    That is really too bad. I was looking forward to seeing her. She did not look happy leaving the arena.

    That is a real shame given how good her short program performance was. :(

    She is still vulnerable from previous injuries so it's best she takes it easy now to ascertain good health and fitness for competition later in this all important season.

    Take care Kaetlyn. Be well and stay well.

    What do you mean by this? That they shouldn't have put her in this comp, and let her heal more first? Or did you mean something else?

    OTOH I am sure she wanted her chance to make the GPF.

    I thought her original injury was to her foot?

    Her previous injury was her left foot. During an interview after the competition, she mentioned she awoke with pain in her right hamstring. During practice, she said the pain was getting worse. Hence they decided to play it safe and withdraw. This injury appears to be something different. She seemed very disappointed during that interview. Hopefully it is nothing serious.

    I don't know the details of Kaetlyn's physical woes, let me get that caveat out there right now.

    But as a general observation, competing with an injury to one part of the body can often lead to another injury to a different part. This can happen because the injured athlete unconsciously makes adjustments to try to protect the injured area, which will screw up the biomechanics of movement, thereby causing follow-on injuries.

    Not saying that this is what happened, but it's very common.

    Edit: Which is why it is almost always the smart thing to do to let the injury fully heal before coming back. (I hope Yuna follows this generally accepted medical protocol and not try to come back before her body is ready)

    Edit2: Hope Kaetlyn's injuries are relatively minor, and she's back to full strength soon.

    It is very easy and common to incur another injury due to an original one owing to compensation with other parts/muscles. E.g. When Tong crushed his fingers and had to take a season off, it was very difficult to come back because he compensated with his arm and shoulder when lifting his partner and incurred subsequent injuries. It didn't help that Pang had grown during that year.

    Considering she was only starting to land her triple jumps just 3 weeks ago there was no need to get this girl back on the ice competing until she was fully healed. She really had nothing to gain and everything to lose.
