Oh no, apparently it's serious and she won't be recovered until February??? In that case, her season is basically already over :cry: and when it seemed like she'd finally managed to overcome her nerves too. Hopefully she is able to get better sooner than expected.

But with this injury, I can't help but worry about her jumps. if it's really that serious, then she won't be training them for months...

I'm really sorry to hear this - but thanks for the replies - I worried that something like that might be the case, as I could think of no other sensible reason for her removal.

I hope that her recovery goes better than expected, but health is paramount, and I wish her the best.

I'll miss seeing her at upcoming competitions, but she had a wonderful triumph and nothing can take that away.

So sorry to hear about this injury and hopefully it won't be as bad as expected. Veronika is young and strong and can recover fast. She looked like a different skater this season and and I hope she can come back by January. But if not make it next season.

The stress all of these phenomenal athletes put on their body with figure skating is incredible and then you add it all the ultra jumps. Very tough on the body.

Some more info has come to light about Nika's injury - I may well regret posting this, but I can't let it slide...

It would appear that the reports of her being badly injured were from a site called Telegram. Which is basically a cross between Twitter and What's App. The main takeaway from this is that the person in question had no verifiable information and was basically posting some rumours they heard.

Nika has returned to the ice on two feet

And prior to this week she hadn't been seen on the ice for some days. So basically...she was injured, enough that she couldn't compete at the Baltic Cup safely this week. She was not entered as an alternate at Linz and therefore can't make the JGPF (this is no way indicates that she can't skate in December only that she can't make the criteria NOW). The person on Telegram basically took this isolated fact and turned it into a definitive statement that Nika is so badly injured she can't skate for MONTHS.

And everyone from Reddit to here took at as gospel.

Now that we see Nika on ice the claim is the Academy is risking her health because they're horrible people who don't care, but this is actually her rehabilitation after been OFF the ice.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CUULPOOg3Fj and https://www.instagram.com/p/CUUEnwxjzPj - It was her left hip that was hurt and here she is practicing on her LEFT leg to strengthen it back up again.

I hurt my right shoulder earlier this year and have been going to the Physio every couple of weeks. I am given exercises for THAT shoulder, because it's weak and I need to strengthen it up. I dare say my Physiotherapist is not a psycho trying to injure me further.

Honestly, I'd post this in the Russian Women Thread, but that would probably be as useful as shouting this post under water.

I just hope fellow fans of Nika might be a bit less inclined to see the worst case scenario because of who her coach is.

I hope Nika is fully healthy soon and maybe she'll try a Cup of Russia stage.

There was so much confusion about her injury was it a leg? Ankle? It was her hip.
And then Nika was gonna miss the rest of the junior season and of course that wasn't true either. She's back and likely to skate competitively soon. Nice.

Isn't she in the in the JGP final?

The competition is so tough among the Russian junior girls it's important to compete if healthy. .

Oh and you should have posted this in Russian women's thread what's used to be the Russian lady's thread. It would have made sense to people who were upset saying nika skate on one leg and wondering what the heck was going on. Now it all adds up.

Aaaaah!!! I'm so happy she had such a speedy recovery!:jump::party2::bsplit:I was so worried we wouldn't see her again at all this season and she would sadly have to pull out of the jgpf 😭

I wonder if it would be too much to hope we'll see her at cup of russia? Get some competition and practice in before jgpf?
