Off the ice
Brian Joubert out of the GPF
Or so it would appear based on this (in French, Google translation here); it's a foot injury that might keep him out of French nationals as well. According to the report, it's similar to what happened in 2007 (spiking the blade into his foot). Back then, he won Worlds a few weeks later... hopefully he'll have good results this season, too. Get well soon, Brian!
Tomas Verner was the first alternate, IIRC.
ETA: moderators - the "apparently" should be taken out of the thread title as it's been confirmed by the FFSG.

Sorry to hear that.
Wishing Brian a speedy recovery.
Oh that is sad, i was hoping for him to have good competition, and win the whole thing. Hopefully he will recover in time for Nationals and Europeans.

leave no stone unturned
oh no, I m really sorry B, honestly. It sucks in Olympic season to get distracted by injuries. That is serious? I was hoping for a grand battle in gpf, without jouby now it will be a quadless final.. But at least now he rests and he comes back for the big competitions!
Dont be sad B.
Off the ice
You're so nice! I'm hoping it'll turn out okay - just like in 2007 except with an Olympic gold!
