Rumor says she didn't participate in the Russian Test skates because of a minor injury. Perhaps this is still bothering her? - or she is just not ready. I hope she's not seriously injured.

Adelina is skating in Milan next weekend. If she has a slight injury, then it wouldn't seem a good idea to do two competitions back to back. It makes sense for her to concentrate on qualifying for the JGPF. There are other International Bs coming up this fall where she can make her Senior debut.

What are you talking about? :shuffle: She's not competing in Milan or on the JGP at all this year, and is scheduled for the Senior GP (Cup of China and Cup of Russia).

She's not skating on the JGP so I don't know why she would be in Milan next weekend and I thought her competition season doesnt' start until Nov. Right now she's in Russia doing test skates.

You probably mixed her up with Julia Lipnitskaia.
