Olympic Bronze Medalist Joannie Rochette out of Worlds

Joannie Rochette has withdrawn
from the 2010 World Championships

“With everything that has happened over the past few weeks, I have missed a significant amount of training time,” Rochette said in a statement. “That means I’m not prepared either emotionally or physically to skate well at these championships and once again challenge for the podium.

“Whenever I compete I want to give my best to the fans, and to respect the competitive nature of the sport. I just would not be able to do that for either the fans or myself next week.”

Myriane Samson will replace Rochette on Canada's world team.
