    Alena Leonova will miss Skate Canada due to injury

    http://www.team-russia2014.ru/article/figur/12010.html

    Alena Leonova miss this start due to injury - during training on OFP she landed badly at working element and sprained ankle ligament . This is the special correspondent of the portal TEAM RUSSIA- 2014 Mary Vorobevoj informed itself Alena Leonova .

    " The first stage of the Grand Prix for me was to be a Skate Canada, but I will miss him - said Alena Leonova . - Last week I got injured - ankle sprain . During exercise on OFP I landed badly and was stretching . Only now starting to ride after a week passes, so we decided not to go to Canada . The next stage of the Grand Prix at me in Japan, and there I will definitely go !
    wow, skaters getting injuries are dropping like flies

    I guess her quest for Sochi is over before it even began ?

    That's unfortunate for her, but hopefully she can recover. I'd like to see her go out on a high note, though it's extremely doubtful that she will make the Olympic team.

    Wow Russia is getting decimated by injuries. However, they still have Julia, Liza and Adelina. Isn't Makarova also out too. If Plushy doesn't skate and Kavaguti and Smirnov out and B and S have an injury too this is not looking too good for Team Russia.

    Leonova was a non factor, her cahnces of making Sochi were almost zero
    don't get our hopes up for B/S they will be in Ice Star Minsk this coming weekend

    don't you have Osmond to worry about with her foot injury ? , your sole heir to Canadian Women's glory and Team Canada, lmao

    that's what I was thinking, Old Rochette is still Canada's best lady after all these years
    over inflated Osmond still can't compete with her Flutz and Multiple falls on Non Canadian soil

    Wouldn't that be lovely?

    I'm sorry to hear about Leonova, though. That's a bad way to leave the field in an Olympic year.

    Wow, newsflash Alena realizes that the short program does not suit her thinking of changing it Why doesn't she ever listen to her coach he told her that two seasons ago. This girl has fallen on her head too many times. Has she forgotten last season already That second spot will be a toss up between Adel and Tuk. Elena isn't eligible right? Because going forward I see Julia and Elena vying for positions 1 and 2 and whichever person can control their nerves best will get the third spot. That's if they can even earn the third spot!

    Leonova seems to plan to change her SP and skate in late October at Mishin Cup in Belgorod:

    Not that It will matters and increase her chances of getting into the Olympics
    which is still close to nil

    Why is it close to nil? I'm curious to know real facts. I saw some clips of her training and she seemed fit. She is a 22 years old athlete competing on an elite level. If not for health issues or injuries, what's her problems? Who has seen her skate a program and/or in a competition lately?

    That is mean. I really do hope B and S are okay; I don't wish them bad. I don't know what you mean "my" sole heir in reference to Osmond. I don't know the woman or anyone from Team Canada. I do wish her well though. Be nice, Leonova was doing her best to be a contender for Sochi and with the lack of consistency of all the russian ladies had a chance..

    she's not getting any solid 3-3's nor landing clean triples how does that have a chance ?
    and the injury just nailed her coffin.

    sorry I mean the overhyped-inflated Omsond that you so brag about and will crush anyone including the inconsistent russians,

    Her highest placement last season was 6th; she was 13th at worlds after placing 2nd the year before. I'm not sure what was going on with her but she picked a terrible year to go downhill. She seemed fit last year but mentally she was MIA. I think her coaching situation was a bit of an issue for her.

    I wouldn't say her chances of getting on the team are nil at this point but she's not first, second or even third choice. She'd have to have a great GP season (or rather a great 2nd GP event) and kill it at nationals to get one of those two spots. I think she'll have a very tough time getting past Julia, Liza, Adelina and Elena, even though Elena is too young to go.

    Haven't you figured it out yet? YOU are the one hyping Osmond most, with every thread you derailed into Osmond bashing. YOU are the one who first mentioned Osmond in this thread. YOU are the one keeping her name up in flashing neon lights. Just as was inferred in the Gold hype thread, in the end nobody is going to remember what was said. Especially from you. But they will certainly remember Osmond's popular name. Too bad, so sad. You are not even getting paid for all that publicity.

    Let me help. OSMOND, OSMOND, OSMOND, OSMOND, OSMOND.
    No charge, that was free.
