"This, after all, is opera, opera in New York, not some dainty pastime like professional hockey..." -- Chip Brown, NYT Magazine 24 Mar 13
Apparently Florent Amodio has new programs (at least, so says his FB fan page). There was no specific information given, but just about anything is bound to be an improvement over what he was doing, right?

I have heard that it is official Elektra and Benn have been selected by the French Federation to go to the Junior World Championship. What a great way to end your junior season. Dance on...........
Congratulation to Elektra & Benjamin!
Moving the discussion from the Russian skating thread here.
After the very disappointing last season, Carron/Jones have apparently jumped ship and left Linichuk & Karponosov and moved to the UK.
I think there's only Marika Humphreys Baranov coaching there, but I am not sure at all.
Maybe a UK poster could tell us.
Maybe they just gave up and settled in the UK?
So to sum up the French skaters' off-season so far, Gwendolyn Didier is now skating for Serbia, C/J have moved to a mystery coach in the UK, Amodio is shooting a movie and Joubert is doing a TV show (Fort Boyard again) and an Averbukh show (in Astana), and P/B will have a Rolling Stones FD. Have I missed anything?
