Rachael Flatt, a 2010 U.S. Olympian hampered by a lingering ankle injury, placed ninth in ladies singles.
"The last week has been pretty rough with my ankle," she said. "I'm hoping we can figure out what's going on with this injury because it just really has not healed over the last two years fully. I think we're probably going to have it reimaged and go from there.
"We just haven't seen anything (in tests) in the past and it's been incredibly frustrating. We'll see what happens."
I'm not sure how I feel about this. I defended her in the past but if she is having continuing problems with an injury it makes no sense to me why she is competing instead of taking some time off to heal. It's clear she isn't in the best shape and I think she is damaging her reputation with the judges by skating poorly at these international events.
