    French Nationals Dec. 18-20

    French Nationals will be held this weekend in Marseilles.

    Brian Joubert will make a decision regarding his participation at the last moment. DelSchoes are definitely not competing but may take part in the gala. I have read that Pechalat/Bourzat may be out as well, but that there hasn't been official confirmation of this. Candice Didier failed to qualify for Nats and is the first alternate. The poor girl, she's had awful luck in 2009.

    ETA: Brian has made his decision; he will not compete this weekend.

    I think it's a good decision for Brian not to compete; he just had surgery! How did Candice Didier fail to qualify? She had awful luck at 2009 Worlds! That was some early-warm-up-group-excitement when she fell and hit her head!

    What does it mean when they say next to the name "WR 1," "WR 2," etc.?

    I think it's an excellent decision for Brian to skip this event. I don't understand why it was even considered.

    Re Candice Didier, I read on FSU that she was injured a few months ago and only did one event, where she totally bombed. Because invites to Nats are based on scoring during this season, she can't go - even though she's the defending champion!

    Very sad.. Was it Nebelhorn that she bombed at? So she can't go to the Olympics? Does France even have an Oly spot in Ladies?

    I don't think that France has got an Olympic spot in the ladies event - as far as I remember, they have two in the mens, two in the dance & one in the pairs.

    France will not have a lady at the Olympics. Gwendolyn Didier took Candice's place at Nebelhorn a few months ago when the latter was injured, but she did not place high enough to earn a spot. France might be listed as having an alternate - I can't recall - but not a highly placed one. Sheena is correct about the other disciplines, so basically pairs is a big battle and there are three French guys competing for one spot (Joubert does not have to qualify).

    Candice Didier skated at the Coupe de Nice, and scored beneath 100 in both segments combined .

    France has only 2 spots in Men??? Oh I thought it was 3?! Wow, that is tough! Who's it going to be... Préaubert, Ponsero or Amodio... I personally think Préaubert should go; as far as I've seen him compete, he's slightly more consistent than the others! Will French Nats be the deciding factor or Euros?

    The guy choosing the camera angles for this is really annoying me. Preaubert changed his costume. Definitely an audience favourite.
