    Unhappy Evan Bates injured

    According to Aunt Joyce Evan was injured:
    Samuelson and Bates suffered misfortune today. Emily's blade sliced Evan's achilles. He'll be having surgery on Thursday, at which point they'll know the full extent of his injury.
    This is really bad news. I wish him the speedy recovery.

    Yikes! That must have been traumatic to have happen, for both of them! And traumatic to witness! Hopefully, as with athletes and medicine these days, he can recover and skate without a problem.

    Oh dear - this sounds pretty serious.

    I hope he's able to recover quickly. I love S&B and was so looking forward to seeing their new programs this season.

    Wow…that is very sad news…hopefully he can recover quickly and it isn't very serious. It is easy to forget that this can be quite a dangerous sport.

    Dance boots are cut low in the back to allow for better toe point. Most likely she nailed him just above the boot. Ouch (shudder). Best wishes to Evan for a speedy and complete recovery. Is this not the second time they’ve had a cut injury? I seem to remember something about them withdrawing from a competition because Emily had been cut.

    This sounds so serious. Get well, Evan. We'll miss your smiling face until you're back on the ice again.

    He skated over her fingers.

    I hope this isn't extrememly serious and he can get back on the ice soon after his recovery and physical therapy. (((Evan & Emily)))

    Exactly how I would have said it.

    I don't want to be alarmist, but achilles tendon injuries are not a simple recovery. For a singles skater (Bonaly, Derochie) that can effectively end your career as much of your jumping goes away. For pairs/dancers, better chance to return to competition but I believe mobility can be affected.

    I love love love this couple and wish them a full recovery. Don't care how long it takes....let it heal....even if it means to forget this season.
