The entire skating world has been on “pause” since Saturday, waiting for the ISU council’s decision on what to do with the results from 2015 Trophee Eric Bompard, after the long programs were cancelled due to the tragic attacks in Paris. I was hoping that the event would be safe enough to continue, but it was the appropriate call by the French government to respect the country's official days of mourning and state of emergency.
Since the event, fans and experts alike have been guessing at what decision the ISU Council may make now and rumors are swirling about proposals from many different federations.
I will follow in the footsteps of many and not officially recap #TEB15's short program out of respect for the greater situation. I will,however, blog an analysis of the decision once it is finalized. No matter what, some skaters are unfortunately going to be impacted and they have to do the "least unfair" thing.
Mostly, I just want a decision so that we can all move forward and most importantly-so we can get back to a full weekend of skating at Rostelecom!
