ISU 2019-20 GP - Event #3 - Internationaux de France - Nov. 1-3

This is where we discuss figure skating and skating related items. How did you favourite skaters perform, and so on? However we never speculate on the private lives of skaters, like who might be going out with whom, because that is poison and is not tolerated here. A good guideline is that if it's not publicly announced, in the papers etc. then it's probably best to leave it alone. Is it a gray area? Then write to me and ask.

A bit of costume controversy arose during this event.

There are a number of skaters using music from the film "Schindler's List" this season. One of them is Anton Shulepov of RUS (who married Alena Leonova earlier this year). His choice of costume created a lot of negative comment. It is hoped by many that he will change it before his next GP event, the NHK Trophy.

Thoughts?

Yes, for sure this can be felt as disrespect for the victims of the Holocaust.
