Skate France International 2022 Grand Prix Skating Competition Discussion
In our third episode, Wendy and Adron talk about Skate France, the 2022 figure skating Grand Prix event held November 4th-6th in Angers, France. Though a lot of the competitive performances were not very memorable, several of the podium-grabbing skates were quite spectacular!
We breakdown standout skates from Loena Hendrickx, Guitard & Fabbri, and Adam Siao Him Fa. We look at up-and-coming American skaters Audrey Shin and ice dance team Pate & Bye.
Get hyped with us for the announcement that Jason Brown will return to competitive ice at US Nationals! We also discuss our desire for skaters to diversify their music choices and move away from the same classic pieces, and why US Skating needs to promote the international camaraderie of skating.
