At 52, Philippe Candeloro still has resources… Guest in Le Figaro At Night , the double Olympic figure skating medalist took up the challenge launched by the presenter of the show Thibaut Gauthier: to do a somersault.

“Children, don’t do this at home”

After warming up for a few moments, the consultant for France Television warned the children about the difficulty of the somersault. “The figure I’m going to do now is quite dangerous. Kids, don’t do this at home. You can do this on your mattress or on foam. On the ice, it’s forbidden… except after ten years of practice,” smiles Philippe Candeloro.
