    Posted today in the Chinese skating updates and (hearsay) reports thread:

    According to a USFS press release dated November 9th, Caitlin Yankowskas/Joshua Reagan "were forced to withdraw from both of their Grand Prix assignments, Cup of China and NHK Trophy, after Reagan sustained a rib injury in practice last month."

    The last known article update on Yrétha Silété's knee injury was posted in mid-September which stated that "she does not plan to be back on the ice before January at best": http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...=1#post3687353

    Polina Shelepen withdrew from NHK Trophy due to a foot injury (Russian article dated Nov. 8): http://rsport.ru/figure_skating/20121108/629299254.html

    Kemp/King are listed to compete at British Nationals this week.

    After having withdrawn from the Cup of China, Artur Dmitriev is competing in the Russian Cup V in Moscow this week (currently 2nd after SP with a score of 71.45).

    Adrian Schultheiss underwent back surgery in late October - thread in GSD: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...an-Schultheiss

    Kemp/King skated at nationals but had no jumps so there is probably still an injury. http://www.johnds.org/British_12_13/..._SP_Scores.pdf

    Thanks, sammyf. IIRC, it was an injury to Stacey Kemp's knee that kept them from competing at Skate America and Canada this fall.

    Lipnitskaia has withdrawn from the Grand Prix Final, as posted in the Russian news thread earlier today:

    As of today, Christina Gao has officially been added to the GPF to replace Lipnitskaia. Best wishes to Julia for a speedy recovery, and good luck to Christina at her first GPF!

    I forgot to include another injury withdrawal from the Grand Prix - Daisuke Murakami's shoulder injury at NHK Trophy that resulted in him not being able to finish his SP. Hopefully he will be recovered in time for Nationals later this month.

    Thanks Sylvia, this is a very useful thread IMO. If someone has any question about the type of injuries these skaters have, I can try to answer.

    vartmann/van cleave are scheduled to skate at golden spin in zagreb and at german nationals in mid-december.
    so it seems like he is back on ice and kind of ready for competition.
    fingers crossed.

    Re-posting from the Belgian Nationals thread in Kiss and Cry re. Jorik Hendrickx:

    It 's been confirmed that Gabriela KUBOVA / Dmitry KISELEV (CZE) split sometime after their 8th place finish at Ondrej Nepela Memorial in Sept., reportedly due, in part, to his health issues (Kubova is now skating with Matej Novak). Relevant excerpt from the CZE/SVK/POL Nationals thread in Kiss and Cry:
    Quote Originally Posted by oubik View Post

It wasn´t easy decision for Gabi but since Dima´s "future" was sure thing only till Nationals and he surely would need surgery soon, they get into decision to let Dima heal sooner. The doctors are not optimistic about his competition future, thus he would like to start coaching and studying and is also applying for Czech citizenship in which case Gabi´s family is really helpfull. So the end of the partnership wasn´t that rude and they are still friends and close together (Dima and Gabi) as far as I know.

    With Hendrickx injured I wonder if the Belgian federation might approach Kevin van Der Perren to ask if he would be willing to compete at Euros and/or London.

    Here's the separate news thread in GSD about John Coughlin's surgery yesterday to repair a torn labrum in his left hip: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...to-Hip-Surgery

    Neither Sui/Han (CHN) nor Adrian Schultheiss (SWE) is listed on their respective Nationals rosters.

    Alexandra Najarro (4th in Senior at 2012 Canadians) is taking the 2012-13 season off reportedly due to injury -- hearsay info is posted in this thread: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...nada-Challenge

    Sadly, add Ashley Wagner to the list with her *hip pointer* injury (aka "bruised hip").

    It looks like it may be the case of the last one standing whom wins. Slow & steady is the way to go.

    Evgeni's smart to pick & choose his competitions, save his body for the most important one of all, the Olympics. Of course he earned this privilege, the rest have yet to prove themselves, thus leading to injury...

    David King talks about his and Stacey Kemp's injuries: http://www.newsandstar.co.uk/sport/o...errerPath=home
    The Carlisle-born sportsman could have been forgiven if he appeared to have had trouble even walking as he is suffering from an ankle ligament tear.

    But he put his pain aside to dance on the ice to take the title at the British Figure Skating and Synchro Championships.

    And what’s even more remarkable is that dance partner Stacey Kemp was also crocked, recovering from a posterior cruciate [knee] ligament rupture. ...

    They had missed eight weeks-worth of skating through their ailments but were determined to feature in the championships...

    Their attentions now turn to January’s European Figure Skating Championships in Zagreb, where they will attempt to qualify for the World Championships in Ontario.

    Still waiting on that one...it was posted in GS but "?" behind it, so there hasn't been any confirmation on that.........I sure hope it's not a break, but a sprain is not so good either.

    The original source is International Figure Skating, though no additional confirmation there, either.

    I really, really hope that rumor is inaccurate.

    But if so, best not to rush the recovery. Thank goodness there's still 3 months till London though it'd pretty much have to be about qualifying three spots for Canada in Sochi rather than aiming for the podium.

    Daisuke Murakami shared this photo of himself post-shoulder surgery yesterday: http://murakamidaisuke.tumblr.com/po...17969094/12-10
    He will start rehabilitation next month.
