It is the end of the season for a little more than 10 teams after the final round of the French national championships which took place last weekend in Caen.
The national championship for Novice Advanced, Junior and Senior N2 in France takes place in different rounds. Scores are added, and an average is calculated. The team with the best average score is the national champion.
For the Senior N2, the Parisian team Exl’Ice is crowned national champion for the 2nd time in a row. The team started the season with the “Trophée des Hauts de France” in Compiègne last February, they won the competition with 64.67 points. During the final, Exl’Ice, a team made of 12 women and a man, skated a clean program even though there were a few individual mistakes. “Considering the lack of concurrence (lBlack Diam’s Senior withdrew for the final), we of course expected to be crowned national champions. However, we are really happy about this second title in a row which highlights a very loaded season… The theme of our program is virtual reality: how to get out of it? Between fear and amazement at this futuristic splendor, the trap closes. Will we win the game and regain freedom?”. The competition season ended for the team and it is now time for shows.
