    I'm so happy they're doing well now since her injury. That was a terrific article, and I'm really looking forward to seeing them live at Worlds. They deserve cudos for their beautiful programs and their perserverance in spite of injury. Wishing them the best of luck. I hope they Kick A$$ at Worlds.:)

    Thank you! A great article.

    Wow! It must be almost like an absolutely new dance. Even before I knew it was 90% I didn't think that they were going to be able to show all the changes that they worked on, since the break because of Kaitlyn's injury was so long. It's great to know that I was wrong. I just hope that they are not overdoing it. As for the costumes, I really liked Kaitlyn's FD costume, but I am still excited to see the new one. I didn't care about the SD costume that much, so a change could be nice. Thank you very much, pani!

    THIS.

    also, thanks so much for the updates NarumiAyane, pani, tut88 and everyone else who provided them!

    so excited they are working some more with my beloved Shae! She did a significant amount of Je Suis Malade, and I am confident she can make the needed changes and give them an even better product than what they had previously:)

    I'm so glad they were able to make the changes they wanted to make. I'm wishing them every bit of good luck possible at World's. They've had such miserable luck this year, they deserve some good.

    Selfishlessly, I am glad they have new FD costumes. The concept of Kaitlyn's costume fit with their story, but it just did her no favors at all on the ice, particularly those tights painted to look like marble. She's such a pretty girl, I hate to see her in a less than flattering costume.

    I still can't understand how a skater can go from surgery, months off the ice, and crutches to Worlds in three weeks. Please God she doesn't reinjure herself. I love this team and hope they skate well and safely.

    I cant understand this too. I could only think - injury wasnt so serios. like they said. After all she start skating just after Nationals (like we saw in clip).
    I could understand more when will see them on ice.

    There is a difference between broken fibula and, for instance, broken shinbone/tibia. The second would be more "serious", and would take much more time to heal. But I hope that pani didn't want to say that they lied about her fibula being broken. That would be an absurd thought, as they would gain nothing at all from such a lie.

    As far as I know, Kaitlyn Weaver's exact injury was never confirmed publicly by her or Skate Canada (in an article or press release). The "broken fibula" was posted on FSU as hearsay information.

    Read today Anjelika Krylova interwie on russion.
    http://fsrussia.ru/news/496_anzhelika-krylova-rossijskie-pary-ochen-silny-no-pobedit-silnejshij/

    I am not sure, but this is google translation what she said about Keythlynn injury

    And she said W-P return on ice only 2 weeks ago.
    So its hard for me to imaging, how with seriouse injury they could not only back on ice (i could understand this) but re-work 90% of FD. Thats what i want to say. Nothing more :)

    They were always hopeful and optimistic that they could get ready for worlds if she healed well so whatever the precise nature of the fracture/break it must have been such that there was some cause for hope. Some people heal well and some don't. Kaitlyn and her team probably did everything they could to give her the best environment to heal. Having V&M and even a slightly weakened W&P going in as the top two teams for Canada is better than V&M and G&P. Hopefully she isn't pushing herself too much, she seemed to accept in some interviews that she would do the right thing as Sochi is the priority so fingers crossed.

    Their return to competition will be one of the highlights in London for me so crossing one set of fingers for V&M and the other for W&P. If all goes well I'd love to see W&P get the spot on the WTT just to give them more time to practice their programs and perform them one more time as I can't imagine they┬┤ll keep them for the Olympic season.

    All the rework on the FD was prior to the injury wasn't it? I recall an interview in December where they discussed the changes to their program and how excited they were to show it. Then she got injured and it never happened.

    But on 90%? And they not only need to re-work t, but did FD polish. And for me looked werid - from clips she retun on ice after Nationals+they not just retun on ice, but started working with Shae-Lynn.
    Will see, how they will look at WCh.
    I cant understand, did they re-place iron plate with six screws from her leg or no.

    They had a lot of time to rework that program. Their last grand prix event was Cup of China that ended November 4th. They knew then they didn't make the Grand Prix Final. In an interview with PJKwong posted on November 29th they said they basically went to the drawing board and redid their program. I think the reworked program was well finished before the injury.

    Google translation of Angelika interview:
    About P&B
    About W&P
    Seems like Angelika is crossing her fingers for her two teams as well.

    From her interview iW-P situation didnt look good, when from other W-P interviews all look OK.
    But Anjelika worked with Linichcuk a lot time and she often play with injuries and then her skaters won big competitions (like Grishuck-Platov in 1995 or Lobacheva-Averbuch in 2002).
    I dont want to say nothing, but i am not sure about nothing now.

    Pani, if you are not sure and don't want to say anything, why are you saying it anyway? I'd like you to justify why you would make unfounded allegations to diminish the herculean effort that this remarkable young woman named Kaitlyn Weaver has put forth in order to be able to skate at the World Championships in London.

    Also, both you and Sylvia might want to find and view two Youtube videos:

    In a P.J. Kwong interview done with Kaitlyn and Andrew at Canadians in January, Kaitlyn clearly states that she "broke her fibula."

    In the CBC News Road to the Olympics segment, there is a close-up shot of the scar on Kaitlyn's ankle. I doubt she painted it on.

    It never ceases to amaze me how some posters feel they can level all sorts of accusations against skaters. But heaven help the person who makes any negative comments about the same poster's favorite skaters.

    beebee, I think you misunderstood my post since I never meant to imply that Kaitlyn Weaver's injury wasn't serious. I merely wanted to point out that Kaitlyn herself never mentioned the exact nature of her injury publicly that I knew of... I wasn't aware of Pj Kwong's video interview of her, so thank you for mentioning it.

    I wish her and Andrew all the best at Worlds.

    :cheer: I think Kaitlyn is an incredibly strong and determined woman and I can't wait to see her and Andrew skate next week. I think Canada has two ice dance teams to be very proud of with two tough females who fight through pain and injuries to do what they love to do, skate and compete. I wish a fantastic worlds to them both.

    Skate Canada had a press conference about her injury.
    I think she was busy taking care of herself, it must have been really a bad period for her, so I understand why she never talked about it. Plus they don't have much publicity anyway.

    Like you I wish them all the best :)

    Yes I agree !!
    The last lines over all !
    Some posters have have the bad habit to diminish not their favorite skater in order to give them less credit and less "publicity ".

    I'm excited to see Kaitlyn and Andrew again in competition. I hope they feel really proud after coming back from a nasty injury no matter where they place. Pictures 9 and 10 are from their practice today in this link: http://spiral9509.tistory.com/m/post/slideshow/id/523

    When Kaitlyn was previously injured several years ago, she mentioned in an interview at that time that she was a fast healer.


    Here is the PJ interview video...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tbl_Vjnp8Lo

    P.S. I wonder if the "extra bits" will set-off airport metal detectors?


    Appears to be the SD costumes. I wonder what the new FD costume is like?

    I know, that's why I was not referring to Pani
