We had reported earlier that Anastasia Sidorova was to compete in the European Youth Olympic Festival in 2 weeks time in Trazbon, Turkey. Alan Owen has unfortunately reported on Sidorova’s official website that she is still injured and will not compete at the EYOF.
Withdrawing from Youth Olympic Festival
Unfortunately, Anastasia Sidorova had to withdraw from the European Youth Olympic Festival because her wrist in still in plaster and she never had an opportunity to return to full training
We haven’t seen Sidorova compete since the Russian Junior Championships in April this year, where she won 4 gold medals and 1 silver. She previously had a shoulder injury which kept her out of the 2011 Stella Zakharova Competition. A pity and we will not see the anticipated head to head between Grishina and Iordache, as of Wednesday Grishina is not listed as competing either.
