Joubert will be bidding to lift the world title for the first time after finishing runner-up last year.

Ice dancers Isabelle Delobel and Olivier Schoenfelder will be targetting gold in that discipline after winning the European title in Poland last month.

However, it is not certain if the team will include a ladies' competitor, with French champion Anne-Sophie Calvez set to undergo a test after finishing just 17th at the European championships.
