    If what has been speculated is confirmed, then the hip dislocated and required emergency surgery to put it back in place. Whether there is damage to ligaments, tendons, the cartilage or the labrum is unknown.

    How does this take place? Well it is not hard to imagine that landing a jump under rotated and twisting around on the hip and leg to get it all the way around and not fall can do this, especially if it is a common occurrence in practices and program.

    I do not understand the plan of AC and her coaches to return to competition and training of jumps that she does not do well, and returning to all the different triples. She also returned to bad technique. The 3 flip she does always gets an edge call and UR most of the time. UR stresses the hip. DO NOT DO IT until she is fully recovered, if ever again. If salcow bothers the hip, leave that out too. I also never understood AC never doubling jumps that will never be rotated as triples. If not enough speed, height and distance - she should double it. She never does. She URs and falls down.

    Her hip can't take it anymore. I do not fully understand the choices made in her training obviously risky items and rushing to return with all the jumps, spins and steps. I think it would have been ok to return with less difficulty and retained quality, just like Kostner has done. It seems she avoided knee surgery all together by giving up the lutz and flip for a long time, then adding back only one per event, the flip. It seems AC rushed back and was reinsured by UR a jump she never did very well.

    I hope she will recover fully. It is heartbreaking.

    Oh noooo this is terrible news. I feel so bad for Alissa, she has been so focused on getting her groove back and then this happens.
    Hugs to Alissa and best wishes for a speedy recovery.

    Argh. I'm crushed. Especially after watching the video of her short. It reminded me how lovely her skating is.

    Promoters, sponsors, TV networks, etc., negotiate the rights to make videos of events. Fancams usually violate someone's copyright. If the copyright holder complains to You Tube, You Tube will take down the video and cancel the account of the uploader.

    I doubt if individual skaters and coaches ever ask people to take down videos.

    Actually they do if it isnt flattering

    That being said ALL usfsa sanctioned events are under their copyright and photography/video restrictions (learned this the hard way). Unless the event organizers recognize you as an official videographer or photographer you can get nastigrams from the bigwigs.

    Awful, awful, awful. She must be in such pain, and I think that at this stage such an injury really ends her competitive career.

    That was in really poor taste.

    Anyway, wishing a complete recovery for Alissa and I hope to see her again on the ice no matter the context (competitions or shows), but only as long as she is fully recovered.

    You are so right, I apologize. Sometimes my stupid side takes over.

    oh snap !

    After pulling out of NHK, in retrospect - should she have simply taken the whole season off (like Flatt did)? It may have been loss of precious time in the short run, but given the condition she was in, and her age, to rush back in and risk re-injury would certainly be career-ending. I know athletes have a tendency to want to rush back into things, and it always ends up hurting them (literally) in the long run.

    Czisny could have taken this season off, and perhaps, if we have good fortune and the 2013 world team is able get back that 3rd spot, she would have a fighting chance for Sochi next season if she SLOWLY got herself back over the remainder of this season and the off-season. But now, that is in major jeopardy. If it's not too bad, perhaps she might still be able to come back (perhaps with a limited jump repertoire) but more likely than not this is the end of her career.
