    I would love to see Candice Didier also at TEB instead of Gilleron-Gorry

    Does they can replace Gilleron-Gorry by Didier at this point ?

    After all, at french master 2013, Candice have beat Lenaëlle, she would deserve more the TEB spot in my opinion :

    Senior Ladies

    1 Maé Bérénice MEITE 92.90 44.49 50.41 6.50 6.17 6.17 6.25 6.42 2.00 #3
    2 Candice DIDIER 82.04 39.16 43.88 5.75 5.17 5.42 5.67 5.42 1.00 #2
    3 Lénaëlle GILLERON - GORY 74.94 35.08 41.86 5.67 5.00 5.08 5.33 5.08 2.00 #

    Overall

    2 Candice DIDIER 133.79 2 2
    3 Lénaëlle GILLERON - GORY 126.67 3 3

    So far Gilleron-Gorry is still on the list of entries and Didier is not.

    Knowing the French Fed, they won't replace her. But they definitely should. Didier has beaten Gilleron-Gorry twice so it's only fair.

    Although the FFSG has been known to engage in various shenanigans with skaters' assignments, a GP assignment, once given, is meant to be final (barring medical problems and the like). It is not supposed to be taken away because another skater might have skated well in early season events. That's what TBD spots are for.

    My understanding is that Silete had surgery again a few months ago. I don't know where things stand with her recovery.

    Isn't there that Mete lady anyways? sorry I don't remember her name at all. Didier has it tough if she wants to go to the olympics but I understand people have dreams.

    "That Mete lady" is really disrespectful to Maé Bérénice Méité, even if you don't remember her name it's still possible to phrase things in a less dismissive way. When I'm not sure of a skater's precise name, I check Wikipedia for events they would have competed in. Méité was 11th at Worlds and recently finished 6th at Skate America with a score of 167.35, which I believe was a PB and puts her well ahead of the other French ladies. Some people felt she was undermarked, and she's improving; I could see her score higher by the end of the season. I'd be very surprised if anyone else gets the Olympic ticket.
