Stupid google translator.
Why do you say that?
Pernelle Carron confirmed today to me that she and Lloyd Jones are now training in Deeside under Marika Humphreys-Baranova.
She said that after the last season they analyzed what the need to improve and decided to work with Marika in order to bring a fresh view to their preparation. They are very happy with their new training environment.
That's great for them .I hope Marika can give them some good programmes if she is going to choreograph for them . I'm sure being a technical specialist she can help them with their levels .Carron and Lloyd look great together I hope they have a better season .
Good luck to them
Training in a single rink facility in the UK with patch ice open to beginners, daytime ice full of public skaters? Is this really the sort of environment for that level of skater to train in? Why dont they go the full way and skate for the UK as well
Never when I watch them.
Yeah I am a bit .
Marika is probably the toughest ISU Technical Specialist out there and she might be able to help them on the levels (something that Linichuk has been totally failing at ).
What about choreography though?
Oh come on, I like them. They are not THAT bad.
I think choreography is their least worry at the moment. the training conditions might be a more serious problem.
At least their programs sound a lot better than what they had last year according to some journalists over here.
I have a doubt about a coach's name, in some skaters profiles i have found a Claudine Lucine and in others a Claudie Lucine, is this just a typical ISU spelling mistake or are they two different people?
She is Didier Lucine's wife.
And according to her facebook and Annecy's website, it's Claudie.
But the mistake is all over the internet.
Thanks I'm cleaning up the database on my site and these mistakes pop-up every now and then, I really wish the ISU (and other federations) had a better system to present names. I didn't know Viktoria Volchkova's married name was Butsaeva for example... And I'm also trying to figure out if Josée Normand and Josée Picard are different people. Argh to married names.
You reap what you saw.
I need your help.
1. I got a bit lost in results of French skaters at Nationals. Am I right that Anaïs Ventard is two time junior National champion?
I found these results:

2. Any chance that someone can contribute for the article her photo in one of her costumes from last season? (I think, she had them for two seasons actually, so might be also from 2010-11)
Thank you in advance!
Entries for Masters are here http://www.ffsg.org/salle_de_presse...2_Selection_Masters_Orleans_2012_au090812.pdf
Ilyushechkina/Kocon are listed, hopefully they get to skate.
There's a 'si release' next to their names (as well as Safronova/Allain's).
Which would indicate a release is needed? Strange as it's a national event so ISU rules need not apply.
On the French forum, someone posted that Yretha Silete had a bad injury after colliding with Romain Ponsart in practice. He says that she may need surgery and she is probably out for the Masters. I am just translating what I red. We'll get more precisions this weeks since the first JGP is in France this week.
What article are you referring to ? Are you looking for pictures to illustrate an article ?
Yes. And I already got permission to use photos from here:
Do you happen to have her photos? Because photos from her short might help me too.
For what medium/media do you need these pictures ? I co-own a website and the pictures we have are copyrighted (done by a pro photographer who's the co-owner). They can be used in other medias if they're linked to us and the author is cited, but we need to know what kind of article they will illustrate first. Pls contact me by PM !
????? Must have clicked on something by mistake cause until now I could receive about anything from anyone, including unwanted crap I'm going to correct this right away
Edited : done ! (I have no recollection of choosing to receive messages from contacts and admins only but well, must have done something wrong while using my smartphone or while typing without my glasses on...)
Yretha Silete had knee surgery on Monday to repair an ACL tear. Looks like the MCL and meniscus were also repaired. The French fed just issued a press release.
She is hoping to be back for the Olympic season.
Thanks! Link to the French press release: http://www.ffsg.org/salle_de_presse...CP_280812_Operation_reussie_Yretha_Silete.pdf
I had no idea Silete had suffered such a serious injury, that really sucks - as we saw with Dai, it's a tough one to come back from and a long road before returning to full strength. I hope her recovery goes according to plan so that she can make it in time for next season.
This is very sad news Just when she started to progress.
Since I managed to tear my own ACL & partially tear the MCL and meniscus of the same knee, it's definitely a long-term injury. Once other ligaments start being affected, it's probably best to have surgery as soon as possible because you start doing all sorts of strange things to over-compensate for the lack of stability.
Fingers crossed for a full recovery for Yretha!
Here's an article about Pechalat & Bourzat's costume designer with a picture. I believe it's thier SD costume for this season.
