Click on the left side to hear CBC Sports analysts Kurt Browning and Pj Kwong look back at this past weekend's Grand Prix of France event, one of their favourite competitions of the season, in their podcast.

Kurt and Pj are particularly enthralled with the skating of young Russian star Elena Radionova, whom they feel has immense potential as an artist and actress. Radionova also had a couple of elements in her performance that no other woman skater is attempting.

Canadian ice dancers Piper Gilles and Paul Poirier were in contention in France and wound up on the podium with a strong performance.

Here's Kurt and Pj's recap of the Grand Prix of France.
