    Thats what I understood from everything I read..
    Also heard that apparently doctors are recommending about 5 weeks rest before resuming training.

    In the 2006/2007 season, he went undefeated. That is very rare.

    I read it could be up to six weeks but would depend on how quickly he recovers, so hopefully it'll be less - they're still hoping for French Nats, but I doubt that's going to happen, and I don't want him to take unnecessary risks. Laurent Depouilly said that they will not allow Brian on the ice next week even if Brian wants to!

    Brian went undefeated that season, but not uninjured - in February of 2007, he suffered a very similar injury to what happened this time, though a bit less severe. Back then, he had surgery but was back on the ice within a few days. He couldn't train flips and lutzes until a few days prior to Worlds and wasn't 100% in Tokyo, but skated well enough to win the title, with what remains his PB .

    that is good news he doesnt need nationals anyway. And he can benefit of off ice training to stengthen in the meantime.
    I was looking to Tallinn town today and I think i ll go, I hope I see Brian there for the big showdown of Europeans

    I hope he'll be injury-free and ready by the olympics.
    5 weeks of off-training is quite long for a skater..............
    Well, I'll just keep my fingers crossed for him.

    Bon courage, Brian!!!

    Very sad situation. Another excellent competitive skater loses out because of injury.

    Unless you have been a competitive skater, you really don't know how depressing this can be.

    French Nats, Euros, Olys, Worlds. Let's hope he skates them all at his best.
