There should be a delayed broadcast like in previous years, right?
Any news about the new entries for Team Europe??? It's coming up so soon!
Or rather, who do you think will be chosen, and let's forget about the skaters who are busy that day (Carolina Kostner and Stephane Lambiel)
Kiira Korpi has sent a message to Japanese fans. It is on JO website. How sweet!
Dear Japanese fan.
It is sad for me to announce of my withdraw from Japan Open 2011 and Carnival on Ice 2011 due to the small injury on my foot occurred last week. Although my foot is surely getting better, I had some effects on my training and do not think that I can be ready to show my best performance on October 1st in Saitama Super Arena. Please understand how much I am disappointed of this injury at this last moment. However, I promise you that I will be back to Japan in the near future to show my performance to great skating fans in Japan.
That is really nice of Kiira.
Plushy sent a message too.
My dear Japanese fans.
It is pity for me to announce you that I decided to withdraw from Japan Open 2011 and Carnival on Ice 2011 which will be held in Saitama Super Arena on October 1st. As you all know well, I did my best to train my body and skating to show my best performance to my important fans and friends in Japan since I decided to participate in these event on May. However, my doctor finally advised me to stop training until October 10th for complete recovery of my injury . Believe or not, I was seriously irresolute if I should participate in Japan Open 2011 with ignoring the advice from my doctor to show my performance for my dear friends in Japan. After long deliberation, I finally decided to obey to the advice of my doctor and withdraw from Japan Open 2011 and Carnival on Ice2011.
I really hope that you people understand my decision which was not easy for me.
Lastly, I will promise you that I will be back to Japan to show my best performance to you in the near future.
Get well soon, Plushy!!!
