I've been reading the TEB competition coverage on IceNetwork and I must say I really like the sense of humor and candor of the special correspondent.
The titles of his articles crack me up!!
"Virtue and Moir win to surprise of no one"
"Chan underachieves but still throttles competition"
"Short dance shocker! Virtue and Moir triumph"
I also like that he's not afraid to state his opinion and critique even the champions and the judging in the events. Usually the writers are so polite and politically correct. I find it refreshing.
really? because i found that icenetwork's latest article on v/m simultaneously ignores and undermines their accomplishments at TEB. whether this guy is claiming how bored he is that v/m have won or he's making unsubstantiated claims that v/m don't deserve their marks, it's not refreshing or humorous. i doubt he would give the american champions the same flippant treatment.
Well, he is a French journalist writing for an American network. So I don't think he has any particular interest in puffing up V&M. He probably hoped the French team would have scored a little higher.
he didn't need to gush in order to write a respectful article.
IIRC, Berlot was mentioned in the recent interview with Karine Arribert, I think in the context of his interest/involvement in ice ballet.
