MELISSA GREGORY EXPECTED TO MAKE FULL RECOVERY AFTER FALL DURING WARM-UP AT SKATE CANADA


Colorado Springs, Colo. (Nov. 5, 2007) U.S. ice dancer Melissa Gregory suffered a severe fall during Sunday’s free dance warm-up at Skate Canada, however her injuries are not considered serious and, with rest, she is expected to make a full recovery.


Gregory and her on- and off-ice partner, Denis Petukhov, were performing a rotational lift during the warm-up when he lost his grip, causing her to hit the ice chest first and him to go sliding into the boards. The first people on the scene were Italian ice dancers Anna Cappellini and Luca Lanotte, who interrupted their warm-up to check on the Americans. Gregory was put on a stretcher and taken to L'Enfant Jesus, a well-known trauma center located 10-15 minutes away.

Gregory underwent extensive evaluation, including a CT scan, at the hospital. She was discharged later in the afternoon and went back to the hotel to rest.


“Basically, she feels like a truck hit her,” coach Priscilla Hill said.


Gregory’s neck is sore and she has several bruises and cuts on her hip. Petukhov is sore on his hip and neck.


There is no precise timetable for when the duo can resume skating, but Hill does not believe it should keep them off the ice for long.


“I was dropped from a lift when I did pairs, and I had a similar thing with the hip. It took me about a week, although (my injury) was a chipped hip bone. It was tender there for a while,” Hill said. “They need a week to let their bodies heal.”


The team’s status for their next Grand Prix Series assignment, Nov. 22-25 at Cup of Russia, is uncertain.
