Laura Lepistö injured

Laura Lepistö fell while training triple jump combination, and has internal bruises and bleeding in her left hip. She hasn’t been able to skate for three weeks. She doesn’t believe to need any surgical operation, but the start of the next season will postpone. Luckily the most important competitions are during the spring – she says.

This rumor was already brought into our attention by Anna in previous comments on 29th of August, but now it is published officially.
