Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron get 'revenge' after dress malfunction in Olympics figure skating
Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron’s ice dance gold medal hopes were hit at PyeongChang 2018 after the former’s dress came undone. They admitted their world record at Beijing 2022 was a “little revenge” as they set their stall for that elusive Olympic title. With Canadian legends Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir no longer competing, the French duo are overwhelming favourites.
'Unreal' - French duo Papadakis and Cizeron set new world record with ice dance at Beijing
An ill-timed calamity saw Papadakis’ dress come undone during the opening moments of their rhythm routine at PyeongChang 2018.
Although they put the distraction to one side to complete the routine and followed it up with a world record in the free dance, they were pipped to gold by Canadian legends Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir.
