Three-time world champions and four-time European champions, French ice dancers Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron had to settle for silver behind Canadian duo Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir at PyeongChang 2018. With age still very much on their side, the world record holders for the short dance, free dance and combined points totals are already planning their bid for gold at Beijing 2022.
French figure skating has produced many a successful ice dance pair since the 1990s, led by 1991 world champions and Olympic silver medallists Isabelle and Paul Duchesnay.
The list also includes Gwendal Peizerat and Marina Anissina (2000 world champions and Salt Lake 2002 Olympic champions); Isabelle Delobbel and Olivier Schoenfelder (2008 world champions) and Nathalie Péchalat and Fabian Bourzat (two-time World Championship medallists and double European champions.)
Aged only 22 and 23 respectively, Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron are well on the way to achieving even more than their illustrious predecessors, having already won three world and four continental titles in dominating the international scene since Sochi 2014.
