Even though the Courchevel results index page says "Please note that the result pages are only updated at the end of the competition day", the CD (Starlight Waltz) results are online already:
Results index page with starting orders, schedule & other info:
Godd start for Hubbell and Hubbell.
Interesting SP results. Canadian Ten beat out US Kanallakan. Wagner beat out Hyatt. Comp Dance: Russia, USA, France, Canada in that order.
I've heard some good things about Jeremy Ten, who's the '06 Canadian junior silver medalist and 17 years old -- link to his profile on the Skate Canada site: http://www.skatecanada.ca/en/athlete...ategory=single

Germany's Norman Keck is in 3rd after the SP. Thanks to sandra_persch for pointing me to Keck's bio page on his home club's site:
Keck is 18 going on 19 -- link to a list of all the Courchevel competitors' birthdates on the official competition site:
If you recall the Courchevel predictions thread, USA's Ashley Wagner was mentioned as having a strong summer competition at Liberty. She landed 7 triples in the Liberty Jr. FS Final back in mid-July, and was probably the favorite "on paper" coming in (though we all know that ice is slippery... and juniors are especailly unpredictable!). Here's a repost of the USFS article from June 2006 about Wagner: http://www.usfigureskating.org/Story.asp?id=34687
As was also pointed out earlier, '06 U.S. jr. champ Megan Hyatt has had a rather inconsistent summer competition season, but she reportedly skated pretty well in her Senior FS at DuPage Open earlier this month (4 triples landed?), and has a good shot at a medal here if she can skate similar FS effort after her solid SP showing today.
Looking forward to seeing what happens in the free skates tomorrow!

Thanks for the links on Ten (Canada) and Keck (Germany) - two skaters to think about in future. It should be a good JGPF.
Before the results the USFS had a blurb on Hyatt with picture and I thought she would be the favorite but you are correct about Wagner.
Now what will it all be at the Finals???
Assuming Norman get a second JGP. There are a lot off strong German man that should get spots and not enough spots.

Tischendorf - 2
Liebers P. - 2
Dotzauer - 1 (would be his first JGP ever)
Kotzian - 1
Riefert - 1 (would be his first JGP ever)
So in my book that makes 8, but we'l see what happens.
what didn't kill me-made me stronger!
Now THIS is weird!
Sofia on 5th place and some Canadian so low?! Well go go Sofi
Bronze medal for Stefania Berton (Italy)! My congratulations!!
Mens: Kanallakhan makes it to the top with Oi coming on strong. Ten held on to the podium.
Ladies: Wagner and Hyatt with Stefani Burton (Italy) in third! Spain's Lafuente in top 5!
Russia and US fighting it out in Dance.
I saw some men´s clips and was really impressed of how the skating of Lucine and Keck looked, WOW. They were such a joy to watch. I expected to be impressed by Kanallakan, but somehow he looked slow. Congratualtions for the win, anyway.
Hubbel and Hubbel win the Free Dance.
thanks for posting the results.
