    Otherwise, we will kidnap Ivan Bukin or Jonathan Guerreiro.

    Bukin is a bit short; Guerreiro is tall, I believe; both are very talented.

    And both could use better partners.

    They could - also Guerreiro's English is very good. And the couple could choose to skate for Australia, if the French Fed gets too annoying.

    Like with Chan, it's probably one of his three mother tongues

    Exactly. I would not be surprised to hear that he speaks Portuguese as well. If you're going for an international partner, ability to learn languages has got to be a consideration.

    on French TV lately, a short report about all the works the Bercy arena will face for 17 months.
    the last comment was that the arena will reopen between october and december this year.

    So, another hint TEB 2014 may take place in Paris afterall.

    This interview of Pechalat/Bourzat is about preconceived ideas in figure skating.
    http://www.20minutes.fr/sport/129448...chalat-bourzat

    Here is the quote from Nathalie that surprised me to say the least:
    Question: You have to be effeminate (the journalist probably implies in figure skating/ice dancing)
    Answer from Nathalie:
    "Not at all. In ice dance, there needs to be a cohesion between the man and the woman. If the guy is more effeminate than the woman, nobody wants to see that. Personally, I hate that. We want to see a masculine man that does his work. Whether he has an artistic touch, does not mean that he is effeminate. It is true that there are gays in the artistic world. I think they need to show themselves. Gay doing ice skating, you can see them very quickly. They wear sequins and veils"

    I am not a professional translator, but I am pretty sure I translated the meaning of her answer properly.

    So does that mean all the figure skating men are gay? I think they are all in sequins.

    I'm not really sure what she is trying to say.

    I think she's being somewhat tongue in cheek in the last line, and saying that you can see whether a skater gay because they're more flamboyant. Or she's stating that the gay skaters aren't afraid to be flamboyant and that more gays in the artistic world (not only skating) should show themselves/be open?

    I honestly can't tell.

    Is this a mock interview by any chance? Or maybe they were being really sarcastic in their answers, because honestly, even if my french is limited, I don't imagine either of them using that kind of language and phrasing to talk about those subjects.

    I wish it was a joke but its not. They were asked to comment on stereotypes in skating. They sounded overly defensive and bordeline homophobic unfortunately. Candeloro and Joubert say similar things all the time. The frozen closet article could have been written in France too. I expected better from the captain of the French team.

    They wear sequins and veils
    What she is quoted as saying is: "Ils ont les voiles et les paillettes."

    "Les voiles" could mean "veils," but it could also mean "flashes" or "sails." In this context, I really don't think it's "veils" or "sails."

    "Les paillettes" literally means sequins, but "Ils ont les paillettes" means "They glitter."

    I think what she is saying is "They flash and glitter." And I don't think she literally means that you can tell a guy is gay because he wears sequins. Quite a few flamboyantly straight male skaters wear sequins.

    She's nuts, though, but that's a different matter.

    Could les voiles be illusion fabric?
