This may put a damper on such plans for a while: http://instagram.com/p/lCh3EJzQWQ/ Ouch!
Poor Tuk Hoping she can recover soon and recover well!

I hear outside a million panicking birds, and know even out there comfort is done with; it has shattered even the stars, this creature at last come home to me.
Rockin' Finnish commentator: "And that was supposed to be a flip but it turned out to be a flop."
Mishin seems to have missed the memo on CoP. I don't think he will have a hugely successful skater on the level of his past pupils until he realizes that times have changed and learn how to maximize points. He can't use the same plan on his young skaters that he uses for Plushenko. Plus he could've easily gotten Plush the gold in Vancouver if a tiny bit more strategy was employed.
half way through her Russia Cup Final free program. She stumbled awkwardly. Looked like quite a nasty injury to her ankle. Hope it's not too serious, and that she recovers quickly
And I think both of them will be fine as long as Mishin resists the urge to take things out of programs that the choreographer gives them. I know Artur was resisting that sort of thing last year, and his Anna Karenina was wonderful (and I even liked the flamenco short that Jeff Buttle did for him).
Actually, maybe I need to go start a petition. "Petition for Artur to keep Anna Karenina" or maybe just "Petition to put Artur in grey again this season".
I thought I had read somewhere that Artur Gachinski had left Mishin. Is that incorrect information?
I really hope no russian girl will be wiped out of the scene by injuries (or puberty), I'd love to see the full roster, as it's a great one. So I wish Tuktamisheva the best possible recovery.
Oh no! Poor Liza.
Wishing for her full recovery.
Aw, poor Tuk . That's such a classic way to tear a ligament - blade gets stuck in the ice sideways while the body keeps rotating. Unfortunately it can be harder and longer to rehab a torn ligament than a broken bone, but maybe it will turn out to be not such a severe tear. At least the timing of it should allow her to take her time with the rehab. Wishing her a speedy and full recovery!
I think this might end Tuk's career. The straw that breaks the camel's back.
^I hope not. I like her jump technique more than any of the other Russian girls. I'd love to see her fulfill at least some of that potential
