    It's good to hear that Menshov is recovering well!

    I have heard from several people that Paul Poirier broke his ankle this spring. Has there been anything written about it in the media that I have missed? I would really like to know how his recovery is coming along and when he can expect to be skating again.

    I had heard this, too, and was wondering about his recovery. Hope he is healing well, if it's true.

    Re: Poirier status?

    Thanks for the news, moon.

    FWIW, this morning @KharisRalph tweeted a photo of Poirier. He is sitting on a bench, and to my eyes, looks as if he could be rinkside? But his feet are not visible, so cannot tell whether he is wearing skates. And no indication when the photo was shot. Could have been taken this morning, or in recent days, or in the distant past, ... or ???

    (BTW, in the photo, Poirier is knitting. I love a man who is not shy about his needlework. ]

    I thought his partner, Piper Gilles, skated in the show with Johnny Weir in Jamestown, NY. Was Paul skating with her at the show?
    From Gilles's postings on social media, looks like she has been back in Colorado a lot of recent, and she mentioned that she would be back there in June as well.
    So, perhaps Paul is still recovering.

    FWIW, I had noticed that in Weir's lengthy blog about the Jamestown show, he thanked Gilles by name ... but did not mention Poirier. The implication to me is that Poirier was not there.
    (And Poirier did not appear among the Jamestown photos accompanying Weir's blog, although Gilles did.)

    Oh dear, this is not looking good at all. I really sense in ice dancing the flow is with the Americans - they can do no wrong. D and W, C and B and the Shibutanis. Canada looks rocky with Weaver and Poje and Virtue and Moir. V and M need to recommit and get some great piece. In my mind thye can go do a classic and deserve to win in some ways because they have pushed the envelope and streatched themselves. though I like D and W and kind of want them to have gold imho they have skated too safe to o same for years. But life isn't fair - failing injury D and W are our next OGM.

    I believe Piper and Paul are scheduled to perform in the Skate for Hope Show in Columbus, OH this weekend.

    I do not see Poirier in this cast photo taken at Skate for Hope, although Piper Gilles is in it.

    Does anyone know whether Poirier skated in Columbus?
    Or if not, was any information on his injury/recovery officially announced?

    (2) BTW, speaking of ice dance: at the end of May, Madison Hubbell fell on a three turn and hit her head.

    According to her IN blog of Jun 7, per doctor's orders, she could not skate in shows on two weekends. But she was scheduled to return to the ice this past week.

    This past week, however, I was a little clumsy and fell on a three turn. Embarrassing, I know! I smacked my head, and although the doctor has said I will be fine, he wants me to take a little break for my brain to heal. ....

    I had to cancel our show last weekend in Oakland, since show lights and spinning wasn't a recommended activity. And this weekend is the annual show at the Detroit Skating Club. The doctor didn't want me to participate in the show either ...

    As I get back onto the ice, and back into my nanny duties next week, I will start my next blog. ....

    As reported by Madison Hubbell she is recovering from a concussion....tricky business.

    I haven't seen anything reported by Poirier which is odd because he and his partner have been quite aggressive up to now with marketing themselves. However, I have been told by several people that attended a skating event on May 4 in Mississauga, Canada that it was announced at the event that Poirier would not be skating because he had fractured his ankle the day before in practice. So, he would be about 5 weeks into recovery. If his rehab is anything like Kaitlyn Weavers he hopefully will not have too much to worry about. An unfortunate beginning to the Olympic season for both of these teams. It is so coincidental that both dances teams that are contenders in the U.S. and Canada for the third Olympic position are injured. It will be most interesting to follow their recovery and see if it has any affect on their season. H/D are skating at Skate Canada and G/P are at NHK and Rostelecom. Luckily these injuries have occurred early on.
    I would expect that H/D have had time to have their choreography completed but G/P only announced their music a week or so before his accident.

    Best of luck to both teams.

    I was directed to this thread when I asked about Paul in another forum, I was finding his absence from scheduled shows odd and I was beginning to wonder about what was happening. I agree with you that it's odd that neither of them has mentioned anything on Twitter, I mean, getting injured is something that happens in sports regularly, I wonder if it could be some contractual restriction, since they were booked for shows perhaps they couldn't say in advance they weren't going... I'm just guessing.

    Paul did not attend Skate For Hope. He is about 5 weeks into recovery following an injury to his ankle.

    The latest on Plushenko's injury:

    http://en.rsport.ru/other_sports/201...667914745.html

    According to fan reports - for more details, see his fan thread:

    http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/sho...ushenko/page21

    - from Mishin's training camp where he is currently, he started off doing single jumps, and has now moved on to doubles.

    And now he has done triple Axels!

    Forget any other comeback. The moment he completes his first full programs in competition, it will seal the deal as one of the greatest comebacks in the history of figure skating.
