Insert weird opinion here
OK I'll bite though I may live to regret asking.It's not lazy to withdraw if its needed, but Shcherbakova knows her body both her parents and coaches asked her to withdraw but were willing to let her make the decision to skate or not, given her parents interview history they don't come off as willing to risk her health; given that I think her issues were more likely tied to a lack of program run throughs/stamina because she's been recovering not necessarily that's she still ill.
What is your opinion, then, on Plushy withdrawing Aliona (apparently against her desire, but on doctor's advice - Anna's doctor also wanted her to withdraw) from Nats? Was he right? Or was he standing in Aliona's way and ruining her chances to make Worlds or even the Olympics?
