    Aliona Savchenko

    IFS is reporting she had a serious fall in practice yesterday!

    "Aliona Savchenko had a serious fall in practice in Chemnitz yesterday, but coach Ingo Steuer refused to tell the agency person what exactly happened."

    Not to make light of any fall in pairs' skating, but is it normal for there to be any kind of "It is reported...." at all unless it's serious?

    (I hope this is not the case!)

    That they reported a fall is very disturbing. I'm betting she was trying the 3A again. I guess we'll hear soon enough if she was injured.

    in the german press the fall was confirmed.
    like said before, ingo steuer didn´t tell anything exactly.

    afterwards they cancelled an award show that night, wer s/s should be awarded team of the year and steuer coach of the year.

    hope the best.

    I agree, that the fact it was reported a fall is upsetting. Pairs frequently have nasty falls, so I'll admit I'm nervous.

    I hope this isn't too serious.
    Pairs' skating is a hazardous business.

    I'm very worried as well! Ingo usually never mentions injuries with his skaters so I wonder why it got mentioned this time. I really hope she is ok.

    Poor Aliona! I hope it is not VERY serious, but I guess it is serious if they had to cancel an award show.

    Very upsetting news. I pray Aliona is not too badly hurt, and that she will fully recover asap.

    I'm kind of hoping that Ingo just mentioned the fall to explain why they had to skip the awards ceremony. He said something about wanting to get back in line for Euros (right) so hopefully its not that serious. Her and Robin are such a special team; I feel like they are team that won't be fully appreciated until they retire. (not that they aren't appreciated but..)

    makes sense- maybe they did not really want to go kidding aside- there pair skaters are pretty hearty so if she is hurt you know it was not just a small thing

    Well absolutely, I'm sure falls happen all the time. I hope she's okay and if need be better to skip Euros and come back healthy for worlds.

    Run through Google Translate:

    Shock to the figure skating world champions Aliona Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy: At a training accident on Saturday injured Savchenko and place must be two weeks before the European Championships in Sheffield a break. Further details of his fall and injury to the runner did not call coach Ingo Steuer. He hoped that his pair em all to get back on track.
