Kostner must undergo surgery for a nodule in the left knee but she wants to wait the end of the season. In the meanwhile, she can't always train regurarly and cannot train flip and lutz. She will keep the easier jump layout this season. She's facing the pain day by day (right now isn't even 100 % sure to compete at nationals right after gpf) so it's not easy to say in which conditions she will compete at Euros. And with Lepisto being injured too and still recovering, it's very difficult to say if these two will compete for the gold as usual. Maybe not. Anyway Korpi should control her nerves, this time she has a real chance for the first place. The Russians should better be well prepared, too.
