    Kostner out of the GP?

    hate to start rumours, but I read this on F.S.U. and it looks like Kostner injured herself judging from this person's report and will miss at least the first half of the GP season.

    I don't get it. She's off ice for 3 weeks and misses the GP series? Kostner has been assigned TEB (11/16~11/19) and NHK (11/30~12/3) so she should have plenty of time to recover - unless it's a serious injury. Best wishes for her.

    Not a surprise given how much she works herself.

    Semi-major injuries these days pretty much happen to every skater, every year. There's no other way to get around it when you're trying to do so many Triples.

    What a shame for Caroline.

    And all these injuries are terrible for the sport of figure skating, too. It's getting so that championships are decided not by who is the best skater but by who is healthy enough to show up.

    Perhaps a moderator could modify this thread title to either "Kostner out of the Grand Prix?" or "Kostner Injured?" -- just a friendly suggestion.

    Best wishes to Kostner for a speedy and full recovery.

    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    Poor Caro and her family...

    In fact:
    Her father is a hockey coach in Switzerland and he and his team went to some competition. Unfortunatly, they had an accident and the bus was burned and all of them are injured. And- some even died. I didn't understand well is it two or four people. Oh how sorry I am....

    This can't be...no,no....THE WORLD IS CRUSHING DOWN! Skating without Caro- it's like life with no breathing!

    ......

    I'm not an expert, but if Caro is off 3 weeks starting today, it only gives her 2-3 weeks to get back to competitive form for those events. Unless she's able to stroke just can't jump/spin on ice, and do a lot of off ice training, I can't imagine she be ready, and it's not worth risking further injury to get back in form anyway.

    Poor Caro! Hopefully she can recover in time for Nationals/Worlds!

    edited: over on FSU it was reported she has a leg injury and is out until December.

    Oh that is such a shame - I was so looking forward to her "new" Canon SP. She is not known as an early starter, and I'm worried this may have further influence to later competitions as well.

    oh well, that's a shame. But it's the order of business. I wonder if they are any more to come (for major skaters).

    Well, it was more compassion than was shown in the two posts previous to this one . The "let's pick on a poster" posts are really annoying. Can the rest of us have a break please?

    Having said that, I am sorry that Carolina was injured. I wish her well. I hope her father is doing ok. It wasn't clear how badly he was injured. That must be so stressful for everyone.

    Anything for Skating- Remember Carolina has to have been really strong to get as far as she has. I am sure that she can and will fight her way back.

    just a thought

    umm, when someone is callous, it is appalling, and that is why others responded to that post.
    That said, it's the last I'll comment on that
