    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.

    Who spread stupid rumours on N. Pechalat/F. Bourzat's retirement? They are not retiring but will prepare for Worlds.

    According to FSU, someone from French federation did confirm that Fabian's recovering with no problem and P/B will be prepared by Worlds.

    I thought they were going to world's; I think they want an olympic medal and orginally it looked like they were going to be past by two or three Russians, another Canadian and American teams as well as the Italians. Now it looks like they will hold on to the world bronze and maybe eek out a medal at oly's. They ahve had some orignial programs and such but never quality wise been my favourite team. I hope they don't have to retire due to injury that's for sure. But they seem to be in way better shape than Weaver and Poje. Things may work out that the Italians and Russians can capture this opportunity.

    If that's the case it's weird that someone close to Tomas would give this kind of false information. And even if it would have been true, it's still wrong.
