Oh, that's great! Rumours became reality. :cheer:
And it is very good that they will train in Gauthier Marcotte team. They and Kirsten with Michael will push each other forward.
And it is a bit symbolic that they will be available for media on the all fools day. :biggrin:

I’m so excited! I miss Lubov so much; she has an exquisite quality to her movements and it would be just criminal if she never got to go to the Olympics. Charlie is a strong partner and I think they will be excellent together. Goooo Ilyushechkina and Bilodeau!

I think they look great together. I hope that Lubovs jump issues are just mental as Richard said.

If you had to define 'joy of skating' you could use a picture of lubov's smile to do it.

Exactly! She is one of the sweetest, happiest people I have ever known. I hope she can finally reach the Olympics; she deserves it.

Me too! So much! But even if she doesn't I know she will have the best time pursuing that dream. I'm looking forward to the journey!

From the media day, evidently their choreography for the upcoming season will be from Marie-France Dubreuil and Guillaume Cizeron.

SUPER excited to see Luba and Charlie! If Richard Gautier is correct about Luba's jump problems being mental, then maybe with a new partner and coach she can be successful. So much potential!

Thank you for this. I am stoked. They look fantastic together, much more in harmony of line than either was with their previous partners, IMO. They look very promising together, and I love their attitudes.

I also really like the double back lean in the spread eagle in the squat... can't remember the name of that move. It could become a signature for them.

ETA: It's a cantilever. I've never seen a pair do one together like they're practicing :)

I’m very excited about this. Guillaume did an amazing job with James/Cipres, so I can’t wait to see what he can come up with for Lubov and Charlie.
IIRC, didn’t Marie-France do choreo for Lubov and Dylan back in the 2016-17 season? I really loved their programs.

Will they be eligible for come back status in order to get a second GP. I’m sure SC will invite them otherwise.

they're not (have to have placed top 6 at worlds), but I agree that SC will almost certainly invite them
