Thanks for being the first to provide confirmation via a legitimate news source, Alvyne. Your article link has now been cross-posted in the Grand Prix thread here in GSD and the Skate Canada Entries thread in the Kiss and Cry forum.
If they are not skating together hopefully the spot will be released to another team.
I guess injury's not as bad as a breakup re D&D
I guess after so many knee issues with Jessica over the years, I guess it's Bryce's turn. I wish them a really speedy recovery, and hope they come back stronger than ever to win Canadians this season.
I think sammyf is right re: Hecht. I was surprised she was at Regionals after having competed for Hungary. Also, USFS has different rules for competing in the qualifying season, whether you are or are not a US citizen, if you have competed for another federation than were in place when Kavaguti did that. I was just assuming she was a US citizen & had complied with those new rules - unfortunate Regionals results for her though!
Skate Canada has a notice up on their website that D/D have withdrawn fron Skate Canada because Bryce injured his knee in practice.
A little more information about how Bryce’s injury occurred: Davison injured knee attempting triple loops: source
Has there been any more news on the MRI results?Canadian pairs skater Bryce Davison injured his knee while attempting triple loops in training, according to a source who saw the injury occur.
Davison was in a monitoring session with coach Petra Burka in Toronto last week when he started trying the triples.
The source told CBCSports.ca that he went up for a jump, popped it into a single, came down a bit awkwardly on his landing knee and was in immediate pain.
I'm watching Skatebuzz right now for the pairs practice @Skate Canada. Is anyone else watching? One of the commentators seemed to suggest that Bryce has already had surgery. Commentator wouldn't provide many details due to lack of medical knowledge but indicated that the problem was something like a bone spur on the back of Davison's knee coming loose. Commentator also indicated that recovery time is unknown at this time but expected that D/D would be out for the entire Grand Prix series.
That's what I heard anyway. Maybe someone can correct/expand anything I've not gotten right :0)
This is another sad news and its too bad because if there was a team that really needed to skate in the Grand Prix this season and make the final, that team was Dube&Davison. They have stagnated so badly the last 2 seasons, and this was their golden chance to regain momentun and take advantage of the current field.
Even if Davison's injury isn't career-ending, it would appear that it is at the very least season-ending, since that type of injury is slow to heal.
That said, I hope Bryce recovers soon! Seems like we have an awful number of injuries/ surgeries this season. Best of luck to those on the path to recovery and may the rest stay healthy!
It doesn't seem like he can heal soon, so I'm going to wish that he heals well.
