Iourieva injures knee in training camp in Neryungri
The national team’s training camp in Yakutia is over for 2008 World champion Yekaterina Iourieva, as she suffered an injury, which prevents her from normal training.
«A week ago I strained knee ligaments during the Neryungri training camp. I didn’t even make any demanding exercises – just gymnastics. But, apparently, I won’t be neither Kabaeva, nor Kanaeva. The injury doesn’t prevent me from skiing quietly, I’m just not allowed to accelerate.
«I also can’t shoot in prone position: it requires you to lean on your knee, turn your foot – it hurts. Now I’m going through the recovery process: physical therapy, ointments. But I’ll definitely go to Finland,» Iourieva said to Sports.ru.
