The French teams, at the Junior and Senior ISU level, are holding their breath. They should indeed present their new programs physically for the first time of the season on Friday and Saturday during the 2020 Masters organized in Villard-de-Lans, in the south-east of France.
From Thursday, the 2020 Masters will take place in Villard-de-Lans. The event will welcome the Zoulous in the Senior category and three teams in the Junior division (Les Chrysalides de Valenciennes, Zazous from Lyon, and Team Jeanne d'Arc of the Rouen Olympic Club). The competition will allow teams to present their new programs and benefit from monitoring.
The director of the French teams at the national federation, Catherine Glaise, explained to the skaters that the locker rooms will be disinfected after each team (time is allocated to this task in the schedule) and that the masks will have to be worn by the athletes almost everything time.
Also, bringing together ice dance and figure skating skaters, the competition and health rules will have to be adapted to synchronized skating teams.
Several theme announcements have already been announced. If Les Zoulous have started to unveil some clues on Instagram, Les Chrysalides will present a free program to "Artificial Intelligence" and the team Zazous will skate their short program to the piece of music "Music was my first Love".
Same schedule on Saturday for the free programs.
