Figure skater Dube avoids another serious injury after major fall
(Posted: April 19, 2009, 7:08 PM by Noah Love)
I've always found this pair scary because of some basic (lack of proper) technique issues. If I see a thread title "pairs accident" I would automatically think of them.
Also, apparently there are interpersonal trust issues as well (short hearsay version: they were a couple, split, she started dating a mutal friend and he reacted badly).
poor technique + lack of trust = disaster waiting to happen
I think they should call it a day and find new partners (and he needs to strenghthen up somewhat and they both need work on basic pairs technique).
^ If there really is a rift, maybe they should split up. But if they want to compete in Vancouver, I doubt that is an option for now.
Did anyone see a video of the accident? The news reports all say she fell while they were doing a triple twist during the Gala, but don't they usually perform a triple twist for competitions and only a double twist for exhibitions?
