    Chafik and Romain, respectively bronze and silver medalists of France are going to compete at Torun cup this week in Poland.
    Denis Ten of Kazakhstan also will be there as their biggest contender.

    I didn't find any French female skater on the list for ladies, so copied and pasted only the schedule for mens' discipline here.

    I like Berenice Mae for her tenacity to push herself. While not at a pretty state yet, I like how she's pushing for the Biellmann and I spin to gain the levels. Here's hoping that she'll get better by each season.

    Romain Ponsart uploaded his selfie taken at Charles de Gaulle Airport 8 hours ago before boarding his airplane to Poland.

    He looks very healthy and like a model preparing for a runway instead of competitions.

    There are some cute older photos of Chafik, Florent and Morgan on this page:

    Note: Link deleted at request of owner.

    Chafik & Florent look about the same as today, but Morgan looks so young!

    Thanks, but for unknown reason I couldn't see the page with photos. I guess the account is no longer existing or allows only followers to see his pages ?

    Strange...I can still see them, and I'm not a follower or connected to that person's page. Morgan has the same photos on his page, though, and they are all public too, so hopefully you can see them?

    Yes, he was until he got a call asking him if he wanted to do a tryout for pairs with Vanessa.

    Thanks again. Still, the first one is invisible, but I can see the rest.
    Chafik looks so young back then, and Morgan becomes a totally different person from that time. He's lost a lot of weight.

    Thanks you for the heads up on the French team for Euro and Junior World.
    It seems like senior World team is not decided yet.

    Here are the results of Men's SP at Torun cup

    http://www.pfsa.com.pl/mnntc15/SEG029.HTM

    2nd Romain PONSART 70.51=38.68 + 31.83 6.50 6.00 6.50 6.33 6.50 0.00 #4
    3rd Chafik BESSEGHIER 67.81=35.74+32.07 6.58 6.33 6.33 6.33 6.50 0.00 #6

    Chafik did not succeed in the first quad triple combo, so he should do good at LP.
    His performance was better than that at the Nationals though.

    Romain could easily get the minimum TES for World. Since the World team for seniors seems not decided yet, the entry may be up to this competition and Euro.

    Romain is certainly one to be watched even though he doesn't have quads, I liked his SP performance yesterday. His acting was smooth and jump lands were ok.
    I missed to see Peter LIEBERS, the 1st SP finisher's performance because of a bad network connection.

    Here is the starting order today for Free programme

    0.17 difference makes Romain a winner. Congrat to Romain and Chafik.
    The stream was not working well, so I missed most of their performances, but am feeling good.

    I wonder the federation will send Romain to World instead of Chafik this time.

    The official YouTube channel of Torun cup has not uploaded video clips of the senior men's performances yet.
    Instead, I've found EX clips of Romain, and Chafik recorded from the live stream by obviously a FS fan.

    The definition of the clips is pretty low, but Chafik's EX is fun to watch. Enjoy!

    Does anyone think that Mae Berenice's costumes this season fantastic?

    I think she has a very great sense of style, and knows well what is good for her. They match well to her music.
    I wonder who has designed them for her. They look very expensive and elaborate.

    I especially like her SP dress - the FP costume from Skate America was the same she wore for last year's FP - maybe her new FP dress wasn't ready yet?

    I too, the cream colored dress is really awesome. My guess on the FP is the same as you, but she may think the dress is worthy of repeating or give her confidence.

    Some good news, and some bad news.

    I have just watched a video that is so funny that I just HAD to share it!

    Vanessa James and Maé-Bérénice Méité shake it off! (my own words!)

    Unfortunately, you can only view it if you are connected with Vanessa on Facebook.

    HOWEVER, yesterday, Vanessa posted a different video of them (obviously filmed at the same time) on her Instagram page:

    Not as funny as the other video, but still good!

    Does anybody know what song is used in this video? I don't, but from that short snippet, I like it!

    Public Safety Announcement: You may get a creak in your neck watching the Instgram video!
