Maxim Shablin is to undergo more knee surgery & will miss RN & probably Europeans, they intend to be at Worlds. (Poor Maxim, this is his 3rd surgery in about 6 months!)

Oda has withdrawn from Japanese Nationals & will therefore not be at worlds either. I had read that he was very affected by his recent DIU & punishment & it seems to be true - poor Nodu, I hope he will be back next eason.

Manu, it's certainly very sad. Let's hope indeed, that he will sort things out and will be back next season.
Meanwhile... Takahashi won the Nationals with two quads (one in combination) and two triple axels in his LP.
Brian will have to be very strong and make a superb performance to beat him, I say, Daisuke is his biggest rival in the upcoming Worlds.

He is definitely very strong at the moment, a worthy rival for Brian

But usually competition helps Brian to perform better, so lets hope it will work this time too :super:

Well done to Daisuke who certainly skated superbly at his National championships!

Another snippet of news is that Alisa Drei (29) of Finland has, after suffering a knee injury at SC which won't heal, decided to retire. She is a trained sport physiologyst & hopes to stay in skating. I always admired her for her application & the way she improved beyond recognition when faced with the upcoming challenge in Finnish skating.

I don't think it has been said here and I've just found out that Stefan Lindemann won't attend neither Euros nor Worlds pale He had two operations and now is recovering - but it seems everything is going fine (here's about it).
I really hoped to meet him in Zagreb.

Friends who have met Stefan say he is a very nice & friendly young man. I wish him a full & speedy receovery - another skater with "bounceability"!!

Latest news on Kevin is that he needs a hip operation (not urgent but necessary to carry on skating long term, I'm told) it comes from a bad fall in 2005 & the surgery should be happening in April - after Euros & Worlds, doctors had previously thought it was his back that was injured. I'm sure that his bad fall at GPF didn't help!?!

Oh, it's sad to hear the news about Stefan and Kevin. I wish them both full recovery. I am really looking forward to see Kevin in Zagreb. Pity Lindemann won't attend.

Just noticed a couple of little things from the recent ISU 'decisions' list,

1) Senior & Junior Grand Prix finals are to be united from next season (ie. held in the same place at the same time - could be interesting!)

2) 4Cs 2009 is in Vancouver, obviously a practice run for the Olympics the following year.

Kevin will normally be able to compete next season as well.. He can wait with surgery till the end of the season and will probably have it in April... He needs to recover at least 3 months after that, but that just means a very calm summer. He seems pretty optimistic about it, seeing as now he is skating with pain almost constantly... Would like to see what he does without it.. Smile

Hope Stefan recovers quickly... Never fun to have to miss a season...

Two other snippets - one happy, the other not -

Nancy Kerrigan is expecting a baby in May

Dorothy Hamill has breast cancer

I'm sure that we will all be thinking of them & hoping for the best.

"Przeglad Sportowy" (Polish biggest sport newspaper) announced its choice for Sportsman of the Year yesterday evening during the annual gala. It was 73th edition of the contest - the winners (top 10) were chosen by the readers (this year the top 3 was as follows: 1. Adam Malysz - ski jumper, 2 - Euzeniusz Smolarek - football player, 3 - Otylia Jedrzejczak - swimmer) this may give you some idea of popularity of certain sport disciplines in Poland Rolling Eyes )

Siudeks received "Super champion award" for their overall achievements. clap

i just read this article on johnny.
http://www.phillymag.com/articles/johnny_drama/page1

this journalist kind of annoyed me. she seems to look for scandal more then for news on a figure skater. and also, if you spend one whole day interviewing a skater, shouldn't there be things like questions you came up with and interesting answers, rather then a summary of what other journalist already said???

well, i found this article weirdly done tire la langue but still interesting to read.
