    Iam so sorry to hear that. I was really hoping she would skate well. I thought she had a good chance for a gold this year at Europeans. Her short program is so beautiful this year.

    Why is everyone saying she had a shot at Euros? Is Kostner not going to Euros?

    It is too bad she is missing Europeans. It would have been great to see her go up against Kostner and the Russians. I really dont think she would have won, I think that would have still been Kostner, but who knows, Carolina can be inconsistent sometimes too and is probably still building her season at this point.

    Sorry she'll have to skip Europeans due to this, but hope she recovers in time for Worlds!

    This is bad news. So many injuries this season! Best wishes to Kiira. She’s a really beautiful skater.

    No, I doubt Liza will be able to top Carolina. Carolina's jumps aren't as strong but she's got Liza beat pretty much everywhere else. I think with Korpi out Liza has a great shot at silver which is great for her first time at Euros...

    I also think Caro will win. She has actually become one of the most consistent senior skaters in the world the last two years, which is astonishing given her past.

    Yesterady was a very bad day for me because of this news. I had so much hopes for Kiira this season. I thought it was her season, the best she ever had, two wonderful programs, lutz and flip back on track, her first GPF. Then that injury before GPF followed by not such a good performance ant than by a disastrous performance at LP nationals. It is true that she had a perfect SP but after watching the LP I knew something happened.
    My hope was she would be european champion. She could beat Carolina, she was once first after SP, several times second so this year it could had happened because she showed more consistency in LP than ever and gained back the lutz and flip. And I would have loved to see her and Kostner fighting for the first place. But I already know that she and her team are very wise, they always put Kiira's health in first, as they did last year when she withdrew from worlds. Now it is very important that she can compete well at worlds to gain back the 2 spots for the Olympics. Of course Finland will lose the 2 spots for Euros next year because I dont see Juulia in top 10 but that is less important.
    Ar least somebody will win her first european medal this year. Maybe Adelina or Liza or maybe both. Or somebody that no one expects.

    Kostner vs Tuktamisheva can be like 65-55 TES/PCS for Liza and 55-65 for Carolina! Kostner could get low TES and Liza would have to be flawless on all the jumps. So Liza could not fall below 65 TES if Kostner gets like near 65-70 PCS and Liza gets like 50-55 PCS. Kostner only lost to Liza by a point in 2011 TEB. So it's very competitive and could be close but because Kostners content on jumps is so easy and mistakes are rare for her now - I know she made a lot of mistakes when she added back in the lutz at a recent competition but don't know what she did at Italian nationals on jumps- but jumps are kind of irrelevent for her in some ways with her near 70 PCS so liza needs like all triple lutzes and triple flips and no mistakes can be afforded because even if her pCS gets past 55 it's not going to be 70 like kostner.

    She was very good (not great) at her Nationals, and mostly clean. She hit her lutz at the top of the program. I found her program very lacking in transitions, particularly in her jump set-ups (nothing new there). She takes a looooong time to set up her lutz.
