More results...Some French Nats results...
MBM skated a clean SP yesterday and an okay FS today and won her FIFTH National title! Congrats Máe!
And Kévin is leading after the SP by a 20-point margin!
While his score (95.40) might be just a liiiiiiittle bit inflated, I'm actually fine with that, and his K&C reaction is priceless so YAY KÉVIN!!!
Also Vanessa & Morgan skated a clean SP yesterday (for the first time this season, I guess?) and got 82.70, while P/C just skated their RD (85.89,
no video yet)
EDIT: now there's video, but this is one of those events where the camera people don't want us to see what the skaters' feet/blades are doing, so good luck to anybody wanting to take a closer look at that TR pattern :/
Or even three if they both place high enough at the final standings. That would be great as it would be good to someone younger to have a chance to compete at Euros as well.Laurine and Mae are both in the top 10 after the Ladies' SP at Europeans, and Laurine is in the final group for the FS! If they can keep this up France may have two places at Euros next year.
The bronze was oh so close -- less than a point away -- but honestly, Rizzo did deserve it with that great FS.Aymoz 4th
It was encouraging to see that even though this was not the best he's skated In This Shirt, his PCS seem to be on the rise (84.92). Making it to the last FS group really paid off in that respect...“I am proud of myself, because I fought to the end even if it was difficult,” said the two-time French national champion. “I was more prepared for the short program than the free. The aim was to be in the last group for this competition, which I was, so I don’t regret anything. There were a few errors but it is all positive for the time being, even with the errors, it’s all good.”
“Skaters are not just jumps, but they are about complete skating. There are some skaters I have seen, like this boy (Kevin Aymoz, FRA) who I see are like this and I am proud of them, it is unbelievable. I hope I have left something like that on figure skating.”
The Worlds team info is out, no surprises there (Laurine, Kévin, J/C, P/C, L/LG):
JWC team (looks like it's still TBD whether Serna or Kuzmenko gets the ladies' spot):
Almost half of the junior men are now coached by Joubert. Le May has huge athletic potential but his jump technique needs major work. Collet did the 2017 JGP but his club of Nice has been having tough times.Do they not have another junior man with minimums to be a reserve?! I remember there was no one else on the JGP even, which I thought seemed strange at the time. Or do they have someone but choose not to send them?
thank you! That makes me happy, I still love Brian Nice to see he is doing well, and that his loyalty to Poitiers even got the rink named after him...Almost half of the junior men are now coached by Joubert.

I too find the lack of JWC alternates and JGP participants pretty weird. I just checked the EYOF jr men entries and there's nobody from France there, either. (During jr ladies SP a couple of hours ago, Oceane Piegad skated a pretty nice short and got 41.99 points and 11th place.)Do they not have another junior man with minimums to be a reserve?!
