Statement from Jennifer Don “Unfortunately I had to withdraw from ladies singles because I've been plagued with injuries all season, namely my L3 stress fracture in my back. I'm not withdrawing from pairs though. My coaches and I decided it would be best for me to not put the stress on my body of competing in both ladies and pairs, so now I'm just going to focus on the pairs free skate.”
