Chafik Besseghier – New French Wind

At the Trophée Eric Bombard passing in France by the big surprise there was a performance of Chafik Besseghier.

This figure skater participates for the first time in such serious tournament. I think that despite the debut, his short program has pleasantly surprised many. During the all time of performance of this skater it was felt that he goes for a skate relaxed, executes his elements with pleasure and does all of this in a high level.

For his performance was matched perfectly the image which he implemented on the ice. We can say that all he did today was very French beautifully.
