Thanks to Rastablub, I’ve discovered Mathieu Jost & Pernelle Carron ice dancing partnership… I’m a little bit ashamed to be so disconnected from iceskating, but I acknowledge that, on the one hand, I love this sport, but on the other hand, I’m still convinced that iceskating contests and ambience are deadly boring…
But having a look to the below exhibition program reminds me that galas & shows are once and for all worthy. It was in Paris Bercy, probably in 2008, for the French "Stars sur Glace" tour. Skating on two themes of Sweet Dreams (a jazzy version and Marilyn Manson reprise), this program mixes technicality, grace & velocity.
Carron & Jost were the 2006 and 2007 French national bronze medalists and the 2008 and 2009 French national silver medalists. They also won a bronze medal at the 2007 Skate Canada International, finished as high as 6th at the European Championships, and were ninth in their only appearance at the World Championships. Their partnership ended in April 2009. What a loss for ice dancing!…
I still remember watching Katarina Witt performance on TV at the Calgary Winter Olympics closing ceremony in 1988… I started iceskating one year before, and her performance, even if not really technical, will stay in all skaters memories as it was is unusual to hear such kind of music with this style of choregraphy during a figure skating contest.
