    from John's facebook:

    I KNEW there was something more to their defeat at SC. I hope she recovers really soon and we get to see them at their full potential at Europeans.

    And what's with all the injuries this season, anyway? :(

    Oh, that really is a shame :(

    Especially because the British would have been our last chance to see them compete here in the UK before they retire at the end of the season http://www.iceskating.org.uk/node/4320 .

    At the Skate Canada International gala, she performed the reversed lift where she lifted John. Her shoulder must have been OK at that point, unless that lift was what caused the re-injury. :(

    Maybe they'll reconsider since they really haven't been at their best due to Sinead's injury?

    What a shame. Speedy recovery to Sinead.

    I hope taking the time off will enable her to heal completely by Euros.

    I have never believed they will retire after this season! :p Euros in Sheffield next season?!

    Very sad for them although not surprised, I've had a bad feeling. :( Glad that they are staying positive.

    Rats!!! So sad for them. I was looking forward to seeing their FD again. And their fun SD too. I hope she gets well soon.

    :wuzrobbed Poor Sinead! I hope she gets better really soon. Only performing at SC, Euros and Worlds before they retire makes me sad

    :wuzrobbed: Hope Sinead heals quickly.
    I actually did the same injury as her (popped my shoulder out two days in a row) at about the same time and it still feels like it is going to pop out again if I reach out at the certain angles. It's a painful nuisance for me, and I'm far from an elite athlete, so I probably don't use my shoulder half as much as Sinead.

    I'm so going to miss that SD. And, of course, the Kerrs-I think they're very talented.

    And yeah, I was really surprised when they got the silver at SC.

    Knowing about the first shoulder injury, I kept watching and watching, hoping nothing would happen and yet also being amazed that nothing did happen. I hope it heals.

    I think all the contortions "required" by CoP, plus very complex lifts, are causing way too many injuries.
    Skaters have always been injuring themselves, but had there ever been so many injuries in Ice Dance?

    Couldn't agree more. This is so sad to see so many talented ice dancers injuring themselves and being forced to skip competitions or even worse - end their career. :(

    Max Shabalin - knee injury, Tessa Virtue - chronic exertional compartment syndrome, Sergei Novitski - knee injury, Evan Bates - left Achilles tendon injury, Isabel Delobel - shoulder injury, Ben Agosto - back problems, Anna Zadorozhniuk - back problems - the list could go on and on and on. It seems like these days ice dancing is even more traumatizing than pairs skating!

    This leaves British Nationals in the very embarrassing position of only having 2 Senior Dance couples! :shuffle:

    NISA, what have you done to British Ice Dance?? :wall:

    CoP dance does appear to be more physically demanding, but I really don't see how the injuries suffered by Evan Bates (freak accident) or Isabel Delobel (injured doing a gala program) could possibly be blamed on the requirements of the system.

    Really sad about Sinead and John; I hope they'll have successful return at Euros.

    I still don't believe they will. This whole "this is their last season" is such a speculation. Neither of them has said anything about it yet. But I am pretty sure they will want to say goodbye to the British audience at Sheffield Euros, especially that they're gonna miss a big part of this season. They love people who love them and if audiences all over the world go crazy about them, just think how crazy the British audience will get. I wouldn't want to miss that if I were them ;)

    ... and Shabalin's injury was caused by a skiing accident, and Novitski was injured in a car crash.

    So sad for the Kerrs, :( and I'll miss them to much. I wish to see them in Sheffield too.

    I hope they will be healthy for Berna.

    Krylova permanently damaged her back in the days before CoP, I remember Beanie missing most of a season with a serious injury to something, and Naomi Lang was out as much as she was in. Didn't Averbukh also have a bad knee?

    In other words, Cop hasn't made it any easier but the constant stress on the joints seems to be part of the sport and even young, healthy, flexible people eventually show the strain. :(

    Where did you get this info from? :confused: Shabalin actually had surgeries on both of his knees and neither of them was caused by the ski accident. He underwent meniscus surgery on his right knee in the 2007 off-season. But as the season progressed it turned out that Maxim also needed surgery on the meniscus in his left knee. He had his second surgery in December 2007, so they had to skip Russian Nationals, because Maxim needed time to recover. Then they won gold at the 2008 European Championships, but Maxim re-injured his left knee AGAIN, which caused them to withdraw from 2008 Worlds.

    Novitski's problems with knees had nothing to do with the car crash: Sergei has been struggling with knee injuries FOR YEARS. Unfortunately this is a very typical injury for male ice dancers, because the pressure on meniscus is HUGE. I don't remember exactly which year was it, but I believe that Fabian Bourzat also had a surgery on his knee some time ago.

    about Shabalin, I read it in a forum, maybe I lost something in traslation

    But Novitiski said in every interview that his injury was caused by the car accident

    http://ptichkafs.livejournal.com/49607.html

    You're right, high pressure made the injury worse

    Awwww- I am so sad for the Kerrs when this year is such a perfect year for them to move up into the top rankings and get more recognition in the post Olympic season. I hope they stay longer than this year too.

    Yes, Novitski's car accident damaged his knee and head, Jana bruised knee http://eastonice.free.fr/khokhlova-novitski/press/e1.html

    and this was back in 2007 :eek: I had no idea about this until reading it few months ago.

    :( about Sinead!

    The field is weak enough as it is. We don't need to lose one of the few couples capable of interpreting their dances!


    Some of those injuries were freak accidents though. Krylova fell backwards out of the rink because someone left the door open and Albena's leg was sliced by Tchernyshev's blade during warm-up. IMO the CoP does force the skaters to do lifts that are too acrobatic for ice dance.

    I think that Kerrs are going to stay until 2012.

    If it was only for this season, I would image that they would have quit now, having suffered such a serious setback.

    Thanks for letting us know, mia joy. This is so sad--I wish her a speedy recovery.
    btw, I was at SC and thought that even with the problems they were a pleasure to watch--they really reach out to the audience like no other team. I adore these two and hope they can get back to skating very soon.
    Also, John is the sweetest--I saw him coming out of the backstage area looking for Sinead and he stopped to chat with fans and sign autographs and pose for photos. He was so genuine in his interactions with people. He was just so friendly and seemed so happy to be there. I wish I'd had a chance to see Sinead, as she seems lovely as well.

    Oh dear, horrible news again! :(

    The thing with any sport requiring a lot of flexibility and putting a lot of stress on the joints really is that because of having to extend your joints and muscles to the very maximum (and sometimes almost beyond) means that your joints and muscles are more prone to injuries. And for those who are naturally hyperflexible the risk is actually bigger because it usually indicates tissue weakness of some sort.
