Figure skating: where and at what time to follow the European championships live on TV?


The French team has arrived in force in Finland where the competition is taking place and intends to win medals.

This is an appointment not to be missed either for the French team or for the viewers.

The European Figure Skating Championships, which are held in Espoo, Finland, until January 29, could be the scene of great surprises for French athletes.

No Russians but beautiful people

Always boycotted in international competitions, Russian athletes are not present, in particular the reigning European champion Kamila Valieva, who recently caused a sensation by resuming the dance of the heroine of the


series .

An absence regretted by Philippe Candeloro, who comments on the competition with Annick Dumont and Nelson Monfort on France televisions:

“It's a shame, because they bring a lot sportingly speaking.

But that leaves more of a chance for others to make the podium, especially among the ladies.


The young Belgian Loena Hendrickx, vice-world champion, is thus the favorite.

Léa Serna, triple champion of France, will try to clear a place on the podium.

In the pairs, the French Camille and Pavel Kovalev, finished fourth after the short program which was held on Wednesday January 25th.

They have the possibility of slipping into the top three after the free which is held this Thursday, January 26 at 6:10 p.m.

Our ice dance specialists Evgeniia Lopareva and Geoffrey Brissaud have a very good card to play during these European championships.

They will return to the track on Friday 27.

Two French for a podium?

But it is in the men's category that France has the best chance of shining.

Adam Siao Him Fa, haloed with the title of champion of France, will seek the gold medal and he is on track for that since he finished at the top of the short program on Wednesday.

It's Friday, January 27 at 5 p.m. that everything will be decided.

His compatriot Kevin Aymoz took 4th place but nothing was decided.

“They both have the potential to be European champions and could score a double,” continues Philippe Candeloro.

They will have to manage the pressure and be wary of the Italian Matteo Rizzo (2nd in the short program) as well as the Latvian Deniss Vasiljevs (3rd).
