Hugs to ((Bradie))!
Wow Well that is unfortunate, both for her and US skating.
Given that it's an Olympic year I wonder if she would have a shot at the team via petition, but if she's not good enough to go now, not sure if an extra couple of weeks would make much of a difference (I'm thinking Kwan 2006).
From what I can remember of her, she's had a decent career though. Even a couple of US titles if I recall correctly. And she already got to go to the Olympics once as well.
She has the opportunity based on what Jackie Wong has said to petition to be put on the team, but I made the point earlier in the thread is 4 weeks really going to be enough time for her to make a difference with this foot since the last 6 months haven't resolved the problem and get her into competitive shape to compete at the Olympics? I think its quite telling that she's not even attempting to go out and do watered down content of all doubles at Nationals - that makes me think she's still injured this isn't just her being out of condition. And I was against Kwan getting put on the 06 Olympic team having not competed all year but she was at least an 8-time defending National champ at that point...
