    She reportedly fell in practice and it resulted in a minor concussion, so it's not actually related to the ankle thing.

    I am sorry for Julia but SUPER excited for Christina. This is a great opportunity for her and if she skates like she did at her first 2 events she will doubtless gain some more international credibility. Either way she'll be getting more international experience which is always so valuable. VERY happy for her!

    I do wonder what she's doing about her Harvard Finals. I have so much respect for her that she is accomplishing so much in skating this year while going there.

    Yes, yes ... you go, Gao! I'm thrilled for her.

    Harvard exams are from Thu Dec 13 - Fri Dec 21, so her presence for her first batch ever seems physically possible. http://www.registrar.fas.harvard.edu/calendar
    Not sayin' that the logistics are ideal for her academically. I hope that her profs will give her extensions for any term papers/projects, but at the very least, her GPF travel will eat up a lot of study time for finals and she will return with jet lag. Ladies SP is on Fri Dec 7, and Harvard classes officially end on Tue Dec 4, so potentially she will miss some last sessions of her courses. And I imagine that while she is off campus during part of reading period, teachers will be offering potentially helpful office hours and some informal study groups of her peers might be meeting.

    Well, she wasn't my favourite, but I'm mildly disappointed and I'm glad it doesn't sound too serious. Good opportunity for Christina, though.

    Team Russia's doctor Yaroslav Bugaev told that Julia must not have ice training for at least two weeks.

    "On Wednesday during training Julia unsuccessfully fell and was injured. At entry of rotation she lost balance, injuried a chin and got slight concussion. Doctors recommended her not to compete. For this reason, unfortunately, Lipnitskaia withdraws from the Grand Prix Final. Naturally, for all of us this was a bolt from the blue, but in sports from this anybody isn't insured", - the president of FFKKR Alexander Gorshkov declared

    This means that she could be not really ready for Russian Nationals: they will be just a week (ten days?) after she begins training again...

    poor girl. I hope this does not to turn out to be serious, but it must be emotionally devastating for her to have to miss nationals and the GPF.

    News Gao Accepts Invitation to 2012 Grand Prix Final

    Looks like Lipnitskaia's injury caught up with her. Hope she recovers well. When was the last time the U.S. had two entries for the GPF?

    Oh dear! What an opportunity for Christina but what a shame it came at the expense of Lipnitskaia. Good luck to both of them.

    At least Lipnistkaia did the right thing which is more than I can say about other skaters who waited and waited and essentially did not allow someone else the chance. I know people will say that it wasn't done on purpose but..whatever.
