    She says that at the moment she is not able to skate. Recovery is already better but she doesn't want to risk her participation for the upcoming World Championships.

    Alisa Mikonsaari will take Korpi's place at Euros.

    That's such a pity, she was in a such good shape this season so far. I hope she can fully recover for worlds

    Poor thing. I wonder if she'll be better by worlds? In her older age, once the injuries start they tend to pile up. I hope she takes the time to heal completely before coming back...

    Kiira is 24 and at that age, injuries tend to become chronic.

    Oh, no! That's really too bad. She's one of the delights of the European championship. I hope she recovers for Worlds. Achilles tendon injuries are tricky.

    Again, injuries keep her away from the big events, this year that she was ready to fight for the Gold... Now, the podium is wide open even for Sotnikova I think...

    though I dislike Korpii for her beauty PCS I always feel sorry for injuries, she let the wide open for Elene or Sotnikova
    Sotnikova might get bronze even with her 2 falls in LP

    on the other hand, happy this will really give Liza the chance to capitalize on Euros for the Gold

    I'm glad to hear it's achilles tendonitis and not an achilles rupture like Surya had. It seems like something that will get better with rest.

    Tendonitis is a persistent problem. It subsides with rest, but tends to recur when normal activity is resumed. That doesn't bode well for Kiira's Olympic season.
