Kiira Korpi withdraws from 2013 Worlds

This is not a huge surprise, as Korpi had withdrawn from the European Championships with an Achilles tendon injury. Now comes word from Finland that she will be unable to compete at this season's Worlds (she also missed the event last season).

Korpi had a wonderful start to the 2012-13 season, with her first-ever Grand Prix Final. Hopefully she can build on that as she works toward the Olympics next year. Get well soon, Kiira!

Edited to add: Ice Network now has an English-language story about Korpi's withdrawal.
