Damn right it's a good idea. But people get injured anyway. aliona fell and broke her hand. It happens. She's fallen hundreds of times and not broken her hand. That's just bad luck.And you don't think it's a good idea at least to try to help them be as safe and healthy as they can be within the parameters of this undeniably brutal sport? Because that's all that most of us are asking for.
If some are thinking her coaches were pushing her too hard and this happened at the end of practice when she was tired we will never know. It's a sad situation. I feel for all the injured skaters.
