    Brian to do a Test skate in order to go to Worlds

    http://www.lequipe.fr/Ski/breves2010...e-15-mars.html

    It says that on March 15th, Brian along Ponsero and Preaubert will do their SP and Fs in order to see who will go to Worlds with Amodio.

    Wow, that's just really sad, its come to this. Yes, I understand completely, but still its sad.

    This reminds me of famous actors that have fallen so much they get to the point that they have to *audition*, which in itself is a huge step down & an embarrassment.

    GOOD LUCK, BRIAN, GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!

    Wow... I'm shocked! But I guess it's necessary to send the strongest team since it decides the number of places for France for next year... Is Brian definitely retiring after this season?

    I can't read French. But I wonder why they'd do the 'test' right before the Worlds? Hasn't it decided beforehand?

    I think it had originally been decided that it would be Joubert and Amodio for both the Olympics and Worlds, but after Brian's performance at the Olympics, the committee is going to reconsider -- if the others can place better than him, they earn their place on the World Team based on their performance on said test day.

    Go Preaubert! Although it's sad for Brian, but he was abysmal at the Olympics.

    If I'm not wrong, Brian said he will stay until Worlds 2012 since they will be held in France

    There's nothing surprising about it - Brian said in vancouver that he wanted it to happen.

    Wow. I wonder how bad Brian can be before they give it to Preaubert or Ponserro. Pretty strange.
