How sad! Wish her quick recovery. Now the door is more wide-open for Osmond and Lacoste.

What a pity! Why are my favourite ladies so unlucky? :( Hope she recovers quickly.

I wonder if the injury is why she was not selected for Skate Canada Int'l this year, or if that was determined prior to the federation's knowledge of it?

What if she wins Canadians - she doesn't have the new min tech score for worlds does she?

She'll have to compete at some January/February/early March international competition.

Edit: Totally forgot about 4CC. That would do. :P

Does she have the minimum score for 4CC?

Here's the original RDS.ca (Le Réseau des sports) source link (July 10) that mentions "une fracture de stress au dos" (stress fracture in her back): http://www.rds.ca/amateurs/chroniques/343611.html


Does she have the minimum score for 4CC?
Yes, Phaneuf fulfilled the required minimum 4CC TES scores at 2012 4CC.

icenetwork has an article as well, in which they mention that although she doesn't have an assignment, there is a TBA for Skate Canada:

That's really too bad. I wonder if she had issues last winter, which may have hampered her competitive results...?

How could she be out of the GP when she wasn't assigned to any event in the firs place ?? :rolleyes: Yeah I know about the TBA host spot but honestly if SC didn't give her that one right away is for a reason..:shuffle:

Anyways, she can still make the 4CC team and get the World Minimun score tehre.

This was my question. :P

Seriously though, I hope Cynthia recovers completely and can return to the ice healthy.
