    Hi all

    I am wondering why Julia Lipnitskaya is not mentioned in the article.

    Julia was unfortunately injured earlier this week and had to withdraw :(, Christina Gao replaced her.

    Welcome to Golden Skate, sjakob52! Post long & often.

    Julia had a concussion, and had to withdraw. Brain injuries, as we are learning, are nothing to fool around with.
    Wishing her a speedy recovery!

    Gao qualified when 14-year-old Russian Julia Lipnitskaia withdrew from the competition earlier this week due to injury. The Harvard freshman surprised many by winning her first Grand Prix medal—a silver at Skate America, to begin her season. A credible fourth place finish at Trophée Bompard made Gao the first alternate to the competition, and now the sixth entry.

    This article is exceptionally well-written, JR. You topped even your usual high standard of excellence.
