Xinhua) -- Chinese star figure skater Jin Boyang took the ice for the first time at the Saitama worlds in his morning practice here on Monday.

Jin, 21, who arrived at Tokyo on Sunday afternoon with the Chinese national team, showed at the Saitama Super Arena in his scheduled practice time and looked in quite good form.

"I feel good," said the two-time world bronze medallist. "I am more confident now. I hope I can keep my form and perform two good programs."

Jin had been struggling for form earlier the season, but found his pace back and took a silver in the Four Continents Figure Skating Championships in February.

"I focused on improving my jumps and adjusting my physical conditions in recent days to prepare for the worlds," said Jin, who finished fourth at the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Games. "I hope I can give my best in the competition."

The Saitama world championships, which runs from March 18 to 24, will start competition on Wednesday.
