Backstage in Boston III - Worlds wrapped up on Sunday, and I have to say, it was probably one of the greatest events that Iíve ever attended, honestly.
It was everything one might imagine and more, as Boston hit it out of the proverbial park as the host city of this celebrated international skating fete.
Backstage in Boston II - Itís Saturday, the final day of competition at the World Championships here in Boston and I must say, itís been one incredible experience, both on and behind the so-called scenes and it is a world-class event in every respect.
The skating and performance level of these elite skaters has been tremendous in every respect, particularly that of the U.S. world team.
Backstage in Boston - Worlds are well underway here in Boston and they are everything anyone might well imagine it to be.
The athletes, coaches, officials and media members are here in tow from all over the world and the TD Garden is bursting with energy and activity in every way imaginable.
More Boot Issues For Nagasu
Mirai Nagasu missed her practice at the TD Garden Tuesday due to another boot issue. We later learned that issue was similar to the problem she experienced at Nationals in January. In this case the boot outer leather split on the opposite boot and required patching.
Polina Edmunds Withdraws from World Championships
2016 U.S. silver medalist Polina Edmunds has withdrawn from the 2016 ISU World Figure Skating Championships due to a bone bruise in her right foot. Alternate Mirai Nagasu will represent Team USA at the World Championships, which begin March 28, in Boston.
Edmunds' bone bruise has limited her ability to tap with her right foot and perform Lutz and flip jumps. She is expected to make a full recovery with an appropriate period of rest.
"While the decision to withdraw is disappointing, I don't want to compete at the World Championships without performing my hardest technical elements,"Ě Edmunds said. "I go to competition with the goal of representing Team USA to the best of my ability and performing my strongest programs. I will take time to recover and am looking forward to preparing for next season. I wish Team USA and all competitors at Worlds the best of luck."
Nagasu will join Gracie Gold and Ashley Wagner as the ladies entries for the U.S. at the World Championships. Nagasu placed fourth at the 2016 U.S. National Championships in January despite a boot failure in the Short Program that nearly derailed her season. She won the silver medal at the 2016 Four Continents championships in February.
