Laura Lepistö can´t skate in the Worlds. She hurt her lower back very badly last week. She fell when she was skating backwards, her blades stuck together and the fall caused that her lower back is "locked" most of the time. Because she has lost a lot of training time earlier this season and suffered from the flu a couple of weeks ago, she think it would be foolish to compete injuderd and unprepared.

:(:wuzrobbed:(

Juulia Turkkila skates instead of Lepistö.

Oh no, what an unlucky season for her, she must be devastated. So close to returning from injury and then this :( I must admit I am not a big fan of her skating but I hope she recovers soon and can have a great start next year. Good luck Laura :kickass:

What was the previous injury that kept her out of the autmumn competitions?

First it was Achilles tendon. It then affected to her other muscles, like hips. Too bad.

Thanks. That must be so frustrating, especially after her wonderful 2010 season, with silver at the Euros and bronze at the Worlds, plus 6th at the Olympics which was the highest placement for a European lady.

Laura has achieved a lot already. European Champion, two other European medals and a world medal. But she is a beautiful skater to watch and artistically has so much more to give that I still feel it is the beginning of her career. So hope she can overcome these injuries and come back strong next year.

Is there a place where we can leave support messages? :cheer2:

Ugh, these locked-leg falls are the worst :(. Hopefully she'll take her time getting back to full-time training and have a better season next year.

How awful for her!
I wish her a speedy - and complete - recovery
