    That is such bad timing! Hope she heals fully for the Olympic season.

    I hate sounding cynical but honestly this is Laura Lepistö all over again. :( And I refuse to get my hopes up about Kiira ever being able to return because that's what I kept hoping for with Laura and look how that turned out....

    So as a self-coping mechanism :)wuzrobbed) - bring on the juniors! At least there are a few good ones.

    It sucks badly. After such a good opening to the season, this is so frustrating and sad!

    Dear Hanna, I so wish that you are totally wrong! (I guess you wish that, too!) It is hard for an athlete to keep her spirits up amongst all these injuries.

    So sad for Kiira, she's always lovely and has been improving steadily all these years....

    Now, should Turkilla feel pressured or not? If she actually manages to grab an olympic spot at worlds it wouldn't be for her next season if Kiira recovers. But in the case Kiira doesn't this is her better chance to get the spot (a 20th place should make it) instead of Nebelhorn.

    I won't lie and say I didn't expect it. At her age it's going to be a lot tougher to rebound from an injury like that. I don't know what her prospects are like for Sochi next year but at least she'll have the next few months to rest...

    I really hope she beats the odds and comes back next season. She was skating with more attack and confidence than I remember in recent years and that made her very enjoyable to watch. Fingers crossed for her!

    :( for Korpi and even :(:( for Turkilla! She is most likely going to miss out on Sochi if Korpi returns next season.

    Darn, I was hoping she would recover fully in time. I was really looking forward to seeing her lovely programs again.
    Bad news indeed. She withdrew last season from Worlds due to lingering foot and hip injuries.

    Kiira has been to 2 Olympics. I hope she fully recovers and makes it to Sochi.

    I'm not sure that it is as much a matter of pain -- if you continue to aggravate it, the tendon can rupture, turning it into a much bigger issue.

    (She has my sympathy. It is an incredibly hard injury to really get past. Took me a good three years, and even so I get twinges which cause me to back right off.)

    Oh, that's so sad :(. She performed at 'Art on Ice' in Helsinki recently, so I thought that perhaps she'll be fine enough by Worlds. And I was really looking forward to seeing her in the mix with other top ladies at Worlds. But it's so much sadder for her than for any of us.

    That's correct. The pain returned as soon as she tried to go back to normal training instead of cut back hours (exactly the way it was with Lepistö).

    That's true but performing a show number with two double axels is far from doing two competitive programs back to back and especially the free skate, of course. :( I think most skaters can pull off a show number without hardly any serious training but for competitive programs the shape you have to be in is completely different.
