A Road to Recovery – 2014 US Figure Skating Championships


I would like to thank all the people for their support and help after I injured my ankle.

A special thank to Dr. Richard Gayle, Dr. Xiao Ping Wang, Donna Flowers, Gilley Nicholson, Tammy Gambill and my family. Thank you so much for believing in me!

  4. Just heard you withdrew from US Jr. Nationals. It is s tough call, but I am glad you made the sensible decision. It is great to see you have you tried your best, but life is not simple, just deal with it the best you can. Wish you speedy recovery and come back stronger next year!

    Remember: “The harder you fall, the higher you can bounce back”

    Good luck Karen, see you next season! Jia Yeo!!!

  5. Hi Karen. What a great attitude! I am so happy to see that you were able to compete in at least the short program. I’m so sorry you had to withdraw from the long program. I didn’t realize that the doctors had only allowed you to Jump starting 3 weeks ago. Keep up all your hard work and it will pay off!
