Medvedeva injured!

Medvedeva injured!

Postby Virginia » Tue Nov 21, 2017 8:17 pm

NBC Sports is reporting that Yevgenia has bone cracks in her right foot.

http://olympics.nbcsports.com/2017/11/21/yevgenia-medvedeva-foot-injury-figure-skating/

Supposedly she's planning to skate the GPF in early December (if doctors permit it) with Russian Nationals following a couple weeks later. Right now, though, she's in a cast.

Sounds risky to me. I've never heard the term "bone cracks" before, but I can't imagine they're too different than stress fractures. If she keeps skating she could well break a bone less than two months before the Olympics, and we all know what happens if she stops training.

oh no! First Hanyu, then Medvedeva. I hope she recovers in time for the Olympics.

It's been a crazy season so far!

I can't help but blame overtraining. In both cases.

She has withdrawn from the GP Final so one more spot is now open. Hoping Ashley Wagner can claim that spot this weekend at Skate America.

Maleeva, the article states that she MIGHT have to withdraw from the Grand Prix Final depending on the advice of her doctors, but there are recent pics of her out there sporting a cast over her foot, so it'd be foolish for her to compete here.

Even ff Medvedeva is definitely out, it doesn't change the equation for Ashley Wagner. She's gotta win Skate America to qualify for the Grand Prix Final.

Your thoughts...

Russian media outlets are reporting that Medvedeva's recovery is going well and that she is planning to compete at Russian Nationals. Kinda foolish decision, if you ask me.
