Julia Forestier is working on the Nabieva !

French junior Julia Forestier (2003) is working on a Nabieva ! A lot of missed attempts but she eventually catches it at the end !

Julia is one of the top junior in France, she has great charisma and elegance. She still lacks a bit of difficulty but she is a pleasure to watch. Check out her last competition at Combs-La-Ville after coming back from a femur stress fracture that kept her out of EYOF : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=09kDc6SXt0U

New French seniors for 2018

2018 is going to be here soon with 3 new seniors for France that will do their best to try to factor in future teams. Here they are :

1. Alisson Lapp

Alisson best event are beam and floor. She has great expresivity  and charisma on floor but her tumbling lacks of difficulty (double pike, 2.5 twist + punch front, front twist, double twist). That’s on beam that she could factor the most if she remains consistent. She has an average FTY on vault but she struggles a lot on bars. She posted an all around score of 50.550 at french championships last May but injured her foot shortly before EYOF training camps and had to withdraw to get surgery. Here are her junior career highlights :

2. Morgane Osyssek

Morgane is Alisson’s fellow teamates as they both trained in Dijon during there junior years and have now moved to INSEP. She was really promising in her first junior year as she placed 6th at junior Europeans championships AA finals :

2017 has been a little bit harder for her as she was held back by a few injuries (elbow) and had to withdraw from EYOF as she suffered a broken toe and had to get surgery. She is a quite balanced all arounder but need to uprise her difficulty on all event. She was capable of a 1.5 twisting yurchenko and to do piked full-in + tucked full-in in the same routine in 2016. I hope for her to be as healthy as possible in 2018 to show us the extend of her talent.

3. Sheyen Petit

Sheyen has for a long time in the shadow of other juniors but she has improved a lot this season to be the reserve gymnast for the french team at EYOF. She trained at Toulon alongside olympians Loan His and Oréane Lechenault but has moved to Marseille in 2016 after Toulon’s training center closing. Her best even is beam and she has also a very dynamic choregraphy on floor that is one of my personal favorite. She needs improving her difficulty on all event, especially on bars and floor and to clean up her FTY but has been on a great dynamic of improving last season so I hope she can keep going in 2018. Check out her floor, beam and bars from 2017 Massilia :

Loan His who had been injured since the end of the Olympic Games has finally been allowed to resume training since early July.


I don’t know why Melissa Poitreau isn’t called. She has been injured since early 2017 and has lost her place in the national team. It may be for this (but she can be added at the last moment), or she is always injured

New french juniors (part 1 : Dijon’s girls)

France has some 2004 babies (I can’t believe that 2004 are already juniors ^^) that look really promising and are hoping to make it to the junior European Championships next august ! The first part is going to be about the gymnasts who train at Dijon’s training center. Those 3 gymnasts are almost on every national podium together for the last 2 years and it’s clear that they could accomplish great things in the future.

1. Alizée Létrange-Mouakit

Alizée is 2015, 2016 and 2017 french national champion and is probably the most consistent gymnast of her age category. She is a balanced all arounder with no real weak event and has already good D-score for her age (4.6 on vault, 4.4 on bars, 4.9 on beam and floor) and a great excecution. Check out her competion at last Flanders International Challenge where she scored 50.532 with a fall on beam :

2. Mathilde Wahl

Mathilde finished 2nd at last french championships in May 2017 and 2nd atTop Gym last november with 51.149 ! She improved a lot this season to became one of the most promising french junior. She is also a great all-arounder with a big difficulty bars routine for her age (that still needs some cleaning efforts tho) :

and a dynamic floor routine :

3. Eva Meder

Eva is like her fellow teamates a balanced all-arounder who finished 3rd at last french championships. Her standout event would be beam. She also has great charisma on floor and a good bars routine but she still needs to gain some confidence especially on beam where she could do great things like in her gold medal beam routine at COMEGYM in Spain last April :
