TEAM FRANCE rooters' seats, "Let's cheer for team France!"
Goooood morning, everyone!
I got up this morning and sudddenly found myself so excited. Less than a week till the Worlds!
Though I have never reprsented my country, not only in a sport event but any other areas in my whole life, I can easily imagine there is nothing like hosting and participating in the big sport events; such as Worlds and/or Olympic Games at home country.
While local athletes can get HUUGE supports from the audience, it would be harder for them to compete under tremendous pressure by its ferederation and huge expectations from the people.
I sincerely hope ALL the participants from Team France will do really well at the upcoming Worlds in Nice, and succeed (=get a certain satisfactory result) in their own way.

Deedee, I believe ice dancers P&B have withdrawn. Was there a change?
No. They are still listed on the latest update by ISU.

Off the ice
Fairness is a non-issue here: the FFSG did not list a substitute team, so even if P/B withdraw, no one can take their place. But Nathalie's latest update sounds encouraging, so hopefully we will see them in Nice in great form!
