I didn't tape the first part so I
can't transcript it, but basically here is a
First, a short note about how they were dressed:
Marina & Gwendal had their "Carmina Burana"
costumes. Marina had her hair down and very little
make up and looked very beautiful. Julie Snyder had
a costume that looked a bit like M&G's
costumes, and she was wearing a helmet and had
protections on her knees!
They showed parts of their "Carmina Burana"
performance at Worlds. Then Marina & Gwendal
showed the start moves to Julie Snyder on the ice.
Julie then tried to do them with Gwendal! They did
the same with the turning lift (the one at the end
of the first part of the program, right after the
leaps), and Julie was crying and saying "oh! my
head is spinning!! Isn't your head spinning when
you do that, Marina?" And Marina was laughing and
answered no. Then the three of them were in what
looked like a cloackroom, and Julie asked if
skating blades were cutting. Gwendal said: "Yes,
when they are well wet, it can cut everything!" So
they started cutting vegetables with their skates
(it was so funny!!) to make a soap!
(Julie is skating with Marina)
Julie Snyder: What is
Gwendal's main quality?
Marina: It's hard to say it
right now but... he is very clever, and he is
(Julie is now skating with
Gwendal: Marina's main quality
is her will-power. Despite all the difficulties she
always go on.
Marina): And his worst
M: Hmm... Sometimes he
is a bit capricious.
G: Her worst defect?
J (skating with
Marina): Do you have the time (because you
are not romantically involved with Gwendal) to have
a sentimental life off the ice?
M: Personnally at the
moment I think more about my career and for the
rest I'll see later!
J: So you don't have a
fiancé or a boyfriend?
M: Of course I had...
But I don't have somebody with whom I want to live
now, that's for sure.
J: You don't have
somebody wo is always there.
M: For the moment,
J: So you are
J: Oh, some guys will be
happy to hear that!
M: But I'm very busy at
J (laughing and looking
at the camera): She is single but
very busy so call back after Salt Lake City in
2002, she'll have the time!! (she and
Marina laugh together) She will be Olympic
medallist and she will have the time!! That's it
(looking at Marina)?
Marina shrugs her shoulders and
Gwendal is there too now, and Julie
is skating with a chair.
J: If I want to
practice, I can start with a chair, since I don't
have a Gwendal! (Gwendal laughs)
She and Gwendal do a spiral holding the chair
together. Then Julie comes sat on the chair ,
sliding, and Marina and Gwendal stop her catching
J: that's a good
practice, isn't it?
G: Pfff... Yes, I don't
know if you will become World champion but...
J: I know, you are World
champions, but I'm World champion too but with the
J: Yes, I swear! With the
Zamboni I'm unbeatable!!
Then, Julie does figures on the
Zamboni! Marina shows a 6.0 mark. Then Marina &
Gwendal both wave a flag when she finishes. Julie
receives flowers and then Marina & Gwendal give
her a hug!! (of course don't take it too
