The 2017 French Championships take place Dec. 14-16 in Nantes. Teams for the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, Europeans and Worlds will be determined following this event. Vanessa James and Morgan Ciprès have withdrawn. James hurt her left shoulder on a quad throw in practice and is out of the Championships.
At this time, it is unclear what the plan will be for the second pairs team of Lola Esbrat and Andrei Novoselov. To earn a place at the Olympic Winter Games Novoselov will need French citizenship, which he currently does not have and unless that comes through in the next month, that team will be watching the Games on television.
