French team training at Grieux until Christmas, Pauline Morel to continue
Posted December 17, 2008on:
A small group of French gymnasts is in Grieux (near Grenoble) for a training camp lasting until December 23rd.
Apparently national coach Véronique Legras-Snoeck wants to integrate the youngest seniors, those born in 1993, including Youna Dufournet.
Pauline Morel will not be at Giers, but has already announced that she will continue competing.
The gymnasts present are Dufournet, Emilie Dupuis, Manon Erre, Eva Maurin, Elodie Perez, Marine Petit, Typhaine Pompilio, and Chloé Stanic. Petit is the only Olympic-team member to show up at Giers.
Of other gymnasts who could/should have been present, many are excused, and some are injured (including Laetitia Dugain, Kathleen Lindor, Aurélie Malausséna and Angéline Serre). Apparently Rose-Eliandre Bellemare and Lindsay Lindor are in Guadeloupe for a gala. Guadeloupe or Giers? You decide.
Finally, Marine Debauve has not yet decided on the future of her gymnastics career (by which I mean, whether it exists).
