I'm not going to lie, at first I thought this was utterly ridiculous. But the more I think about it, the more intrigued I am. I think Marina (and hopefully Gwendal as I'm still not sure if he even knows what's going on) may just want to compete in Sochi just to show the audience and possibly the other skaters what old school (My God, the late 90s and early 2000s are old school) ice dance is all about. If they some how qualify for Sochi...well, that just shows the lack of depth of French Ice Dancing or at least...the depths the Federation will go to to make this happen.
I think it'd be quite fun to see now. Many people are complaining that COP has killed the dancing out of ice dancing...let's see if Marina and Gwendal can bring it back from like 20th place.
