    What happened? Is she alright? ONe less beautiful skater at worlds I guess. I trust she wasn't worried about Gold, Osmond, Liza, Kanako and Adeline possibly beating her and that she may not have such an easy ride staying in the top ten.

    she is a veteran
    but she left the door open especially for the young ladies

    some other girls are probably getting bigger chances
    like Zijun, Leonova, Gracie and Ashley might get what they came for
    and Osmond now looks like a sure lock for top 5 or bronze medal

    They say she hurt her leg. She wants to be ready for Sochi so she doesn't think it's good to possibly aggravate her injury at Worlds.

    that's smart of her, but I hope whoever skates for Finland can at least place high enough to assure two spots

    Drat! I completely understand that she doesn't want to risk her health before Sochi, but I'm really sorry not to see her at Worlds this year. And I'm sorry that Finland might drop down low enough so as not to get two spots for Sochi.

    Kiira has painful Achilles tendonitis. The pain subsided when she took time off the ice and trained lightly, but once she went back to normal competition training, the pain came back full force. This is the same kind of injury that forced Laura Lepisto to retire prematurely.

    BTW, I think sky_fly20 is seeing pie in the sky when he/she says Osmond is a lock for top 5 or bronze now that Korpi is out.

    Without a doubt. Because Kiira was the only thing standing in the way of that.

    How disappointing for her, she had such a good showing at Rostelecom this season. I really hope she heals enough to compete in Sochi and skate well. Her programs are lovely this year. Maybe she can keep her short for next season. Get well soon Kiira.

    Greetings, Invisiblespiral.

    Maybe when you're celebrating your one-year anniversary on GS, we'll all be watching Kiira compete in Sochi. It would be so convenient for her to get there. After all, Finland is right next to Russia, though of course not the part where the Black Sea is.

    So sorry for Kiira. I hope she heals completely so that she'll be back 100% for the Olympic season.
