    ...despite being inexplicably held up by the judges year after year......sorry, but it's true.

    Poor Alissa.
    Those who never succeed themselves are always the first to tell you how.

    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    Here's her program. I'm glad I can't see it well, but it appears it was on a Triple Flip

    Sad to see.
    It appears that her free skate music was "Gone with the Wind"

    Alissa appears to have landed 3L, 3Lz<, and 3T+2T before injuring herself on a 3F attempt.

    So sad. She was never making it to Worlds this year, but she could have gotten herself back in the mix for next years Olympic team and next season with a decent showing. I wonder if this is the end of her career, it will be impossible for her to make the Olympic team next year now probably.

    I was kind of worried about this. Hope she turns out to be ok! Wasn't it a bit soon to be competition ready at her level after a major surgery like that?
