    Kiira Korpi withdraws from European Figure Skating Championships

    Kiira Korpi withdraws from European Figure Skating Championships due to a left leg’s Achilles injury.

    She says that at the moment she is not able to skate. Recovery is already better but she doesn't want to risk her participation for the upcoming World Championships.

    Alisa Mikonsaari will take Korpi's place at Euros.

    That's such a pity, she was in a such good shape this season so far. I hope she can fully recover for worlds

    Poor thing. I wonder if she'll be better by worlds? In her older age, once the injuries start they tend to pile up. I hope she takes the time to heal completely before coming back...

    Kiira is 24 and at that age, injuries tend to become chronic.

    Oh, no! That's really too bad. She's one of the delights of the European championship. I hope she recovers for Worlds. Achilles tendon injuries are tricky.
