Watching her short program from yesterday reminded me how much I missed her skating. So sad
So sad.. Wishing her speedy recovery. She'll have a great season in olympic season!
That is just incredibly awful. Hoping, hoping, hoping it's not a severe injury.
this is horrible. what bad luck...she is the last person who deserves something like this after a big injury. hoping and praying she has a quick and full recovery and that it isn't serious. i also noticed the user who posted that video closed their account...but her short was wonderful except the mistake on the lutz. it seemed very calm.
So sad for Alissa, after eveything that she's been through I was just hoping to see her skating well again, just this, I don't want that terrible performance to be her last... Does anyone have another link to the video? And which jumps was she attempting? (And, again, the 3F is the jump that causes her injuries! )
Just curious, are some people contacted by coaches, etc. to take down videos or anything? Do they have that sort of power to close an account by contacting Youtube?
If anyone could answer, that I'd be thankful.
And yes, I agree about the short. It looks improved over last year, it gives a more serene feeling to it; I don't know why, it just puts a smile on my face. Also, the Double Axel technique looks a lot better now. She's actually stepping up to the jump instead of "Twisting" into it.
sadly , I think this might be the end of the road for her competitive career
Oh Alissa Please be okay...
Well Alissa is Gone with the Wind for this year and uber fans won't like this but maybe it is time for Alissa to move on. I always could be wrong but she really is pushing the envelope and not necessarily in a good way.
Oh no, this is so sad. After the good SP performance, I was looking forward to seeing the long today, optimistic and hopeful about her condition going into Nationals. I don't think she was overly ambitious about future Worlds/Olympics prospects, she was probably just hoping to have a happier end to her career than the disaster skate at Worlds 2012, so it's sad that she might even be deprived of that. But it also puts things into perspective, her health is more important than competition results and having embarrassing past skates. I hope she's okay. I found this, a part of the long program, but it cuts off in the middle.

Oh, no! What horrible news to wake up to!
There's a poster of FSU that wrote that she dislocated her hip (same hip that was injured last season) and that she has already undergone surgery.
