    Happy to see Preaubert in second place! I would like him to get another trip to worlds (Amodio is not a favourite of mine).

    No comment really on dance, 'cause it's what's expected, I guess.

    I've never heard of the girl in first..

    I also forgot Yannick Bonheur had a new partner.

    The girl in first was new (I think?) to the JGP this season. She did quite well, too.

    I checked Joubert's fan site for info. Not much there but someone who was there described that Joubert "retourne" his quad but did well with the other jumps including the 3A. "Retourner" usually means reverse but I don't know how that applies to FS jumps. UR?

    Amodio fell on his 3A and stopped during his step sequence, taking a long time to return to his program - I feel this refers to both faults but am not sure.

    When I looked at the scores, I was most impressed with Preaubert. Turned out he was actually impressive. He skated a flawless program and was extremely happy.

    eta Someone wrote that Florent fell on his 3A and on his step sequence, taking a long time to continue his program. This sounds like he fell twice, but I wouldn't bet on a posting sentence.

    Is there a youtube up on Joubert?

    The first 4ladies, I didn't know exist.

    This is good for Florent to not pay much attenion to his coach's whimsical experiments but demand another choreographer. Bumps and Grinds are l950s wows. They were bad then, and worse now.

    There is grumbling about Florent, with 2 falls, being overscored compared with Chafik.

    I would not be surprised. Higly unlikely Chaffik has a chance to get into the top 3, which is a ticket to Euros.

    According to this article, Amodio fell on his flip and step sequences:

    I am not surprised at all that Florent with 2 falls is placed above Chafik, even though the latter landed all jumps. I was at TEB, where Chafik nailed all jumps in SP including quad toe-triple toe, but Florent was superior in everything else - skating skills, flow, speed, spins, step sequences, interpretation, projection, etc. Chafik is a promising skater, but, as he took up figure skating relatively late, he needs a few more years to be a well-rounded skater, IMHO.

    Glad Brian held it together. Euros and the Worlds will not be the same without him!

    Also happy that Alban skated well, it seems. I do like both of his programmes this season.

    French fed probably knows at his best he can do better than Preaubert at Euros and Worlds so they probably don't want to take him out of it. He can still beat Preaubert if he skates well tomorrow, the scores he put up on the GP were very impressive.

    All top 3 will go to Euros, that is not really in question that one of them will be left out. Worlds is another story, they have only 2 spots, but then there will be the Euros result which will copunt as well.
