I have read some news that Finland hopes to get a new GP-event! Banane I am of course very happy about it! Then I read that maybe TEB will give up it's GP-status Question
I started to think that does the French federation maybe prepare that after Brian and Nathalie&Fabian retire, the attendance to TEB will drop a lot. Brian has been the poster boy for the competition for many years and maybe they think that Amodio can't draw people to Bercy as much? All in all it sounds weird that TEB would like to stop. I hope we will get more information about this soon.

I understand your satisfaction with this news but I wouldn't like TEB stopped because I really like this competition even if Brian or Nathalie&Fabian will retire. I have read once that the Grand Prix competitions are in France, Russia, China, Japan, USA and Canada because the figure skating is the strongest just in these countries but if Finland will get a new GP-event, I don't mind, it will be interesting! Very Happy
I agree with you, Brian always could attract attention but it's nothing strange, after all Brian is a big champion!!! bravobrianfrance2 And Florent? We will see, but I think Brian is more talented than him.

Perhaps,Federation wants to keep GP-event,but France Television and sponsors give up to help for the competition.

I'm not sure if this has been posted before or not, but good news is always good, right? Well: according to Kevin van der Perren's website, his wrist is not fractured; the problem was ligament damage. He's wearing a brace and hopes to be ready for Worlds. Yay!

It's funny that I was just about to ask if Kevin is planning to go to the Worlds!

Great news Yulie! I hope to see Kevin in Nice; it would be a pity if his long career would have ended in Sheffield with this injury.

I have been told by my Belgian friends that Jorik is already selected by the Belgian Federation for Nice, I do hope very much that Kevin will be there - time will tell!

Maybe it was assumed that Kevin was definitely out? Because if he's healthy - he's the national champion, had a good GP showing, and was actually ahead of Hendrickx at Euros when the injury forced him out.

Also, I like Kevin better, which is an excellent reason in and of itself. Very Happy

I can tell you that Laura Lepistö's visit in North Korea has caused a quite storm here in Finland. All the major newspapers are writing about it and many people critize her and Finnish federation's decision in several forums. Now her manager tries to defend her. The magazines are trying to contact Laura but she is not allowed to have her mobile phone in Korea. I can only image what will happen when she comes back, her good image is long gone!

I saw pictures of the show and noticed that Nathalie and Fabian are there again! I can only wonder why they want to participate after knowing what they really celebrate there. I guess they need desperately money, too. But that doesn't seem to bother people in France?

I remember a few years ago Tomas Verner was highly criticized for participating in North Korean show.

Update re. Kevin - my friend has told me in her lastest email that Kevin is indeed going to Worlds (injuries permitting!) as he wants to finish on a complete competition - he doesn't mind if he finishes 24th! Jorik is substitute.

Great news, I wish I could afford to go.....

Evgeni Plushenko sets surgery date 23 Feb. So it seems he will not compete at Worlds.

I've just read that Tatiana Tarasova is due to have spinal surgery on Monday morning 19th March in Hanover, Germany.

Let us hope that it goes well for her!

Wow!!! Sheena, was anything said as to the nature of the surgery, specifically what they are going to repair/do? I do hope the surgery is more successful than most spinal surgeries are, in the long term.

It was very brief Mary, that was basically all it said.

Thank you for the update Sheena!

I feel sorry for Laura! She was one of my favourites in the ladies field.

Good news re. Tatiana Tarasova, she has had her surgery & is making (as at 23/3/12) a steady recovery.

I hope it continues to go well for her!
