Bruno Massot (born 28 January 1989 in Caen) is a French pair skater. With partner Daria Popova, he is the 2012 French national champion. Previously, he competed with Camille Foucher and as a single skater.
Massot competed in single skating through the 2006-07 season. He then switched to pair skating and teamed up with Camille Foucher, with whom he won a pair of senior bronze medals at the French Championships and competed at two World Junior Championships. After their partnership ended, he skated with Anne-Laure Letscher until February 2011.
Massot and Daria Popova decided to team up in March 2011 and they began serious training in June. They train in Caen, France with Jean-Francois Ballester. In their first season together, they also trained in Chemnitz, Germany about three weeks every quarter with Steuer.
Popova / Massot's first competition together was the 2011 Master's de Patinage, where they won the silver medal. They were 10th in their international debut at the 2011 Coupe de Nice and then placed 4th at the 2011 NRW Trophy. In December 2011, they won the 2012 French national title. Visa and administrative delays led to uncertainty about their participation at the 2012 European Championships but the situation was resolved just before the event. They placed sixth in the short program and 8th overall. As the second-placed French pair, they were not selected for the 2012 World Championships, but were assigned to the French team for the 2012 World Team Trophy.
