I was thinking about the situation with 2011 Worlds being cancelled 1 week before its beginning.
What would skaters normally do to 'recalibrate' themselves to peak for a big event that was postponed at the last minute??
Do they take a week off to 'cool down'? Do they practice more lightly? A lot of skaters were probably hitting their peak at the moment it was cancelled.
Can skaters keep up their top form until late April or May?
Are their greater risks of injury from training too hard for too long?
