Annick Dumont just has NOT aged a bit...or has aged extremely well. The woman is superbly Radiant!
Like a fine Beaujalois.

Swindlers and embezzlers won't pass the "secret défense" enquiry of 8 months prior entering that school.
You can't pass that enquiry if you haven't paid your taxes for example.
And those staying in the ENA administrative path are not swindlers and embezzlers : they learn how to play by the law I wish I could have done it, but way too much law to get there !

"I missed the view and viewed the mist..." ©
I agree, still, the ENA is impressive because of the level required to enter the school, not for the potential of being honest.
cholla : I got your point. That's why I said "they learn how to play by the law". I should have said "around the law" and not by
And yes, Piton's just coming out FROM the ENA meaning that prior entering there three or four years ago, he went through the inquiry process. Thus it means he was perfectly honest while at Eurosport or he wouldn't have passed the barrier.
As for Enarques being honest ... I'd rather pass
Just look at how many enter politics to change their hearts every two weeks
ANy word on James and Coia, still Kaput?
All I know is that Maximin was on holiday last week ...
Here is a small reportage about Yann Cucherat, the gymnast and mainly about his and his training center's collaboration with the ice dance center of Lyon to improve lifts and mastery of the growing acrobatic part of ice dance.
Pernelle Carron is interviewed and in the background are Lloyd Jones, Neil Brown and the italian pair Stefania Berton / Ondrej Hotarek.
Thanks Poths! Looking nice indeed.
For the work slaves who don't have facebook access at work...what's on the video?
The french fed has confirmed one pair in its latest bulletin (published in the last few days) : Canac and Bonheur.
And they are training in Indianapolis with Sergei Zaitsev.
There are news about several skaters' summer plans but none about Coia or James.
OTOH, Vanessa James has been elected within the federal council (along with Zoé Blanc and Surya Bonaly) at the last general assembly.
About summer plans, we already know about Joubert (Urmanov, Courchevel, Canada) and Amodio (Morozov and Méribel with his coach).
Besseghier who should start GPs next season is in Detroit with Camerlengo.
Méité has spent the begining of July in Spain (I don't know which summer camp was organized there) and will train at La Roche sur Yon with Candice Didier (there are rumors of coach change for her but I hope the temporary situation will stay just that (temporary), because La Roche means Bercy ). Blanc / Bouquet will spend some time with Linichuk. Péchalat / Bourzat are in Latvia in camp Zhulin. I also think they will train in France at some point like last season.
All the other top junior dancers will be in Lyon Charlemagne. The girls of Annecy (Marrocco) will stay with their coaches in Méribel and Annecy. The Champigny boys will stay in Courchevel with their coach. Silété and Ciprès will stay with their coach too. 75% of the french skaters (and a lot of italians) might actually be in the Alps this summer (as usual).
(that's actually the moment when you can see who the fed is pushing because there is no enveloppe thing. Gailhaguet invests in those he wants to push and sends them abroad during the summer, and this year, it's Joubert, Amodio, Besseghier - there is always a big imbalance between girls and boys - , one pair, Péchalat / Bourzat and this year Blanc / Bouquet (usually Lyon -and dance- is on its own) ).

About the JGP, the juniors will have short camps after which the fed should decide about the selections.
They will be held in Chambéry in Savoie (chollaaaa, that's for you).
July 24-25 for ice dance
July 31- August 1st for figure skating
So the selections for the first or first two GPJs will probably be decided according to last season's results.
Besseghir is the guy with the great jumps, isn't he? He really lacked artistry last time I saw him but his jumps were wow. So great news that he is working with Carmelengo!!
