    I find it offensive when some people doubt about skater's injuries........... Who on earth would do such a shameful thing? To fake injuries in the middle of competing to avoid losing the little title?

    I can only hope everything's gonna be fine at the worlds with V/M.

    I think it was a combination of the first two, but not in the sense the OP proposed. I think that a combination of error and pain may have triggered a belief that she already had re-injured her knee -- or, at least, the mistake would have been an indication that the pain was something to be worried about. Absent the mistake, I think she may well have considered the pain as not indicating something potentially serious.

    The question isn't whether she had an injury, it's whether the injury was mental, physical, or a combination.

    V&M came 2nd last year at 4CC. Placement this year wasn't as important as showing their programs to the judges for the first time. I have no doubt that she had aggravated the muscle and that both of them wanted to skate but did not want to risk further injury.

    I doubt very much it was a mental situation. I think the mistakes happened in the program due to the leg acting up.

    I don't think it was that important for them to win it.
    So, I think they withdrew because of Tessa's injury.

    I don't think a win was important but showing it to the judges and getting back into competition mode certainly was.

    I can't believe that we've had to wait THIS long to see them again. It seems like forever.
