Pechalat and Bourzat May Withdraw From Worlds

New, 1 comment

France's ice dancing team Nathalie Pechalat and Fabian Bourzat cannot catch a break. Pechalat broke her nose in a recent practice and now the team might have to withdraw from the upcoming world figure skating championships, according to Yahoo!.

Pechalat is undergoing surgery this week. What a disappointment for the duo, who were on track to possibly medal this season (it would be their first world medal) in the worlds in their home country. They were also on track for a medal last year before some costly and unusual errors took them out of the running. The team has finished in fourth place at worlds the last two seasons.

Good luck to Pechalat in her recovery.
