    Pechalat/Bourzat Retire? - nope!

    So now we've had two sources saying that Nathalie Pechalat is going to hold a press conference in Zagreb announcing their retirement due to Fabian Bourzat's serious injury. :(

    The Sport 2 (Russian TV channel) commentator said this on air during Ladies Short Program and Arthur Verner has posted in on his website (thanks to let's talk for bringing this to our attention in the [url=http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/showthread.php?39435-2013-Europeans-Entries&p=702019&viewfull=1#post702019Europeans Entries[/url] thread).

    I have put a question mark in the topic title because we won't know for sure until the press conference takes place but there's no reason to think they are both lying, I guess.

    I feel really upset by this. They have shown original, interesting, entertaining programs for years and I really wanted them to win an Olympic medal. :(

    No, first was A. Verner who posted the said info on his site and then the R-commentator "announced" it in the broadcast. In any case the chronology doesn't matter. Both sources are nutjobs and A.Verner already deleted the said message on his site.

    Let's wait for the official annoouncement if any follows.

    All rumors are stupid. That's why they are rumors and not truths.

    Natalie did post on their Facebook before that both of them were in Lyon. I figure for training of some French skating stuff before worlds.

    Also from Pechalat/Bourzat's Facebook page today:
    Nathalie Péchalat: "Unfortunately we had to withdraw from Europeans as Fabian couldn't skate, couldn't work on the ice. But we hope to skate at Worlds, will be preparing for it. Fabian needs two more weeks before he can go on the ice again".

    Fingers crossed for them.
