Ice dance team Marie-Jade Lauriault and Romain LeGac news

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.

Marie-Jade & Romain, a married couple, have been representing France - they have announced on Instagram that they will now be representing Quebec for Skate Canada.

This is a Google translation of their post:
In the current context, we have had to think about our future.

Our home, our studies, our professional careers and our future are now in Canada. This is why, in order to initiate this transition for our future, we will represent from the next season @patinageqc and @skate_canada.

We wanted to thank from the bottom of our hearts @teamadsg, our club for the past two years, for their unwavering support, as well as @ffsportsdeglace for the memorable experiences and opportunities you have had with you.

It has been an honor to represent France during all these years and this magnificent country will always remain a pillar of our history.

I looked at You Tube and these two seem rather awesome! I saw a skate from Feb 20,2018, and it says they finished 14th. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXAWn4q12-U
I thought the quality of Ice Dance must be very high, because they seemed so good.
Anyway, we lucked out with that Dance pair coming to Canada. I really like these two!
Are those lifts legal, today?

That video is of their free dance from the Olympics so anything that they did would have been legal, Fred - tested out through the other competitions through the season leading up to that event. You might recognize the names of the some of the teams that finished ahead of them there :D http://www.isuresults.com/results/seaso ... T004RS.HTM

Here's their ISU biography which gives their results over time: http://www.isuresults.com/bios/isufs00015087.htm

The level of ice dance around the world is definitely quite high. They are one of the many teams who have been coached by Marie-France & Patrice in Montreal, coming from around the world. Although some of the teams competing in 2018 have retired, the level remains high, even if, with the pandemic, we haven't seen many of them compete recently.
