You maybe have noticed that the past few days, the International Skating Union (ISU) was posting on their social media about skating costumes! Let's take a moment to speak about costumes in synchro.
The French national championship for juniors was held last weekend in Paris. Just like the seniors (which took place in December), the competition is a true ice skating event because it gathers ice dance, figure skating (singles and pairs) and synchronized skating.
The Zazous, a junior team training in Lyon, France, competed for the first time last weekend at Compiègne during the Masters. After a busy summer, the athletes are very well prepared for the season.
Last Saturday, October 28, 2017 marked the beginning of the season for six teams from France, Germany and Great Britain. The competition, based only on the short program, took place in Compiègne in an ice rink just reopened after major renovations.
This is the first competition this Saturday for six teams from France but also from Germany and the United Kingdom. Three nations and three categories are represented: Novice Advanced, Senior N1, and Junior N1. This first event is only based on the short program. For the free program, the teams have the opportunity to present their work to the judges on Sunday.
On Friday afternoon, the famous French Cup competition started in Rouen, France. Novices Advanced skated their free program and Juniors competed with their short program.
On Saturday, October 22nd, 11 teams from Switzerland, Great Britain, and France competed on the Charlemagne ice rink in Lyon, France. It was the first occasion for many of them to show their new programs.
