    Judging by this photo, it appears Kaitlyn's cast is off. An article I read recently mentions doctors are surprised at her progress. When Kaitlyn was injured in the past, she was quoted as saying she tends to heal quickly.

    Great news...thanx for posting. I'll bet she's happy to have that thing off........now comes the hard part.........getting it going again. It looks promising though.

    That's great news. I hope she doesn't rush it but I can't wait for them to be back in action!

    Perhaps Kaitlyn needs to shelve the attitude, and the same goes for some of their supporters. I'm getting a little tired of the Gilles & Poirier bashing from the W&P contingent.

    Vanessa & Paul regularly beat Kaitlyn & Andrew when they were competing together because C&P often skated better than W&P. C&P beat W&P for the 2010 Olympics and for the 2011 National title. C&P also won Skate Canada one season and won a medal at the Grand Prix Final, so it wasn't just Skate Canada that was giving them high marks.

    Perhaps that's not why Weaver rolled her eyes.

    Gilles/Poirier are not in the same league as Crone/Poirier, at least at this time.

    True. I agree with that.

    As I said on the other thread, that's because Piper is new to this level of skating. She doesn't have the Olympic & World experience that Paul has because she hasn't been to those events like Vanessa had. It will probably take Piper at least a couple of seasons to come up to Paul's level, but the point is that she is improving all the time.

    The Observer...........If you like Poirier/Giles so much, why don't you start a thread for them? That's what we normally do so we have (usually) a safe place to go to gush about our favorites :)

    At first I thought she was wearing a brace on her right foot. On further consideration, I realized it was on the wrong foot. Unless the image had been reversed.

    ETA: Checked the printing on the background equipment, it is not reversed.

    Such great news. I really hope they can make it to Worlds. As kwanfan says we don't know why Kaitlyn was 'rolling her eyes' Andrew could've said 'We're eating nachos and cheese for supper' and she was like 'yeah right:rolleyes:' so let's not judge cause truly we have no idea and never will.
    Alixana and (deleted member) like this.

    Her tinniest leg is the left so I guess it's the left tibia that was fractured

    Oh yes, I see what you mean. Muscle is lost so quickly. What type of rehab would be usual, pingu?

    ETA: I think it was the fibula.

    Mobilization, strengthening and proprioception. She has probably kept training her thigh muscles, now she will start to carefully move again her ankle, to gradually strengthen its muscles and to learn "feeling" again the ankle during every movement, in order to prevent injuries during its temporary weakness.

    Do you think she will wear some sort of tensor or stabilizer when she starts training again? I wonder if she is back on the ice yet.

    I think she will tweet something when she'll back on the ice.
    From yesterday pic it seems they are training on floor or doing pilates... in Toronto ...don't know.

    Maybe she could wear some tape on the ankle when she's wearing skates at the beginning, but to decide whether she should war a brace or not you should know what kind of fracture she had, how the ankle is doing and so on.

    Yes, that would be Toronto. They were pictured with Je-an Salas, who has a pilates studio there. Je-an used to dance with the National Ballet, and she now teaches pilates to the National Ballet dancers.

    Found this on Youtube. PJ uploaded it during Canadian Nationals, before Kaitlyn had her cast removed. The video provides a little more detail about how the accident occurred.

    Fingers crossed for them. I came back from Canadians convinced we really need them to make it to Worlds this year. Of course, I don't want her to go if it would cause any long-term problems for her.

    Worlds starts in 4 weeks and 4 days. If W/P are not on the ice yet, it doesn't seem possible that they would be ready.

    i thought v/m suffered an injury reputation in 2009 and 2011 seasons which resulted in their placements at Worlds (as some have put it anyway). wouldnt w/p go through such if they really push it in this Worlds? why bother skating if kaitlyn is still healing and judges wouldnt really be giving them scores their programs deserve because of that injury reputation? besides, prior to kaitlyn's injury, their programs didnt really win judges over as much as their previous programs did anyway. i'd rather have kaitlyn heal and save her condition for next year's olympics.

    "injury reputation " meaning that their (VM) score were lower and not deserved ???
    In my experience, it happens the contrary :)
    anyway judges look at the performance, not at the past.

    The fact that the Fd was not "loved " by judges and some audience, well they changed it, almost totally, so I still hope they can make it, to see it, this FD has some beautiful stuff !! The deserve a chance !!!

    Obviously they will not risk K's health for any reasons.

    Plus this year is Russia year....so they would have been behind Bobrova even with je suis malade !!!:rolleyes:

    Saw on twitter that CBC Toronto is going to have a piece on Weaver's return to the ice on the 6pm news.


    Best of luck to Kaitlyn & Andrew in the coming weeks and hopefully they can skate in London at world!
