Has this news already been posted somewhere? I'm very sad to hear this... Elena's been my favorite newbie of this season and I was so hoping she competes in the Jr. Worlds and possibly defends the champion title and makes a history for herself by becoming the first ever to do so.
(Correct me if I'm wrong, but has there been any lady skater who repeated Jr. World gold medalist in the history of the competition?)
My wish for her is that she overcomes her injuries and the growth spurts really well during the off-season and emerges as a strong medal contender among the top senior ladies in next season. Knock on wood and keep my fingers crossed!!!
