    Joubert Wins French Test Skate

    From a reliable source in France... no details on the free skate yet but with the win, Joubert was selected for the World Championships over Alban Preaubert.

    More details will end up here if I get them before the articles.

    It will be interesting to see WHY Brian won. I'm happy for him and hope for a great fighting comeback at Worlds.

    Joubert is really struggling with the 3Lz now. Could it be mental block since it's the same jump that he got injured practicing in December.

    How did a falling Brian beat a clean Alban? I'm confused.

    I think the poster said it was just a preliminary/unconfirmed report. But we do have to remember this is the French federation.........

    Confirmed, two hours later.

    And Wicked- there are so many more components to skating than just falling on a jump vs. skating clean! I can see the frustration in the system, but you have to look at the whole picture rather than the most obvious stuff.

    Maybe I don't understand the point of a test skate. I actually do understand CoP and that you can fall and still win. But I thought the point of having this test skate was to see how the skaters, mainly Brian, held up under the pressure of having to do their programs before French federation judges. If I were them, Brian having a fall in each of his programs would be a concern to me. Or is the point of a test skate just to outscore the other guy like in any other competition?

    If the jumps he fell on were fully rotated, he would have only lost 4 points for each off them, plus a fall on a fully rotated 4t is equal in points value to a landed 3t, so where Joubert probably had a more difficult program planned than Preaubert, even with the falls, when you take into account his PCS that were likely significantly higher, he still could have fairly won the competition.

    The French federation wouldn't dare not to let Joubert go. That's all. Any way, I am very happy that Joubert could go.

    So are the other skaters as it gives them a better chance

    Just kidding and I wish baby boy Joubert good luck and hope he skates his best - whatever that is

    A dirty Joubert trumps a clean Preaubert every time.
