Personal lifeEdit

Carron was born on 20 August 1986 in Gleize, France.[1] She studied interior architecture and design at CREAD School in Lyon.

CareerEdit

Early partnershipsEdit

Pernelle Carron started skating at age six. She started skating because her aunt has Down Syndrome and all the family was going skating with her. Her aunt, Clothilde Fedry, participated several times at the Special Olympics and won the bronze medal as a solo figure skater.

Carron skated with Edouard Dezutter for twelve years and finished 13th at the 2005 World Junior Championships.

In the summer of 2005, Carron teamed up with Mathieu Jost.[2] Together, they were the 2006 and 2007 French national bronze medalists and the 2008 and 2009 French national silver medalists. Carron and Jost also won a bronze medal at the 2007 Skate Canada International, finished 6th at the 2009 European Championships, and were ninth in their only appearance at the World Championships. Carron ended her partnership with Jost in April 2009.[3][4]

Partnership with Lloyd JonesEdit

Carron teamed up with Lloyd Jones in April 2009.[3] They were coached by Muriel Boucher-Zazoui and Romain Haguenauer in Lyon, France at the start of their partnership.

In their first season together, Carron and Jones won the NRW Trophy and became the French national champions. Carron and Jones were 12th at the European Championships and at that season's World Championships.

In the 2010–2011 season, they again won the 2010 NRW Trophy, as well as the 2010 Coupe de Nice, and finished 5th and 4th in two Grand Prix assignments, 2011 Skate Canada and the 2010 Trophee Eric Bompard, respectively. At the French Championships, they finished second to Nathalie Pechalat / Fabian Bourzat. They moved up to 9th at the European Championships and again finished 12th at Worlds. After the season ended, they moved to the United States to be coached by Natalia Linichuk.[5]

In 2011–12, Carron and Jones began their season by taking silver at the 2011 Cup of Nice. They then won their first Grand Prix medal together, bronze, at the 2011 Cup of China. At the end of the season, they moved to the United Kingdom to be coached by Marika Humphreys.

After retiring from competition the two skated in ice shows. They appeared as the principal couple for Holiday on Ice's Passion Tour. Carron has also worked as an ice skating coach and choreographer.
