    More from Tatjana Flade ‏@Tatjana21:
    Update F. Bourzat: rupture of adductor in his right leg, suffered Jan 9, French Fed reports. Hopes to be ready for Worlds.
    10:07 AM - 17 Jan 13

    Questions:
    - Weren't Pechalat/Bourzat scheduled to perform in the DSC show this past Saturday?
    - And were they in fact able to?

    Statement in French posted on Pechalat/Bourzat's Facebook page:
    The title is:
    DANSE SUR GLACE :
    CHAMPIONNATS D’EUROPE – ZAGREB (CRO)
    N.PECHALAT / F.BOURZAT FORFAITS

    Short article in French also on P/B's FB page:
    Headline:
    Le 17/01/2013 à 19:27:00 | Mis à jour le 17/01/2013 19:27:39
    Patinage art. - Championnat d'Europe :
    Péchalat-Bourzat forfaitNathalie Péchalat et Fabian Bourzat sont contraints de déclarer forfait pour les Championnats d'Europe de Zagreb qui débutent mercredi prochain, la faute à une blessure à l'adducteur contractée par le Français.

    ETA:

    If I understand the L'Equipe article correctly, Camerlengo said that Pechalat was in tears. :(

    And everyone at DSC no doubt feels very sad for all of their sidelined training mates: Weaver/Poje, Czisny, and now P/B. The whole group is overdue for some better luck.

    It also says he has a partial tear of the adducteur, this is really bad news!!

    For strains that involve partial tearing of the adductor muscles, the average recovery time is 1 to 2 months.

    That recovery time is really cutting it close for Worlds, but I hope they don't rush back into training and risk re-injuring the muscle, especially with the Olympics looming close. What bad luck for the DSC though, two back to back injuries and both of their top tier ice dance teams currently out of commission is just incredibly unfortunate.

    Alessandrini/Vaturi are on that list too. I'm getting nervous.

    She sounds bummed she isnt skating. And she is sharing what her mind is going through. I don't see anything negative about what she posted. She is making light of a bad situation.

    Yikes, I never would have dreamed that for some people the innocent word "disorientation" would be loaded with some sort of evil connotation.
    As I have tried to explain above, my original usage of it was intended to be a supportive reference to Pechalat's Facebook message.
    I never said or implied that she was moping. I never said anything critical or judgmental about her at all -- because I have nothing but admiration for P/B.
    And I find it very endearing that she misses her partner. (Lest there be any confusion: that comment is a compliment to the strong bonds between Pechalat and Bourzat. Please do not try to twist it into something negative.)

    [As for accuracy of interpretation, Buttercup, one thing I can say with complete certainty is that your posts show that you twice have badly misinterpreted me. ]
