    Coughlin undergoes surgery

    JOHN COUGHLIN UNDERGOES SUCCESSFUL HIP SURGERY



    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Dec. 5, 2012) – John Coughlin, the 2012 U.S. pairs champion with partner Caydee Denney, is recovering after having successful surgery Tuesday to repair a torn labrum in his left hip. The surgery was performed in Vail, Colo., by Dr. Marc Philippon.

    Coughlin’s rehabilitation will take place at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. No exact timetable has been set for his return to practice.

    Denney and Coughlin train in Colorado Springs under Dalilah Sappenfield and Larry Ibarra. Earlier this fall, they won silver at 2012 Nebelhorn Trophy before winning a pair of bronze medals at their Grand Prix assignments, 2012 Hilton HHonors Skate America and 2012 Rostelecom Cup.

    Ouch. Well, this is one case where I would be much surprised if USFS doesn't give them a bye to Worlds, if John is OK by March...but how long does it take someone to recover from this sort of surgery? Two spots for Olympics is beginning to look impossible.

    I think we will have 2 spots for Olys... if John gets well. I think we'd have had 3 if MBM hadn't decided to end her competitive career (IMO she and Brubaker were actually our best long term hope for international success, but I know, I have to let it go...)

    I agree two spots is realistic but three is a huge long shot. They would have to count on one or two Russian teams to crumble plus hope the no. 2 Chinese and or the Japanses make some huge mistakes and then pray both Canadian teams are behind the top American team. That's a lot to ask for. You might as well as for world peace.

    This is the same injury Alissa Czisny had last season. Worlds starts March 11, less than 4 months from now; it would seem unlikely that he'll be back in time.

    I'm sorry to hear this news. I am not a big D/C fan, but this is a very unfortunate, tough break for them.

    Goodness, it certainly does swing the door wide open for the rest of the U.S. pairs.

    And for the silver? Vise/Baldwin?
