    World's just lost one more beautiful face. Too bad for Korpi and the Finns they could be down to one lady in 2013 that means Korpi v. Laura a dual to the death - do I hear Canada calling lol???

    Looking at the top Finns of the past years, I wonder if there's something in their training methods that makes them injury prone. Others get injuries too, but I think Kiira, Laura, Susanna and Jenni all got more than their share of them.

    That's an interesting thought. Someone should evaluate the training.

    So sorry for Kiira.

    Wish her a fast, and more importantly full recovery.
    Rest enough, girl, please.

    Look forward to seeing both Kiira and Laura come back injury-free and strong next season.

    Next year's nationals should be a barn burner. I kind agree a bit with Adam but in a different way - another pretty graceful skater, take a way her physical beauty, she is another good, feminine and graceful skater but her jumps are nothing to write home about and her spins are nice and neat but again no oooooh or awe.

    Sorry to hear about this. :(

    The best competitions are when everybody skates their best and you win, but without Kiira there the competition goes down a tad bit imho. But then again the same thing could be said without Yuna Kim nor Miki Ando competing as well, so that's just the way the ball rolls. As a consequence, this will give all the other ladies a better shot at medalling.

    Here's to them making the most of it!

    I like her---something awkward about her movement, very athletic more than beautiful presentation. But she is just so stunning and her costumes-her beauty is really amazing. I will miss the movie star of the sport. I hope she isn't to badly hurt. We may never see Laura again-2 seasons-serious indeed. I am kinda glad she won the bronze. maybe she won't be back. I have a strong hunch she will try next year for the country and Olympic team but she will not be successful in her comeback. I hope they will have Kiira. Sorry, Finland!
