    http://www.lanouvellerepublique.fr/T...EUX-DE-JOUBERT

    Some news about Joubert:
    -he took a 3 week break, except some light running
    -he is keeping the same SP, but will skate the long to Inception
    -he will be in Courchevel with the French team for the last 2 weeks of July
    - the Poitiers rink is closing and he will share his time between 3 rinks in Niort, Tours and Paris. Patrick Gueppe, one of his coaches, is in Tours. Guyon is at another rink in Chatellerault, but Brian does not want to go there, because the rink is too small. He still wants to work with Veronique though. In Paris, he will train with Annick Dumont's group.
    - This season is important but not major for him (Not sure how to properly translate "capitale"). He will get a lighter competition schedule (Not sure if he is talking about the GP, the French masters/Nationals, or Senior Bs, but I am afraid he means GP)

    Reports elsewhere have indicated that Joubert will rework the SP with DenStavs - I'd prefer for him to get a new one entirely, but considering how unsettled his training situation is going to be, I'll cut him some slack. It sounds like it's going to be a serious hassle it until they complete the new rink in Poitiers.

    Joubert has also said somewhere else, I think in a video interview, that he really wants to qualify for the GPF so that he can skate in Sochi this coming season. I don't think he plans on skipping his GPs.

    Ok, I'll give it a try but that's not my favorite exercise!

    Journalist:
    “What happened?”

    Nathalie: “I don’t know. You should ask Fabian. Where is he?! (…) Of course I’m angry. Had it happened at a grand prix event, it wouldn’t be the same..Here for the first time we had a shot to medal, and we missed it.”

    Voiceover: “Forget it. NP & FB won’t medal at the world championships, at least not this year.”

    Fabian:
    “It was mostly my fault, and I can’t say I’m proud of this.”

    Nathalie: “You know it happens sometimes, that’s sports. I’m not blaming him. The thing is, we had a great season, and we’re ending it on this.. ”

    Voiceover: “Tonight, Chaplin made people cry and the city lights made room for ‘darkness’. Third after the short dance, NP & FB seemed to float. 2’11 of happiness in another world, before crashing back on Earth. One fall on their footwork sequence. One fall and it was all over. Too many points lost. The podium just slipped away.”

    Journalist: “When you fall, what’s going through your mind?”

    Fabian: “You feel like swearing”.

    Nathalie: “Well, you actually want to wake up from that nightmare.”
    Fabian: “You try to pull yourself together immediately but you know it’s over.”
    Nathalie: “No, when you make a mistake on a circular (step sequence) or any technical element, you know it’s done.”

    Voiceover: “Yet, NP & FB conclude their program with dignity and beauty but they rank 4th, just off the podium.”

    Nathalie: “It’s gonna be very difficult to get through the next two days. At the Europeans, it was just bliss. Here, it’s gonna be tough to wake up tomorrow and come to terms with it.”

    Voiceover: “Reigning world champions, and winners of two grand prix events, NP & FB just missed their first world podium, when they had a real shot at it.”

    Nathalie:
    “We’ve had a great season and now we’re finishing it on this. That’s tough to accept. I have the feeling that somehow it erases all the great performances we’ve given this season.”

    Joubert: “You have to accept it. Deal with it.”

    Voiceover: “The French team leaves Moscow exactly as in 2005…without any medal.”

    But it isn't clear yet that the Russian Fed will release her... Well, I just hope she has a good career with Kocon.

    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

    Wink

    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

    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?

    I think choreography is their least worry at the moment. the training conditions might be a more serious problem.
