    French Masters

    I figured I may as well start a thread, since it's this week.

    Here's the list of participants that the FFSG put up a while ago. It seems a bit out of date: Candice Didier is apparently out with an injury, Kim Lucine may have retired (?) and AFAIK Findlay/Richaud have split. The media guide is here, with what I assume is a more recent list.

    What exactly is French Masters? Wikipedia is being unhelpful.

    It's an early-season national competition for French skaters. This is where they usually show their programs for the first time and I think it's used for monitoring their progress by the federation.

    Starting orders have been posted. Looks like they'll have very few senior ladies... lots of juniors, though.

    SP scores and reports from Passion Patinage:

    Pairs: James/Bonheur 46.55, Canac/Coia 44.79 (she fell on the SBS jump), Chataigner/Bouzzine 39.80.

    Men: Amodio 75.87, Joubert 75.79 (bad landing on the 4T? no combo), Preaubert 75.53, Ponsero 70.02 (a mistake on the quad I think). Apparently everybody made mistakes but Florent made the fewest .

    There are also some practice photos. Gotta love Nathalie's boots.

    ETA: competition pictures.

    That was fast! I thought it'll be just over now ...
    Anyway, the three men are tight at the top - it's going to be interesting tomorrow. And I hope Brian keeps his cool.

    And while I'm on the fashion police business, what's with Ponsero's outfit?

    Compared to Plushenko's first competition: 95.05

    Wasn't it a different scoring system for Plushenko's comp?
    Not that Plushenko's jumps weren't awesome, of course, but I'm not sure the results are comparable.

    Yannick was never known for his great fashion sense. I liked Alban's, though.

    Other than that, even taking into account the fact that it's French skaters, who by definition are voidy, the costumes are just beyond bizarre.

    Re Brian, I think he may have gotten too fixated on the new LP and his concentration and focus suffered. But who knows.

    museksk8r, surely you wouldn't marry Fabian with him dressed like that, and in such dire need of a haircut .
