No Olympics for Kiira…

Due to 14th placement of Juulia Turkkila at Nebelhorn Trophy,

Finland won’t be represented (regarding Ladies Skating) at next Olympics in Sochi on February: most likely, next possible competition for Kiira could be European Championships in Budapest (Hungary), from 13rd  to 19th of January.

Kiira will skip Nebelhorn Trophy & Grand Prix’s dates

As reported by Finnish Figure Skating Association, another injury (to Achilles again!) will prevent Kiira trying to get the Olympics pass for Finland at Nebelhorn Trophy, at the end of this month: her place will be taken by Juulia Turkkila. Kiira will continue her cares and rehab in Finland, but could be possible even a surgery, following a partial tear of left tendon.

In addition, Kiira’s name has been cancelled even from Skate Canada and Trophèe Eric Bompard, the two Grand Prix’s events: they’re both too close to hope in a complete recover.
