One of the most interesting skaters in World Junior Figure Skating Championships in Sofia Michael Christian Martinez withdrew from the competition. It means that figure skating fans in Bulgaria will not have the chance to see the Filipino skater, who participated in Sochi Olympics last month.
“Michael is withdrawing from the Bulgaria competition. It’s the doctor’s and coach’s decision. Michael’s doctor has recommended that he withdraw from the World Junior since his knee injury has not completely healed yet, and his falls during his current practices are adding to the injuries”, stated his mother Maria Teresa Martinez, quoted by AP.
The skater was advised to take things easy as he recovers from ankle, thigh, and knee injuries.
