    U.S. Figure Skater Hit by Car in Russia!

    U.S. Figure Skater Josh Martin Victim of Hit and Run!

    http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=stor...rtin_injured_2

    ST. PETERSBURG, Russia - U.S. figure skater Josh Martin was hit by a car while roller-blading on his way to practice, leaving him with a broken elbow and leg cuts.

    The hit-and-run accident happened Wednesday in St. Petersburg as he was heading toward his training session with coach Tamara Moskvina, Martin said. He had surgery on his right elbow.

    Martin and Janey Mayne won the silver medal in junior pairs at the U.S. nationals in 2002. He now has teamed with Yoko Kawaguchi of Japan for seniors competitions.

    Yipes, the Americans do need a good Pairs team and we know how well Moskvina trains all Pairs - definite Podium@

    Hope Josh is able to do something while the bone knits.

    Joe, my guess is that they would probably skate for Japan, as it's easier in terms of citizenship. As to success... Moskvina had only limited success with Kawaguchi & Marguntsov, so I don't know how successful sh'e be with Kawaguchi & Martin. Kawaguchi, of course, has some of the best flexibility among pair skaters today.

    In the article, it states that they hope to represent Japan.
