Abstract: We give a new proof that the limit of a weakly convergent sequence of mappings with finite distortion also has finite distortion. The result has been recently proved by Gehring and Iwaniec using the biting convergence of Jacobians. We present a different proof using simply the lower semi-continuity of quasiconvex functionals.
