I was there and suspect she had a hip dislocation on her operated side
Oh crap. I'm so bummed for her. She has the heart of a lion!
Your program sucks and your partner just fell: lay down and play dead or think Feck this and do a Th3A at the end of the program: Aliona Savchenko: Definition of a competitor
Oh gosh, that sounds awful.
I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.
Poor Alissa can't catch a break lately
Check out my figure skating blog out at:
Oh no that is horrible news. Hopefully she is ok
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"
Checked here right after seeing the USFS tweet. So sorry to hear this!!! (((Alissa)))
Alissa appears to have landed 3L, 3Lz<, and 3T+2T before injuring herself on a 3F attempt.
So very sad.
Here's hoping it's not as serious as anyone thinks! Poor Alissa!
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?
