Name: Laurent Tobel > Website: www.laurenttobel.com

Laurent Tobel has become the sensation of figure skating. He has the distinction of being the tallest male single skater in his sport. It was his height, mixed with humorous programs like " the Pink Panther", and "Swan Lake" that brought attention to his skating. Laurent says he created programs like these to allow the audience to get involved with his performances.

In 1999, Laurent's dreams came true when he became National Champion of France in the Senior's Men competition. Tobel has retired from the amateur rank and has many offers from professional shows because of his reputation as an incredibly talented showman. At the 1997 World Figure Skating Championships in Lausanne ,Tobel finished 13th , but was asked to perform his "Pink Panther" program in the exhibition skate. An honour usually reserved to the top three or four skaters in each discipline. The same happened at his second and third World Championships.
