    She didn't want to disappoint the Canadian fans.

    You could be correct. There was a full page article about Kaetlyn in todays Toronto Sun newspaper. In the article, they mentioned she was still feeling some pain in her foot when she walks. Perhaps she was tensing her right hamstring muscles to take some pressure off the injured left foot, and it became sore overnight. If so, sufficient rest and perhaps a massage session should relax the muscle. However, that left foot still needs to fully heal.

    For sky fly, foot, hamstring its all the same if the skater is Canadian then there is a problem.lets talk and sky fly are really prejudiced posters!

    It's probably for the best she didn't make the GPF. She was off the ice for a long period in September and would have been playing catchup anyway. Last year she peaked too soon and that was a huge mistake. Her next GP is the last one, CoR and a tough field (Kostner, Lipnitskaia). She won't have the burden of home crowd expectations and just take the opportunity to get feedback on her programs.

    Fans would be disappointed if she missed the Olympics because of injury, though... gotta weigh everything against the bigger picture.

    She probably twinged her hamstring on the 2A fall when she flipped out and slipped off her edge and fell.

    Her coach should take the blame for this. She wasn't ready and needed more time to heal and actually run through her programs. She had nothing to gain but everything to lose.

    yep and competing in her next GP risk another premature injury
    I'd say her team is all to blame for this, she should focus on the Olympics
    she wont medal anyways in Cup of Russia, a non threat and is not a "home ice" soil so no inflated marks for Osmond

    I have a different opinion - she needs competition practice and to be competition ready.

    She has said in interviews that it is a different leg than her foot injury. She did not feel it until the next morning. Kaetlyn's team is really protective of her when it comes to injury recovery. If she was not ready and cleared by her medical group then she would have pulled out before the competition. She wasn't ready for Saskskate and WD. She has been very vocal about how much she loves to compete and wants to compete. It is her joy. I don't think anyone is the blame for this. Injuries happen to all athletes. Hers just happened to go public due to WD. She also stated that if it was Nationals or Olympics she would have pushed through it. So it sounds more precautionary than a full blown injury.

    There is no pressure on her in Russia. It would actually be a good experience for her. She will experience the travel and culture there prior to Olympics. There is no pressure to make the GP Final. She will get the opportunity to have her programs done in competition and get feedback with a few months to go. She has mentioned prior that these Olympics are mainly about experience. Her goal was always 2018.
