Maybe it's just me, but it seems like more skaters are injured this year than ever. What do you think this can be attributed to? Perhaps everyone trying to up their technical ante the year before the olympic season? 3 of the top 5 US men have been dealing with injuries (Lysacek, Weir, Abbott) as well as big US names Alissa and Rachael among others. Tons of people pulling out of the GPs from all nations in every discipline. The pairs field has run out of possible competitors for the GP series. Hopefully this all gets sorted, i prefer a competition where all are healthy and at the top of their game.
