PARIS — World champion and Olympic silver medalist Mao Asada will be looking to regain her form and confidence at the Trophee Bompard.
With the World Championships looming in March in Tokyo on home ice, Asada needs to bounce back following dismal performances in her first two competitions this season at the Japan Open and the NHK Trophy.
Asada parted ways with Russian coach Tatiana Tarasova this year and has struggled to adapt to her new coach Nobuo Sato, who previously worked with Miki Ando and Fumie Suguri.
The Trophee Bompard starts Friday in Paris. It is the sixth and last event in the ISU Grand Prix series before next month's Grand Prix Final in St. Petersburg, Russia.
