The skating season is upon us, and with that comes, alas, news about injuries and other issues. Since my previous thread on the subject has been archived:
I decided to start a new one, to help to keep track of what is going on with the skaters. The information is scattered over several specific threads - but also all over fan threads and competition threads. And I think it is safe to say that many of us do not follow every single thread, and thus may miss out on current information. So I think it would be a good idea to have it collected in one place - therefore I will try to "collect" relevant threads here; but note that I am not the most organised creature on the planet (gross understatement!), so I cannot promise how consistent I will be in this.
But also this is a place to share/ask for updates on skaters and their condition.
However, this is not "merely" a News thread - meaning that extracts from articles/interviews about older injuries, recovery &c are also relevant here. And also general articles about injuries, but also, more cheerfully, recovery, rehabilitation, or what is done to prevent injuries from occuring.
Please feel free to use this thread for anything relevant to the topic - and information that you have to share will be very gratefully received indeed!
And note in closing that, despite the perhaps dismal seeming subject, this is thread to celebrate the skaters. They don't "only" go out on the ice and look pretty - a lot of hard work, dedication, and toughness and grit are required to fight through, and this is a thread to acknowledge and honour the skaters.
