and it's over. It always sucks to see a skater end their career not on their terms but due to injury.
The USFSA should allow her a spot in the exhibition at Nationals.
She finally accepted that her body could no no longer do what she needed it to do to fulfill her goals. That is sad, but it is better that she not risk an even worse injury.
So sad. I hope Alissa takes the time to heal and comes back for show skating--or competition if she is up to it. She is a beautiful skater. It is skating's loss.
That's a shame, but not unexpected. Thanks for the roller coaster ride Alissa. It was the best of times and the worst of times. Good luck in your future endeavors.
I will miss your beautiful presence on the ice. Good Luck in all that you choose to do.....
And her career goes out the same way as amber's. So unfortunate. She is my inspiration. She is the definition of a champion- one who never gave up no matter the circumstances, or how hard it got, or how many people doubted her. Ill always remember how everyone thought she was done after the 2009-2010 season and she came back and had her best season ever and still fought through the next despite her injury. The most beautiful spins in the world. I will miss her dearly.
An end of an era. Lovely skater with a heart of gold. I will miss her. Good luck Alissa!
My best wishes to Alissa. May she heal completely, skate in shows, and return to competition if that is still her goal.
Sorry to hear this. I know how much she wanted to skate this season. Such a lovely skater. Wishing her all the best.
I'm going to miss Alissa competing although I know she will do better in the shows.
Very sweet Twitter message from Ashley Cain.
Was hoping to compete against one of my idols this week, but now wishing Alissa Czisny a speedy recovery! You will always be a champion.
Alissa has given skating something unparalleled. With few exceptions, the beauty and quality of her spins are beyond those of almost any other skater who ever existed. I hope she will be able to skate on as a pro.
